NFL Free Agency Rumor: Jets Linked To Randy Moss

The New York Jets may consider signing free-agent wide receiver Randy Moss, according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network. The 34-year-old Moss is the NFL’s active leader in career touchdown receptions (153), but struggled through a 2010 campaign split between the New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, and Tennessee Titans, catching just 28 passes in 16 games.

However, Moss could prove useful for New York, which needs another receiver to complement the re-signed Santonio Holmes now that Braylon Edwards is likely out of its price range. And before dismissing the idea of Moss suiting up for the Jets, consider that team owner Woody Johnson told in May that Moss “has the God-given talent to be a superstar [….] I admire his skill and what he’s accomplished during those years.”

In two seasons under coach Rex Ryan, the Jets have struggled with their passing offense, instead using a power running game and strong defense to accumulate a 20-12 record over that span. The Jets ranked 23rd in passing touchdowns and 22nd in passing yards in 2010.
