Whether or not the Minnesota Vikings do end up placing Randy Moss on waivers, the possible moves have plenty of teams discussing whether or not they should make a move to claim him—and one of those teams who should considering the move is the Carolina Panthers.
At 1-5, the Panthers only sit behind the Buffalo Bills on the waiver list this week and own the league’s 30th ranked passing game, averaging just 165.9 yards per game through the air. While their main issue on offense is at quarterback, Carolina could use an experienced like Moss.
Other than Steve Smith, the next best wideouts for the Panthers are David Gettis and Brandon LaFell—both rookies. The addition of a player who poses as much of a threat as Moss would be beneficial to Smith—who has yet to cross 100+ receiving yards this season—and the rest of Carolina’s passing game.
Of course, if this happens, the Panthers would have to pay the $3.88 million still owed to Moss for the rest of the 2010 season. While it seems unlikely he’ll want to play for a team like the Panthers in 2011, it may not be a bad idea for Carolina to consider.
Who knows—maybe adding a player like Moss is just what the Panthers need to get some consistency flowing on offense.
