Report: Moss 'willing to sit out season'

Boston Herald writer Ian R. Rapoport, citing a source close to Randy Moss, reports the receiver is willing to sit out the remainder of the season if an unattractive team claims him Wednesday.

The Minnesota Vikings waived Moss on Tuesday. Clubs can submit a claim for him in reverse order of their records, with the winless Buffalo Bills holding top priority and the 6-1 New England Patriots at the back of the line.

Moss' only NFL options if he gets claimed would be to play for his new employer or refuse to report. Maybe he would reunite with former coach Dennis Green and quarterback Daunte Culpepper with Sacramento of the UFL (I write half-jokingly).

Moss would be free to sign anywhere in the NFL only if none of the 32 teams submits a waiver claim.

The source told Rapoport that Moss "wants a ring" and is "willing to sit out the season."

So unless the Bills want to be publicly embarrassed -- hey, Jim Kelly and Tom Cousineau famously refused to show up in Orchard Park and chose to play in other leagues -- they probably should pass on Moss.

Dolphins, Bills not interested one bit in Vick

Scratch the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills off the list of possible landing spots for Michael Vick.

A league source has informed me the Dolphins have absolutely no interest in signing the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback.

Bills chief operating officer Russ Brandon gave Buffalo News reporter Rodney McKissic a similar comment.

"We wouldn't have any interest at this time," Brandon said. "We're comfortable with our roster as it stands right now."

Speculation had flickered that Buffalo could be a possible setting for Vick's return because receiver Terrell Owens, cornerback Drayton Florence and safety George Wilson, the NFL Players Association team representative, expressed over the past couple of days a desire to play with him.

Former NFL coach Dennis Green, now with San Francisco of the United Football League, predicted a month ago that Vick would join the Dolphins.

"I have a hard time believing that Michael Vick is not going to wind up with [Dolphins football operations boss] Bill Parcells, simply because he has that creativeness that says that no matter what it takes, he's going to find a way to get Michael Vick," Green said.

"Now, whether it means convincing the commissioner or whatever it takes, Michael Vick is probably going to wind up at Miami because of the fact that Bill Parcells is Bill Parcells."

So much for Green being crowned the next Nostradamus.

The Dolphins said they weren't interested before the draft and then became even less inclined by drafting West Virginia quarterback Pat White, a discount Vick, in the second round.

Last week, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson ruled out any chance of pursuing Vick.

"No, there's no interest that we have," Johnson said. "We've got Kellen Clemens, and now we have the young Mark Sanchez. I think we're good on quarterbacks."

Vick to the Dolphins? One coach thinks so

Dennis Green believes the Miami Dolphins will sign Michael Vick.

Green, the former NFL coach now working for San Francisco of the startup United Football League, spoke with Sirius NFL Radio on Monday and made a bold observation about the quarterback.

"I have a hard time believing that Michael Vick is not going to wind up with Bill Parcells, simply because he has that creativeness that says that no matter what it takes, he's going to find a way to get Michael Vick," Green said.

"Now, whether it means convincing the commissioner or whatever it takes, Michael Vick is probably going to wind up at Miami because of the fact that Bill Parcells is Bill Parcells."

Rumors of Vick joining the Dolphins circulate because they ushered in the Wildcat fad last year, and many want to see how Vick performs in such an offense. He always has been dangerous on the run, though his arm is limited.

But Vick to the Dolphins -- despite Green's prediction -- is a long shot.

Vick still must be cleared to play by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Vick was convicted on federal charges for his role in a dogfighting operation.

Goodell hasn't met with Vick and recently said he doesn't intend to until Vick is released from home confinement on July 20.

Even if Goodell met with him that day and cleared him -- virtually impossible -- would the Dolphins add such a polarizing figure into their locker room 10 days before training camp starts? Vick wouldn't be playing quarterback instead of Chad Pennington, so could Vick knock off that prison rust and learn a new position in such a short amount of time and be a significant contributor?

Doesn't sound worth the considerable risk for a niche player.

Besides, adding Vick would go against what Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said April 3, when I asked if they would be any interest in Vick.

"I would say that we don't [have interest in Vick] right now," Ireland said in the only statement anybody connected with the Dolphins front office has made about Vick. "We have three terrific quarterbacks on our roster, and I'm not really interested in going after Michael.

"I don't want to comment further than that. He's still a player on someone else's roster, so I'm not going to go any further than that."

Since then, the Dolphins drafted West Virginia quarterback Pat White in the second round because of what he adds as a Wildcat player.

I don't see Vick going to the Dolphins.
