Is this the last we've seen of Randy Moss?
The Rams need a big time player at wide receiver. Simply put, they are playing with a bunch of "two's and three's" right now, with no true elite receiver on the roster. But there is a guy sitting at home that fits that description, and he is just waiting for the right team to call.
Of course, I'm talking about Randy Moss.
Moss is one of the most prolific wide receivers in the history of the National Football League. Sure, he has probably lost half a step as he has gotten older, but he is still better than anybody the Rams have. Do you think he would be interested in catching passes from Sam Bradford, the best young quarterback in the league? I think he would, and there is another reason he might come to St. Louis.
He had his best season as a pro while playing for offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Moss has the reputation as being tough to coach and that he only plays when he wants to play. The Rams could go into this deal with a certain amount of familiarity already in place between McDaniels and Moss. Personally, I think all of that is overblown. Moss has made mistakes, but he seems like an honest guy that admits when he was wrong.
The bottom line is, the guy can stretch the defense better than any receiver that has ever played the game. The Rams need help, with a brutal schedule for the first seven weeks of the season. They need a guy that can come in here and understand Josh McDaniels offense.
Randy Moss is that guy! Now all Rams GM Billy Devaney needs to do is make that call.
