Titans claim Moss off waivers
Titans claim Randy Moss
The Tennessee Titans have claimed former Minnesota Vikings recevier Randy Moss, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. If Moss does not report to the Titans, Tennessee will send him a "5-day" letter and at the end of that five days, they have the right to put him on the Reserve/Left Squad list. He would be out for the remainder of the season once the club takes that action. Moss' status for next year would be determined by terms of the new collective bargaining agreement.
Titans claim WR Moss of waivers
The Tennessee Titans have been awarded wide receiver Randy Moos off waivers, according to NFL Network's Michael Lombardi. The Titans were the only team to put in a claim for Moss, according to Lombardi. Tennessee is on a bye this week, meaning Moss is likely to hit the field for the Titans in Week 10 when they travel to Miami. The Titans will pick up the remaining $3 million on Moss' salary for this season. Moss was released by the Vikings Tuesday, just four weeks after they acquired the six-time Pro Bowler from the Patriots in exchange for a 2011 third-round pick. The Viking also received a seventh-round pick in 2012 in the deal. In four games for the Vikings, he had 13 receptions for 174 yards and two touchdowns. Moss' behavior both in the locker room and after Sunday's loss at New England was reportedly a key factor in Viking coach Brad Childress' decision to release Moss. Moss' actions during a Friday locker-room buffet last week reportedly upset some teammates, including quarterback Brett Favre.
