When the Minnesota Vikings finally get around to placing Randy Moss on waivers, teams will have 24 hours to put a claim in on the wide receiver. The Oakland Tribune reports that head coach Tom Cable and the Raiders would be open to the idea of having Moss return to Oakland.
“We have an interest in anyone we think can help us,” Cable said.
When asked if attempting to claim Moss was a distinct possibility, Cable said, “Well, I wouldn’t (rule it out). I don’t think you ever do if you think it can make your team better.”
Raiders managing general partner Al Davis directed blame at coaches Norv Turner and Art Shell for the way Moss’ Raiders tenure failed to produce the kind of results it did for the Vikings in his first stint there and for the Patriots.
“Randy Moss was great here for us,” Davis said Sept. 12, 2009. “We couldn’t satisfy Randy. That was our fault. He’s a truly great player. The idea when you get a great player is to make him happy and satisfy him.”
Could there be a more perfect ending to this chapter of the Randy Moss saga?
We know how much Davis loves to make waves and this time around the Raiders offense is showing real signs of life with not one, but two quarterbacks that can get Moss the ball with help of a solid running game.
Even though I think the Chiefs should take a shot on Moss, odds have to favor him not even making it down to Kansas City on the waiver wire.
