Report: Randy Moss Will Work Out Tomorrow With 49ers
After working out last week with the New Orleans Saints in the hopes of a triumphant return to the NFL, Randy Moss now has another tryout planned. Moss will visit with the San Francisco 49ers tomorrow, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Moss was not seen in the NFL last season. He last played in 2010, a turbulent year in which he was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings, then later shipped to the Tennessee Titans. He finished the season with 393 receiving yards, by far a career low.
The 49ers have a glaring need for the 35-year-old Moss, as their receiving corps looks thinner than ever. The Niners’ wideouts managed just one catch for three years in their NFC title game loss to the New York Giants; now they’re on the verge of losing Joshua Morgan and Ted Ginn Jr. in free agency. They also released Braylon Edwards.
Moss has 153 career touchdown catches, tied with Terrell Owens for second on the NFL’s all-time list. He also ranks fifth in yards (14,858) and ninth in receptions (954).
