With the way things turned out last year, it was no surprise to hear the San Francisco 49ers planning on parting ways with wide receiver Randy Moss after just one season. The 49ers took a risk when they brought Moss back from retirement to play during the 2012 season and even though they plan on moving on from the potential Hall of Fame wideout, should they re-think their decision and consider giving him one final shot?
Moss has already indicated he would love to play for a contender next season, but that was his situation with the 49ers as they fell to the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. If San Francisco could figure out a way to help Moss return to his old dominant level, there’s no reason why he couldn’t make an impact for the 2013 season.
Unfortunately, that was Moss’ problem with the 49ers last year as he was criticized for his work ethic once again numerous times throughout the regular season and playoffs–especially in the Super Bowl. There were a few key plays against the Ravens in which Moss appeared to have given up and played a major impact in the game.
If Moss really wanted to play another season in the NFL, he better figure out a way to fix his work ethic–or he won’t be receiving many phone calls from interested teams. Moss needs San Francisco more than they need him and if he could figure out a way to convince them to give him one more shot–he would most likely have his last chance to prove himself as a wideout in the NFL.
