Remember former NFL wide receiver Jimmy Smith? If his name doesn't ring a bell, you should probably reconsider call yourself a football fan. We kid. Well, sorta. You see, when Smith finally hung up his cleats in 2005, he left behind a slew of NFL records, including most consecutive games with at least five receptions (21) and most games in a season with at least 49 receiving yards (16; every game in the 2001 campaign). Then, there was his time as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars where he played from 1995-2005 and recorded such records as most career catches, receiving yards, touchdown receptions, receptions in a season, etc.
You get the idea. Well, apparently, life after the NFL hasn't been so easy for Smith, who in March started his six-year jail sentence in a Mississippi prison. Two of those years stem from a possession of a firearm by a convicted felon charge while the remaining years are for cocaine possession. His tentative release date is November 8, 2018. Ouch.
Maybe we'll break out Madden 2000 and play as the Jaguars in his honor.
