Jets agree to deal with Mohamed Massaquoi

AP

Even if there was more clarity about wide receiver Santonio Holmes’ status for the regular season, the Jets would have one of the thinnest wide receiver groups in all the NFL.

It’s no surprise, then, that they’ve made a move to add a veteran to the mix. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the team has agreed to terms with Mohamed Massaquoi, who was released by the Jaguars earlier this week.

You’ll likely note that the 2013 Jaguars do not appear to be shaping up to be one of the great offensive teams of all time, so the fact that Massaquoi wasn’t able to beat out the likes of Jordan Shipley and Mike Brown for a job isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of his capabilities. The Jets aren’t any closer to being a great offensive team, though, and Massaquoi should have a chance to earn a spot on a depth chart that doesn’t have many sure bets to stick beyond Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley.

Massaquoi was a second-round pick of the Browns in 2009 and caught 118 passes for 1,745 yards and seven touchdowns with Cleveland over the last four years.

  1. So when do the jets bail on Rex Ryan? His talent evaluation has been terrible.

    By week 6 you will see Geno Smith starting, if not earlier, and by week 12 you’ll see Rex trot out some other bum.

    If jets fans knew anything about football, the franchise would be in much better shape.

    Instead, the fan base is so easily appeased, the front office makes decisions that keep people coming to the stadium instead of doing whats right for the franchise. Rex Ryan and his “personality” is just one example of this.

  2. I almost read the last sentence without reading the ENTIRE thing. I was like wow, 118 catches and 1700 yards in one year……..but then I finished and was like, oh, yeeeeeeeeeah.

  3. I know the Jets dont have many names but the one thing they have going for them is Martys O scheme. In the past Jets fans have been forced to watch ultra-conservative idiots like Shotty and Sporano. Geno is gonna start game 1. Idzik did it with Wilson after giving Flynn a big contract, He’ll surely sit Sanchez in a heartbeat even at 8.5M D scares me more. The LB’s looked lost in Jax last week. And thats Jax not NE.

  4. He didn’t practice well with the Jaguars nor did he play well in limited preseason action. He couldn’t make the Jags roster as the 7th receiver.

    Rex must see something in him, though.

  5. Its like the guy said. Hes not gonna make us great. But its definitely a good signing. He wont start. People are sleeping on Clyde Gates. I think hes explosive. He could take Hills spot if he keeps dropping the ball. Literally….

  7. Actually in addition to Kerley and Hill, all indications have been speedster Clyde Gates had a good camp and should have a roster spot.

  9. From what I saw of him in live practice:

    Runs very good routes but cant count on him to make routine catches.

  10. I attended most the practices here in Jax. In my opinion he was worse than every other wr though practices accept Price who never practiced due to injury and maybe Clemmons. He struggled to get separation and looked robotic. He could possibly be okay in redzone situations because of his size but not an every down player. Jags are pretty deep at wr though now which is a shocker so they just had no room for him.

  11. If NE had signed him, it would have been a no-loss, brilliant move…

    That’s because NE is a good team with a good record developing other teams’ trash. Not perfect, but a lot better than the Jets– just look at guys like Rob Ninkovich, Mike Vrabel, and Kyle Arrington.

  12. I wish the jaguars luck. But i still can’t believe the league approved those new uniforms. Must be one of Goodells sick inside-jokes. Geaux Saints!

  13. “Am I the only one who thought this wasn’t a bad move..? Mo mass is actually a good receiver who showed it against the jets on Saturday.”
    —————-
    Uh, everyone showed it on Saturday against that “top 5” D.

  14. “He didn’t practice well with the Jaguars nor did he play well in limited preseason action. He couldn’t make the Jags roster as the 7th receiver.

    Rex must see something in him, though.”

    How? Did he watch tape on him since he doesn’t watch the offense?

  15. Hey myditka… you may want to learn a thing or 2 about how the NFL and every other sports team works the GM and player personnel NOT the coach evaluates and signs players

    Jets defense would have been on the field at the same time as the Jags offense. Football works that way. Even in the preseason.
