There was and is no Moss offer from Eagles

Jaguars Patriots Football AP

We were intrigued by the report from the Boston Herald that the Eagles had made a post-retirement offer to receiver Randy Moss.  And while we hate to let the facts get in the way of an intriguing story, we’re compelled to report, based on a source with knowledge of the situation, that the Eagles did not and have not made an offer to Randy Moss.

The source was adamant, for what it’s worth.

We’re compelled to point this out because we’ve received multiple e-mails tonight regarding a Randy Moss sighting at the Capital Grille in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  If it’s Moss, it doesn’t mean he’s joining the Eagles.

Then there’s the chance it was just a guy in one of those Moss masks.

    There was and is an offer for Jackson though? That’s who they need to pay.

    good

    If that “source” was Howard Eskin, expect the Moss signing to go down by 2 PM EST tomorrow.

    After seeing this picture of Randy, I’m not sure I’d want him. Man…that’s hideous.

    The Eagles should make him an offer…….The Eagles are stacked…..but, what will be their downfall is Vick…..he will choke in the playoffs as usual……he needs all the help he can get.

  9. captainwisdom8888 says: Aug 4, 2011 10:42 PM

    Moss isn’t done yet.

  10. phillyrick22 says: Aug 4, 2011 10:42 PM

    is this profootballtalk or is it eaglesfootballtalk??? Ive have never seen this many eagles articles. You should keep a count of how many eagles’ articles you’ve uploaded to the site in the past week/month, it might be a record…

  11. dieharddolfan6493 says: Aug 4, 2011 10:43 PM

    UPDATE:The eagles traded for Andre Johnson and a 2nd round pick in return the Texans recieved Mike Kafka. Also Jerry Rice and LT returned from retirement and plan to sign with the Eagles. The Eagles now confirm they show interest in Jarod Allen, Darrelle Revis, Troy Polamalu, Adrienne Peterson, Patrick Willis, and Antonio Gates.

    The Boston Herlad print something that wasn’t TRUE??????

    Heavens to Mergatroid, I can’t believe that!!!!

    Yes, he was there. And dont be surprised if your “source” close to the FO has no knowledge of an offer. The Eagles signed a certain cornerback and nobody seen it coming. He’ll be an Eagle by next week and all of the sudden “dreams” are becoming a reality. I feel sorry for the NFC.

  14. skinsrollyou says: Aug 4, 2011 10:47 PM

    Shocker. The Philadelphia media is as stupid as Philadelphia fans. I wonder if they are as violent, offensive and miserable as Philly fans too.

  15. dgreenfi says: Aug 4, 2011 10:48 PM

    If I retired with as much money as Randy Moss, you better believe I will be having me some steak too.

  16. realitypolice says: Aug 4, 2011 10:50 PM

    So since your go to source for unreliable Eagle news, Howard Eskin, has fed you so much nonsense this off season, he has now become an unnamed “source with knowledge of the situation”?

  17. rayjayjohnsonjr says: Aug 4, 2011 10:55 PM

    And in a related note, the Eagles have not made me an offer either. So much for non news.

    The creepiest thing about this post is the photo, which is of Brett Favre’s daughter, Brittany, wearing a Randy Moss mask at a Patriots-Vikings game.

  19. melonnhead says: Aug 4, 2011 11:00 PM

    Wouldn’t want to give the impression that somebody wouldn’t want to play for the Eagles, would we?

  20. justanotherdummy says: Aug 4, 2011 11:05 PM

    Capital Grille is awesome.

  21. wigwam101 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:13 PM

    jroman11–
    That photo is not of Moss; it’s of Brittany Favre in a Randy Moss mask.

  22. richm2256 says: Aug 4, 2011 11:17 PM

    There’s only one problem with the alleged Eagle’s interest in Moss …….. he’s a DEEP threat; he needs someone who can throw ……. DEEP.

    Wake me up when the Iggles sign THAT guy.

  23. depotnator says: Aug 4, 2011 11:17 PM

    “The source was adamant, for what it’s worth.”

    What’s the big deal on keeping the source confidential on such a trivial issue? Why wouldn’t Andy Reid, Banner, or any other representative of the Eagles come right out and say so? Keeping the source secret suggests that there is truth to the original story that the Eagles expressed an interest in Moss.

  24. rexryansdirtysock says: Aug 4, 2011 11:18 PM

    Time to convince my nephew to get one of those masks for Halloween, walk up to his neighbors houses, and instead of asking for candy, just say “Straight cash homie.”

