The Vikings have waived Randy Moss. If he isn't claimed he could become an unrestricted free agent.
There have been reports that the Bears are among the interested teams. While you never underestimate a desperate coach and/or general manager, and Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo qualify, this doesn't make sense for the Bears.
If the Bears receiving corps haven't mastered offensive coordinator Mike Martz's schemes by now, what makes them think Moss will in coming weeks? It would be Moss' third offense this season, after all.
Although his skills are declining, Moss brings speed and big-play ability, but the Bears already have speed --- lots of it, in fact, with Devin Hester and Johnny Knox. What they don't have is Moss' size unless you count the exiled Devin Aromashodu, but Knox and Hester are faster at this stage of Moss' career.
Has there ever been a non-kicker/punter who has played for three different teams in the same season?
Here's the official statement released by the Vikings: "This decision was made based on what we thought was in the best interests of the Minnesota Vikings, both in the short and long term," said coach Brad Childress. "We wish Randy the best as he moves forward in his career."
After talking to an insider in the Moss camp, don't believe much you read. They don't know what's going on or he might end up. Moss wants to play this season. That's all my source could say after speaking with Randy several times today.
Moss wants to play this season. He'll land somewhere. Maybe even in Buffalo, where the Bears could see him this week.
