The Jacksonville Sharks are pleased to announce the return of wide receiver Jamarko Simmons. The Sharks reactivated Simmons on Tuesday, July 19, 2011.
Simmons (6'3, 235) returns to the Sharks after being signed to the UFL's Virginia Destroyers. Simmons rejoins the Sharks on the heels of the announcement by the UFL that the league is pushing back its training camps 30 days. The Destroyers loss is the Sharks gain. Simmons brings his physical style of play back to Jacksonville as the Sharks prepare for the playoffs. In eight games this season as a Shark, Simmons tallied six rushing touchdowns on only nine attempts while also adding 22 receptions for 221 yards and 6 touchdowns in the passing game. Simmons also had seven total tackles and a fumble forced on special teams.
