For the gambler in you (offseason edition)

MossBy Josh Katzowitz

Occasionally in the offseason, we’ll take the best -- and most clever -- odds collected by Bovada and give our take. This is important stuff, perhaps the most important post you’ll read on this site. Because if you can’t lose money while watching a game in which you have absolutely no effect, what’s the point of watching sports at all?

Will Randy Moss win NFL comeback player of the year for the 2012 regular season?     

Yes 5/1

The better question is: will Moss be in the position to win the comeback player of the year? As in, will a team actually sign and, then, play him? Didn’t work out so well for Terrell Owens last year, huh?

Who will sign Randy Moss next?

New England Patriots 5/2

Chicago Bears 7/2

Washington Redskins  5/1

San Francisco 49ers 5/1

New York Jets 11/2

St. Louis Rams 7/1

Dallas Cowboys 10/1

Philadelphia Eagles 10/1

I don’t see the Patriots grabbing him again -- after all, they traded him away last year, and they had a good reason for that. I could see the Jets going after him (we were talking about this last May), especially if Plaxico Burress leaves via free agency. But I’d rather take the bet that Moss isn’t playing at all.

Will Albert Haynesworth play Week 1 of the 2012 regular season?  
       
Yes +110

No -150

With all of my heart I want to say no. But I think he showed enough with the Buccaneers -- plus, he was on his best behavior -- that somebody else will give him a chance. I don’t know if he’ll be playing in Week 17. But there’s a strong chance he’ll be there in Week 1.

Randy Moss to the 49es makes no sense at all. By the end of the season Harbaugh would be arrested for putting Randy in a choke hold or assaulting him. The Bay Are Medicinal Marijuana clinics would definitely get a boost though.   Randy is not a good locker room guy so why put him on a team with good chemistry like the 49ers. They definitely need a wide receiver but they should concentrate on Dewayne Bowe or Vincent Jackson. I think Randy will most likely get signed by the Eagles or Jets.

From a business standpoint I think a team like Cleveland or Jacksonville or whoever, should pick up T.O. and Moss together.  They would definitely sell tickets and they just MIGHT be great together for one season.

umm...Crabtree is getting better and is only 24

Moss on the 49er's doesn't mean SB, get real.

The team that makes the most sense is San Francisco.  They got to the the NFC Championship game with no WR's, basically.  Don't blame Alex Smith who's only weapon in the passing game is his TE Davis.  If they signed free agent WR Steve Johnson, and sign Randy Moss for a very modest contract.  San Franciso would win the SB, and I'm a Steeler fan saying that.

Talented head cases....that's all these guys are......along with TO, Plaxico, Tiki.

Haynesworth may indeed get another chance, Plaxico too but the rest of them.....just too much baggage....too much of a history of burning bridges....

I think a big factor with all of these guys is that if they were actually solid citizens, teams player and not prima donnas that they would have teams now....Moss and TO never would have left and Tiki would be hailed as a hero in NY.  Sad. 

maybe they can start an expansion team together.....Rex Ryan would be the perfect coach!  maybe thay could trade for Santinio Holmes and Brandon Jacobs.  What talent!  More impressive yet a combined IQ of 6.
