In some ways it makes sense.
Moss thrived in current offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' offense in New England, posting a 1,400-yard, 23-touchdown season in 2007 and a 1,000-yard, 11-touchdown season in 2008.
There also is the thought that he has to have something, regardless of how little, left in the tank. A player with Moss' type of talent doesn't just drop off the face of the Earth overnight. Sure, it would be understandable if he declined slowly, but to go from 1,000-plus receiving yards one season to bouncing around from team to team, failing to make any sort of impact, is unheard of.
Regardless, the Rams would be smart to avoid making a play for the aging receiver.
Why? Well, let's take a look at the downside of a Moss signing.
