League sources tell sportsNOLA.com that Moss had an off-the-charts workout at the Saints facility this morning.

The 35-year old Moss reportedly perfomed the 40-yard dash in the 4.39 to 4.4 range and ran routes while hauling in nearly 50 passes. One source described Moss as being more impressive than anticipated, saying that he is in great shape.

Moss spoke with Saints officials, including Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton, after the workout and both sides were encouraging to one another. The sources confirm that there is a strong chance of the two sides coming together on a deal that would make Moss a Saint in 2012.


Randy Moss impresses Saints in workout
WWL and other sources said he did not run the 40 this morning - that statement by SportsNOLA.com is false.

There was also a statement that surfaced (I noticed my Editor at WhoDatDish said it also) that the Saints were going to offer Moss a contract in the coming days.

I just spoke to Kevin Spain of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He has informed me at this time there has been no verification that the New Orleans Saints have intent to offer WR Randy Moss a contract in the coming days.

I have no doubt Randy Moss is in great shape and has prepared himself for off-season workouts. I'm not surprised he can run routes and catch passes in a workout setting as good as anyone in the league...
But, he's 35. If I could make a living playing flag football, I would play till I was 50, but when 200lb 20yr olds are hitting you at full speed, somewhere around early to mid 30's the human body doesn't tolerate that kind of punishment to allow you to maintain a high level of play from week to week.
I keep thinking about Jerry Rice, he got in few good years after age 35, maybe Randy can too, but the odds tell us that that's the exception and not the rule.
I'd rather take a chance on a younger player than roll the dice with an aging superstar with a potential diva attitude.

After reading all of comments I lean toward bringing the guy in here. Must be the team knows the probable fate of Colston or Meachem otherewise why bother. But if we were not to lose one or more of our recievers I see no point in it.

SportsNOLA.com reports there is a "strong chance" of free agent Randy Moss signing with the Saints after Tuesday's impressive workout.

In "great shape," Moss reportedly touched base with Saints GM Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton after the "off-the-charts" workout. "Both sides were encouraging to one another," according to sportsNOLA.com, after Moss clearly exceeded expectations. With Marques Colston and Robert Meachem threatening to leave free agency, the Saints appear to be in the driver's seat for Moss.

Maybe Randy hasn't aged like a normal player... because of all the plays he took off, his body might only be 29 years old in football years

Hey, if Kenny Chesney is worth a training camp invite, then there's nothing wrong with working out Moss. Right?

I think most would agree Moss is not a bad player,not even at his age. But his emo brakedowns have killed the teams he was in ... Just picture this : Since his forte is the 9 , he would be a 3rd read for the qb,past the shallow route 1st and 2nd receiver .The qb reads 1,passes to 2 cause he was opened and safer than a long pass to Moss . Moss comes back in the huddle and starts yelling : give me the ball ! give me the ball! give me the ball ! . Thats Randy Moss .
