By now, we are still sitting confused knowing the news that the Minnesota Vikings waived Randy Moss after trading a third round pick to New England just last month for him.
Randy Moss, went through waivers and any team had a chance to grab him in order from the worst record (Buffalo) to the best record (New England) but he fell to 22nd where he was claimed by the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans will then claim his remaining 3.88 million dollar contract and now they have to start thinking long-term if they want to re-work a deal with Moss who’s 6.4 million dollar contract is expiring this season.
While there is much to be said about the Vikings and the organization wasting an all important third round pick, the real question is why would the Titans want to take a chance on Randy Moss at this point? It seems like Moss is the NFL’s version of the NBA’s Allen Iverson and maybe there is a stint in the Canadian league upcoming.
Various league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and even the Patriots were among the teams possibly interested in claiming Moss, but maybe they thought twice about their chances of making the playoffs with Moss.
There have been noticeable times during both Patriots and Vikings games where Moss has quit on plays and noticeably has not given one-hundred percent, why does anyone want that on their team? What makes them think it will be any different?
At this point because of the waiver wire system the NFL is basically dragging Moss along asking “Hey who wants him?” It doesn’t mean Moss is going to be committed to the Titans.
By signing someone of that nature the Titans are only impeding their chances of winning as someone who is not giving one-hundred percent can easily rub off to other players.
Not only has he shown little effort during games but afterward he trashed his teams strategy against the New England Patriots. It’s only a matter of time until someone puts a mic in front of Moss and he blows up again as a Titan.
Despite if Moss agrees or not with the strategy he owes it to which ever team that signs his check to work hard and give his all, it’s not like Moss is making $6.50.
