A league source tells FOX 8 Sports that the Saints will work out wide receiver Randy Moss very soon.
NFL Insider Jay Glazer confirms that Randy Moss will be working out for the New Orleans Saints tomorrow, Tuesday, March 6th.
Glazer also confirms that Former Packers QB Brian Brohm will also be coming in to throw to him.
With wide receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem becoming free agents a lot of teams will be looking at the two players should the New Orleans Saints not be able to re-sign them.
With San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson the only big named target besides Marques Colston due to played like Kansas City Chiefs wide-out Dwayne Bowe being franchised tagged, there’s a limited amount of quality receivers hitting the market.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is due to become a free agent but he is likely to go wherever quarterback Peyton Manning lands.
With the New Orleans Saints possibly needing to replace both Colston and Meachem or just one of them, the Saints are clearly willing to look around the league at possible replacements.
Last season a rumor surfaced that Randy Moss had payed a visit to the New Orleans Saints facility, however the rumors turned out to be false.
A few weeks ago retired wide receiver Randy Moss had said that he would like to make a return to the NFL and he would be willing to take little guaranteed money and he would be willing to earn his pay based on performance.
Moss, who retired after the 2010 season where he played for three teams; the New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, and Tennessee Titans.
Moss had the worst stat line of his storied career with 28 catches for 393 yards and five touchdowns.
Previously, with the New England Patriots, Moss had three consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons which included 47 touchdowns, the most in the NFL during that three year span.
Moss is a future Hall of Fame receiver who has over 14,000 receiving yards in his career, 153 touchdowns, and seven Pro Bowl appearances.
At the age of 35 Moss had previously told Heath Evans of the NFL Network that he can currently run a 4.35 to 4.38 forty yard dash.
If this is true, Moss, could potentially be a huge target for the Saints, and a legit deep threat with size, something the New Orleans Saints really don’t have.
It is essentially a no-risk/high reward situation.
The Saints could sign him to a one year contract and cut him if he doesn’t perform well in training camp or during the season.
If it does work out, he could be a nightmare for defenses around the league due to his size, speed, hands, and ability to out jump opponents.
The only defender that has been able to shut down Randy Moss when he puts effort forward has been Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets.
Moss would open up the Saints passing game even more with his deep play ability which would force safeties to be more hesitant on double teaming others, should Moss give it his all.
Everyone saw what Moss did just a few years ago with the Patriots and Tom Brady.
Just imagine what could happen again with the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees.
