Agent: Three teams have called about Randy Moss

R. Mosstv

Randy Moss’ decision to return to football has already attracted some attention around the league.

Appearing on PFT Live Tuesday, agent Joel Segal said that three teams called him with interest regarding Moss in the last day. He expects to hear from more teams around the Combine next week.

Segal wouldn’t give away what teams have called. He expected some teams to show serious interest, while others were just curious. Segal isn’t sure if Moss will work out for teams because he hasn’t talked about it at length with Moss.

In fact, Segal said he learned about Moss’ decision to unretire by reading PFT.

We’ll have more from Segal’s conversation later in the day on the site.

    One of the teams was TO’s arena team

  2. ebeg420 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:47 PM

    Hmmm…..3 mystery teams eh?

    Suuure, MIN, OAK and TEN?

  3. cakemixa says: Feb 14, 2012 12:48 PM

    Phantom calls.

  4. tallguyme says: Feb 14, 2012 12:48 PM

    the three teams were:

    1. Team America World Police
    2. The A-Team
    and
    3. Team Edward

  5. mrplow3 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:48 PM

    Gotta love PFT.

    First, took the place of an agent for Daunte Culpepper while he was foolish enough to represent himself, NOW the go between for players to announce career moves to their actual agents.

    Makes us readers feel special, keep it up!

  6. hardoguy says: Feb 14, 2012 12:49 PM

    If I was an agent I’d never come out and say I learned news regarding my client from a website.

  7. thatobnoxiousguy says: Feb 14, 2012 12:50 PM

    Does anyone really believe that Randy Moss is going to be on a NFL team this season?

    Seriously?

    Look, the guy didn’t “retire”, he didn’t play cause nobody wanted him.
    He found out teams weren’t interested in paying him what he wanted.
    He found out that his act has finally worn out.
    He found out teams aren’t going to put up with his attitude and taking plays off.

    T.O. is learning the same thing……teams are sick of the attitude.
    T.O. will never be in the league again.
    Moss will never be in the league again.

    And they have only themselves to blame..

    But Randy can call it a “retirement” if it makes him feel better.

  8. 3octaveFart says: Feb 14, 2012 12:50 PM

    Just another agent doing his job, by trying to drum up artificial interest where none may actually exist.

    Just like Rosenhaus, when he claimed “many” teams were interested in T.O., right before he took a crappy one-year deal with Buffalo…

  9. rr2000k says: Feb 14, 2012 12:51 PM

    Segal wouldn’t give away what teams have called…translation=none

  10. 4512dawg4512 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:52 PM

    Three teams looking for a quitter? I dont believe it

  11. davikes says: Feb 14, 2012 12:52 PM

    Is Segal sure he’s still Moss’ agent? Sounds like he better tune in to MossTV to find out.

  12. eyeh8goodell says: Feb 14, 2012 12:53 PM

    Oh yeah? Teams from what league?

  13. gameproper says: Feb 14, 2012 12:55 PM

    ATTENTION RANDY MOSS DID NOT “BLOW” HIS MONEY!!!. every one here seems to think he pulled a T.O….but that completely not true. Its speculation from people assuming that Moss is another black athlete who blew his money. In case you dont know, Moss is not flashy at ALL. He has a nice house, supports his 1 family (4 kids with the SAME woman) and all he does is fish. The guy is simple. He’s a country boy who likes to fish and keep it mellow. People call him a menace because he didnt try in certain games but he’s never been an off the field trouble makewer either. Just tired of people ASSuming hes another one who blew his money.

  14. jeff061 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:56 PM

    Yeah…..>Right.

    Nice try trying to create a market for an aging receiver with sever baggage, a history of disrespecting team and vendor staff, has a history of giving up…and has been a no-show on the field for 2 years!

    I’m sure its really heating up for Randy Moss!

  15. lunarpie says: Feb 14, 2012 12:56 PM

    The Eagles should pick up Randy Moss and let go of DeSean Jackson.

  16. 808raiderinparadise says: Feb 14, 2012 12:57 PM

    Seemingly Randy had been on the sauce and made a crucial mistake of tweeting and producing streaming video clips for his fans that he is ready to come back while intoxicated.

    If your agent finds out from PFT that your making a comeback before you hear from your client, thats a red flag.

    Randy has been a pure talent but the last year he was a quitter.

    3 teams in 2010.

    Nuff said.

    35 year old deep threat? hmmmm no thanks.

  17. vaphinfan says: Feb 14, 2012 12:57 PM

    Didn’t TO’s agent say the same thing last year?

  18. kingviking414 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:58 PM

    Don’t tell me..let me guess…
    one of them is the Vikings right? :( :( :(

  19. tsimpson50 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:58 PM

    Yup… the Allen Wranglers, Bloomington Edge, and Chicago Slaughter…. Stick a fork in him.. he’s done!

