Report Claims Randy Moss Willing to Pass Up Guaranteed Money to Return to NFL

It seems that Randy Moss is so anxious to get back in the NFL, he’s willing to do it without any guaranteed money.

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that Moss’ decision to pass up on instant cash makes him much more attractive to teams that may be willing to take a chance on him.

“This is not about money for him, he wants to play,” the source told Cole. “He’ll want to be paid if he makes the team, but nothing up front. He’s not trying to grab a check.”

Moss came out earlier this month and said he wanted back in the league after not playing at all last season. This after he started 2010 on the Pats, then went to the Vikings in a trade, was released, and wrapped up a quiet season with the Titans.

Reports say he has received interest from two teams, although neither is the New England Patriots, the club that reportedly Moss wants to go back to, and where he had his best ever season in 2007.

“The question with him is all about motivation,” one NFC team executive said in the report. “I’m not all that interested because I like our wide receivers. But if the guy is willing to come in with no guarantees, just a make-good contract, I think that would make some teams more comfortable, no question.”
