Randy Moss was released by the Minnesota Vikings just weeks after being traded back to the team that originally drafted him. He could possibly be a major help for a few teams looking to make the playoffs.This a a definite risk-reward for some squads.
Where might be some possible landing spots for this future Hall of Fame receiver?
1. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are surprising a lot of teams this season. Matt Cassel has the Chiefs at a 5-2 record in the AFC. The Chiefs have won so far by a staunch defense and the highest-rated rushing game in the NFL.
However, their run could come to an end if they don't straighten out their passing attack. They are currently dead last in the NFL with only 164 passing yards per game. Dwayne Bowe is a nice possession receiver, but the Chiefs could definitely use a jolt in the passing game.
Randy Moss could re-unite with Matt Cassel in Kansas City and really make the Chiefs a contender in the AFC.
2. St Louis Rams

The St. Louis Rams are another surprise team. They currently are sitting at 4-4 in the NFC West, a division where 8-8 could be a playoff team.
Sam Bradford has played beyond expectations for a rookie QB, despite a receiving corps that includes the names of Mark Clayton and Danny Amendola.
With Clayton out for the season, Randy Moss could give the Rams the edge in the NFC West and potentially give them a shot in the under-performing NFC.
3. Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears would be an interesting team for Randy Moss to end up on. The Bears are currently in the hunt for the NFC North title with a 4-3 record, only a half game behind the Green Bay Packers.
Mike Martz has been known to be an offensive genius, and Randy Moss would give him a new toy to play with.
Jay Cutler has been given a bad rap lately, but many QBs would struggle trying to throw to the likes of Johnny Knox and Devin Hester.
It would be a pretty lethal combo to add the rocket arm of Cutler, the Mike Martz offense and the vertical threat of Randy Moss.
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Josh Freeman has the Buccaneers thinking playoffs for the first time in years.
Coming off a win last week against Arizona, Tampa Bay now sits at 5-2.
Rookie receiver Mike Williams has been great all season for the Buccaneers, but they could really roll the dice and add Randy Moss on the other side.
With two great WRs on either side, a solid tight end in Kellen Winslow, and a tandem of RBs with LeGarrette Blount and Cadillac Williams, Tampa Bay would have one of the more solid offenses in the NFC.
