That's like saying buying a 250 year-old French Quarter townhome is a good buy so long as it has no structural problems and you can pay less than $250,000 for it.

If that's what you want, get it, but don't expect unreasonable things.

Moss is a human being. He's been through the ringer for the last 3-4 years because of his antics. The last full season anyone saw this guy play, he set & still holds the NFL records. There is not an NFL CB that can cover this guy when he's giving effort. I think this is an oppurtunity for Moss to get redemption for his past. I say go with it if he's cheap. I think he wants to change his appearance in the public eye & show what caliber of an athlete he still is. Besides......do you really think Meachem or Devery are even in the same hemisphere of Moss? If you do, you are kidding yourself. Mr. Loomis, get Brees this weapon.....even if only for one year.

Well I think the question here is "is this that Randy Moss?"

My gut says the 2012 version of Moss is a shadow of his former self.

Just because he was great 3 or 4 years ago doesn't mean he still is now.

If he's still what we saw in 2010, then YES, Meachem and Henderson are definitely better options than Randy Moss, no doubt about it.

"4.39 to 4.42 forty time", "ran precise routes", "caught everything thrown his way", "looked physically in great shape", "wowed everyone there". Now.....I'd say that sounds like the old Randy. That said, Randy Moss on his worst day is still a better WR than Meachem or Devery on their best days. That's fact.....even at 35! That said......he's cheap, has excellent hands, is 6'4", & is fast. Oh yeah.....he's also one of the best WR's of all time. Why not take a shot at him? If he shows signs of "prima donna" behavior, you simply cut him.....end of story. It's not like you broke the bank for him.

Also.....I know people will probably break out the pitchforks on this, but he also doesn't drop catchable balls, like Colston. I love Colston, but truth is truth. Look at it this way.......Marques Colston for $8-9 million/yr. or Randy Moss for $1 million/ year. Uhmmm.......I'll take Randy & use the leftover money on defense where we really need it.

I honestly could not disagree more with this statement.

You and I frequently agree, but we are polar opposites on this one my friend.

I'll make it simple...... neither Devery or Meachem have had a 1,000 yd. receiving season in their entire careers. Neither have had a double digit TD season either. Moss, on the other hand, has averaged over 1,100 yds. a season & nearly 12 TD's a season for the past 13 years. That's also averaging his 2006 & 2010 seasons where he didn't put up any stats.

People can hate the guy all they want, but the fact remains......Randy Moss is one of the most prolific WR's of all time. Take that into account, the fact that he is so hungry for a ring, & the fact that he physically "still has it." You may disagree for personal reasons or whatever, but there is no doubt that Moss is a better player than Meachem or Henderson on any given day.

P.S. - Randy's worst season is on par with either Devery or Meachem's career averages.
