Randy Moss is officially retired, but he has mused at times in recent weeks about a return. Making the possibility more plausible is the fact that multiple young receivers who worked out with Moss in the offseason rave about his skills.
Despite that, a source with knowledge of the situation says Moss has not attempted to find a job with an NFL team, and that no NFL team has inquired about his services.
Saints receiver Brandin Cooks has said Moss could instantly make an impact on a team, and Buccaeeners wideout Mike Evans has said that Moss has a better burst than the second-year player in the first 10 yards. But it’s believed Moss would return only for a short list of quarterbacks — possibly only Peyton Manning or Tom Brady — and that he has no interest in playing just to play.
But Moss seems to be happy with his burgeoning TV career, including a seat at the main desk for the new FOX pre-pregame show. Some think he has the potential to become a Charles Barkley-style personality, with enough reps.
Though TV would still be there after a comeback, there aren’t many seats at the TV table. Giving one up now could make it hard to get one back later.
