Saints to work out Randy Moss on Tuesday

Randy Moss 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.

    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.

    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.

    Moss dis Moss dat mossdismossdat

  4. atwatercrushesokoye says: Mar 5, 2012 10:27 PM

    Gregg Williams has $1500 for the first ball boy who takes him out.

  5. FinFan68 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:29 PM

    Proof? Uh oh. Gonna be a short visit Randy

  6. eastsideballa says: Mar 5, 2012 10:29 PM

    My job is to take the ball deep and take the top off the defense.

    Randy Moss wants his bounties in “Straight Cash Homie”

    wow, randy moss to the saints, offense will rock

  8. halen11 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:30 PM

    This is the NFL’s punishment to the Saints.

  9. runmjd says: Mar 5, 2012 10:31 PM

    Thank God it’s not Jacksonville…. ew.

  10. katrinasafterbirth says: Mar 5, 2012 10:32 PM

    They go from trying to injure players to a guy who doesn’t want any contact…go figure.

  11. schmokes says: Mar 5, 2012 10:32 PM

    This is definitely the best team for Moss to go to if he needs a little extra cash.

  12. randygnyc says: Mar 5, 2012 10:32 PM

    Just what they need.

    “no need to look over there, when you can look over here”.

  13. farvite says: Mar 5, 2012 10:32 PM

    Good fit if they lose Meachem and/or Colston.

  14. j0esixpack says: Mar 5, 2012 10:36 PM

    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.

  15. mjbulls45 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:36 PM

    he gave up on favre vs pats & pack

    he quit on favre

    and favre was having $$$ on his head ,

    ha

  16. Matt Volk says: Mar 5, 2012 10:36 PM

    Lol

  17. riverhorsey says: Mar 5, 2012 10:36 PM

    Voo Doo New Orleans

  18. dondada10 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:39 PM

    Randy Moss will restore the Saints’ image after that whole bounty thing.

  19. noeffinway says: Mar 5, 2012 10:39 PM

    Guess it’s time to scrape of the moss and see what’s left?

  20. gb4mn0 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:41 PM

    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.

  21. caseyanthonymunoz says: Mar 5, 2012 10:42 PM

    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.”

  22. touchdownroddywhite says: Mar 5, 2012 10:45 PM

    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…

  23. themonster49 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:46 PM

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

  24. lombardihero says: Mar 5, 2012 10:48 PM

    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.

  25. redbullenergydrink says: Mar 5, 2012 10:49 PM

    I think the Saints should spend their time recruiting guys on defense given the upcoming suspensions.

  26. lunarpie says: Mar 5, 2012 10:50 PM

    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….

  27. patriotinvasion says: Mar 5, 2012 10:51 PM

    Way to change the subject New Orleans….haha

  28. firedup1 says: Mar 5, 2012 10:51 PM

    I hope he hits hard….oh wait he plays offense.

  29. stevenfbrackett says: Mar 5, 2012 10:51 PM

    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?

  30. markbul says: Mar 5, 2012 10:56 PM

    Next up – Albert Haynesworth.

  31. denverwally says: Mar 5, 2012 10:58 PM

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

    (for your Pittsburgh fans, that was sarcasm).

  32. ascensionparish says: Mar 5, 2012 10:58 PM

    Embrace your inner dark side Saints fans. Who Dat!

  33. trapshoot says: Mar 5, 2012 11:02 PM

    Where will he play on their soon to be revamped defense?

  34. Tarkus says: Mar 5, 2012 11:02 PM

    Moss should help restore their good name.

  36. nukaten says: Mar 5, 2012 11:16 PM

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

  37. redbird80 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:17 PM

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

  38. firedup1 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:18 PM

    About seven years ago this would have been news.

  39. brenenostler says: Mar 5, 2012 11:19 PM

    I guess it makes sense to bring in someone who will play cheaply since Brees basically wants all the team’s money.

  40. championcs3 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:20 PM

    I hate the patriots do much I’d love to see them make the super bowl again n LOSE to moss n the saints

  41. championcs3 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:29 PM

    How great would it b to see moss n the saints beat the pats up next superbowl

  42. ace1716 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:31 PM

    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

  43. ppc50 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:44 PM

    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.

  44. nosaintsfan79 says: Mar 5, 2012 11:59 PM

    I don’t even know this team anymore. This should clean up their image. unbelievable

  45. nosaintsfan79 says: Mar 6, 2012 12:04 AM

    PAY DREW BREES!!!!

    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.

  47. subzero00 says: Mar 6, 2012 12:05 AM

    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.

  48. rekon04 says: Mar 6, 2012 12:09 AM

    Moss signed with the the patriots before spygate and now could possibly sign with the saints during bountygate……

  49. stampnhawk says: Mar 6, 2012 12:36 AM

    Moss, Haynesworth, and then please welcome Terrell Owens and JaMarcus Russell.

  50. conquerpeace4d says: Mar 6, 2012 12:53 AM

    If I can’t get to it…..nobody can get to it.

  51. kibblesnvick says: Mar 6, 2012 1:38 AM

    I’m not a Saints fan, but can you imagine Colston and Vincent Jackson on the same side of the ball as Brees? Holy s*^%!!

  52. ricksaints says: Mar 6, 2012 1:41 AM

    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.

  53. craigsimsrules says: Mar 6, 2012 1:46 AM

    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

  54. saintsstillwillwin says: Mar 6, 2012 2:39 AM

    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.

  55. deluxe3333 says: Mar 6, 2012 3:39 AM

    The Saints have put out an official statement saying that in order for them to sign Moss he would have to promise to grow back the fro

  56. tropicpurple says: Mar 6, 2012 5:51 AM

    Fire, meet gasoline

  57. kismyanus says: Mar 6, 2012 6:10 AM

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

  58. adammuz says: Mar 6, 2012 6:17 AM

    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.

  59. tdrundmc says: Mar 6, 2012 6:30 AM

    Randy Moss is washed up

  60. shoooootum says: Mar 6, 2012 8:08 AM

    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.

  61. rameyag says: Mar 6, 2012 8:27 AM

    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.

  62. erictheclown says: Mar 6, 2012 8:28 AM

    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.

  63. evilmiketomlin says: Mar 6, 2012 9:13 AM

    If Moss is signed, It is predicted that he will quit by next week, due to the food tasting horrible at the team buffet

    @evil_tomlin on Twitter

  64. klunge says: Mar 6, 2012 9:28 AM

    How much is the bounty for hitting another player with your car?

  65. tqaztec says: Mar 6, 2012 9:29 AM

    Saying Moss is a Saint is wrong on so many levels.

    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.
