    Its a lovely idea in theory but you just know he's just looking for one last payday and won't be the Randy Moss that was one of the best in the league but the Randy Moss that played...badly...for 3 teams in one season.

    I don't see what he possible adds. With his age and being out for a year, I suspect he would be back up material, and the last thing we need is another #3. IMO.

    I do not have a problem bringing him to earn a spot, but my expectations are very low given the above.

    I wouldn't even want to do that. He just seems to have a very divisive personality that is just waiting to make issues in the lockerroom. I would pass on him and look at younger guys who are working to earn a spot.

    Is this guy in need of the money? I get the impression he's in that category where image is everything and, a bit like TO, probably had no problems spending $Xmillion dollars as and when he earned it without saving any for when his playing days were over.

    I don't really understand why he'd even want to come back, he had a good career that ended a bit abruptly.

    That's also my attitude about Moss, who's a very surly dude with a terrible attitude. I saw a game or 2 when he played with the Titans and he was pathetic. The worst kinda combo: a diva who's talent has left him ago.

    Hell, call me crazy but I would take him if he was wanting the vet minimum salary. If it didn't cause cap issues and we still draft/sign another talented WR, what is the downside? Lacks effort? Bench him. Locker room trouble? Trade him for a comp. 7th rd pick (like Derrick Mason's deal).

    The upside? Wants to put a good performance for what would probably be his last year(s). The Texans WR core would be amazing and the O would be ranked top 5.

    I think if he wants the bare minimum $ wise, you without a doubt bring him in for a workout.

    There is a point in time where taking a chance on Randy Moss is a viable option. We are nowhere near that point. Seriously, the Texans have so many better options that the "shot in the dark" that signing Moss would be that this will probably never even be talked about when the Texans brain trust meets. Not unless Moss is picketing outside with a sign or something.

    Too many better options.

    I agree with that to the extent of I wouldn't take Moss if he was our only WR acquisition this offseason. But if we draft/sign a promising WR I think taking Moss wouldn't be so bad. If it all fits in the cap ofcourse.

    If I could get the Minny 1st time/Pats Randy Moss the answer is yes.

    Unfortunately those days are long gone. So no I wouldn't bring him in.

    Cancer? Played in 2 nfc confrence championships and 1 SB. I will take those kinds of cancers on my team.

    Too old. We don't need another Derrick Mason.

    I don't think Moss is in the Mason/Moulds category. We've never heard
    much about him being a lockerroom cancer. When motivated, he gave
    Tom Brady the greatest regular season a quarterback has ever had.

    The Texans are a team on the edge of a Superbowl, and playing next
    to AJ, would make Matt Schaub look pretty good.

    Work him out, bring him in.

    Randy Moss played for a 16-0 team and 15-1 team -- two of the greatest teams in NFL History. And he still didn't win a Super Bowl. How unlucky can a great future Hall of Famer be? Chris Carter has to be patting him on his back as they go ice fishing together. And to answer your question: No, I don't want the Texans to sign him at this point. If he were a few years younger then I would probably say yes.
