49ers released WR Kassim Osgood.

The move clears a spot for Alex Boone on the active roster. Osgood could be re-signed after Week 1, when veteran salaries aren't guaranteed.

49ers re-signed WR Kassim Osgood.

Osgood was released at final cuts. A core special teamer, Osgood is back after the 49ers freed up a roster spot by placing NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) on injured reserve/designated to return.

49ers released WR Kassim Osgood and S C.J. Spillman.

Even though Osgood is 34, it'll be a blow to the 49ers' special teams. Spillman looks like a salary dump as the move saves $1.225 million against the cap. Perhaps the 49ers will bring back Osgood after Week 1, so they don't have to guarantee his salary. They did that last year.

49ers re-signed WR Kassim Osgood to a one-year contract.

One of the league's better special teamers, Osgood appeared in 14 games last season. A receiver by trade, Osgood has only six total catches over the past three years. He turns 34 in May.

49ers re-signed WR Kassim Osgood.

Osgood was released at final cuts by the Niners. He's one of the league's premier special teamers.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 09:52:00 AM

49ers released WR Kassim Osgood.

Osgood is one of the most respected special teamers in the league, but couldn't crack a loaded 49ers roster. He was never a legitimate candidate for the receiver corps. Osgood should latch on elsewhere.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 01:17:00 PM

49ers signed WR Kassim Osgood, formerly of the Lions.

There were reports earlier in free agency that Osgood had re-signed with the Lions, but they proved to be erroneous. A linchpin special teamer, Osgood has appeared in at least 12 games every year since 2003.
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 02:49:00 PM

Lions re-signed WR Kassim Osgood to a one-year contract.

Osgood's value is on special teams. He doesn't play offense at all, and couldn't even get on the field last year as the Lions went through a bevy of receivers.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 04:32:00 PM

Lions signed WR Kassim Osgood, formerly of the Jaguars.

The 32-year-old Osgood is a coverage teams specialist, running down kickoffs and punts. His addition could be a bad sign for fifth receiver Maurice Stovall.
Wed, Aug 22, 2012 10:28:00 PM

Jaguars released WR Kassim Osgood.

Osgood was due in excess of $2 million, which the Jags deemed too expensive for a one-trick pony special teamer who turns 32 in May. Osgood can still run down kickoffs and punts, but he couldn't even beat out Chastin West for playing time at receiver last season. Osgood may resurface for the NFL minimum.
Tue, Mar 13, 2012 02:41:00 PM

Jaguars special teamer Kassim Osgood said he wants more action at wide receiver.

Osgood has no catches on the season even though the Jaguars field one of the league's worst receiver corps. "I feel like they put the baby in a corner. Now I know what they think of me," Osgood said on Twitter. The career special teamer has an inflated perception of his skills as a pass-catcher.

Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood strained his hamstring in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Despite the absence of Jason Hill, Osgood was targeted once on Sunday. A career special teamer, Osgood's use on offense will be extremely limited this year.
Mon, Sep 19, 2011 02:04:00 PM

Kassim Osgood finished without a catch on one target in Week 13.

Osgood started in place of Mike Sims-Walker and was overthrown on his only look. He should be kept far away from your fantasy team.
Sun, Dec 5, 2010 05:15:00 PM

Kassim Osgood will start in place of Mike Sims-Walker (ankle) in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Osgood is a physical presence known more for his special teams work than his skills as a receiver. He'll struggle to get open or make plays after the catch. Expect David Garrard to target Mike Thomas and Marcedes Lewis heavily.
