According to NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport, the New York Jets announced Thursday that they have signed WR Mohamed Massaquoi.
Massaquoi signed a 2-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth $4.7 million in the off-season, but the team released him two days ago. The embattled receiver’s best year was his rookie season in 2009; he caught 34 passes for 624 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Massaquoi won’t be a difference maker for the 2013 New York Jets, but his presence signifies that the team clearly isn’t content with their current group of receivers. It may also signal the end for veteran receiver, Braylon Edwards. Edwards wasn’t originally thought to be on the roster bubble, but he has missed four consecutive days of practice and worked extensively with the back-ups, not the starters, during last weekends pre-season game — leading many to believe his day’s as a Jet may be numbered.
