Randy Moss still has talent so why is he retired? Well, he may not be for very much longer.

The New York Giants GM Jerry Reese was asked about the possibility of signing Randy Moss; he navigated around the subject, not saying anything that would rule it either way.

He did however say that they “Investigate everything.” This is a good sign for Giants fans who know that their team needs to do something if they are going to salvage the season.

Here are three reasons why Randy Moss is needed.

Demands Attention

Randy Moss is a receiver that demands defenses to take notice of him.

The Giants are looking for a slot receiver more than a deep threat receiver but the more options that Eli Manning has offensively the better the offense will run.

The offense is a system that is dependent on the reads that they see. The offense adjusts to the game that the defense is playing.

Randy Moss may not seem to fit into this type of offense but he is a veteran and he will able to adjust if need be.

He also gives the option to have two big-play receivers on the field at one time.

Domenik Hixon is out for the season

Domenik Hixon is now out for the season with an ACL tear. This is a huge hit to the receiving corps of the Giants.

The thinning depth at the receiver position calls for a free agent to be brought in.

Randy Moss is athletic and a player that will immediately be able to have an impact for the Giants if he is able to gain any semblance of fitness.


The Giants are looking for something to turn their campaign around.

The defense looks like a shell of its former self this season and more than likely will not be able to carry the team like they have in the past.

The Giants need to step up their offense if they have any hope of salvaging anything this season and a big move to bring back Randy Moss might just invoke a miracle for the club.

It could breathe a bit of new life and what else could they ask for besides a fresh start.
