The folks at the Boston Herald have supplied the football-following globe a couple of new tidbits concerning lately-retired receiver Randy Moss.
1 is very interesting. The other 1, frankly, isn’t.
1st, Karen Guregian of the Herald reports that the Eagles made an offer you to Moss following his retirement. That is a large one, given that we’re convinced the Eagles are 1 of the couple of teams for which Moss would play. Without having realizing the amount of the supply or the Eagles’ plans for Moss, it’s tough to know whether he’d be interested.
Second, Ian Rapoport of the Herald reports that Moss has filed his retirement papers. “His career is over,” Rapoport writes.
Although we’re not inclined to publicly disagree with any Herald scribe not named Ron Borges, the filing of retirement papers has no connection whatsoever to the prospective continuation of a player’s career. Brett Favre filed his retirement papers in 2008. And all he had to do to return was to send a letter saying, “I want to play.”
So, to borrow from the phrase that will make its way onto Randy’s football tombstone, Moss will unretire when he wants to unretire.
If he wants to unretire.
Thus, the timing of the Eagles’ offer you is irrelevant. The question is whether or not the Eagles can get his attention. At least we know they’re on his radar screen.
