Veteran free agent WR Randy Moss is now ready to play some football, well that’s according to his agent Joel Segal. Segal told reporters that, “Randy has been working out, two-a-days, all spring and summer in West Virginia.” Interesting. I think this is nothing more than an agent trying to get a contract for his player.
Segal continued, “Whatever team winds up getting Randy, they’re going to know they’re getting the old Randy Moss. He’s not coming in to be on the team, he’s going to be Randy Moss- a difference maker.” Compelling stuff right there. But if I were the head coach of a team, I want to know where that “difference maker” was last year.
Moss certainly wasn’t a difference maker on his three-team tour of the NFL last season. He recorded 28 catches for 393 yards. Moss finished the second-half of the season with the Tennessee Titans and wound up with six receptions in eight games. That’s difference making numbers right there.
Segal said Randy Moss is in “freakish shape”. He ought to be, he hasn’t played football since 2009. You can’t consider the 2010 effort an actual football season.
I have no doubt that Moss will land somewhere in 2011, and regardless of what his agent says, the team that gets him will have to deal with his moody behavior and taking the occasional play off on the field. Moss could have been one of the all-time greats in the NFL but throughout his career, he has always seemed bored by the game and at the age of 34, I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
