Despite reaching the Super Bowl last year, the San Francisco 49ers have plenty of questions to answer when it comes to preparing for the 2013 season. One of the team’s biggest questions on offense–whether or not to bring back wide receiver Randy Moss.
The potential Hall of Fame wideout seems like he’s ready to give it one more shot in 2013, but when looking at his numbers from the regular season–Moss wasn’t nearly as impressive as he used to be. For a player like Moss to catch just 28 passes for 434 yards with three touchdowns, it’s difficult to know if it would even be worth bringing him back for another season.
Plus, when looking at his performance from Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens–there has to be some part of the 49ers frustrated with the way Moss performed in the game. There were numerous plays throughout the game where Moss appeared to have given up certain routes which cost San Francisco big plays and considering his work ethic has been questioned before–this doesn’t help his case much at all.
If anything, the 49ers realize their passing game would be just fine without Moss–so it should be interesting to see what they decide on doing over the next couple of weeks. At this point, it seems highly unlikely they would be willing to give Moss a shot, but then again–nobody expected them to bring him on board for the 2012 season either.
