    Default RUMOR: Moss spotted in Anderson this morning

    Again, just a rumor, but someone posted over at coltpower.com that they saw Moss in Anderson this morning. Could be total BS but Phil B. from Indystar has been informed and is checking it out today.

    Ya i wouldn't be against bringing him into camp if he would do it. We have some money, could use another possible playmaker, even if he doesn't end up doing anything, you can easily cut him.

    I'm not buying until it shows up on Irsay's Twitter feed.

    I would be 100% for this.

    We have a rock-solid culture here. There is nothing this fool could do that would jeopardize that. The first time he did something stupid would be the last as we would cut him immediately.

    If he has any game left and was committed then it could work. He cares about his legacy and numbers like any other athlete. What better way to pump up your numbers at the end of your career than with Peyton Manning throwing you the ball? I think he would buy into it at least initially. Sure it could sour as time goes on and if it did then you just get rid of him like NE did and be done with it.

    Honestly, I don't see what we'd have to lose. If he's a jackass then you just cut him and move on. It's not like he's so poisonous that he's going to ruin the team. NE went out without him just fine. Minny's problems went much deeper than Moss.

    Won't happen though, sadly.

    If he is coming back, it would be with a team with a franchise QB like Peyton.

    I read the Niners, but I really don't think he wants to play with Alex Smith who has yet to be a proven QB in this league.

    I don't know. I don't get the Niners at all. They have really good pieces to be a really good team, but they haven't shown. Maybe Jim Harbaugh will turn it around because Mike Singletary really blew it.

    I think Moss definitely has some game left and it's a shame if he never plays again.

    Moss had 13 TD's and over 1200 yards two years ago. Last year, he had 3 TD's in his first 3 games with the Pats before being shipped. He went to Minny where he was obviously a jackass, but that place was a sinking ship with or without him. He managed to snag a couple TD's there too. Finally, he went to the rotting Titans where he clearly had no interest in busting his butt.

    He might not be capable of snagging 23 touchdown again, but the dude could easily still be one of the best receivers in the league.......especially if Manning is throwing him the ball. I don't see any reason why he couldn't have a repeat of his 08/09 New England seasons.

    Moss wants a ring. Moss wants to keep padding his career stats. He would play to his potential here. There would at least be a honeymoon period.

    For what it's worth, he's only a year and 9 months older than Wayne, though he has a decent amount more miles on him.

    I'd be beyond shocked if we did it, but I'd love to see it. Like I said, it's a low risk/high reward thing. If he's a moron then you cut him and move on. We have a rock-solid culture here and there is no way he could poison the well. He'd be a goner the first time he messed up.

    I really don't see why anyone wouldn't want to at least try it. It's a low risk/high reward thing. If he's an idiot then you cut him and be done with it. Randy Moss isn't powerful enough to ruin the entire established culture of our team.

    I think there is a strong chance he'd have his act together if he was playing with Manning.

    I think there's like a 0.0000001% chance it happens, but I would easily be on board if it did.

    Just like the Lakers taking on Ron Artest, of course you do it. All. Day. Long. You get at least a year honeymoon period with Manning throw to the best deep threat he's ever had. You have the Super Bowl in Indy this year. Abso-freakin'-lutely. If the chance is there you have to take it.

    Bears have 18m+ in cap room pay the man 4-5m dollars please Jerry Angelo use the rest on the Oline.

    I cant believe Braylon Edwards only got 3.5m the Bears should of gave him 5m. This is frustrating for me as a Bears fan if true.

    Agreed. The chance it works is high enough that you have to take the risk, I think. If it did work then....wow...

    You can't go by last season when evaluating his play. He clearly wasn't happy in Minny or Tennessee so he pouted. But in his last normal season, 2009, he was a pro-bowl receiver.

    I think the honeymoon here would be similar to the one he had in New England. He wold respect our culture and would have tremendous respect for Manning like he did Brady. Didn't he only get pissy in NE because he was irritated about his contract situation? Even after last season, he still had nothing but high praise for Belichick, Brady, and the Pats.

    I don't believe for a second that he really wants to retire right now. He knows he still has a bit of game left and he'd jump at the opportunity to come here. He'd have a chance at a SB and would get his 1000 receptions.

    If Dungy were here I'd be more open to it

    But Caldwell is the coach and he barely makes a positive impression here now I can't imagine how little Randy Moss would think of him.

    And the Ron Artest example is the same I thought the Lakers were morons for taking him yes it worked out that one year(and they're screwed now since Ron has checked out) but Phil Jackson was coach he's used to dealing with headcases and divas. And its L.A. they can handle trainwrecks.

    Indianapolis? Not so much.

    I just don't think at the present time he's worth it.

    Of course since I don't see it happening its all moot

    I don't know if you're joking or not, but just like the Pacers board is a place where we discuss the whole NBA, the Colts board is a place to talk the whole NFL.