  20. dukemarc says: Feb 14, 2012 12:58 PM

    It’s the Vikings, Titans and Raiders looking for the money Randy stole from them.

  21. kingjoe1 says: Feb 14, 2012 12:59 PM

    Their question: Is he serious? Why would any team want someone who quit on the 3 teams he played for?

  22. jkearse2005 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:00 PM

    Genius, Segal didn’t indicate they were NFL teams or not…

  23. bbrophy1 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:01 PM

    3 seems to be the standard answer to try to gain actual interest in your client

  24. nowillrepeat says: Feb 14, 2012 1:01 PM

    After hearing those 3 teams were Cleveland, KC, and Jax, Moss decided to retire again

  25. xsorethumbx says: Feb 14, 2012 1:01 PM

    cant wait for the news of Daunte Culpepper getting ready for his comeback too! make it happen

  26. pudgalvin says: Feb 14, 2012 1:02 PM

    Anyone wonder if a certain meathead coach that was just given the keys to an offense would have some interest? Not really the Bears style, but it does make some sense that they’d kick the tires.

  27. benh999 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:04 PM

    The Blue Bombers, Stampede, and Alouettes?

  28. vtopa says: Feb 14, 2012 1:05 PM

    Moss to the Saints. Wow.

  29. slew55 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:05 PM

    Maybe Segal will learn of Moss’ intentions of working out for teams by reading PFT.

  30. horatio69 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:07 PM

    Dan Snyder would gladly overpay Moss to wear the burgundy and gold. Gotta make a big splash in Free Agent Feeding Frenzy so he can justify those $9 cups of stale beer!

  31. lolb23 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:07 PM

    Eagles, Cowboys, Patriots

  32. vikesorgtfo says: Feb 14, 2012 1:08 PM

    Randy Moss is an odd guy, but no one doubts he can play when he is motivated to play. After taking a year off, I genuinely believe he WANTS to put in 100% and play. If one of the 10 best teams in the NFL want him, I think they’ll get a great Randy Moss.

  33. jimboonie says: Feb 14, 2012 1:08 PM

    This is gonna be the most overrated/over hyped story of the off season.

  34. bigperm33 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:10 PM

    an agent said it? it must be true.

  35. uvmcatamounts says: Feb 14, 2012 1:11 PM

    I hope he comes to Baltimore. With Peyton as well. Hey, a guy can dream.

  36. bigtganks says: Feb 14, 2012 1:11 PM

    I was thinking… which teams, which teams… oh wait. His agent said that. That means no one has called. Simple ploy to create demand.

    That said, it doesn’t mean NFL teams.
    My guess is it’s:
    The Allouettes
    BC Lions
    Allen Wranglers (or whatever they’re called)

  37. httr21hightilidie says: Feb 14, 2012 1:12 PM

    redskins please sign him!!! i can hear it now….

    “grossman going deep for moss aaaaaaaaand intercepted! how does grossman miss randy moss?!”

  38. rebel21das says: Feb 14, 2012 1:12 PM

    I’d like to see the Pats give him a shot.

  42. descendency says: Feb 14, 2012 1:22 PM

    The Patriots are surely one of them. They will kick the tires on anyone who knows the system.

  43. originalsteelcurtain says: Feb 14, 2012 1:24 PM

    3 calls?

    Turns out one of the calls was from Stonio Holmes, looking to score some ganga.

  44. rastaraider says: Feb 14, 2012 1:28 PM

    If he chooses the patriots he will be the same randy

  45. sdffa11 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:31 PM

    screw desean jackson. the eagles better get in on the moss bidding.

    if we’re going to have 1 vertical threat at WR who won’t go across the middle, id rather the team not spend $10mil on that player.

  46. nwhmpshr says: Feb 14, 2012 1:33 PM

    Come back to the Pats Randy. All is forgiven. Don’t listen to the haters. We need a deep threat since you left. Ocho either couldn’t do it or they wouldn’t let him play a full game to prove himself. Just understand you can’t expect the ball every play. Just once or twice a game. Our main guys are the tight ends and Welker.

  47. pone27 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:34 PM

    Some of you guys who post are funny.

    Moss retired because he was asking for too much money at his age, not bc he cant play football anymore. Moss was ticked that NE cut him. I am pretty sure if Moss would have taken the same deal that Ochocinco received, the Pats would have Moss instead.

    With that being said, as a Pats fan, I dont want Moss back. This team needs to stay young, especially with TB getting older.

