Draft Scout Cecil Shorts News
08/17/15 - WR Cecil Shorts caught a 58-yard touchdown pass on a throw from quarterback Brian Hoyer.
08/13/15 - WR Cecil Shorts is the third receiver and will push Nate Washington for playing time. Shorts has an inside-outside versatile role.
03/17/15 - WR Cecil Shorts III left the Jaguars for the Texans Monday (March 16), agreeing to terms on a two-year, $6 million contract that includes $2.5M guaranteed.
A fourth-round pick in 2011, Shorts caught 176 passes for 2,343 yards and 12 touchdowns in four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. His best season was 2012, when he caught 55 passes for 979 yards and seven touchdowns.
Injuries have been major impediments to his career as Shorts has missed 14 games with various ailments, including a concussion and issues with his groin and hamstring.
In 13 games last season, Shorts caught 53 passes for 557 yards and one touchdown.
03/08/15 - WR Cecil Shorts III, unrestricted FA update, ended up leading the team in catches a year ago but his total of 53 grabs was not what the Jaguars had expected. Had he put up bigger numbers during the 2014 season, Shorts likely would have had his contract extended for several more seasons. But the Jaguars wanted to see if he could stay healthy all year and show them the production needed for a No. 1 receiver. He stayed healthy but the numbers were down and as a result, he'll likely be moving on.
11/27/14 - WR Cecil Shorts practiced full Thursday after missing practice Wednesday with a case of the flu.
