    The trade offer, as reported by some newbie with the dreaded "inside info", is Randy Moss and a 4th round pick for our 1st round pick (Seattle's #24). I find this hard to believe. One thing about Moss, I remember him at a halftime show of a college allstar game, and all he kept saying is he would love to play for a winner before he retires. He actually sounded quite grown up, I remember being impressed with the interview. He even mentioned he spoke to some of the players at the college allstar game, and they asked his advise about playing pro football, which he gladly offered. Though I'd hate to give up a #1 pick for the guy, it would basically be Randy Moss and a 4h rounder for Deion Branch, I don't think you can make a better trade than that.

    I know, I know, ANOTHER Randy Moss thread, but I thought the inside info was interesting. He also mentioned there was an earlier trade offer out there involving Chad Jackson and our #2 for Randy Moss and a Raider pick, but that could've been way back around trade deadline time.

    I did read this, but not going to put much into it.. I do believe when , and I do say when Stallworth is signed, the Moss talk is dead...

    I think it's bull. I don't see the team offering that much for Moss.

    Moss and a 4th rounder for Branch is a pretty good deal. I think the issue would contract terms.

    BTW, I think that it is only posters that think we are (or were) all set at WR. The FO knows better. First Welker (Miami's #1 receiver and returner) and now perhaps Moss or Stallworth!!!

    Did this insider say whether the Raiders are initiating this trade? Or is it us?

    I take Stallworth over Moss . 3 yrs younger, much more potential, and much more upside... There is thought of Brady throwing up to Moss and having him make a play that is kind of salavating, but I still would take Stallworth.. Now if the unthinkable happens and Stallworth boards a plane for Tenn, then Moss becomes a bit more intriguing...

    S93, given how much BB adores draft picks, I would bet they initiated it, and I say no thanks. I'll give a third and Kauczar (I butchered his name badly).

    This is the only rumor I have read where a 1st round pick was involved. Every other one has either a 2nd or 3rd.

    No. We cant give up our #24.

    I don't know if I buy this logic. There is a gap year in 2006 without either receiver, so is it a good deal when you have to wait a year but already have a team 4 points from the Super Bowl? In other words, if Branch was on the team last year, they (a) probably win 1 additional game during the season, have the Colts at home, and win the Super Bowl or (b) have just enough to get a first down in the 4th quarter and hold off a Colts comeback since they now have a much superior receiver than Gaffney/Caldwell/Brown.

    So I mean - In my opinion, the aquisition of Moss (all theoretically) would have to yeild 2 super bowl rings, not just 1, to be classified as a good deal. Personally, I say its 50-50

    On another front, a source close to Bill Belichick reacted with skepticism Monday to reports that the New England coach is "enamored of" Randy Moss and might consider acquiring the Oakland Raiders wide receiver in a trade.

    Said the source: "I'd be very cautious about how I treat second- or third-hand information about what's going on in the mind of Belichick when it comes to this stuff. Unless you're hearing it directly [from Belichick], you're taking a big leap. It happens every year with the Patriots, about free agency and draft plans, a lot of agendas and speculation that rarely end up happening."

    I don't see the team making ANY offer for Moss. Why the hell would a genius like BB want a cancer like him on the team? I really, REALLY hope that we do not sign him. I would much rather have Stallworth.

    Why does everyone love Stallworth? They are reporting on ESPN.com that he is in the NFL substance abuse program, which doesn't even address his inability to stay on the field for a whole season. I don't think we get either Stallworth or Moss. Stallworth may just be a decoy, but Al Davis will want too much.

    I really, really, REALLY don't get how Stallworth has (much) more potential and (much) more upside than Moss. Moss, at his best, is right there with the best players in the NFL. Stallworth has never put together so much as a 1000 yard season and even with a situation like he would find here, it's doubtful that he'll be much more than a below average #1 in his best case scenario.

    So now there is a rumor Moss may go to the seahawks for Branch(sarcasim).

    We would be giving up a one for moss not meion who blasted his way out.

    While I would love to have randy, a one is just to high, especially with the success of BB and Pioli in the First. I would take every one of our first round picks for a five year deal over a 30 year old Moss. maybe with the exception of the TEs

    I would trade a 1st rounder for Moss anyday, if we have Moss then we a 4th title next year. I wouldnt mind Stallworth either, but Moss is just plain sick. He can leap up and catch some over thrown Brady passes that he became famous for last year..
