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.
