Randy Moss Rumors: Are the Tennessee Titans A Good Fit?

New, comments

So the Randy Moss story has taken on a life of it's own over the past 24 hours.  About this time yesterday it came out that the Vikings had waived him, and then a couple of hours later it came out that he hadn't actually been waived by the team yet.  I would assume that the Vikings will actually waive him today which would mean that teams that would be able to put a claim in on him over the next 24 hours. It's official, Randy Moss has been cut and is on the waiver wire until 4 p.m. tomorrow (per PFT).

Here is the waiver order according to Jason LaCanofra of the NFL Network:

BUF CAR DAL SF DEN DET MIN CIN CLE SD AZ JAX STL OAK WAS SEA CHI MIA PHI GB NO TEN HOU IND KC TB NYG BAL ATL NYJ PIT NE

I see at least five teams (SD, STL, OAK, SEA, and MIA) that it makes sense would claim Moss before the Titans ever got a crack at him. I think he would be a good fit here, and while I still don't think the Titans would do it, if they were ever going to do it this is the perfect year because you are only committed to him for the rest of this season, and if you can motivate him to play he makes the offense more explosive by just being lined up on the field.  The Titans have to feel like the division is ripe for the picking, and Moss is the type of player that could put them over the top.

Bill Barnwell of Football Outsiders and ESPN.com says that Moss would be a 3/10 fit for the Titans:

The Titans have clearly established a trend of getting bad attitudes out of their locker room; the only reason they would consider Moss would be if Kenny Britt's injury is a season-ender.

Another wrinkle in all this is whichever team claims him would also receive a comp pick if they did not sign him after the season, and that pick could be as high as the third round.

I really don't see a reason for the Titans to not put a claim in on him.
