There haven’t been any major developments on the current Second Biggest NFL Story Involving A Loudmouth Wide Receiver (i.e., the Randy Moss trade rumors). The trade talks seem to be on hold until there’s some resolution of whether or not Red McCombs will sell the team, as Red wants to hang onto #84 as his reported asking price for the team continues to approach a billion dollars.
Assuming that’s all resolved, the #1 rumored destination for Moss has been the Baltimore Ravens, where he’d be reunited with his former offensive coordinator Brian Billick, and likely outrun every pitiful pass from Kyle Boller. Especially interested in the prospect of Moss-to-Baltimore is Deion Sanders, the former superstar who returned to the NFL last year and made no impact whatsoever for the Ravens. Deion says he’s likely to return for one more year if the Ravens get Moss, and then there’s this:
Sanders went on to suggest that he and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis would be able to provide a little guidance for the occasionally wayward Moss, who has been dogged by controversy throughout his career.
Wow, that great role models for the impressionable young Moss- the most selfish player in NFL history, and a guy who was up on double-murder charges! Moss, meanwhile, would be balanced on offense with Jamal Lewis- when he gets out of jail, that is, after Lewis was sentenced today to four months for drug trafficking. And you thought Cris Carter was a bad influence.
If Moss ends up in Baltimore, I guess that makes the Avon Barksdale comparison even more trenchant.
