Should Moss be growing on the Cardinals coaches?

The Arizona Cardinals missed out on signing both Braylon Edwards and Malcolm Floyd, but there is still a dynamic playmaker without a team.

And, former Cardinal-turned-NFL Network-analyst Kurt Warner says the team should go get him.

“I still think there’s something in the tank for Randy,” Warner said. “The one thing that you know is he has a great relationship with Larry Fitzgerald, that could be a huge plus coming to this organization.

“I think a deep threat is something that they need, they need somebody that can stretch the field.”

Yes, when Warner says “Randy” he’s talking about none other than the recently-retired Randy Moss. And no, Warner did not suffer another concussion just before joining Sports 620 KTAR’s Burns and Gambo Friday afternoon when he made the statement.

It makes sense on some levels. Assuming he won’t stay retired for long, Moss could very well walk onto a field and be one of the best players on it. He’s just one season removed from an 83 catch, 13 touchdown campaign with New England, and has a career average of 15.6 yards per catch.

Then again, this is the same Randy Moss who played for three different teams last season, tallying just 28 catches for 393 yards, scoring just five times on the year. Those numbers didn’t help the teams he played for, and a certain writer’s fantasy football team was hurt by them, too.

Anyway, as an idea Randy Moss to Arizona sounds good. But remembering the fact that nobody really wanted him last season, and he retired because nobody wants him now, you have to believe there’s a legitimate reason as to why.
