Jeff Fisher open about Randy Moss
ESPN.com news services
INDIANAPOLIS -- New Rams coach Jeff Fisher might be willing to pick up receiver Randy Moss.
After the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings let Moss go in 2010, Fisher took a chance on him while still coaching the Tennessee Titans. Moss did little in Nashville, with six catches and 80 yards in eight games before he retired.
Now, the 35-year-old Moss is looking for work, and Fisher left the door open Friday at the NFL combine.
"There's a number of players out there," Fisher said. "You guys know my familiarity with Randy. I thought he was great for our locker room."
Moss' body of work compares favorably with the best receivers in NFL history. He is tied for second all-time in touchdowns (153), ranks fifth in yards (14,858) and ninth in receptions (954). His record 23 TD catches in 2007 helped the Patriots reach the Super Bowl, and his 10 seasons of at least 1,000 yards are second only to Jerry Rice's 14.
Moss would potentially fill a void for a team whose leading receiver, Brandon Lloyd, had 51 catches for 683 yards last season. The Rams want to keep Lloyd and would like to add pieces to help quarterback Sam Bradford, who missed much of last season with a high left ankle sprain.
