Wilford appeared to be in danger of being the odd man out in the offseason when the Jaguars signed veteran free agent Dennis Northcutt and drafted two more receivers, Mike Walker and John Broussard. Yet Wilford now is back in the familiar position of working with the first unit in the Jaguars' offseason drills.
Reggie Williams was sidelined the last two weeks with a broken finger and a pulled hamstring. Jones practiced Tuesday, but was out last week with a quadricep injury that still hasn't completely healed. Jones missed the last two days for personal reasons.

Who do you think makes it to opening day in one piece?
I'm predicting we start the season with Nothcutt and Wilford
“I don’t see a guy who’s an automatic lineup guy,” Monken told jaguars.com on Wednesday. Asked to describe the state of the team’s wide receiver positions, Monken said, “Up in the air. You have a number of guys battling for the spots we have on the roster. We’re forcing everyone to play every position. No one is an ‘X,’” he said, “X” referring to the “number one wide receiver” distinction.
Free agent addition Dennis Northcutt is providing a strong example of the work ethic and attention to detail Monken is seeking in the team’s younger receivers. Behind Northcutt are former first-round picks Reggie Williams and Matt Jones, veteran Ernest Wilford, hold-over Charles Sharon and rookie draft picks Mike Walker and John Broussard.
