Mike Thomas trade: Jaguars receive 2014 5th round pick

Mike Ehrmann

The Jacksonville Jaguars traded Mike Thomas for a fifth round draft pick in 2014, according to a report.

The Jacksonville Jaguars received a 2014 fifth round pick in exchange for wide receiver Mike Thomas, who was sent to the Detroit Lions in a trade on Tuesday. Jason La Canfora reported the compensation on Tuesday night, as well as the Lions looking to stay active before the trade deadline.

As for the Jaguars, it seems the organization saw the need to part with the wide receiver it drafted in the fourth round three years ago. While he was successful early on, there hasn't been much from the receiver out of Arizona since his contract extension in 2011. Thomas ended the 2011 season with 44 receptions for 415 yards and one touchdown and continued to disappoint thus far during the 2012 season.

The Jags are just 1-6 on the season, ranked last in the AFC South Division standings. Their passing game has struggled mightily, ranking last in passing yards per game.
