More smoke on Jets-Randy Moss front

Waaaaaay back in April, our own Mike Freeman reported that the New York Jets were "seriously intrigued" about the possibility of signing Randy Moss.

And while Freeman might still think the move is a bit crazy on the Jets' part, it looks like a Moss signing might still get the old (gang) green light.

Manish Mehta confirmed in today's New York Daily News that Rex Ryan's team is very much interested in Moss, particularly if either Braylon Edwards or Santonio Holmes don't return.

Holmes and Edwards will be unrestricted free agents, barring 2010 rules being in place for the 2011 year. And it probably doesn't make a ton of sense for the Jets to pump heavy, long-term money into the two wide receivers.

Which is where Moss comes in. He said recently that he can still play "at a high level," even if he didn't show that with his performances with the Vikings and Titans in 2010. He might be willing to sign a shorter, incentive-laden contract with a contender like the Jets.

Oh, and hey, Antonio Cromartie is totally cool with it, so there's that.

"I would love to have Randy Moss on Jets," Cromartie tweeted Monday. "Much respect great vertical guy who has a lot left in the tank."

How much "a lot" is remains to be seen, as does Moss' hypothetical fit with the Jets offense, which isn't exactly the 2007 Patriots --regardless of the personnel they might pick up along the way.

If Moss will jump on board for cheap, I actually kind of like the signing, because of the upside he has, his previous career resurrection, and the fact that he'll be motivated to face the Patriots twice a year.

Yet another high profile WR for Sanchez to underthrow and completly not see?  Interesting.  Can't WAIT to see it happen.  If there is a season to see that is.

Jets - First to worst

I'm not really a Jets fan so I actually hope they sign him so they can auger into the astroturf with his effortless diva dancing selfishness the same way Sanchez drills passes into the ground on the short outs. Oh, and can somebody get me the over/under on how long it takes for him to get busted for possession in NYC? I wonder what will happen when he tries to run his car over a NYC beat cop....

The only way for the Jets to sign the "Moss-Man" is if they're unable to sign either Santonio or "B-Easy!" I just can't see Randy playing for the Jets @ a discount.....his ego and pride won't allow it to happen. Rex may also want to obtain Moss in order to prove that he too can also coach him better than "Bill B." did during his time in New EnglandCool.

He may say he can still play at a high level, but there`s a big difference between saying, and actually doing. Last season, he was so happy to get the opportunity to finish his career where it started, and to finally get to have Favre as the QB throwing the ball to him. He failed with that, and that just showed, he has no heart, and with no heart, the most talented athlete will fail.

Bill B. in NE has proven he is the only coach and the Pats are the only team that can handle Moss.  Otherwise he'll play good for the high TV games, and the spotlight, but later in the season when things count if he's not the star then he puts nothing into the game.  Let the Jets sign him, see what super coach can do with him.  His loud mouth of years past should fit right in with the Jets.

@ INtoHI-

When I am at work, I fill the void to make it to the end of the day, this is one way, it takes about ten minutes to look up crap like this and prove moron fan-boys wrong about fairly objective points.

As far as arguing, if you are a Jets fan, lay it on.  It's pretty simple, everything summed up, Sanchez is not a good QB and Ryan is annoying and has not yet fulfilled a prediction, those are my points.
