Report: Titans put in claim for Randy Moss

Posted by Mike Florio on November 3, 2010 3:29 PM ET

Any team sitting at No. 23 or lower on the waiver priority list can fuhgetabout getting Randy Moss.

According to Don Banks of SI.com, the Titans have submitted a claim for Moss' contract. Since they are No. 22 on the list, they trump the 10 teams beneath them on the list.

The Titans will get Moss only if none of the 21 teams ahead of Tennessee put in a claim.

In 1998, Moss was the 21st pick in the first round of the draft. It'll be interesting to see if he carries the same chip on his shoulder this time around as to anyone who doesn't claim him.

Nah, with Kenny Britt on the shelf, possibly for a long time, it makes sense. I think Fisher would be an appealing coach to play for, if I'm Moss. The question is what will Moss bring to the table, a lazy and nonchalant attitude, or a fire (if he even has that inside him at all anymore).

****BREAKING UPDATE****

The Tennessee Titans have claimed former Minnesota Vikings recevier Randy Moss, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

If Moss does not report to the Titans, Tennessee will send him a "5-day" letter and at the end of that five days, they have the right to put him on the Reserve/Left Squad list. He would be out for the remainder of the season once the club takes that action. Moss' status for next year would be determined by terms of the new collective bargaining agreement

Once again, why have I not read the news of his release?

They'd better just be waiting for the work week to resume.

Moss has always been a problem teammate. i don't know if it's because he smokes too much pot and has lost interest (ala Ricky Williams), or because he's just a jerk (ala Keyshawn, TO, Jeff George, etc.), but this article shows a little bit of insight into why his act in Minnesota (the 2nd time around) wore thin so quickly.

Moss first raised some eyebrows in the Vikings locker room last Friday when he berated a caterer who brought in food for the team after practice.

"I wouldn't do it," Brett Favre(notes) said. "I was sitting in my locker eating the food. I thought it was pretty good."

As is the team’s custom on Fridays, a local food establishment was invited to the training facility to serve a catered, post-practice meal in the locker room. In this case, a St. Paul restaurant that is a favorite of former Vikings center Matt Birk(notes). As the proprietors helped serve chicken, ribs, pasta and other dishes to Vikings players, Moss paced up and down the serving line and loudly expressed his displeasure with the offerings.

According to one player who witnessed the scene, Moss yelled, “What the [expletive]? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn’t feed this to my dog!”

Said the witness: “It was brutal. The truth is, he deserved to be cut after that. It was such an uncomfortable moment. You know that feeling where you just can tell someone feels so small? That’s what it was like being there.

“This wasn’t a chain – it was a mom-and-pop restaurant, and you could tell it was their best stuff. They had a special carving station set up, and there were players and other support staff lining up to eat it. And [Moss] is at his locker saying, ‘You know, I used to have to eat that crap – but now I’ve got money.’ You just felt so sad for them. I had never seen anyone treated like that.

“And by the way, the food was actually really good.”

I used to like Randy Moss and would defend him, but I lost a lot of respect for him when I heard how he berated that caterer and that it's not the first time something like that has happened.

The Titans are going to be sick.

Kenny Britt, Randy Moss, Chris Johnson, Bo Scaife.

Yikes.
