Tennessee Titans Won’t Be Bringing Randy Moss Back

Randy Moss will be a free agentSo much for that Jake Locker to Randy Moss dream team. Titans G.M. Mike Reinfeldt told reporters last week that they are not planning on bringing back the wide receiver. Moss will likely hit the free agent market once the NFL lockout is over.

I can’t say that I am too surprised by the move. While Randy Moss’ Tennessee Titans teammates raved about him last season, he never looked comfortable at all on the field in their system. Moss was ineffective as a Titan and was a non-factor during his short tenure with the team. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver is at a crossroads after playing on three different teams throughout the NFL 2010-11 season.

Moss’ stint in Tennessee is one of the most perplexing stories of last season. How could a guy of Moss’ talents go from years of productivity with the New England Patriots to being unable to even crack the starting lineup with a team that desperately needed wide receiver help? Moss only started four of eight games and racked up a whopping 54 yards on five completions.

Moss must have nothing left because the Titans are a team with a huge need at wide receiver. Thanks to Kenny Britt’s offseason “fun”, there is a good chance he could face a suspension. On top of that, his immaturity has to be cause for concern throughout the organization. The Titans cannot count on Britt at this point and definitely can’t build a passing game around him. Moss must have been the troublemaker that most NFL bloggers accuse him to be in order for the Titans to just allow him to walk away at this stage of the game.

I am certainly not surprised although it would have been interesting to see if the Titans could get anything out of Moss and rookie quarterback Jake Locker. I am guessing that Locker will start as QB if there is a season although the length of the lockout will likely determine that. Locker is a lot like Tom Brady so it would have been fun to see if Locker and Moss could develop some kind of chemistry in Tennessee.

I can’t imagine what team would take a run at Randy Moss in 2011 after everything that happened around him last season. Moss told a radio station last month that he would love to return to either New England or even Minnesota. I think the Pats have moved on, although the Vikings could be an option with Brad Childress gone. Other than the Vikings, I can’t imagine another team signing Moss for what he would want to play ball.

And I don’t want to hear about the comparisons to Terrell Owens. The big difference between Owens and Moss is that Owens is still producing. Additionally, Owens took a big pay cut to play last year with the Bengals. It doesn’t appear that Moss is willing to make that financial sacrifice, not now anyway.
