Lions worked out free agent WR Troy Williamson and QBs Josh McCown and J.T. O'Sullivan on Monday.
Fox Sports' Adam Caplan points out that the Lions have now worked out Williamson twice, so they could be serious about signing him. The team will only sign McCown or O'Sullivan if Matthew Stafford (shoulder) lands on I.R. Tue, Nov 30, 2010 01:58:00 PM

Jaguars released WR Troy Williamson, TE Ernest Wilford, LB Alvin Bowen, LB Teddy Lehman, and OG Kynan Forney.

Tiquan Undwerwood, who showed better separation skills than Williamson over the past month, will enter the season as the fifth receiver. It looks like guards Vince Manuwai and Justin Smiley kept their roster spots at Forney's expense.

If the Jaguars keep five receivers, as expected, Troy Williamson will have to beat out Tiquan Underwood for the final spot.

For the second straight year, Underwood starred in OTAs only to disappear once the hitting started. Mike Sims-Walker, Mike Thomas, Kassim Osgood, and Jarett Dillard are considered locks. The winner of the No. 5 battle will be nothing more than an occasional deep threat.

Jaguars.com's Vic Ketchman says Troy Williamson "hasn't been written off," but he better "turn it on soon."

Williamson, whose hands have failed him for years, suffered another drop in a recent scrimmage against the Falcons. He's not going to beat out Mike Thomas for the No. 2 job, and Jarett Dillard may pass him as soon as he recovers from a stress fracture.

Contrary to previous reports, coach Jack Del Rio indicated that Troy Williamson is very much in the mix for the Jaguars' No. 2 receiver job.

Del Rio insists Williamson is actually playing better in this year's camp than he did last year before a breakout preseason. He's battling Mike Thomas and Jarett Dillard, though Dillard has been sidelined with a stress fracture in his foot. Don't expect fantasy value to come out of this situation unless Thomas begins to clearly separate.

The Jaguars' website reiterates that Troy Williamson doesn't appear to be in the mix for the team's No. 2 receiver job.

The Jaguars re-signed Williamson for just over $1 million in February, but he was "invisible" for much of minicamp season. The wideout job opposite Mike Sims-Walker is expected to come down to Mike Thomas and Jarett Dillard.

Troy Williamson was "invisible" for much of camp, according to beat writer Vito Stellino.

With Mike Thomas, Jarrett Dillard and Tiquan Underwood stepping up, Williamson is on the roster bubble. The former No. 7 overall pick has a lot of ground to make up in training camp.

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio singled out Troy Williamson after he dropped a ball in OTAs Tuesday.

"That got my attention," Del Rio said. "I want him to catch the ball." We're not going to make a big deal about a drop in minicamp, but the buzz around Williamson has not been good this offseason. It seems like Mike Thomas is being handed the No. 2 receiver job for now, with Jarett Dillard and Williamson as afterthoughts. Williamson has three months to make up ground.

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter didn't mention Troy Williamson when asked about the Jaguars' No. 2 receiver position.

Koetter mentioned Mike Thomas first and Jarett Dillard second. "We know Mike Thomas has a chance to be, at the least, a very good slot receiver," said Koetter. "We have to find out if Mike can do more than that. Our big question is who’s the two right now? Mike and J.D. (Dillard), are they the number two?" This doesn't mean Williamson is out of the mix, but the Jags clearly want one of their second-year receivers to emerge.

Jaguars.com's Vic Ketchman anticipates that the team's No. 2 receiver battle will come down to Troy Williamson and Mike Thomas.

Ketchman, who attends most Jags practices, envisions Jarett Dillard as "more of a specific-role type of player," -- most likely a slot receiver. Thomas and Williamson both have sensational speed, but Thomas has an early edge after playing a major role last season. Williamson was on injured reserve.

Troy Williamson (torn labrum) expects to be cleared for full participation in the Jags' offseason program.

Williamson has already begun conditioning and will likely participate fully in OTAs. Barring a high draft pick at receiver, Williamson will compete with Kassim Osgood and Mike Thomas for the starting job opposite Mike Sims-Walker.

Jaguars re-signed WR Troy Williamson to a one-year contract worth roughly $1 million, including a $100,000 signing bonus.

Williamson, 27 in April, missed virtually all of 2009 with a torn labrum after an impressive preseason that earned him the opening-day start over Mike Sims-Walker. He may get a chance to compete outside with Mike Thomas now that Torry Holt is gone. Though it's hard to have any kind of expectations for the disappointing former No. 7 overall pick, Williamson's progress will be worth monitoring this offseason. The guy can still flat-out fly.

Troy Williamson (injured reserve, torn labrum) underwent shoulder surgery in Alabama on Friday.

Williamson, still just 26 with blazing speed, is slated for free agency in 2010. He has plenty of time to get healthy enough to pass physicals before next March, but will probably have to settle for a minimum-salary deal.

Jaguars placed WR Troy Williamson (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Williamson tore his labrum in Week 2. He rose from the roster bubble to an opening week starter, perhaps the best stretch of his career, but this injury crushes any momentum. He's a free agent after the year and will find a job, but the former top-ten pick seems likely to go the way of Reggie Williams.

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio claimed Monday that he hasn't heard Troy Williamson's shoulder injury is season ending.

Profootballtalk was the first to report that Williamson's 2009 season is over, and the Florida Times Union confirmed his torn labrum. The Jags haven't put Williamson on I.R. yet, so perhaps they're getting a second opinion.
