Titans Super Bowl Chances: Vastly Enhanced
From contending, to “seriously” contending in the AFC
The Titans have won the lottery. Even more shockingly, they were the only team playing.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that former Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss has been claimed by the Tennessee Titans. The seven-time Pro-Bowl playmaker fell to the Titans on the waiver wire after being released by the Minnesota Vikings after only four games. Quite stunning, considering they were the only team that put in a claim for Moss.
Moss will have the option to report to the Titans, and the Titans will send him a “5 day” letter in which Moss will have to decide whether or not to report to the team. If he chooses to do so, he will be a Titan. If not, Moss will be put on the Reserve/Left squad list and would be out for the remainder of the season.
This seems to be a great fit for Moss, who would open up the Titans offense for Chris Johnson and provide Vince Young his first legitimate deep threat. Defenses would be weary of throwing eight men in the box with one of the most dangerous deep threats in the history of the game on the outside.
So, what will Moss do? Will he be the man who ditched a lackluster team only to be a model citizen with his new one? Or, will Moss decide that he would rather hold personal press conferences and sit out the rest of the season?
