The Chicago Bears could pursue the "old Randy Moss"

New, comments

I can not wait until the damn lockout is over and the Bears make what ever free agent moves they are gonna make. The speculation posts that have taken over Windy City Gridiron on who the Bears will sign or who they won't sign, are getting on, and jumping up and down on my last nerve. But with that being said, (deep sigh) here's another wide receiver for you to think about... Randy Moss.

Yesterday on nfl.com, Moss's agent Joel Segal, was beating the drum for his client.

"Randy has been working out, two-a-days, all spring and summer in West Virginia," Segal said. "He is determined, motivated and quite frankly has a huge chip on his shoulder. Whatever team ends up getting Randy, they're going to know they're getting the old Randy Moss. He's not just coming in to be on the team, he's going to be Randy Moss -- a difference maker."

Randy Moss is 34 years old, he was on three teams last year, and he didn't do a whole hell of a lot with either. His 28 total receptions was by far the worst of his career, as was his 393 yards. He did have 5 combined touchdowns, so that's not all bad.

He would quiet the 'we need a tall wide out' fans, but I don't know what else he'd bring to the field. He'd be a red zone target for a fade route or two per game. He can still be a deep threat that will go up and get it on occasion, but would he be be a fit for Chicago? I don't know, and quite frankly, I don't care. I'm beyond ready for some real football.
