Mike Sims-Walker WR JAC 5 Months
Free agent Mike Sims-Walker has been released by the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Sims-Walker's decline has been nothing short of remarkable since he posted a 63/869/7 line for the Jaguars in 2009. MSW is still only 29, but his footballin' days are through.

Ex-Jaguars WR Mike Sims-Walker has signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL.
Sims-Walker tried out for the Jets in minicamp, but couldn't earn a roster spot. MSW has just 12 catches since the end of the 2010 season. His NFL days are likely through.

Jets coach Rex Ryan said free agent WR Mike Sims-Walker hasn't stood out at minicamp.
Sims-Walker is attending the Jets' minicamp on a tryout basis. His inability to jump out from a receiving corps currently featuring Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill as it's starters is concerning. Sims-Walker's NFL career is on life support.

Free agent Mike Sims-Walker will try out for the Jets at their minicamp next week.
Sims-Walker missed all of last season while recovering from knee surgery and hasn't appeared in the NFL since 2011. The Jets have also invited free agents Kellen Winslow and Leger Douzable to their minicamp on a tryout basis.

In addition to Donte' Stallworth, the Dolphins also worked out free agent WRs Mike Sims-Walker and Brian Tyms on Thursday.
The Dolphins are desperate to add talent at the position, but Sims-Walker isn't much of an upgrade at this point in his career. He worked out for the Texans and Titans earlier in the summer, the latter of which was reportedly "not so good."

Free agent WR Mike Sims-Walker's Tuesday workout with the Titans was reportedly "not so good."
Career special teamer Jerheme Urban looked better, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Sims-Walker couldn't earn a roster spot with the receiver-needy Texans during OTAs, and the latest dismal workout suggests his career may have hit the skids for good. The 27-year-old caught 12 balls in six appearances last season.

Free agent WR Mike Sims-Walker is working out for the Titans on Tuesday.
The Nashville Tennessean's John Glennon believes there's "no doubt" the move is related to Kenny Britt's recent "on- and off-field difficulties." MSW was unable to latch on with the veteran-receiver needy Texans earlier this summer despite two different tryouts, so it's doubtful he'll impress the Titans during his workout.

Free agent WR Mike Sims-Walker is participating in Texans minicamp this week.
Coach Gary Kubiak has expressed at least mild concern about the lack of experienced depth at the position. Sims-Walker has already worked out for the Texans once this offseason, and Kubiak indicated that he "looked good" in Tuesday's practice. The coaching staff will take the three days of minicamp to evaluate Sims-Walker tape before signing the veteran as competition for Lestar Jean.

The Texans may still be interested in WR Mike Sims-Walker and RB Derrick Ward.
Sims-Walker was in for a workout on May 30, but was not signed. The team is looking for veteran depth behind Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter. Ward is looking for a better opportunity, but may have to settle on a return to Houston on the cheap. That, of course, assumes the team is interested after signing Justin Forsett last week.

The Texans will work out free agent Mike Sims-Walker on Wednesday.
Former Seahawks RB Justin Forsett will be at the same workout. It was rumored during the 2011 lockout that the Texans had interest in Sims-Walker, and they have a small receiver need with Andre Johnson rehabbing from a knee scope. Sims-Walker was cut by the Rams during last season, then resurfaced with the Jags. He was placed on injured reserve due to knee surgery in November.
