After he was waived by the Minnesota Vikings, there were some that believed Randy Moss might be a fit with the Chiefs. Turns out Scott Pioli and Todd Haley decided he wasn’t a fit and did not put a waiver claim in, but that doesn’t mean Moss won’t be appearing in Kansas City this season after being claimed by the Tennessee Titans.
Despite his lack of production, boorish behavior and the fact that his on and off-field antics forced two teams to part ways with him in the span of 26 days, Moss was deemed an acceptable risk for Jeff Fisher and the Titans, who claimed Moss off of waivers late Wednesday afternoon. Tennessee was No. 22 on the NFL’s waiver order (which goes from worst record to best), meaning 21 other teams passed on the chance to bring Moss onto their team.
Assuming he sticks with the Titans — not exactly a sure thing after his stint with the Vikings — the Chiefs will see Moss week 16 in a game that very well could be flexed to a primetime matchup on NBC.
I still think he would have been a huge addition to the Kansas City offense, but it’s hard to argue with the character issues. The Chiefs have a good thing going on and off the field with their chemistry and clearly weren’t in a hurry to throw a wrench into that.
