Calling Osgood a “wide receiver” is admittedly generous. He rarely plays on offense, focusing more on special teams. Osgood was due a 2012 base salary of over $2 million. The Jags weren’t going to may that much for a gunner.
Turning 32 in May, Osgood figures to settle for a deal worth closer to the NFL minimum as he enters unrestricted free agency.
