Will Randy Moss head back to the Oakland Raiders?

Over the past decade or so, the Oakland Raiders have been arguably one of the worst teams in the NFL with little or no hope for the future. A few years ago, the Raiders made a deal to bring in one of the best wide receivers of all-time in Randy Moss. With Moss basically being in his prime before arriving in Oakland, the Raiders thought they may have found the wide receiver to replace Hall of Famer Tim Brown, but they were wrong as the acquisition turned out to be an absolute nightmare.

Not only did Randy Moss have career lows in almost all categories while in Oakland, but he tore the team to pieces and basically forced the trade to the New England Patriots. Once with the Patriots, Moss broke all sorts of records and became Tom Brady’s favorite target in the New England offense.

Now Randy Moss has jumped around a bit as he was with three different teams last season (New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans), but reportedly the future Hall of Famer is in the best shape of his life and will become a free agent once the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) gets the go ahead.

With that being said, there are a few teams interested in the veteran wide receiver like the New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Oakland Raiders might also be interested in signing him to a short term deal.

Last season was a breath of fresh air for the Oakland Raiders as they saw their first successful season in years, but they were sorely lacking at wide receiver and the addition of Randy Moss once again might be just what this team needs to dominant in the passing game as well as the running game.
