MoMa hardly a work of art
By AJ Mass
The free agency well appears to have officially dried up, at least in terms of the wide receiver position. How else can you explain the news of Mohamed Massaquoi joining the Jacksonville Jaguars on a two-year deal?
Massaquoi had a few moments where it looked like he might be turning into a reliable threat during his tenure in Cleveland, but always seemed to be hurt - be it a hamstring, a knee, or concussions that impeded his progress. As a result, he only managed 118 catches and seven touchdowns over his four seasons there.
Jacksonville already has Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon as their starting wide receivers and picked up Jordan Shipley to be the "over the middle" guy, so there might not be a lot of playing time in Massaquoi's future if everyone else stays healthy. Still, the fact that the Jaguars are loading up on receivers may be a "tell" as to where they're thinking about going with the No. 1 draft pick.
Geno Smith anyone?
