Ex-Georgia star Mohamed Massaquo signed by Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Follow NFL

Former Georgia receiver Mohamed Massaquo has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Jacksonville.

The 26-year-old Massaquoi spent the last four seasons in Cleveland, catching 118 passes for 1,745 yards and seven touchdowns. He has averaged 14.8 yards a catch in his career.

He had 17 receptions for 254 yards in nine games last season while dealing with hamstring and knee injuries. He also endured multiple concussions during his four years with the Browns.

The Jaguars are looking for depth behind starters Cecil Shorts III and Justin Blackmon. They signed slot receiver Jordan Shipley last month, and also have Mike Brown, Toney Clemons, Jerrell Jackson and Taylor Price on the roster heading into next week’s orientation camp.

LIONS: Signed four-time All-Pro David Akers, one day after Jason Hanson retired.

Akers’ agent, Jerrold Colton, confirmed Friday that he and the Lions agreed to terms. Colton declined to give details when asked if Akers, a 15-year veteran in the league, got a one-year contract.

Hanson hung up his cleats Thursday, ending his 21-year, record-breaking career with the Lions.

San Francisco released Akers a month ago after he slumped during the 2012 season.

RAIDERS: Waived linebacker Rolando McClain on Friday, less than three years after drafting him eighth overall to be the centerpiece of their defense.

McClain was mostly a disappointment in Oakland. He struggled during his first two years and then clashed with coach Dennis Allen and his staff last season.

McClain had his role significantly reduced last season, was suspended for two games for conduct detrimental to the team, and did not play the final five games of the season.

In 41 career games with Oakland, McClain has 6 1/2 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, no fumble recoveries.

McClain still had two years left on the $40 million, five-year rookie contract he signed in 2010. That deal included $23 million in guarantees.

49ERS: Right tackle Anthony Davis signed a five-year contract extension Friday with the 49ers, further solidifying a young offensive line that made major strides last season for Super Bowl runner-up San Francisco.

The deal is worth more than $37 million, with $17 million guaranteed.

The 23-year-old tackle has started 16 games in each of his first three years. He helped the 49ers win consecutive NFC West titles and reach the Super Bowl last season, a 34-31 loss to Baltimore.

OUT OF WORK: Free-agent defensive back Charles Woodson says NFL teams think he’s too old, and that’s why he remains unemployed six weeks after the Green Bay Packers cut him.

“I’m 36, so of course I’m considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger,” Woodson said on NFL Network.

“If you’re an older guy, they kind of push you to the side, and they’ll maybe look at you much later on down the road, when I guess they figure they can get you much cheaper.”

Woodson says his camp has put out word that he’s interested in finding a new team, but so far that interest hasn’t been reciprocated.

“Nothing right now, nothing substantial. I’m just waiting around. We put feelers out, just to see where everybody’s at, but there’s not much right now,” Woodson said.

Woodson’s only free-agent visit since getting released has been with the San Francisco 49ers earlier this offseason, but he left without a contract.
