Jaguars’ Cecil Shorts III Gets His Shot

[1]JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The emergence of receiver Cecil Shorts III made it easy for the Jacksonville Jaguars to part ways with Mike Thomas.

The Jaguars traded Thomas to the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, creating more opportunities for Shorts and rookies Justin Blackmon and Kevin Elliott.

Getting rid of Thomas was just part of the team’s tweaks.

Mularkey said Shorts will continue to start at the X receiver position, meaning Laurent Robinson could wind up as a well-paid slot receiver. Jacksonville also claimed fourth-year receiver Anthony Armstrong off waivers from the Miami Dolphins.

Armstrong is unlikely to play Sunday against Detroit.

Robinson, meanwhile, practiced Wednesday. But even if he returns against the Lions, he probably won’t be in the starting lineup.
