For those teams still on the market looking for a free agent wide receiver, Randy Moss might be a good option.
After not being tendered a contract by the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, Moss is still without an employer, and may be perfectly fine with that.
According to ProFootballTalk, Moss is “highly unlikely” to play again in the NFL, barring a “perfect situation.”
That “perfect situation,” the report states, would need “the right combination of quarterback, role, compensation, and prospects for contending.”
Hey, doesn’t that sound like something the 49ers have to offer?
With the injury to wide receiver Michael Crabtree that will sideline him for at least six months, it only seems logical that 49ers would consider bringing back the veteran to re-join their team.
But in May, head coach Jim Harbaugh shot down that notion, and there have been no reports linking the 49ers to Moss this offseason.
Moss recorded 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns while playing in all 16 games last season. By no means was it a disappointment, considering that he had been out of football entirely in 2011 and played for three different teams in 2010.
With 218 games played, 982 receptions, 15,292 yards, 156 touchdowns, and a self-proclamation that he is the greatest wide receiver of all-time, it’s been a hell of a career for Randy Moss.
