Randy Moss is one of the best receivers of all time, if not the second best behind Jerry Rice. His agent said earlier this offseason that he was in great shape and was looking to contribute. At this point in his career, Moss wants to play for a contender.
When Bill Belichick cuts you loose, that tends to mean something. When you play for three teams in one season, that says a lot more. Moss behaved himself in New England but that is because he was fed the ball and winning.
The list of contenders looking for a receiver is at one, maybe two. The Ravens could really use another receiver and if Malcom Floyd leaves, the Chargers should consider investing in another receiver as well. No other top flight team has a need at receiver and is why Moss chose to retire.
Unfortunately, it seems odd for him to retire now. He never won a ring and he is about to get passed on the all time touchdown list if Terrell Owens comes back. Moss received an offer from the Philadelphia Eagles after filing his retirement papers, which seemed odd but there is apparent interest there even though Moss would not likely be a featured receiver with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin as the starters.

No way Moss stays retired. All he is looking for is a multi-year contract. A.J. Smith would be nuts not to at least make an offer and pick up the phone.
Rivers is good but he still needs someone outside of Jackson and Gates to get the ball to, especially since Legedu Naanee and Malcom Floyd are likely gone.
