Jacksonville Jaguars release Mohamed Massaquoi and Jason Spitz


With many NFL teams making cuts today, the Jacksonville Jaguars released wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and offensive lineman Jason Spitz; this has been reported by John Oehser of Jaguars.com.

This past offseason, Massaquoi signed with the Jaguars after he spent his first four years of his career with the Cleveland Browns. For the Browns, he started 43 games and caught 118 receptions for 1,745 yards and seven touchdowns. Massasquoi’s best season with the Browns was his rookie season in 2009. In that season, he played in all 16 games and started in 11 of them. He caught 34 receptions for 624 yards and three touchdowns.

In terms of Spitz, he has 45 career starts and they were all with the Green Bay Packers. Spitz was drafted in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft by Green Bay. Between 2006-2010, he played in 65 games, that’s not bad for an offensive lineman so he basically averaged 13 games played a season.

Now with the Jaguars, Spitz was a reserve for 10 games in 2011 and then in 2012 missed the entire season with a foot injury. Both players have a good chance of getting picked up by a team but it will be a wait and see approach until more teams cut down their rosters.
