Could Moss join T.O. in the IFL? (Not likely)

By Ryan Wilson's Will Brinson might be the first person on the planet not associated with the Indoor Football League's website to see the news, but the IFL's Chicago Slaughter announced Wednesday that they have offered Randy Moss a contract.

The headline on is a tad misleading -- "Randy Moss to the IFL" -- but we imagine that's the point.

Moss, who retired following the 2010 season and sat out in 2011, returned to the public eye on Monday when he announced via UStream that he wants to play football.

"Your boy is going to come back here and play some football, so I'm really excited. I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

Moss probably should've started that conversation by specifying "NFL football only."  Whatever, the IFL seized the opportunity and have offered Moss a deal.

“We’ve been looking for another receiver that can separate themselves from the cover guys in this league,” said Chicago Slaughter General Manager and President Jeff Sedivy. “Moss would be a perfect fit.”

Yes he would. But we're guessing that Moss is looking for something north of $225 per game. And unlike Terrell Owens, who is nearly broke and out of NFL opportunities, it's reasonable to think that Moss can still help an offense looking to stretch the field.

In fact, the Baltimore Sun's Mike Preston wrote Wednesday that "Moss is at the point where he wants a ring, and he could be a nice fit in Baltimore for a year, maybe two."

And new Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who coached Moss during his brief stint with the Titans in 2010 said “I thought the world of him over the six or eight weeks that I think we had him … I thought he was a terrific teammate and he did a great job in our locker room.”

Moss likely still faces long NFL odds, but that's more than we can say for T.O., who hasn't generated any interest in over a year.

Oh, and in case you missed the first few showings, MossTV is back: Wednesday night from 9:30-10:00 p.m. ET. How do we know? DaRealOtisMoss said so. You can watch it here.

Moss coming back? I really think he is trying to show T.O. up at this point. He wants to make a statement showing that someone 'wants' him and that he is still worth something. These long shot are pretty close, I don't think a team will want to deal with him at this point in his career.

Tina Turner has not aged well. Is she working out?

The only way that I can see "Moss-Man" in the IFL is if he can get some type of "player/ownership" deal somewhat like what T.O. got......Period!

You honestly think Moss has more to offer to an NFL team than Owens? Really? Terrell Owens was dominant in his last season with the Bengals, Randy Moss was bounced between 3 different teams, none of which he actually made an impact on. Owens is a great all around receiver who can still make big catches even without blazing speed. Moss's game relied on that speed, now that it is gone he cannot find a niche as a receiver. The Titans' receiving corps is terrible, and he could not even make an impact there. I'd take TO in a heartbeat if I was the GM for half the teams in the league, they just don't want to give him a big contract and fear his attitude coming up. I wouldn't touch Moss unless I was with the Rams because I think Lance Alworth could start for them at this point.

I'm a Ravens fan and a (sometimes) Moss fan but not if they are together.
