UPDATED 8:35 p.m. ET: Pro Football Talk has thrown some cold water on the report by the New Orleans TV station, writing that if Randy Moss visited the Saints facility, he did so without the knowledge of his agent, Joel Segal.
Since that's extremely unlikely, I wouldn't bet on Moss, if he plays again, taking his next snap with the Saints.
Randy Moss is known to be interested in returning to play another season with the Patriots. Tom Brady has gone on record as saying he’d welcome Moss back to New England with open arms.
That is unlikely to happen.
But despite his forced retirement -- not to mention Jerry Rice ripping Moss for his work ethic and former Vikings coach Brad Childress describing how Moss metaphorically vomited on Minnesota’s locker room -- it seems that Moss isn’t necessarily done playing pro football yet.
That’s because WWLTV in New Orleans is reporting that Moss has been spotted at the Saints facility and is a player of interest for the club.
Given the fact that Saints receiver Marques Colston will be out the next four weeks while recovering from a broken collarbone, the move seems to make sense. Even if it’s just to see what Moss has left on the practice field.
But remember: Moss destroyed Childress’ reign in Minnesota last year and he was a complete non-factor after going to Tennessee. At this point, other than a bad attitude, Moss simply might not have anything left.
