Will the Titans pursue Randy Moss?
Titans coach Jeff Fisher said Monday the Titans would at least entertain the possibility.
The Minnesota Vikings did not officially release the talented receiver they acquired just a few weeks ago on Monday, but reports emerged that Moss' second stint in Minnesota is over and that his being released is merely a formality.
Titans players Chris Johnson and Michael Griffin both tweeted that they wanted Moss in Tennessee. Johnson had made a similar statement to the media, wishing the Titans had made a move for Moss when the New England Patriots dealt him to the Vikings last month.
“I bet every player in the building would come in my back door and say, ‘Go get him, go get him,'” Fisher said when asked about the players' interest in acquiring the controversial wideout.
In saying Moss would be discussed, Fisher said, “We may have a 30-second conversation or we might go to the midnight hour tonight."
Fisher tempered his remarks further, adding, “I didn’t say we’re going to bring him in. I would venture to say that every head coach or maybe 30 head coaches in this league are having discussions about it right now.”
The Titans had the chance to draft Moss in the 1998 draft, but bypassed him in favor of Kevin Dyson, because of character issues and concerns with Moss.
In the short-term Moss took the league by storm and became a superstar, but eventually wore out his welcome the first time with the Vikings and was traded to Oakland. When it didn't work out there, Moss was acquired by New England for a fourth-round pick and regained his superstar status with the Pats, until they dealt him back to Minnesota near the trade deadline for a third-round choice.
