    Figured it has been awhile since we had a Moss thread. Anyhow, he just unretired on his ustream broadcast. If you follow his twitter you will know. Also, he cut off his hair. In case anyone is interested.

    Actually, he might have been better without the hair, the hair might have weighed him down a bit.

    He posted a picture the other day that looks like it was taken at Patriot Place FWIW.

    If a player unretires and no GM in the NFL cares, does he really unretire? Moss won't play ever again unless it is the UFL, CFL, or that crap league TO is playing for.

    I think we need a three pronged approach to the WR position.

    First resign Welker
    Second sign Brandon Lloyd
    Third bring in something bigger - high draft pick, reggie Wayne, Vincent Jackson. Something that really adds to the O.
    This leaves room for Branch and Edelman.
    Low draft picks, Tiquan, and the like will have to beat out the above to make it.
    Where would Moss fit in this? I see two spots instead of Lloyd or instead of Branch I can see reasons for any of the three. In the end I just don't see BB going down the Moss road again.

    If he can get in shape and convince a GM somewhere that he won't be a distraction, I could see him landing somewhwere in the NFL. But I highly doubt it'll be here and, wherever it happens to be, I don't think it'll work out because I don't think he has anything left in the tank (hair or no hair).

    Why not bring him into camp, take a look? He'd be near vet minimum right now. BB, Brady, McDaniels, Welker and Moss re-unite for some unfinished business. This time, they have help.

    He was reportedly waiting for Kevin Faulk in his driveway when he returned from the Super Bowl, so he might've actually been at Patriot Place recently.

    Lloyd signed with Tom Condon (per Curran on twitter) which isn't good for us.

    Moss was fine with McDaniels, he didn't get along with O'Brien.

    I would be fine with signing Moss to go with Welker. Re-sign Branch as a backup. That's three.

    Then we have to get serious about youth by bringing in two young WR whether they're both through the draft or one from the draft and one from FA.

    Bottom line for me, we have to upgrade a WR spot - and if that's with Moss, fine - and we have to get younger which we will likely do in the draft.

    Why? I feel like the Mcdaniels connection would be enough to at least bring him in for a look and an offer

    It has been automatic for the past year to move any Moss threads to the Practice Squad. But it's the off season and so let's try this one and see if it goes the way of past ***** **** threads.

    Maybe people have finally accepted the fact that it's over for ***** **** and he is not coming back as a player, ever.

    I said it's not good not impossible.

    If I'm not mistaken we haven't drafted or signed a Condon client since the Watson holdout. We may have dealt with him if an existing player switched to him, I'm not sure about that, but Condon isn't a Patriots friendly agent.

    Why does Pioneer Basement have a web page that you can log on to tell everyone how much you love basements?

    In other late breaking news ,Terrell Owens has un-cried and swears he won't break down in public ever again...

    I'm sure the Rams would love to have him.

    well, then again Fisher has dealt with Moss before, so probably not. lol

    Ha, he wasn't a problem in TN with Fisher, Vince Young was too busy being a snot nosed baby, supposedly Moss asked what he got himself into in Tennessee. Then again, they all said he was done.

    Yeah, and if you saw him with the Titans you could see why, Randy looked slooooooooow

    I love Randy he's my fav player ever but I'm not really a fan of going back to the past to fix future problems. Bottom line is last time the world saw Moss he didn't look like he belonged in the NFL.

    I'll be honest, I bring him back. With him, Welker, Gron, AH on the field with Riddley (or Vereen who's makeup I like) this offense adds a whole new dimension. Randy doesn't need to beat double coverage, he'd just need to beat man coverage and occasionally pull the safeties deep. I think he can still do that if he's willing to accept the role. Keep Branch to work him in,and then draft a couple young guys with upside.

    I did, he didn't look that bad, compared to the other guys TN had on the field. Then again aside from Kenny Britt, the talent falls off pretty good. Moss' time is done as far as being a Pat. Saw him mention he'd like to go to Buffalo or the Jets on twitter to one fan this past weekend.

    Is McDaniels going to give Moss 25 year old legs. Moss is done. Time to move on. Would rather have Reggie Wayne than Moss.

    Also, it doesn't matter who Lloyd's agent is. I don't think he is going to get a lot of play because he has had attitude problems and he can only perform in McDaniels' system. The Rams didn't get Lloyd in a trade for next to nothing for a reason.

    Lloyd has had two good years and both with McDaniels. He didn't perform well early last season with the Broncos and rebounded when he was traded to the Rams.

    I am ok with that plan.

    The way I see it we have 3 spots that I would like to be "filled" (obviously TC and what kind of shape you come in matters) - Welker, Branch, Edelman. After that I bring back guys like Tiquan and low draft picks to fight in camp.

    Leaving two spots to try and fill. I would be fine with Moss taking one though I would perfer Brandon Lloyd or something similar. The second empty spot needs to be the go for broke variety whether it is Reggie Wayne, Vjax, a first round pick I dont care, or something similar. (for the record I am not big on VJax because of off the field but thats the kind of talent I am looking for in that spot).

    All this laid out and would rather see them go nuts on the D side of the ball but this is a WR thread.
