Moss didn’t run a 40 for the Saints

Getty Images

We pointed out on Tuesday that, although receiver Randy Moss impressed the Saints with his route-running, he didn’t run 40 yards in a straight line with a stopwatch ticking.

I’ve re-confirmed, via multiple sources, that Moss indeed did not run a 40-yard dash, because there is at least one report that he did.  And at least 100 of you have pointed via email and/or Twitter.

Contrary to those reports, Moss didn’t run a 40-yard dash.

It’s still unknown whether he wasn’t asked to run a 40, or whether he declined.  (Or whether they offered him $1,500 if he could break 4.4. seconds.)

Moss has claimed that he can still run a 4.3.  Of course, a guy doesn’t have to run the 40 to prove that he can still run.

He’ll be doing some more running for at least two unnamed teams next week.

    It’ll be good to have Moss back in the league… if his head is right, that is.

    The only fast 40 moss is going to run again is to the bank with some dumb teams money.

  3. indywilson40 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:20 AM

    He didn’t want Rich Eisen to show him up.

    Make it happen, Loomis.

    I’d love Moss to come join my Ravens, but we don’t do enough 3 wide sets to keep him happy. Although with Cam you never know…

    What would happen if Luck went 0-16 for the Colts this coming season? Would they trade him for Manning?

  7. stevincinci says: Mar 7, 2012 10:24 AM

    Bengals are taking a look at him I heard.

  8. petehemlock says: Mar 7, 2012 10:25 AM

    Straight dash, homie.

  9. marvsleezy says: Mar 7, 2012 10:26 AM

    Most guys in the league say they can run a 4.3, until you actually ask them to prove it, then its a different story.

  10. theawkwardyears says: Mar 7, 2012 10:28 AM

    Did they ask him if he would be willing to kill revis?

  11. ramjam28 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:28 AM

    Go back to the Patriots! Unfinished business, homie.

    “whether they offered him $1,500 if he could break 4.4. seconds”

    Is that a bounty?

  13. djjasonpaul says: Mar 7, 2012 10:31 AM

    here we go with the bounty crap on every Saints post… yuk yuk yuk, poor taste and too soon..

  14. ebeg420 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:32 AM

    Here comes the bounty jokes…..but that was weak!!!

  15. h3min1230 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:32 AM

    Instead, he hit a saint, going 40

  16. destroyedbydansnyder says: Mar 7, 2012 10:33 AM

    Brees to Moss could be scary…… Also having Sproles doesn’t hurt either. That team could be even more fun to watch with or without the upcoming suspended coaches.

  17. kelvinmchale says: Mar 7, 2012 10:34 AM

    You used some version of the word “run” ten times in this post.

  18. JC says: Mar 7, 2012 10:34 AM

    I bet the Redskins are one of the other two teams.

  19. erictheclown says: Mar 7, 2012 10:40 AM

    sketchy info comming from the Saints?

    say it aint so..

  20. n0hopeleft says: Mar 7, 2012 10:40 AM

    It will take one missed read from Brees, or whatever other sorry team that sings him, for him to throw his arms up and start bitching on the sideline.

    Good luck with that.

  21. duanethomas says: Mar 7, 2012 10:42 AM

    Dude, after you run your forty at the combine and pro day you never run another one.

  22. mdc21787 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:43 AM

    only PFT would actually think he was going to run a 40. OBVIOUSLY he cant run a 4.3, he’s randy moss, he was TALKING. geeze guys

  23. axespray says: Mar 7, 2012 10:43 AM

    Vincent Jackson in a Saints uniform > moss.

    Big Route Running Deep Threat WR > Old Deep Threat WR

  24. kchi55 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:43 AM

    Did Moss even claim he could run a 4.3? Wasn’t that Cris Carter?

  25. gregmas1970 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:45 AM

    The question isn’t if he ran a 40, it’s did he drink any?

  26. jacunn2000 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:46 AM

    He better be VERY careful what he says to the caterer in NO. They will beat him down if he talks trash about cajun food.

  27. drshakedown74 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:46 AM

    Put a bounty on him, then make him run.

  28. drshakedown74 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:46 AM


  29. bigbluelou says: Mar 7, 2012 10:48 AM

    More like he drank a 40 of St. Ides…..

  30. 84sgl says: Mar 7, 2012 10:52 AM

    Maybe he didn’t run a 40 because no one in the league is asked or required to run a 40 after their combine/pro day?

  31. contract says: Mar 7, 2012 10:52 AM

    So the reports that he ran the 40 in 4.4 seconds were a little off?

    Reporters are a joke.

  32. mvp43 says: Mar 7, 2012 10:58 AM

    If they made him a D-back, he could probably make a lot more money……….

  33. 1phd says: Mar 7, 2012 11:07 AM

    How was the buffet at the Saints place Randy?

  34. patsfiend says: Mar 7, 2012 11:30 AM

    I love Moss but who cares. Are you going to post an article for every free agent workout where they don’t run a 40?

  35. wesrj21 says: Mar 7, 2012 11:38 AM

    Who cares how fast you run the 40 in? You never run 40 yards uncontested in the NFL. Can he get off the line and get open is the question.

  36. bubbybrister2 says: Mar 7, 2012 11:42 AM

    CORRECTION: Moss ran to buy a 40.

  37. meytonpanning says: Mar 7, 2012 12:17 PM

    Cool, I really missed Randy Moss on Madden.

  38. whatigot8 says: Mar 7, 2012 1:33 PM

    yay make jokes about the most serious scandal ever

  39. kismyanus says: Mar 7, 2012 1:41 PM

    I dont see this going well if the 49ers pick up Moss. There is no way that Moss could be happy with Smith throwing him the ball.
