Report: Randy Moss 'lit it up' at Saints workout

On Monday night, CBSSports.com's Ryan Wilson passed along a report that Randy Moss, currently a free agent, would be working out with the Saints on Tuesday. Some interesting reports have surfaced surrounding Moss since then.

Latest NFL News, Notes

For starters, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Moss has a pair of other tryouts lined up for next week. And more importantly, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that Moss "lit it up" in his workout with the Saints.

"Hearing from multiple sources re Randy Moss workout today he lit it up. Was told he ran about 45 routes and 'looked like the old Randy,'" Glazer tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

If this is accurate, it's fascinating. And not just because no one expected any good news out of New Orleans for a while, hey-o. Moss has already rebounded once in his career from a season where he looked to be finished as an NFL player (in 2006, with the Raiders) to post record numbers the following year (in 2007, with the Patriots).

So it's not unfathomable that he could do the same thing again. Sure, he's several years older and took a year off of football this time. But Moss' game is predicated on speed, and if his speed is back and he's able to torch defensive backs on vertical routes, he's going to draw interest from teams in the NFL.

And even if the reports of Moss performance are being overblown a bit, he should still expect to hear his phone ringing more often in the coming weeks.

If he wasn't good enough to play with Brady and the Pats, and he sits out an entire season, why should any team sign this clown. The potential cost to the franchise outweighs the benefits. End of story. Just sign Colston.

IMO this is the same guy who prevented New England winning another Superbowl with the game on the line by not blocking.  I would steer clear of this guy as well.

Good grief people, wipe the cobwebs from your eyes. We don't need a half hour workout to evaluate Randy Moss. He's not some new prospect that we know nothing about, and must depend on combine skills to evaluate. We have the last three seasons to look at. So what's the point? Didn't we all saw what Randy had the last year he played? Moss didn't "light it up" in New England, Minnesota, or Tennessee. In Nashville he couldn't even beat out Kenny Britt. Playing in the NFL equates to more than the effort to run a single forty, or a few pass routes. If a retired pitcher comes to camp and throws two pitches in the 90's, is he suddenly "back"? This guy is bad karma, a cancer in the locker room, and a pan handler looking for a pay check. He's also looking to leech onto a quality team like a parasite, and get a "gift" Super Bowl ring. Moss isn't even yesterday. More like the day before yesterday.

Randy Moss is the greatest WR of all time. Rice made a career out of being part of a unique system. The 49ers had everything. You say Moss takes plays off, You try running post routes the whole game as a decoy, you get tired.... Rice never had to be triple teamed, and he was slow as all hell.
Moss is the man, He will come back this year and dominate. Watch and See.....

Brees has the eye! He makes an immediate decision with no sense of judgment except that he is OPEN. He spots the open man without a thought to his name or history. I think Randy Moss would be a spectacular success under Drew's unrelenting eye for the open man.
