The Jacksonville Jaguars are clearly in rebuilding mode with just one win this season.

On Tuesday, the Jaguars began doing some dealing, trading receiver Mike Thomas to the Detroit Lions, per The Lions were looking for help at the position, having lost Nate Burleson for the season.

There is no word yet on what the Jaguars will receive as compensation, but the chances are good that it is a future draft pick.

Thomas might not be familiar with the Lions' offense, but he should be plenty familiar with his first opponent wearing Honolulu Blue. The Lions face the Jaguars on Sunday.
