Minnesota Vikings Should Sign Randy Moss

Recently, Randy Moss suggested that he would not be returning to the San Francisco 49ers for the 2013 NFL season. He is coming off his only season with the 49ers, a year where he caught 28 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns. It could be argued that his value was greater than his numbers reflect–he provided a deep threat for a team that relied heavily on their run game for most of the season. The 36 year-old future Hall of Famer began his career with the Minnesota Vikings in 2008 and insists he could be a key addition to a contender.

With that, let’s start some wild speculation about the uniform Moss will be wearing in 2013. The Minnesota Vikings seem like an ideal fit. Why? They lack a core of wide receivers, especially a deep-threat. Although Moss is past his prime, he still moves fairly well and has the ability to draw double coverage. A respected deep threat would help the Vikings largely one-dimensional offense stretch the field, and, in turn, give centerpieces Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin some room to make plays.

Moss might not be thrilled to have pedestrian QB Christian Ponder throwing him the ball, but Ponder did lead Minnesota to the playoffs. While doing so, he appeared to make strides towards being a competent NFL QB and even showed some improvement throwing the deep ball, a task that would become much less difficult with Moss as a target.

It’s true that Moss‘ last stint in Minnesota didn’t end especially well. He was let go after a mediocre four games and a bizarre incident with a team caterer. However, it seems like his dismissal was due to the fact that Moss and coach Brad Childress butted heads throughout his brief stay in Minnesota than that he had an inherent issue with the organization as a whole. In fact, owner Zygi Wilf was completely unaware of Moss’ dismissal–a factor in Childress’ eventual firing. But now, Childress is gone and Moss seems to have embraced his diminished role at this point in his career.

Living in the Twin Cities, I can say that the Vikings fan base would endorse such a signing. Despite Moss‘ shenanigans, he remains a fan favorite in Minnesota where fans remember the high-flying Randy Moss of yesteryear–including his rookie year where he scored 17 touchdowns in 16 games.

The more I think about it, the more the fit makes sense. Minnesota’s offense desperately needs receivers–especially a deep threat. The Vikings were a playoff team in 2012 and if Ponder can continue to improve, they have the pieces to be a legitimate contender. Moss‘ career would come full circle in Minnesota. No matter who is behind center, an offense that features Peterson, Harvin and Moss would present any defense with logistical issues.

Get on the bandwagon! Randy Moss/Vikings 3.0 is going to be awesome!

Moss is another black criminal.

His promise to propel his team to a win was BS just like him.

Moss would cost nothing, the point is if he would sign or not.

He beats DA, Burton and some of the other junk recievers we have

Randy Moss would be a great tutor to Cordelle Patterson. Bring him in with their offensive weapons they have along with their improved defense, and they're instant Super Bowl Contenders.

Tell randymoss to GO SUCK AN EGG.

He is ONLY about HIMSELF, he WAS NEVER A TEAM PLAYER.

Who CARES HOW MUCH HE IS WORTH??

Regardles of his "net worth", in my mind his net worth is ZERO.

Cris Carter was better

Cris Carter would do a better job at this point. Moss isn't too old either, he has a few more years left in him if he made a serious effort, so don't make this about age. Jerry Rice was 38 when he retired and his last years were way more productive than Moss has been lately. This is more about attitude and that eye of the tiger that Moss lost long ago. He just doesn't care anymore, you can see it, and none of the teams signing him take him very seriously anymore either, that's what his problem is. Time to retire Randy, unless you want to go out on the bench being used for clean up duty in garbage time so the new guys don't get hurt. I say that sadly, he was an awesome receiver when we drafted him, some of the best games and plays I ever watched. In the end though, no ring for Randy, but hey Cris Carter never did get his either so don't feel too bad Randy, you are in good company.

He can be a good slot receiver for a team with good quaterback that really in the need of a slot receiver.He is not a deep threat anymore at 36.I dont think he will go back to the Vickings or New England.Teams like Giants,Saints,Steelers,Colts,R edskins can benefit by his service.
