    He should sign a 4 game contract with a team. Then another contract later in the season. Just to get that part over with faster.

    both of those dudes are radioactive to teams at this point. Their production does not vastly outweigh the baggage that they will undoubtedly bring with them.

    It also doesn't help them that this is the best FA class of WR's in a while & also that the draft is deep with WR talent...

    my guess is that both will likely catch on with someone in the middle of the season due to injuries.

    Needs to call Brett for some pointers on how to re-un-re-un-re-tire.

    Free agent Randy Moss was reportedly clocked at 4.39-4.40 in the forty-yard dash during Tuesday's #Saints workout

    It's not surprising and this is precisely why Norg's statement above was funny when i 1st read it....The last guy to make a statement like norg's had this happen to him.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM10IfH8wkQ.

    Moss has never suffered any major injury & never really took any hard hits in his career...he can still ball at a high level in this league. There's always 1 caveat with him though....It's when he wants to.

    If Moss is willing to take a vet minimum deal, I would consider him for the Texans. I think our cap situation will tie our GM's hands, and we will re-sign Myers but won't have money to go after another WR like Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon or Robert Meachem. Moss at least gives us a chance at high potential for low cost, more so than other guys on the market for that cost.

    Hmm, thanks for correcting that. Passed it on. Seemed unlikely, but...

    lots of chatter that he is in great shape. If he runs well someone will give him a contract.

    The OP's question is funny, who will catch on first.

    Two guys who were pretty similar in their character and both had great production at times.

    You've got TO, who seemed to calm down a bit and get on with the job but who's production fell.

    Then you've got Moss, who's production never really fell off the cliff before he let himself go flying off on one again.

    TO's situation looks to me like he's outta cash and desperate for a couple hundred G to put his retirement back on track.

    Randy Moss on the other hand, I believe he could still come in and improve a lot of teams if he wanted to, but it isn't a risk I'd be willing to take with my team.
