Another Jacksonville Jaguar has been arrested due to drug possession.  This time it is an ex-jaguar and the best wide receiver in the franchise's history.

Jimmy Smith was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after being pulled over in Jacksonville, Florida.

Officers found both crack cocaine and marijuana in the ex-NFL star's car.  Smith was also driving with a suspended license. 

This should not come as too much of a shocker, as Smith has been in trouble with cocaine in his past. 

In 2001, Smith was found to have had cocaine in his system after being arrested for drunken driving. 

Another class-act Jacksonville Jaguar, Smith joins countless other Jaguars who have been caught with drugs in the past.

This is another reason why one of the Jaguars' main goals this year is to be a good team on and off the field.

Coach Jack Del Rio mentioned many times at the team's logo and uniform unveiling yesterday that he wants a team that consists of "good human beings." 

With Smith being a face of the franchise, the negativity of this story only links more negativity to the organization.

With plenty of talented prospects in this year's draft class, don't be surprised if the Jaguars pass on some of the more talented players just because of off-the-field issues.
