Throughout the offseason, Randy Moss hasn’t talked to reporters in San Francisco.
But everyone there is talking about him, and all the reviews are glowing.
CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco said the two wide receivers who had the best offseasons are also their starters — Michael Crabtree and Moss.
Crabtree should benefit greatly from having another good wideout alongside him, and so far Moss is playing the part.
After being “retired” in 2011 and playing with three teams in 2010, it was reasonable to wonder if he’d ever resurface. But his 49ers coaches and teammates say he’s been great on the field, and being with a team expected to contend should help keep his “play when I want to” instincts curbed.
Maiocco made an excellent point about the fit, mentioning that Moss excelled at getting in the air and catching underthrown deep balls, since he can use his size as an advantage. Niners quarterback Alex Smith has been known to offer up a few of those.
It’s all good news now, but with Moss, everything’s truly week-to-week.
