The report that the New York Jets have legitimate interest in adding pending free agent Randy Moss generated a significant level of buzz earlier this week. With receivers Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith potentially all hitting the free-agent market, there’s some logic to the Jets’ interest in Moss.
Just don’t expect Jets QB Mark Sanchez to openly campaign for Moss the way others have done for Nnamdi Asomugha or Plaxico Burress. When asked if he would welcome Moss to the Jets, Sanchez chose to keep himself out of the conversation.
“Whoever they bring in they obviously assume will help our team,” Sanchez said diplomatically. “We’re trying to bring in guys with good attitudes who are excited to play ball. If that’s what Randy is all about, it would be fun for all of us. We’ll see what happens.”
That’s not to suggest Sanchez doesn’t think Moss could help the Jets.
“You saw him early in the season last year play really well,” Sanchez said. ”He’s been great with Tom Brady, and has a lot of big-game experience. I’m sure he still has some big catches left in him. Any type of deep threat like that in a big, tall target is always a good addition for your team.”
Not that he’s saying, he’s just saying.
