Randy Moss is joining the San Francisco 49ers.
Moss, who had a workout with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh today, has reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the team, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. No financial terms of the contract have been disclosed.
For Moss, the deal means that one of the most exciting, explosive playmakers ever to play the wide receiver position is officially back in the NFL after a year away. If Moss is anything like the great player he once was, this is a big deal for the 49ers.
But the big question is whether Moss really has anything left. In 2010 he was traded from the Patriots to the Vikings, then cut by the Vikings and picked up by the Titans, and through it all he failed to make an impact on any of his teams. Then he missed all of 2011, and now he’s 35 years old and trying to make a comeback.
But if he’s capable of a comeback, the team that hosted the NFC Championship Game just got much better in the passing game.