  48. 49erstim says: Feb 14, 2012 1:35 PM

    Why is it always 3 teams? Sounds like “the rule of 3″ to me. Meaning that maybe 1, but most likely 0, teams are interested. I mean Come the freak on now, his agent didnt know he was “unretiring” but 3 teams called….. These agents think we’re all stupid. He retired because there was NO interest in his lollygagging hyjinx.

  49. sj39 says: Feb 14, 2012 1:40 PM

    He would be great at streaching the field and drawing double coverage as a decoy. Problem is if he knows he is not getting the ball on a play his body language is a dead give away at the line and every team knows it. That part of his game alone will keep him out of the HOF.

  50. tommyribs says: Feb 14, 2012 1:47 PM

    Three teams called. Maybe they did, but what did they call to say? I think they called to say we are NOT interested.

    Moss’s talents are diminished to the point by anything that he could bring to the table is probably viewed as detrimental.

    He is an interesting guy, but if I were an exec I would not be interested in him at all after how I heard he treated people bringing in meals to the Vikings. Even Favre had to chime in and tell him to knock it off.

    He is not worth the trouble.

    —————————————-

    Hey I live in Bloomington – would love to see him play for the Edge!

  52. hineswardcriesafterfumbling says: Feb 14, 2012 1:47 PM

    Kind of surprised at all the Moss hate. It may be a wildly unpopular move, and the critics may say it’s a typical move, but I would love to see Moss as a Bengal. Dalton may not have the rocket arm to hit Moss in stride, but Randy Moss was and probably still is a physical specimen.

    Moss can “take the ball deep; take the top off the defense” and allow Green, Shipley, and Gresham to get open underneath, and open up the running game for R.B. Tobenamedlater.

  53. purpwalk says: Feb 14, 2012 1:50 PM

    were any of these teams in the USA, and do they play football?

    agents are scum

  54. ampats says: Feb 14, 2012 1:55 PM

    pone27,

    the Pats did not cut Moss. They traded/rented him to Minnesota for a third round draft choice which turned out to be Ryan Mallett.

  55. ctattles says: Feb 14, 2012 1:55 PM

    If Rob Gronkowski can score 17 TDs then Moss can easily get 25. Faster, better hands, more swag. dude can still play and i guarantee he has a monster year.

    Thumbs down if you support Sandusky.

  56. geniusesq says: Feb 14, 2012 1:57 PM

    Yeah, The

    Calgary Stampeders
    Saskatchewan Roughriders &
    Winnipeg Blue Bombers

  57. getadealdonealready says: Feb 14, 2012 1:58 PM

    Stampeders, Roughriders, and Argonauts?

  58. dexterismyhero says: Feb 14, 2012 2:01 PM

    Is he going back to Marshall?

    The “U” would probably take him….Maybe Bama..

  59. bigfranky75 says: Feb 14, 2012 2:06 PM

    hmmmmmm….. isn’t that what Terrell Owens’ agent said too? Just Sayin….

  60. staff2cj4td says: Feb 14, 2012 2:07 PM

    look, I’m not doubting his talent or speed, everyone wrote him off when he was in Oakland and said he was done, then he went to New England and everyone was all over how great he was! he has always taken care of his body and worked out, he’s always an in shape guy, even when not playing football. and when people wanna doubt that at 35 he can run a 4.3, think about Darrell Green for a minute, he ran a 4.5 40 yard dash on his 50th birthday!!! that’s insane!! some people are naturally speed demons!!! I played high school football in the same city as Michael Bennett who went to the Badgers and was drafted in the 1st rd by the Vikings, he never weight lifted in high school, he just did his track workout, and he was the fastest prep in the country and barely missed breaking Hershal Walker’s prep track record for the 40 yard dash!

    all I’m saying is wait til you see him before you write him off, or you’ll end up eating crow like when he went to new England from Oakland.

    IMAGINE HIM OPPOSITE CALVIN JOHNSON, ANDRE JOHNSON OR LARRY FITZGERALD!!

  61. thom4msu says: Feb 14, 2012 2:08 PM

  68. pone27 says: Feb 14, 2012 2:21 PM

    Ampats,

    You are correct. Sorry, typing at work, the mind traveled.

  69. lilevil74 says: Feb 14, 2012 2:27 PM

    If Moss is willing to sign a contract that includes character clauses, I wouldn’t count out Scott Pioli. Bowe (if re-signed), Moss, Baldwin and Breaston could be just enough to lure Manning to KC. Even without Manning, Cassell last played football when he could just lob it up to Moss. Now this is a big if but if Jamal Charles can return to elite status, they could have a shot. That defense proved to be stellar at times even without Eric Berry. Remember, Pioli backed off his stance on bringing in guys with character flaws (Baldwin and Houston). I’m just saying

  70. trubroncfan07 says: Feb 14, 2012 2:34 PM

    I would take him in Denver, he did a great job catching a lot of non catch-able balls from Culpepper earlier in his career. Maybe he can do the same thing with Tebow.

