NFL: Jaguars re-sign WR Williamson


Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. ó The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed wide receiver Troy Williamson, hoping he can fill the void left by Torry Holtís departure.

Williamson, a former first-round draft pick by Minnesota, would have become a restricted free agent Friday. Contract terms were not released Tuesday.
Traded to the Jaguars in February 2008, Williamson earned a starting role last year before sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 2. He has 87 receptions for 1,131 yards and four touchdowns in his five-year career.
Williamson will be given a chance to earn a starting spot opposite Mike Walker this season. Holt held the spot last season, but was released last month.
