Don’t rule out Randy Moss to the Jets

Last month, comments from Jets coach Rex Ryan regarding free-agent-to-be Randy Moss sparked speculation that the Jets will pursue Moss, currently property of the Titans, once he hits the market. In response, the Jets quickly mobilized, presumably putting out the word via off-the-record communications that they’re not interested in Moss.

We continue to hear that, in reality, they are.

During a recent episode of PFT Live, we gave Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum a chance to declare that the team has no interest in Moss, and Tannenbaum didn’t.

Since then, we’ve been told that the Jets remain a viable destination for Moss. Though the chatter could be aimed merely at squeezing Braylon Edwards and/or Santonio Holmes into accepting whatever offers the Jets make, it’s also entirely possible that coach Rex Ryan believes he can coax Moss to have the same kind of career resurrection that he demonstrated four years ago, when after presumably being washed up in Oakland he authored one of the greatest single seasons for a receiver of all time.
