I understand that a lot of people are skeptical about Randy Moss, who has somehow emerged as the sanest of all the aging wide receivers who figure to be on the open market once the NFL lockout lifts and there's actually an open market again. But as a St. Louis Rams fan who is open, if not enthusiastic, about the team targeting a veteran wide receiver to join its cavalcade of young, flawed, and interesting talent at the position, allow me this one endorsement of Randy Moss: He's not Plaxico Burress.â†µ
Randy Moss has never been in prison, although Joe Buck might have advocated for it following his simulated mooning of national television; in his prime, which showed up again relatively recently, he was not just a fine wide receiver but one of the greatest in the history of football.
While the Burress circus swirls around a barren NFL news landscape, a suggestion for Moss, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, and the rest of the sub-crazy wide receivers looking for one last score before retirement: Take this time to appear especially sane. There's no better time.â†µ