  71. vincentbojackson says: Feb 14, 2012 2:46 PM

    Any NFL teams call?

  72. td40 says: Feb 14, 2012 2:52 PM

    My Browns desperately need WR help- perhaps more than any other team in the NFL.

    The last time the Browns signed a FA WR in his mid 30s was Joe Jurevicius (not counting Bobby Engram, who caught a couple passes in the preseason and was cut)- and Joe became the best, and certainly most reliable, receiver on the team. My bet is Moss is faster and more capable now than Jurevicius was then. So we could really use Moss, big time.

    Ah, but they’re the Browns, and they seem to be allergic to the idea of signing FAs that can actually HELP our team. Instead, we love to go out and get over the hill guys like David Bowens and never-was guys like Oneil Cousins.

    Bummer.

    trubroncfan07 : “I would take him in Denver, he did a great job catching a lot of non catch-able balls from Culpepper earlier in his career. Maybe he can do the same thing with Tebow.”

    Yeah, I got a feeling that Moss & Tebow would get along FANTASTICALLY on a personal level. So much in common!

    Tice might be interested, but would Lovie let him pull the trigger?

  76. bensstinkyfingers says: Feb 14, 2012 3:14 PM

    It was reported he has narrowed it down to 7 possible suitors.
    Chicago Bliss,
    Green Bay Chill
    Las Vegas Sin
    Minnesota Valkyrie
    Orlando Fantasy
    Philadelphia Passion
    Seattle Mist
    He will bring some much needed talent to the Lingerie Football League. They may move him to Tight End apparently.

  77. gmen1987 says: Feb 14, 2012 3:21 PM

    Oh yeah he is that guy that is always hurt that on the only team in the NFC East with out a Super Bowl Win
    Now I know I will hear that Super Bowls do not matter but ask the fans of the rest of the teams and ask every owner and coach in the NFL they are all that matters.

  79. realitypolice says: Feb 14, 2012 3:25 PM

    Well, if his agent said it, it must be true.

  80. realitypolice says: Feb 14, 2012 3:27 PM

    Three teams called, but two of them were returning calls from the agent and telling him they weren’t interested.

  81. ppc50 says: Feb 14, 2012 3:51 PM

    There are teams, that if he really showed up, would definitely benefit: 49ers, the Chicago (CareBears), Jaguars, (Lambs) St. Louis, (Seagulls) Seattle, (My Little Ponies) Denver, Chiefs, Redskins, (Kittens) Detroit, Eaglets (if Jackson leaves), and the Skid Marks = Browns.

  82. granadafan says: Feb 14, 2012 4:04 PM

    Ya gotta love agents whose job it is to spin and lie. The three teams called to tell the Segal to NOT “leak” their names to the media.

  83. kosarsmyidol says: Feb 14, 2012 4:11 PM

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the Browns give him a shot by signing him to an incentive-based contract. Moss half-@ssing it would be preferable to most of what the Browns have at the position.

  84. bigzant82 says: Feb 14, 2012 4:11 PM

    PLEASE LET IT BE CLEVELAND HOLMGREN CALL MR. STR8 CASH HOMEY!!!!

  85. pappert says: Feb 14, 2012 4:57 PM

    Obviously not the Pats or he wouldve signed.
    Probably the Eagles ,Redskins and Some Random Afc Team

  86. joey15215 says: Feb 14, 2012 5:33 PM

    I would think that the teams are possibly the Patriots and/or 2-3 warm weather teams. Being 35 and out of the game for one season, warm weather teams would be the best to adjust to. Not to mention Moss hasn’t truly been under the new rules, which actually aid older players to play longer.

    Moss makes sense for many teams. I don’t think that people realize that Moss went to a Viking team where then HC Childress couldn’t stand him and then to a Titan team where then HC Fischer was on his last chance.

    And to all known accounts, Moss is far from broke and has investments in I believe West Virginia. Likely also Minnesota and possibly LA. He doesn’t spend lavishly and focuses on his family is pretty much what those of us from the East Coast hear about him.

    Imagine randy moss playing for my Buffalo Bills lining up opposite stevie johnson, or moss playing for my hometown Chicago Bears.

  90. grimmlock42 says: Feb 21, 2012 1:06 AM

    A motivated Randy Moss is a dangerous Randy Moss. I feel bad that we didn’t have a quarterback to get him the ball when he was in Oakland. I would love to see him comeback one more time and help the young WR’s the raiders have and make them better. Moss has a gift that Cris Carter passed to him that he has not yet passed on to the next guy and that’s knowledge. I hope he comes back to fix the last chapter of his career on a positive note.
