Former Raiders Randy Moss, LaMont Jordan Reunite as Patriots

noel ramosCorrespondent IJuly 26, 2008

When the New England Patriots take the field against the Oakland Raiders in Week 15, there will be a couple familiar (and not too welcome) faces in McAfee Coliseum.

Randy Moss, forever known to Raiders fans as the guy that quit on their team, is now joined by former Oakland teammate LaMont Jordan.

Jordan, 29, asked for his release from the Raiders last November,and was finally granted his wish yesterday when the team released him after barring him from participating in training camp.

He didn't stay on the open market for long: The Patriots signed him to a one-year deal Saturday to help Lawrence Maroney and their running game complement their high-powered offensive attack, led by former unhappy Raider Randy Moss.

The wide receiver and running back that were supposed to revitalize the offense in Oakland may get the chance to do just that together—just not for the Raiders.

These storylines are intriguing. Maybe enough to the point where, if the Raiders enter Week 15 with a winning record, fighting for a wild card spot, flex-scheduling might even permit the game to be moved to prime time. Imagine John Madden and Al Micheals commenting on Brady, Moss, and Jordan against Russell, McFadden, and Walker.

Could make for an entertaining game.
