After spending two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, wide receiver Troy Williamson will wear this team’s NFL jerseys for one more year as he has signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars, who promise to pay him $100,000 signing bonus and a workout bonus.
Williamson was scheduled to be a restricted free agent, but opted to sign a contract with the team that included guaranteed money. His base salary is slightly less than the $900,000 that the Baltimore Ravens offered to wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth on a one-year contract earlier this week.
Being picked by the Minnesota Vikings as a first-round draft pick, Williamson caught five passes last season as he caught only three passes. However, he ended his season early after he tore his labrum in September. His full career numbers are 87 caught passes for 1,131 yards and four touchdowns.
