With a contract for receiver Santonio Holmes done, the Jets are now looking at signing another wide receiver: Randy Moss.
Oh, how I wish Hard Knocks could give us another inside look at the New York Jets this summer.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Jets may not be able to afford Braylon Edwards after signing Holmes, and now Moss is one of the other options the Jets are considering.
Moss would certainly fit with the philosophy of Rex Ryan, who seems just as happy assembling a roster of guys who are characters as guys who have character. Ryan doesn’t shy away from brash veterans with talent, and Moss is that.
The biggest question about Moss is whether he still has the blazing speed that made him such a great threat for much of his career. The 34-year-old Moss didn’t do much while playing for three teams last season.
We’ve been talking about the Jets’ potential interest in Moss for months, and in May Jets owner Woody Johnson said, “There’s no question that Randy Moss has the capability, has the God-given talent to be a superstar.”
If Moss could regain his superstar form in New York, it would be a sight to behold.
