Randy Moss has announced his retirement. A sure-fire Hall-of-Famer, Moss claims that he is done with football.

A dismal 2010 season had Moss playing for three teams (Patriots, Vikings, and Titans), catching only 28 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns.  Randy was on the downside of a prolific career that ended with a whimper.

Since the announcement, there has been plenty of speculation on whether Moss is serious about staying away from the NFL.  ESPN's Chris Carter hinted that the Patriots may have made an offer to Moss since his announcement.  This was two days ago and nothing has come of it. 

Maybe Moss is serious.  Maybe Moss is waiting for the right offer.  A report has surfaced earlier today the Philadelphia Eagles have made an offer to Randy Moss.  That's right, the team that has taken the NFL by storm by going all-in and opening up their wallets post-lockout to gather top talent for a Super Bowl run has expressed interest in Moss's talents.

The acquisition of Moss by the Philadelphia Eagles could do wonders for an already potent offense. Could the offer be in response to DeSean Jackson's current holdout or worries about Jeremy Maclin's recent illness? 

Maybe neither. Maybe both. 

Maybe the Eagles are just trying to add a big, prolific receiver to their arsenal.  No matter the case, it's an exciting time to be an Eagles fan.

Time will tell if Randy Moss is serious about staying retired.  There won't be many better offers out there with a chance at a title run.  I think Moss would like another chance to end his career on a high note.  Wouldn't it be nice if that high note involved hoisting the Lombardi trophy in an Eagles uniform?
