Now let me be clear here, based on Gene Smith's player evaluation record, I think it is highly unlikely that Moss will land with the Jaguars. However, I can't help but think that Moss would be at the very least an intriguing part of a wide receivers corp that's going to go through a complete face lift. Read the ESPN report here.

Randy could be a tone-setter for the Jags in terms of commitment and a veteran voice in the locker room, providing guidance to the younger players, more specifically to receivers taken in the draft. Especially if expectations are true and several new free agents are added to the team like last year, signing a player who would have a calming, veteran presence and play for no guaranteed money unless he produces can't be labeled as too risky even for Smith, who we all know doesn't exactly like to rock the boat with signings of talented but immature or petulant players. Yes, Moss will get interest from many other teams as well because of the low financial risk associated with the adding of a sure-fire HOF'er to the roster. Let's also not forget that IF he makes the 53 man roster, then he will receive a payday of around $4 million, but to get to that point in the season he would have to show that he can still play at a high level. I believe that he could be a great addition to our team, and if he cannot prove himself during the OTA's and training camp, then the Jags are no worse for the wear financially, but if he can thrive and Smith doesn't take a chance on him, then how many articles will we read in the papers about Moss' break out year, and think that he could have been working his magic in sunny old Jax.