    Really!? You call philly violent!? Last time I checked, our fans never beat an opposing teams fan into a coma in a parking lot, have had gang wars erupt in the stands, or had fans rush the field and beat a first base coach senseless!
    I’m sure your rebutle to this will be “well you did throw snowballs at Santa” which is completely over stated. We are passionate, loyal fans. Sure we will harass opposing fans in our house, but find me a city in america that this doesn’t happen.
    So please, before you go spilling venom due to nothing but pure jealousy based on the fact that your team has been irrelevant for more than a decade, check your facts! You will see that while, yes, we are obnoxious, it stems from passion and love for our teams, that we will only accept the best. Unlike your own slum of a city that is more than willing to accept mediocraty with a smile.

    Moss was spotted tonight in Philly at Capitol Grille, reported by 97.5, just an FYI

  27. rethinklogic says: Aug 4, 2011 11:33 PM

    There is a “hideous man with an afro mask sighting” on the profootballtalk web site

  28. bl33dzphillygr33n says: Aug 4, 2011 11:44 PM

    I would receive randy with open arms he’s just being misjudged bc of a season where he was on a garbage minnesota team and an even more garbage titan team. get d jack a new contract first and foremost tho.

  29. bleedgreen says: Aug 5, 2011 12:02 AM

    Maybe the guy they saw in NJ was Woody. Was he bashing Jeff Fischer?

    Extend Vick and Desean and sign Moss! Go Birds! How bout those Phils!?!!

    How quickly Desean is forgotten…

    Misjudged …… because he talked his way out of the perefect place for him …. AGAIN.

    Whose fault was it that he was on a “garbage minnesota team” and an “even more garbage titan team” ………

    Oh, that’s right, it was Randy Moss’s fault. He talked his way out of New England, then talked his way out of Minnesota.

    Poor “misjudged” Randy Moss.

  35. ravensfan4life52 says: Aug 5, 2011 12:48 AM

    not surprised. if they’re trying to buy a super bowl they can afford better than Moss.

  36. andyreidisfat says: Aug 5, 2011 12:52 AM

    Yeah as i said i am not a big fan of signing Moss. I think Moss can still play no doubt and i think last season was because the guy was still upset about leaving NE.

    I think for one year Moss could even be a good pick up for the Eagles. But if they are going to spend money on something i would rather it be DeSEan and a DT now that it seems all our starters at DT are hurt.

    That being said if they are going to trade Samuel for a top DT (Ngata for Samuel and 3rd, *wishing*) then i think they might just be better off signing a back up DT and D jax. Though i also believe they should stick to their guns and NOT sign Jackson until he reports. Never negotiate with a player who puts you over a barrel. At the same time always pay players who deserve more.

    Awesome answer.

  38. truecowboyfan says: Aug 5, 2011 1:16 AM

    That picture above looks like Michael Jackson in “The Wiz”!!

  39. dontouchmyjunk says: Aug 5, 2011 1:44 AM

    Did anyone bother to ask if Moss was at NFL Films in Mount Laurel, NJ? It’s right next to Cherry Hill. Literally.

  40. theripster30 says: Aug 5, 2011 2:17 AM

    Report: There was no offer for chad lewis or freddie mitchell

    The funny thing? You think your post is really clever, but your false bravado just comes off as desperate and terrified.

    I get it, though. Unlike Cowboys and Giants fans, you don’t even have the ghost of a chance at a winning season, so you have to attack the fans.

    That’s okay, we will still let you watch the Eagles in the playoffs this year. You are welcome to watch the Redskins win a playoff game, but to do that I guess you’ll have to dust off that VHS tape from the ’90s.

    Well said, bruh!
    We need to realize, the ‘skins draw their fans from a fanbase so stupid that they re-elect convicted crackheads to be Mayor, just because “he’s just like us!”

    Cerrato was actually smarter than the average ‘skins fan. :mrgreen:

  43. MichaelEdits says: Aug 5, 2011 6:30 AM

    I want that mask

  44. skinsrollyou says: Aug 5, 2011 6:49 AM

    Hey bleedeaglegreen…. Well thought out statement, except you are wrong. I don’t know of any team in america that finds it necessary to have a jail and magistrate in the basement of it’s stadium. Bunch of savages you all are.

    Really??? Did you not see the redskins highlights last year? Aside from run the only thing Vick can do well is throw deep ball.

    I also don’t know one other city that, as a poster said earlier, elected a crackhead for a mayor because he was “just like us.”

    Your city is a cesspool, and unless you’re a congressman or a lobbyist, you’re part of the scum at the bottom.
