Once Super Bowl XLVIII was officially in the books with the Baltimore Ravens getting the best of the San Francisco 49ers, the future of one of the greatest wide receivers to have ever played the game was uncertain to say the least. Randy Moss has indicated a desire to continuing playing in the NFL, but it won't be with the 49ers according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk as of March 2:
It’s unknown where the career of the self-styled greatest receiver to ever play the game will continue.
But it apparently won’t be in San Francisco.
Per a league source, the Niners were making it clear at the Scouting Combine that they intend to steer clear of Moss in 2013.
In 2012, Moss had a decent season for a 36-year-old coming out of retirement. Moss caught 28 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season and had seven receptions for 112 yards throughout the playoffs.
Although not the dominant receiver of old, Moss still poses a threat downfield and will likely get another shot to continue playing in the NFL with another team next season.
The New Orleans Saints may show interest in signing the future Hall of Famer during the off-season. A pairing with superstar quarterback Drew Brees may prove to be an ideal fit for the veteran wide receiver.
