Moss retirement no surprise to Titans
By Paul Kuharsky
Randy Moss’ retirement isn’t a big surprise to anyone who saw him up close during the last half of the 2010 season when he was with the Tennessee Titans.
Tennessee claimed him on waivers from Minnesota, and believed he’d help stretch the field and create room for Chris Johnson. But they quickly stopped trying to use him.
Jeff Fisher and his offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger couldn’t rationalize why, but it became clear they thought he was done. Others who saw him work said he had simply lost the high-end speed that made him such a threat. The Titans have talked of the possibility of adding a veteran receiver, but never so much as considered that guy being Moss.
He wound up with six catches for 80 yards with Tennessee.
As time passes and the highlights run, the lowlight finish will became a faint memory.
