Randy Moss Eagles Rumors: Troublesome WR a Poor Fit in City of Brotherly Love
How many deep threats can one team have? For the Philadelphia Eagles, evidently, there's always room for more.
The Eagles have been linked to Randy Moss, and if Andy Reid were to add him, it would give Michael Vick a third target to stretch the field. In theory, that sounds great, if this were Madden 12, but Philadelphia needs to move on and focus on the weapons they already have. Moss would be a great red zone target, but as we've seen in the past, he wants to be the focus of the offense, and is looking to be paid as such.
With the Eagles, Moss would be another piece of the puzzle, a role he hasn't thrived in. In Tennessee, he found himself on the bench, struggling to get on the field alongside Kenny Britt. Some of that had to do with coaching, but it also had to do with the fact that he didn't have that explosive first step that got him behind the secondary.
Naturally, the idea is enticing to Philadelphia, but DeSean Jackson wants his money, and Andy Reid has to pay up. The Eagles have been splashing money all over the free agent market, and the star wideout deserves to get paid for all of his contributions to the franchise.
Adding Moss would cost a hefty sum, and it's not likely to work out in terms of team chemistry. After making a major stir in free agency, it's time to turn their attention to their own and getting a contract extension worked out.
Jackson gave a sign of good faith, reporting to camp, and now it's time for Philadelphia to do what's right and give him the money he deserves. Randy Moss should be the last thing on Reid's mind at this juncture of the offseason.
Moss is older, high-priced and isn't a great fit considering all of Philadelphia's targets and how Reid spreads the ball around the field. If the Eagles lock up Jackson and make him happy, then they'll be on the road towards winning a Super Bowl.
