Found August 19, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
Mohamed Massaquoi was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars today. With that news the entire 2009 second round Browns class consisting of three players is out of the league. Massaquoi might still get picked up, of course, but in his first season outside his rookie deal with the team that drafted him, Massaquoi couldn’t find his way into the mix with a team. Back in April when signing with the Jaguars, MoMass hoped to get a new start. “I guess I just want to rewrite the script,” Massaquoi said. “I want to see where my game can go.” Of course it’s with no glee that we report Massaquoi’s fate. As recently as a year ago, the hopes among Browns fans was that Mohamed Massaquoi could play a healthy season and prove to be the receiver that he always had the potential to be. After recording 17 receptions in nine games, it wasn’t nearly enough for the Browns to bring him back as they went and got Davone Bess during the draft. Massaquoi joins fellow classmates Brian Robiskie and David Veikune as NFL players looking for work. [Related: Ranking the teams in the AFC North: Cleveland Browns Roundtable]
