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.

"Old Randy" - in other words he ran 10 out of the 45 at full speed and jogged through the rest??

No one has ever questioned Moss' physical skills.  I am sure he can still run fast and run effective routes; sadly that has to be followed by.......when he feels like it.
Moss is a detriment because you never who is showing up on game day.  Will it be the game breaking guy who lights up the D for 180 yards and 2 TD's?  Will it be the guy who runs his routes at half speed, doesn't block down field and quits on his team mates before halftime?  No amount of potential upside with him is worth the absolute certainty that he will poison the locker room.

This is the problem with Twitter limiting the length of tweets.  He ran 45 routes and looked like the old Randy.  The rest should read, 'He ran hard on four of them and just went through the motions on the others.'

He also dropped several F-bombs to assembled staff in the locker room and called the post-workout buffet food that he wouldn't feed his dog.

How bad must T.O. be right now, that he can't even grab a single headline in all this?

Moss.. Lit it up.. LOLOLOLOLOLOL.   Thats great. Thats like saying: Sanduski touched all the bases.. or Ike Turner, smacked a single up the middle.  
Gret to hear Moss is interested in playing football again, for 8 minutes,... or until his team is 0-3 to start the season.

What they left out, was that myself, a couple cheerleaders, and a guy in a running boot were covering him.

Old, as in slow? I'll take young Randy over old Randy.

He ran 45 routes, but it never said he caught any passes. Hmm.
