Jaguars WRs quiet in Week 16 win vs. Titans
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jaguars wide receivers Marqise Lee led his team with four receptions and 65 yards in his team's 21-13 win over the Titans in Week 16.

The Jaguars managed to pick up just 124 receiving yards on the day and Lee was responsible for more than half of that total while seeing six targets. Allen Hurns was also targeted six times, picking up 26 yards on three receptions. Cecil Shorts caught just two of his seven targets for 15 yards but also completed a nine-yard pass.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis managed just six yards on two receptions but did secure the team's only receiving touchdown on a four-yard strike at the end of the first half. The Jaguars will hit the road to face the Texans in the season finale next Sunday.

Jaguars WR Shorts doing himself no favors this season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The struggles of Jaguars wideout Cecil Shorts this season could cost him dearly, according to ESPN. He is playing in the final season of a four-year contract.

His numbers have weakened every year since 2012, when he broke through with 55 catches for 979 yards and seven touchdowns. His YPR a year ago dropped from 17.8 to 11.8 and he reached the end zone just three times. He has just 40 receptions for 419 yards and one score in 2014.

The Jaguars are likely to allow Shorts walk in free agency, but he claims to be not looking that far ahead.

"That's out of my control," he said. "I don't even think like that. Do I want to be here? Yeah, so we'll deal with that when the offseason comes, but right now we've got three games left so just trying to focus on Baltimore and try to get a little upset going."

Cecil Shorts 'intrigued' by free agency, wants to return to Jaguars
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts indicated Wednesday that he's "focused on Baltimore," the team's Week 15 opponent, as well as closing the season out strong but is "intrigued" by free agency, the Florida Times-Union reports.

"I really like what’s going on here," Shorts added. "I like how [general manager] Dave [Caldwell] is building the team, I like what [owner] Shad [Khan] is putting into the team and I’m a huge fan of [coach] Gus [Bradley] and the coaching staff. This is a team I feel is going in the right direction and I would feel terrible if I end up somewhere else and this team [goes], ‘Boom [and gets better],’ because I’ve been through the rough times."

Shorts was held to three yards on two catches in Week 14 despite receving 10 targets. He's managed 40 catches for 419 yards with one touchdown in 2014.

Jaguars' Shorts has third straight season with at least 40 catches
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts tied rookie receiver Allen Hurns with a team-high 10 targets Sunday against the Texans. However, Shorts couldn't do much despite being heavily targeted, as he finished with two catches for 3 yards.

Despite the poor outing, Shorts became the fifth player in Jaguars history with at least 40 receptions in three straight seasons, joining Jimmy Smith, Keenan McCardell, Mike Thomas and Maurice Jones-Drew.

Shorts, however, had his scoreless streak extended to nine games. Shorts has just one touchdown in 10 games this season.

The Jaguars are back in action Week 15 at Baltimore.
