All-Time Jaguar Great WR Jimmy Smith In Jail For Next Six Years

Jimmy Smith

Former receiver Jimmy Smith has begun serving a six-year prison term in Mississippi for drug possession and weapons charges, online state corrections records show, the Associated Press reports.

The Mississippi Department of Corrections’ website says the 44-year-old Smith entered the prison system in late March and was recently moved to a facility in Yazoo City. He was sentenced by a Madison County court to two years for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and four years for possession of cocaine, records show.

WJXX-TV in Jacksonville, Fla., first reported Smith’s sentence. His tentative release date is listed as Nov. 8, 2018.

Smith, a standout at Jackson State drafted in the second round by the Dallas Cowboys in 1992, played 13 seasons in the NFL, including 11 for the Jaguars. He played in the team’s inaugural season in 1995 and became its all-time leading receiver before his retirement in 2005.

Smith has had multiple run-ins with police since his playing days, and was sentenced to 18 months of probation for a drug possession charge in 2009 in Jacksonville.
