The San Francisco 49ers have made it clear they have no intention of bringing Randy Moss back for the 2013 season and while there hasn’t been a set decision on what his plans are for next year–there may be a few teams that would at least consider bringing the wideout on board. As crazy as it sounds, one team that may want to consider bringing him back–the New England Patriots.
If last season is any indication, the Patriots could certainly use help when it comes to having a deep threat in the passing game and while Moss has been on the decline over the last couple of years, some of the best years of his career came as a member of New England. The Patriots already have one of the top passing units on paper consisting of Wes Welker (hopefully), Brandon Lloyd, Rob Gronkowski, and Aaron Hernandez–so the addition of Moss could make them even more dangerous.
Of course, the main factor with this situation would be whether or not Moss could return to his old dominant level. For a player that has the potential to be in the Hall of Fame when he does decide to call it a career for good, Moss has been criticized numerous times throughout his career for his work ethic and unfortunately–there were numerous plays in Super Bowl XLVII where it looked like he gave up on certain plays as well.
If Moss really wanted to end his career by winning the Super Bowl, a return to the Patriots may be his best shot in 2013–that is if they were willing to consider bringing him back.
