Report: Jets No Longer Interested In Randy Moss
Free agent wide receiver Randy Moss is looking for a job — but sources tell ESPN New York that while the New York Jets pursued the veteran last year, they’re no longer interested in him in 2012.
The Jets went after Moss last year as a replacement for Braylon Edwards, who left New York for San Francisco in 2011; Moss said no. Now Moss is coming out of retirement, and the Jets could still use a fast wideout option opposite Santonio Holmes, but ESPN’s Rich Cimini says there’s zero interest from the Jets.
Cimini did, however, hear one endorsement of Moss from Chad Pennington, a former Jets quarterback and also former teammate of Moss at Marshall.
“He’s a phenomenal athlete,” Pennington said. “Randy Moss at 35 is better than most at 25 to 28 years of age. In addition, on top of that, he wants to prove people wrong and prove he can be special again.”
