Jaguars, Mohamed Massaquoi agree

The Jaguars and wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi have agreed to a deal, the club confirmed Friday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Massaquoi received a two-year contract.

Massaquoi, 26, has played the last four seasons in Cleveland. In 2012, he caught 17 passes for 254 yards in nine games and dealt with hamstring and knee ailments. Injuries have been an issue for him in the last two seasons, and he had multiple concussions in his Cleveland career.

However, if Massaquoi is healthy, he could improve the Jaguars’ wideout depth behind Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon. Massaquoi, who has made 43 starts, has gained 14.8 yards per catch since entering the NFL in 2009.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union first reported the Massaquoi agreement.

  1. For a cheap pickup, I like it. Shorts III and Blackmon are the starters, so to have a physical guy like Massaquoi is a plus compared to what we had last year. Keep going Caldwell, keep going.

  2. Always liked him on the Browns. He started off really well last season, but he got hurt AGAIN. If he can stay healthy – and that’s a big IF – he can be very productive. But, concussions have been an issue. He’s not been the same player since the Harrison hit in 2010.

  3. Would have been a nice guy for just about any team to take a flier on.

    Good grab for the Jags!

  4. Good pick up. He is a cheap pick up that will be trying to prove he still has it. He will help create a good competition for the last 2 or 3 receiver spots. Hopefully he can stay healthy and give us a nice physical target to pair with shorts and blackmon.

  5. This is a make or break year for MoMass to succeed. When he was healthy, the Browns didn’t have a QB with the arm to get him the ball. When the Browns had Weeden’s arm, Mo was hurt. Bad timing all around.

    Good luck, Mo.

    Go Brownies!

  6. What does it say that the Lions weren’t interested at all in Massaquoi? He was Stafford’s favorite target at UGA, and the Lions have a huge need for outside-the-numbers wideouts. Seemed like a perfect match.

  7. I laughed out loud when I read a comment calling him a physical receiver. He isn’t at all. He hears footsteps on everyplay. James Harrison’s hit may have been dirty and unfair, but it killed this kids career.

  8. His career highlight was catching the game winning pass in 2011 vs. Miami and later being in a “Dan Lebatard Show” version of Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music”.

  9. Good kid and good player when he has a QB…very good hands and route runner but wont out run you.

    I personally have seen this kid since high school here in Charlotte…played alongside Hakeem Nicks at WR with Chris Leak at QB! Imagine the passing yards they put up..
