Randy Moss reportedly agrees to deal with 49ers
Randy Moss has agreed to a one-year deal with the 49ers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Moss worked out for the team Monday with coach Jim Harbaugh throwing to him. Things must have gone well because Moss reportedly has agreed to join the team.
The 49ers stated they were not interested in pursuing free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, who many, including us, thought would be a great fit for the team. Instead, they decided their big move would be signing Randy.
I really don’t see how this can work out well. Moss “vomited” all over the Vikings’ locker room two seasons ago before becoming a total non-factor in Tennessee. He may be able to run fast and be a deep threat, but what else does he offer a team? He generally has a bad attitude and doesn’t try hard, and he didn’t even play last year. Plus, with Alex Smith’s arm strength limitations, we wonder if he can bomb the ball downfield to Moss the way Tom Brady could.
Jim Harbaugh is a disciplinarian who knows how to keep his team in check, but we can’t imagine this benefiting the 49ers much.
