Apparently the San Francisco 49ers see something in the 35-year-old Randy Moss, as he'll be a member of their team for the 2012 season.

According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, the 49ers and Moss have agreed to a one-year contract. 

Moss, who spent all of 2011 retired, will be entering his 14th season in the NFL with a career total of 954 receptions for a whopping 14,858 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns. 

The last time we saw Moss on the football field was back at the end of the 2010 season when he was a rather unhappy camper with the Tennessee Titans

Moss' 2010 season was one that he'd love to forget, as he was traded two times and simply did not fit in anywhere he played. Moss spent four games with the New England Patriots, where he caught nine passes for 139 yards and six touchdowns, and then spent four games with the Minnesota Vikings, catching 13 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns and then was completely invisible with the Titans as he reeled in six passes for 80 yards and no touchdowns. 

With 2010 being one of the worst year's of the future Hall of Fame wide receiver's career, I am sure that he'll do whatever it takes to succeed with the 49ers in 2012. 

Moss has the potential to earn the No. 1 wide receiver role with the 49ers and emerge as Alex Smith's top target this season, that is if the free agent Smith decides to return to San Francisco. 

There has been no word on how much Moss' contract with the 49ers is worth, but I can only imagine that it's a very low-risk deal for the team. 

With that being said, Moss is going to have a lot to prove heading into this upcoming season as many question if he has anything left in the tank.
