Saints to work out Randy Moss on Tuesday

AP

Mike Florio reported last Friday that the Randy Moss tour would begin this week. FOX 8 New Orleans is now reporting that the Saints will work out Moss “very soon.”

According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the workout will take place on Tuesday. Former Packers quarterback Brian Brohm will reportedly throw Moss passes during the workout.

It was reported last September that the Saints hosted Moss for a team facility visit just after the club’s season-opening loss to Green Bay. While the Saints disputed the story and denied interest at the time, the writing on the wall suggests their affinity for Moss is not new.

The Saints are now in danger of losing Colston and Robert Meachem in free agency. The fact that New Orleans is giving Moss a “workout” as opposed to a routine free agent visit indicates they’ll ask him to prove his alleged 4.3 speed.

  1. They won’t be the only ones who offer Moss. He’ll be cheap and pairing him with Brees is a solid match. Solid #3 receiver and probably at least as effective as Manningham (in the short term only, clearly) who will command a lot more money.

  2. If he would stop lolly gaggin’ and go up for the ball like he can, he would put philly so over the top… Randy, Djax, Maclin, Mccoy, Vick launching it all over the place… would be fun to watch.

  3. It’s also a good opportunity for the bounty hunters to get some practice in as well.

    It’s worth the extra money as it’s sure to give the team a better idea of what Moss can do if he comes up against a DB with an incentive to rip his head off.

  4. he gave up on favre vs pats & pack

    he quit on favre

    and favre was having $$$ on his head ,

    ha

  5. And all the vikequeef stool samples that criticized the Pack fans for hating on Favre when he orchestrated his trade to MN will be the same hypocrites hating on Moss if he signs with NO. It’s to bad they don’t play each other this coming season.

  6. Sean Payton asks, “Randy, how would you like to be paid if you can successfully chop block and end a defensive back’s career?”

    “Straight cash, homey”.

    “Great. Welcome to the Saints.”

  7. He can still run. Image means more to Moss than money. He’d rather give back all his straight cash than run a 5.0 and have everybody know…

  8. I hope they tell us what he runs. Oddly I am actually interested in his condition, and Moss himself, for once.

  9. You better have a great buffet or he will go off on the wait staff….

    Just what the Saints need through all this turmoil is Randy Moss. Good Luck.

    Also If you do sign him do not let him drive he hits Cops:) It’s true:)lol. Get him a horse or something.

  10. If Randy Moss plays for the Saints next year it’s pretty obvious who will be the recipient of the karma that’s coming to the ‘Big Easy’. Sweet Justice….

  11. I think this news and this tryout at this time is more about trying to change the subject than any real serious interest in Moss. After all, shouldn’t they be auditioning defensive players since they are going to be losing some for a few games at least?

  12. Why wouldn’t the Saints want to add a Team-first guy like Randy?

    (for your Pittsburgh fans, that was sarcasm).

  13. Moss prefers the taints, otherwise he’d be the one hunted. Unless of course those douche bags have a bounty system in practice

  14. I guess I am in the minority but I believe Randy can still bring it. Should be interesting. And fun.

  15. he wants to sign with the Saints because he doesn’t like getting hit. best place to go is the team putting the bounties on people’s head so you don’t get one on yours. makes sense

  16. Moss doesn’t need the money. I think he wants to play football again and help out a team. Is his public image the best, no, but, aside from the “shakedown” in Minn with the traffic officer, he hasn’t been in trouble off the field. I have a feeling he will surprise a lot of people this year and not take this last opportunity for granted. Aside from the Saint bounty issue, which is a shame to the sport, it is a great fit. I would rather see him on my favorite team, but it isn’t going to happen.

    I hate the Patriots but I still liked Moss. It sucks that they brought back my childhood idol just to release him a couple weeks later. I hate the Taints more than any other team ever, that’s including the Fudgepackers. I think that even if I wasn’t a Vikings fan I would hate the Taints.

  18. I remember Randy Moss, catching every pass that’s tossed. Shadows of your speed. Tice, Birk, and McCombs messsed this up. Tomorrow doesn’t look that great. Happy fans pass my way. Looking in their eyes, I see the memory of 1998. You’ll never realize how happy you made me, oh Randy! Well came and took without taking but they sent you away oh Randy. Well you blessed this franchise without taking but they sent you away oh Randy! and I need you today oh you Randy!

    Vikings Nation

    I know he won’t win us a championship but he is the love we lost.

  19. As a Saints fan i was pretty disappointed to hear this. I want to see them resign Meachem and colston. Them bringing in moss shows me that they r planning on losing one or both of them. I do trust Loomis but with all this other crap going on idk if he is really doing the best he can do. No long deal for brees. No franchise tag for nicks. I would expect better.

  20. As much as “Bounty-Gate” has tarnished the Saints name, Randall Moss can come in and restore the pride. This should make everyone forget about all this bounty talk non-sense

  21. Bounties have been part of the NFL for decades. Read Jack Tatum’s autobiography titled “They Call Me Assasin.” Tatum goes into great detail of his time with the Raiders in the 1970’s and the various “pools” that Tatum won for “Knockouts” and bonus money for putting a guy on the disabled list. Nothing has really changed since then.

  22. I guess he wants to play for all the cheaters he can. i guess you cant blame a guy looking for an advantage.

  23. Remember when Moss had a TD celebration where it looked like he took a crap on Lambeau Field?I’m sure that’s totally what the Saints need right now to complete the “we’re taking a crap on football” image.

  24. Haters are trying thier best to do any and everything they can not to see the Saints host the Super Bowl next year.,.,.

    come on down Moss, the Who Dat Nation welcomes you.

  25. I feel so sorry for Saints fans. A week ago, I would have said this is potentially an excellent fit. Brees is a great quarterback and Moss still has skills that would translate well, particularly in the eight home games. But, this is going to be a dysfunctional franchise for the next couple of years with fines, suspensions, losses of draft picks, etc. And, I don’t know that you want a player, like Moss, who is prone to dysfunction at the same time your franchise is experiencing dysfunction.

    Moss would work best in a strong and stable environment, like the Patriots, Steelers, Packers, etc., rather than one like the Saints will have over the next couple of seasons.

  26. Am i the only person that thinks this is a bad fit?

    Brees is more of a timing and percision QB.

    he wants his guys to “be where they are supposed to be”.

    i do not think that is randys M.O.

    YOU ARE CORRECT…BUT: The big difference is the bounties w/the Saints came from the coaches…and thats a bigtime no-no, that’ll probably cost Payton 4-8 games, and forfeiture of draft picks.

    The bounties done by the players…you won’t ever hear about…unless someone is broke, and sells the info.
