Jaguars Sign WR Mohamed Massaquoi, Usama Young Visits Bengals

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Mohamed Massaquoi's career is officially over. Well, it might as well be, as the fifth-year receiver signed a two-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. The Cleveland Browns didn't appear to show any interest in retaining the former second-round draft pick amidst their regime change.

That's not too bad of a deal for Massaquoi, who will certainly be in the mix for the Jaguars' No. 3 option at receiver, behind starters Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts.

At one point last back in 2011, the Jaguars had signed former Browns second-round pick Brian Robiskie. Robiskie and Massaquoi were both taken in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Massaquoi has shown to be a much better NFL talent than Robiskie and does still possess some nice skills. Unfortunately, something always seems to come up with him, whether that be a decrease in playing time, an injury, or a concussion.

In other former-Browns news, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported that safety Usama Young, who was just released by Cleveland a couple of days ago, paid a visit to the Cincinnati Bengals:

The release of Young indicates that the Browns will either draft a safety in the third round, or target one of the remaining available veteran free agents.
