That would not be a bad pick up. Massaquoi can get up field.

Massaquoi was born in Charlotte, North Carolina and played high school football at Independence High School in Charlotte.[1] During his four years there his team did not lose a single game and won four straight state championships. He played with two college football notables, former University of Florida quarterback Chris Leak and former University of North Carolina wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

Second-round pick back in '09 so he's a 4-year vet, but still very young @ 26.
Don't know anything about him, but he sounds interesting ?

More evidence of incompetent, lazy, local football news coverage. It is not as if the Texans tried to smuggle him in and keep it secret. Beat writers simply not even trying to do their job, again.

Who knows how many players the Texans have spoken to and looked at.. we simply don't find out unless a reporter from another NFL city mentions it.

Nothing exciting here. Had his best season as a rookie and has regressed since then. So good that cleveland has been drafting Wr after WR during his time there.

The Texans are going to sign one or more WRs at the vet minimum. That WR is not going to be as good in this offense as Kevin Walter, who signed with the Titans for the vet minimum.

Usain St. Leo Bolt, OJ, CD (pron.: /ˈjuːseɪn/;[8] born 21 August 1986), is a Jamaican sprinter widely regarded as the fastest person ever.[9][10][11] He is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977. Along with his teammates, he also set the world record in the 4×100 metres relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, the first man to win six Olympic gold medals in sprinting, and a five-time World champion. He was the first to achieve a "double double" by winning 100 m and 200 m titles at consecutive Olympics (2008 and 2012),[12] and topped this through the first "double triple" (including 4x100m relays).[13]
His 2009 record breaking margin for 100 m, from 9.69 seconds (his own previous world record) to 9.58, is the highest since the start of fully automatic time measurements.[14]
Height(6 ft 5 in)
Weight(210 lb)

Why not sign this guy up ? @ 6'5"' & 210 lbs he's a pretty dang good target and I bet he'd give the term "seperation" a whole new meaning when running a fly-pattern vs a CB.

We cut Jacoby when we were WR needy...

I'll never understand that take.

We have picked up a bunch of cheap free agents that have come in and played ok to really well....from good and bad teams that deemed them no longer usefull...

If we can sign this guy for really cheap what would it hurt to give him a look?

It has been documented that Jacoby asked for his release

Anyways, I'll still pass....unless he comes in to shag balls

The scary thing for other sprinters has got to be that in the 100 m Bolt didn't even have that great of a start. I remember watching that race and just being amazed at how he got faster and faster until he crossed the line...

It was like he could have kept climbing in speed like a car accelerating...

Massaquoi ran between 4'5-4'6 pre-draft.
3 concussions (that I know off), a knee and a hamstring injury later... Maybe we should avoid him ?!?

So....

You think if JJ Watt asks to be released they'll grant his wish?

No...They'll talk to him and do everything in their power to make baby happy again...


They released him because he wasn't that important to them. It's like a bad employee asking to be fired or a girlfriend you are thinking about leaving anyways wanting to break up...

Or your wife saying you don't have to go to something you didn't want to go to in the first place.

You're not going to fight too hard.


But I say all that to say that the Texans need to throw all the darts at the board that they can and if they get some cheap darts to throw, the better.
