Osgood a good 'Jaguar move'
By Paul Kuharsky
The Jaguars have Mike Sims-Walker, still unproven Troy Williamson and a group of inexperienced kids at wide receiver.
So adding Kassim Osgood makes sense to me.
At 6-5, 220, he’s certainly got intriguing size. Maybe, given the chance, he blossoms as a role-playing receiver for Jacksonville.
Even if he doesn’t, the Jaguars have added a supreme special team talent. For San Diego, he’s been a Pro Bowler as the AFC special teams guy in three of the last four years.
The Jaguars already have Montell Owens and William Middleton -- who was the special teamer on my 2009 All AFC-South Team. Those three probably provide the best special teams core of anyone in the division.
Haven’t heard yet about Osgood's contract length or money, but it’s safe to assume we don’t have a bank-breaker here.
This is what I’m coming to call a “Jaguar move” -- inexpensive upside without a ton of risk.
