Report: Randy Moss undecided about playing another year

AP

Before the Super Bowl, PFT reported that wide receiver Randy Moss planned to play at least one more year whether or not he was re-signed by the 49ers.

The 49ers have passed on bringing him back and we haven’t heard much about interest elsewhere in the league for the services of a veteran receiver who looked like he was missing the top gear that made him one of the most dangerous wideouts in football earlier in his career. He was a good soldier despite playing a limited role he admitted not liking all that much, but no team has stepped forward to ask him to play any kind of role for them next season.

Now comes word from Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com that Moss isn’t sure whether or not he wants to play any role for any team.  Freeman reports that Moss is still making up his mind as teams start OTAs around the league.

Without more information, it’s hard to tell if Moss’ indecision has anything to do with the league’s indifference to his talents.  But we don’t need too much more in the way of detail to know that Moss’ feelings on a return don’t matter all that much if teams around the league remain interested in moving in other directions.

  1. Come down to H-Town. Be our 3rd guy after Andre and Hopkins. Teach the new kid a few old tricks and be our deep threat guy. Our offense would be incredible.

  2. He was a good veteran presence for the 49ers last year and a great mentor for our young wrs. The dude is toast as far as playing goes though. Nobody needs a deep threat who can’t get deep anymore.

  3. He had his chance to prove the world wrong during the SB, and he fell flat on his face. It doesnt matter if you lost speed if you can still catch passes. Sorry to say he doesnt even try to catch.

  4. If Moss does come back–he needs to hope he gets brought in to just be a role player–3rd receiver option/mentor role. And it would make a ton of sense on a team that is really, really close to knocking down the door and making it to the Superbowl. Houston Texans actually would be a pretty ideal place–dependent upon how well Schaub does and healthy their O-Line, Foster and defense stay this season. Patriots are off this list by default and obviously 49ers are as well. Other teams that could be an okay to ideal match in this capacity would be as follows:
    Baltimore
    Seattle
    Atlanta
    Denver
    Green Bay.
    Just my two cents.

    If he doesn’t come back/retires–he is more of a HOF candidate than McNabb for sure–his only downfall would be his lack off effort/diva attitude he had at different points in his career and off-field issues–which weren’t too many that we know of but still enough to be a concern.

  5. Rumor has it the Vikings changed catering companies and he has already transformed Percy Harvin into a diva so much that he left town so now he is welcome back for his third stint with Minnesota. Just like the first two times, there will be no chance at a Superbowl ring but the plus side is he knows where the good herb is in town.

    Yes he would definitely be able to coach up those young bucks on the finer points of how to take plays off, grow alligator arms, and never, ever block downfield for running backs.

  7. Chicago would be good with Moss,
    Marshall.. Jeffrey.. and Forte. plus Greenbay panic every time somebody say Randy Moss. He built his career by SMOKING the packers on site.

  8. Come on back to Minny and help us win the Superbowl with AD, G. Jennings, and the gang. Then you can retire a Viking like you should.

  9. Moss – No rings
    T.O. – No rings
    Ward – Two rings, Super Bowl MVP

    Only one guy in that group showed up in the games that counted. Only one belongs in the Hall of Fame.

  10. Come to Detroit. We will play you a ton, you will get to work in a system that passes the most in the league. You can be a mentor to the younger guys and if you take some plays off it is all good as long as you do not purposely run the wrong routes. And yeah we could also win some games if all goes well…

  11. Randy Moss not a Hall of Famer?! Pffffffft!
    Aside from being from Pittsburgh, you need to check a highlight reel. Matter of fact, check out the highlight reel just from 1998, I know you were probably born that year, but do it.

    Strange I remember him not doing much in all those games against the Patriots in the playoffs. You know when Pittsburgh was getting eliminated. Ward is not getting into the Hall, he stunk.

  13. Can any of you sheep think for yourself? You read he has lost a step or doesn’t try and you regurgitate that crap. The guy had a QB w/a weak arm in Smith who couldn’t get him the ball. He was replaced by a raw QB who ran a lot and liked the intermediate throws almost to his detriment because he couldn’t read defenses and see Moss was open so much. Do you people even watch games? I challenge you to put on any of last season’s games and try telling anyone Moss isn’t open most of the time. Several times in the playoffs you can clearly see him with a step or two on his guy..often raising his hands..yet his QB is busy throwing 5 yard outs. The man hasn’t had a good QB since Brady and we all saw the numbers he put up with him. Just because the fraternity that is NFL coaches all band together and boycott players like TO and Moss does not mean they can’t play. Both of them would easily be the best #2 option on pretty much 2/3 of the teams.

  14. He should just retire. His time on the 49ers was as forgettable as the Titans.
    I love Randy(2nd best receiver EVER) but how much does he really have in the tank?
    I guess he could still put in work in Detroit or Houston though..

  15. As a Viking fan I really just want Moss to go away. His rookie season was unbelievable but since then he has been an entitled prick and cancer to ant locker room regardless of what the niners said last yr

  16. If he doesn’t play another down in the NFL, he’ll go down as one of the greatest to ever do it. It’ll be interesting to see if/who he chooses to sign a 1 day contract with, considering how sour things went his last go around with the Vikings (even though they were the team that originally drafted him).

  17. He would do well in Philly. Chip Kelly offense would open up more room for him, Desean, McCoy, and Maclin. We would still have a deep threat in Desean, while incorporating a read option plus more screens. Base salary and hopefully a emerald embezzled ring at the end of the season. GO EAGLES!!!

  18. Oh, go ahead and stay, Randy. Sherm and B.B. say that they need you for practice twice a year. I don’t think that you’d get on well with our practice squad, so you may’s well keep stumblin’ for the Niners.

  19. He quit on his team in the past, so it makes sense for him to quit on himself. He should retire and the HOF should shun him or not being a team player. True HOFer’s don’t take plays off, nuff said!

  20. Thank you Randy, I think your the most misunderstood man in the NFL. I know you do a lot of charity work. Also the time you will spend with kids signing autograph’s, and tossing the football with them ,rather than placating to the adult fans who wanted your autograph to sell on ebay and such. Hats off to you, I will always remember you as a Viking!

    Actually he played with Favre after Brady. I would consider Favre better than “good”
