Rumors: Randy Moss and the Eagles, Ravens; Braylon Edwards and the Cardinals; Tiki Barber and the Steelers

Chances of Randy Moss signing with the Eagles? I am guessing Randy Moss is like Braylon Edwards – who supposedly wanted a 5-year deal – and Malcom Floyd – who supposedly wants $5m a year. Moss and/or his agent may not like any deals they are offered. The truth is, if Moss wants to be a star, he will not go to the same team as Mike Vick, Nnamdi Asomugha, Desean Jackson, Cullen Jenkins, Trent Cole, and Jeremy Maclin. Also, Randy Moss got to see Vince Young up close and personal and was there when Vince Young abandoned his team in the locker room (not that Moss didn’t have his own locker room incident with some food he may or may not have said he wouldn’t feed to his dog).  26%

Chances of Randy Moss signing with the Ravens? I think the Ravens have the kind of culture that would remind him of New England. It’s not quite as raucous as the one the Jets are propagating. I think Randy would definitely play here if it wasn’t about the money. It would be the teaming of the two owners of every rookie receiving record of substance (Moss has the TD record, Boldin has the receptions and yards records). I do think money weighs in and the Ravens will just miss out. 27%

Chance of Braylon Edwards signing with the Cardinals? There don’t seem to be many teams in pursuit. Another ex-Jet, Big Red safety Kerry Rhodes, has been pushing for his signing. With the addition of Todd Heap, this is kind of an “all-in” year. There’s always the potential that the Cardinals will get tired of negotiating, as the other teams did. 88%

Chance of Tiki Barber signing with the Steelers? I saw the Twitter rumors but no credible reporter has claimed Pittsburgh has real interest. Barber’s best bet will be an injury in training camp or preseason. With the new practice rules, I don’t know if one will end up hurt in camp but it’s always a possibility. Pittsburgh is just fine at running back. He may need to wait until a back on some other team gets hurt during the season, where they would like someone who’s been “the guy” to be carrying the ball in important games. 9%

    Randy would thrive in either Philly or Baltimore. I’m excited to see where he lands. He still has game left in the tank.

    Reading the post, it’s funny how loaded the Eagles are, that we forget to mention LeSean McCoy! Super Bowl or bust. McCoy is a premiere back being overshadowed by flashier names. I see a big year again for the former Pitt Panther. Forget DeSean, they have LeSean!
