OK, so Randy Moss says he’s done. And then?
It still seems that not everyone is buying into the idea Moss is completely retired. Put yourself in that group if you don’t consider comments from golf courses — where Moss was earlier this week — all that serious. There are still those holding out hope that he can come walking through that door like Willis Reed and help a contending team at some point during the season. After all, it doesn’t seem that far-fetched.
NFL Network information man Jason La Canfora checked in on “NFL Total Access” Friday, and isn’t sold on Moss riding into the sunset either.
“You have to look at the reality of how he spent the lockout,” La Canfora said. “He was killing it in the weight room. Two-a-days, training as hard as he ever had in his life hoping to catch on with a contending team. That didn’t happen then, he obviously said he’s going to retire. It’s great that he reiterated that. But I continue to maintain, if the right team called at the right time, with the right quarterback at the right price, Moss could be coaxed out of retirement. … Moss got himself in tip-top shape for a reason.”
He certainly did. It’s fact that Moss prepared for this season for a reason and was reported to be in excellent shape. It could very well be that the right situation has to present itself — for both sides — before we see the future Hall of Famer on a field again.
