Osgood could be a Jaguar

Chargers special-teams ace and frustrated receiver Kassim Osgood said Thursday via Twitter that he’d prefer a three-percent chance of playing wideout in Siberia to his zero-percent chance of taking offensive snaps in San Diego.

More recently, he has said he is flying east for a meeting with a possible new team that would give him a “legit shot” at playing receiver.

We’ve now learned he’s not flying all the way to Siberia.

Per a league source, Osgood is meeting with the Jaguars, a team that’s always on the lockout for a few good men with a couple of good hands — and one or two who couldn’t catch chlamydia in a cathouse.

And though Siberia isn’t Jacksonville, from Osgood’s perspective it might as well be.  The Salinas, California native played college football at San Diego State and has been with the Chargers for his entire career, since 2003.

  1. Of course if he was trying to fly to Siberia, flying east from San Diego is the long way to get there.
    Another player being lied to by the team. Osgood has no more chance to play WR for significant minutes in Jacksonville than I do. Its kind of like College recruiting in a way, “Sure kid, of course you have a good chance to walk in and start, never mind we have an All-American 2 year starter at that position, I’m sure you’ll have a legit chance to start….”

  2. Jacksonville is just a warmer version of Siberia.
    If you have ever been to Jax, you know what I am saying.

  3. This dude is a straight Special teamer, Malcolm Floyd jumped over him on the depth chart. How many garbage WR’s are Jacksonville going to sign?

  4. “Jacksonville is just a warmer version of Siberia.

    Yeah, other than the world class golf courses and sandy beaches. Just like, um, Siberia. Right?

  5. “Jacksonville is just a warmer version of Siberia.”
    What an ignorant thing to say!
    I’ve been to a lot of places, and believe me Jacksonville is a place I would like to call home.

  6. How many Garbage WR’s are Jacksonville going to sign? Umm how many have they signed so far? Did they recently go out and sign a bunch of garbage WR’s otherwise wtf are you talking about?

    I think you’re overestimating the calibre of receivers the Jags currently have.

  9. KO can catch for sure. He can play WR but wasn’t going to play over the guys in San Diego. Good Luck KO wherever you go.

  10. Jax has Mike Sims-Walker who is a legit #1, and Mike Thomas who is a good slot WR. Osgood will either fight for the #2 spot, or push a guy like Jarret Dillard to play better.

    So the best thing you could come up with are 2 receivers from seven years ago. Sadly, most of our Garbage WRs came from the Jag’s missing horribly on first round busts. You could have at least thrown out Jerry Porter in your argument, but if you can’t even get that close in your argument you might as well refrain from posting.
    If he comes, he’ll get a shot. If he blows it, he’ll be gone. You can bet the Jags would offer a no risk contract. What’s the harm, there is something they see, even if its just special teams ability.
