    Would Randy Moss fit in San Diego?
    July, 18, 2011
    By Bill Williamson


    I received several inquiries from San Diego Chargers fans since the agent of free-agent receiver Randy Moss said his client is poised for a big year in 2011 at the age of 34. This after a tumultuous 2010 season in which Moss’ numbers declined sharply as he played for three teams.

    Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of Moss landing in San Diego:

    Pros

    He may be needed: There have been reports that No. 2 receiver Malcom Floyd will likely leave as a free agent, and there is still a possibility franchised receiver Vincent Jackson could be unrestricted, although that is unlikely. There have been reports the Chargers could pursue Carolina veteran receiver Steve Smith through a trade. Getting Moss as a free agent would be easier, and Moss could be a fairly inexpensive short-term answer.

    He’d fit well with Philip Rivers: Rivers throws perhaps the NFL’s prettiest and best deep ball. Going vertical is Moss’ game. Moss is tall and fast, just the way the Chargers like their receivers. I think Rivers would be excited to throw to Moss (who played for San Diego coach Norv Turner in Oakland in 2005) for a season, as the Chargers try to cash in on their talent and advance to the Super Bowl.

    Cons

    He’s not an A.J. Smith-type player: San Diego general manager A.J. Smith usually stays away from players with reputations for being difficult. The Chargers have declined opportunities to pursue Moss in the past. Smith may again deem bringing in Moss as unbeneficial.

    Chargers have a good locker room: The Chargers have a good, veteran-based team with solid chemistry. Bringing in a player with Moss’ past as a sometimes disruptive presence in the locker room may be frowned upon in the organization.

    Conclusion: I think Moss, if he is not declining and if he is on his best behavior, could help a contender like San Diego. He’d make a potent offense even more dangerous, and Rivers would get him the ball. But, in the end, I think San Diego will stick to its course and not take a risky move like bringing in Moss, although there could be some temptation.

    Not only no but oh hell no

    A selfish self-aggrandizing punk whose talents can no longer cover for his poor attitude and work ethic. He got thrown out of both New England and Minnesota, why on earth would he be brought here?

    After I posted, I realized that he meant explosive talent. For some reason, I was thinking he meant a head case like Moss. DOH!
