Attempting to make a comeback after a year-long hiatus, Randy Moss had his first workout for the New Orleans Saints today. Overall, it seemed to go as good as the seven-time Pro Bowler could have hoped.

According to Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, Moss looked great.

@ hearing from multiple sources re Randy Moss workout today he lit it up. Was told he ran about 45 routes and "looked like the old Randy."

If the workout is any indication of Moss' desire to return to being a top-tier receiver in the NFL, he seems to be on the right path.

From Glazer's reports, Moss is nowhere near the uninspired, lazy player he was in his last NFL season back in 2010.

Glazer also tweeted:

From what I gather all parties were pretty floored by his workout. Probably didn't expect him to perform the way he did

Moss only put up a total of 393 yards and five touchdowns playing for three different teams in 2010, a far cry from the 1,264 yards and 13 touchdowns he put up in 2009.

Although it may take more than one great practice to convince NFL organizations that he is back, this first workout is a great way to get his name back on the minds of the NFL brass in a positive manner.
