Fins giving 'serious consideration' to Moss?

Quickly: name one team who isn't interested in Randy Moss (or at least claiming him). Fine, you got me -- but the Vikings shouldn't count.

The Dolphins sure do, though, and according to Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald, they're giving the possibility of putting in claim for Moss "serious consideration."

Darlington cites a source who says that, as well as the fact that any team would be "foolish" not at least think about it.

The Dolphins traded for Brandon Marshall in the offseason, and they have Davone Bess and Brian Hartline, so they're not exactly desperate for wideout help, but Moss' presence at the very least would turn Marshall into an even bigger monster for Chad Henne targets.

Plus, the combustible combination of Moss and Marshall would be fun to watch from a media perspective. But the bigger problem is that Miami sits at 18th in the waiver order, and would need everyone in front of them to pass on Moss.

That list includes the Seahawks (Mike Williams is their best option, and Pete Carroll likes doing crazy things), the Rams (the Vikings may pay St. Louis to claim him just because anyone who assumes the No. 1 wideout under the arches gets injured), and the Chargers (sure, Norv Turner and Randy Moss don't have a "great history" from Oakland, but Patrick Crayton is their best option until Vincent Jackson returns).

No. the Dolphins don't have a good thing going in the passing game. Chad Henne has no deep threat. Brandon Marshall is a posession receiver. He has good speed and is tall and can leap for passes but, if you have noticed by watching all the Dolphins games, there is a corner and a safety on him on every deep ball. So, by getting Randy Moss, it will negate any double coverage on Marshall. Opposing defenses will have to play a two-deep-safety shell to deal with both, thereby opening up tons of room for a strong-arm quarterback line Henne. Pull the lever Jeff Ireland and grab Moss, even if it's just for this year. Plus, you don't want him t go through waivers and have the Patriots pick him up as an unrestricted free agent for cheap. That would hurt the Dolphins even more.
