He's baaaaaack!

That's right, folks. Randy Moss is back in the NFL, this time as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to break the news to the Twittersphere on Monday night:

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers was among the first of Moss' football peers to welcome him back to the NFL:

Whether he'll be makin' straight cash money remains to be seen, though the announcement has left some, including ESPN's Jemele Hill, a bit flabbergasted:

Though, as Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News points out, bringing a mercurial star like Moss actually makes some sense considering how "Patriotically" the Niners tend to operate these days:

That isn't likely to change, even with Moss streaking down the side, so long as Alex Smith is the one calling the shots under center. Moss is aware of this, isn't he "John Madden?"

Let's just hope Bruce Arthur of The National Post doesn't (or does?) get his wish as to who the Niners ultimately end up with at quarterback to be Randy's buddy:
