New York Jets sign wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi


According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport on Twitter, the New York Jets agree’d to terms veteran wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi.

They decided to bring in the veteran due to Santonio Holmes trying to avoid training camp and Braylon Edwards failing to crack the line up. Massaquoi, 26, has spent four disappointing seasons with the Cleveland Browns where he caught 118 passes for 1,745 yards and seven touchdowns in 54 games.

He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars but was released just two days ago. With this signing,, it could possibly mean the end of the line for Braylon Edwards. Not with just the New York Jets, but possibly the National Football League.

Edwards played with the backups during the Jets last pre-season game and hasn’t been seen since. A teammate of Massaquoi’s in Cleveland during the 2009 season, Massaquoi picked up more receptions. Catching 34 passes for 624 yards and three touchdowns compared to Edwards, who brought in 10 receptions for 139 yards and zero touchdowns.

Massaquoi couldn’t beat Jordan Shipley and Mike Brown for a receiving job in Jacksonville, but should have a shot in New York as he should be competing against Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley.
