Former Gamecocks Receiver Troy Williamson Re-Signs with Jacksonville Jaguars

By

The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed former Gamecock receiver Troy Williamson to a one-year contract worth roughly $1 million, including a $100,000 signing bonus.  That will help pay the bills.

Williamson, a former first-round pick with the Minnesota Vikings, was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason. He had an excellent 2009 preseason with Jacksonville that earned him the opening-day start over Mike Sims-Walker but missed the final 14 games of the season after suffering a torn labrum in Week 2.

Williamson, 27 in April, has appeared in just 10 games over the past two seasons, with eight catches over that span.  He has loads of talent as wintessed by Carolina fans while he wore the garnet and black but has had a rocky go at it in the NFL thus far.  He will have a chance to shine in Jacksonville this year as he competes with Mike Thomas at receiver for playing time in 2010. 

Good luck and heck you may have Tim Tebow throwing you the ball….
