Moss could start making visits after Scouting Combine

Receiver Randy Moss reportedly is willing to sign a contract that contains no guaranteed money.  The next step for Moss will be to put his straight cash where his mouth is by showing up at one or more team facilities and proving that he can still run.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that Moss could begin making visits after the Scouting Combine concludes on Tuesday.  Since Moss currently is a free agent, he can sign before the March 13 launch of free agency as to players who finished the 2011 season under contract.

But why would Moss want to sign before knowing more about the composition of the team he’ll be joining?  Free agency and the draft could change circumstances considerably.

Of course, if Moss drags his feet, a team that otherwise would be interested could fill its needs elsewhere.

So Moss has some decisions to make.  The first is whether he’s willing to prove that he can still run the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.  If he isn’t, or if he can’t, the rest of the decisions become moot.

  1. “I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you..”

    Moss, come home to Minnesota. I know there has been drama in the past with you and Childress; but he isn’t here anymore!

    You make the Vikings offense three dimensional EVEN if you quit on the play.

  2. Am I the only one who would think it is cool if Peyton Manning and Randy Moss both signed with the same team? A team with little hope, just trying to sell some tickets…….

    If I was a hometown fan of a struggling team, and they brought them BOTH in, I will try to go to a couple of games…just so I could say I saw two of the best ever (at their position) play together, even though at least one of them will be well past their prime!

  3. If Randy can’t run a 4.3, he’s still relevant. He’s a crafty guy and he knows how to play football. He “gonna play when i wanna play” so if he “wanna play”, let him play.

  4. A rotten person. Remember how he treated the people who cooked meals for the Vikings? And he has no talent and now love of the game anymore. He just misses the money and fame. Hasn’t been a factor in three years.

    That idea was tried by the vikequeefs in the 2010 season. Favre and Moss. Moss exposed himself for the prick he is and Favre… well he just exposed his prick.

  6. Yeah Moss would be a great fit in Minny, cause that worked out so well last time. Its not 1998-2006 anymore people, stop living in the past.

  7. Where did you dream the running thing up? You must’ve been affected by something. No veteran receiver is going to run a 40 for anybody. The last time you do that is at the combine.
    Would be fun to watch Mister Lazy-ass run, though. 5.39 would be closer to reality for his forty.

  8. @gb lol so true well spoken I think moss will make any team better(with the right attitude) if eagles don’t keep d-jack im here with open arms!

  9. Moss will always remain one of my all time favorite WRs to watch. However, I’m not counting on seeing him on an NFL team next season. I think it’s less about whether he still physically has it (he more than likely does)…. but more about how much of a distraction and potential cancer will he be…

    All this “Moss TV” and media attention grabbing stuff is the kind of thing that teams are looking to avoid… yet Moss is putting it on full blast… The irony is kind of tragic… Instead of running to the media with this non-sense…. perhaps consider playing arena like TO is doing…. and walk the talk…. show you can dominate at a lower level and do it without being a cancer… NFL team will notice…. But if Moss is not willing to do that… then this whole thing is an act….

  10. He has already said he doesn’t want to go to Minny.

    Face it, there’s only one team he really wants to play for.

    Montana/Rice……. Fantasy over

  12. I’ve always heard he is a good locker room guy and indeed does help coach up the young recievers. If that really is the case I don’t see why any team with young recievers would not want him.

  13. Free agents should have their own combine, or join in the college one, screw it, its all meaningless anyway.

  14. Just one Question….

    has everyone forgot about R.Wayne !?!?!?!?.. sure Moss is out there.. and ready to play (hasn’t in a full NFL Calendar)… Wayne played last year…. has tread and can still play..

    How about Manning, Wayne and Moss on a team.. now that would be a great Free Agency hookup…

    Never happen tho..
