NFL Rumors: Randy Moss’s Options


In an interview with KFAN Sports Radio, Randy Moss mentioned that he would love the opportunity to return to the New England Patriots.

Moss also mentioned that he could see himself back in Minnesota with the Vikings or possibly with the Cleveland Browns or the Seattle Seahawks.

As far as the Vikings are concerned, there’s no way that Vikings will be willing to bring him back after the disastrous 2010 experiment that cost them a third-round pick. The Cleveland Browns can probably be ruled out after Mike Holmgren said that the Browns are focused on developing young players. Seattle could be an option but there hasn’t been any comments from the team regarding the idea.

Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel writes that the Miami Dolphins are team that may have some interest in Moss because they are in need of a deep threat. I guess that makes sense but they already have Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess so Moss would have to be willing to be more of a role player than a top target in the Dolphins offense.

ESPN’s John Clayton mentioned that the thinks someone will give Moss a one-year deal for around $6-7 million. To be honest, that is crazy idea. When you consider the issues that come with signing a player like Moss on top of the fact that he’ll be 34 next season and has shown some signs of declining in recent years, there’s no way a team tosses that king of money a player that’s considered to be a gamble at best.

Gregg Rosenthal of Pro Football Talk sees Moss getting a one-year deal in the range of $2-3 million which seems more likely than the idea that Clayton suggested.
