Randy Moss Reportedly a ‘Player of Interest’ for Saints

Randy Moss decided to retire from the NFL after not receiving an offer of interest during the offseason. We said there was no way he was retiring, particularly because it wasn’t on his terms. A recent report said Moss would want to return to the Patriots. On Saturday, WWL-TV in New Orleans reported that Moss was at the team’s facility.

Pro Football Talk called the report “erroneous,” saying that if Moss visited the facility he did so without the team contacting agent Joel Segal. Jason La Canfora of NFL Network added that “there is nothing cooking” between the two sides.

Regardless of whether or not Moss was at the Saints’ facility, it’s pretty obvious that Randy wants to play this year. The Patriots don’t seem to be interested in him, but with Marques Colston out four weeks with a broken collarbone, and Lance Moore day-to-day with a groin injury, it makes sense for the Saints to consider all options. I don’t view Moss as a Pro Bowl receiver anymore, but he still is a good deep threat. It probably would be a good idea for New Orleans to at least work him out.

    Based on their game one performance, the Saints better focus on getting some defensive backs who can cover somebody.

    To be fair, Aaron Rodgers probably would have shredded any defense that night.

    He was on fire, but the Saints were not covering anyone until some time in the second half.  They had  no answer for the five receiver package in the first half.
