Jaguars Sign WR's Edwards & Hynes

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (May 19, 2006) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars added two veteran wide receivers, signing unrestricted free agents Troy Edwards and Randy Hymes.

The signings come eight days after Jimmy Smith retired.

Edwards played for the Jaguars in 2003 and 2004, and played in three games for the Lions in 2005. In 92 NFL games, including three seasons with Pittsburgh (1999-2001) and one with St. Louis (2002), the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Edwards has 203 receptions for 2,404 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Hymes spent all five of his seasons in Baltimore after the Ravens originally signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2002. The 6-3, 211-pound Hymes played in all 16 games a year ago, with three starts, 11 catches for 132 yards and two scores. In 37 career games, Hymes has caught 43 passes for 578 yards and four touchdowns.

Last week, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said the team wouldn't sign a veteran receiver to replace Smith.

"Our approach will be to develop the guys that we have and we have some young talent at that position," Del Rio said. "I remain very confident in the guys that we have that they're going to be able to help us be real effective."
