Randy Moss Claimed By Tennessee Titans

The Randy Moss saga ended quickly and swiftly, with the Tennessee Titans swooping in to grab the recently released wide receiver. After being placed on waivers yesterday, the highest team on the order would be awarded Moss, and the contract that goes with him, as early as today. That team was the Titans, who add Moss to a receiving corps that needs a big-play threat.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the news on Twitter moments ago.

With Moss staying out of the NFC West, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. The Seattle Seahawks never considered Moss, opting to go with what they have at receiver, and the St. Louis Rams decided against claiming Moss, keeping the good thing they have going this season.

If you want to play a guessing game, at 5-3 the Titans were behind all NFC West teams, including the Seahawks, on the waiver wire. With the Titans No. 22 on the waiver list, 21 other teams passed on Moss. He hit the skids and fell far amid questions about his character and concerns about whether he'll even accept the team he was awarded to.

Now that Moss is out of the picture, we can all move on with our lives and focus on figuring out how the Seahawks can deal with all the injuries to both lines.


Report: St. Louis Rams Also Not Claiming Randy Moss

If the Seahawks aren't claiming Moss, at least he won't be heading to one threat in the division. The St. Louis Rams, arguable the hottest team in the NFC West right now, will not be placing a waiver claim for Randy Moss. The Rams are ahead of the Seahawks in the waiver order, but have no interesting in the former Minnesota Viking.

Fox Sports' NFL writer Jay Glazer, who's been on top of the situation, reported the news on Twitter.

The last thing the Seahawks need is a team in the NFC West picking up Moss. With the division in flux, and there for anyone's taking, the addition of Moss could push the Rams or Cardinals over the top, establishing them as a clear favorite in a weak NFC West.

No word yet on whether the Arizona Cardinals or San Fransisco 49ers are making a run at Moss, but we should know more as the day goes on.


Carroll: Seahawks Will Not Claim Randy Moss

Pete Carroll confirmed what's long been expected today: the Seattle Seahawks will not place a waiver claim for Randy Moss. After the Minnesota Vikings released the troubled wide receiver, speculation has been rampant that Seattle would make a run at Moss. At 16th in the waiver wire order, the Seahawks were a long shot to get Moss, but Carroll said Seattle has no interest in the wide receiver, even if he were to fall that far.

The official Seahawks Twitter account confirmed the news and put an end to the speculation.

While we don't know where Moss will end up yet, we should find out later today. After hitting the waiver wire yesterday, teams had until today to claim Moss. He will then be awarded to the team with the worst record that places a claim to him.

It's still unknown whether or not Moss will even play for the team that claims him. Reports surfaced today indicating Moss was willing to sit out the entire season if he was unhappy with the team his services were awarded to, handcuffing whomever places a claim for him and creating a headache for front offices. The Randy Moss saga continues to move along after the New England Patriots traded him earlier this year and the Vikings decided he wasn't worth their trouble after a few high profile incidences.

For Seahawks fans, the dream of a highly-touted receiver is over, but it may be for the best.


Seattle Seahawks Not Expected To Pursue Randy Moss

The Minnesota Vikings made it official and released Randy Moss today, amid a firestorm of speculation about his potential landing spot. The Seattle Seahawks, named by Moss’ agent as a potential suitor yesterday, could use the help at receiver, but are not expected to pursue Moss. With a 4-3 record, the Seahawks sit at 16th in the waiver wire claim order, meaning Moss would have to be passed over by 15 other teams before Seattle even gets a crack at the claim. It’s hard to imagine Moss, even with all the turmoil surrounding him, would slide that far.

The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil flatly shot down rumors that the Seahawks would try to claim Moss earlier today.

However, indications are the Seahawks won’t be among the teams pursuing Moss. If Moss is waived Tuesday as expected, the soonest he would be awarded to a team is Wednesday.

With Moss now on waivers, we’ll know more about the teams putting in claims as early as tomorrow. The process will happen fast and is a straight-forward one. All 32 teams have a chance to claim him, and assume the rest of his salary, today and the NFL will award him to the team with the lowest record as soon as tomorrow.


Pete Carroll Refuses To Answer Randy Moss Questions

The Minnesota Vikings reportedly released Randy Moss earlier today, setting off a firestorm of speculation about where Moss may end up. Moss will be placed on waivers, giving every team a shot to put in a claim for him. Moss will then be awarded to the team with the worst record that put in a waiver claim for him.

The timing of head coach Pete Carroll's weekly press conference couldn't be any worse today. As expected, Carroll was asked about Randy Moss and whether the Seahawks have any interest in placing a waiver claim for him. Like any head coach would, Carroll deflected the questions, refusing to deal in hypotheticals.

The Everett Herald's John Boyle tweeted that and other news from the press conference.

So, there you have it. A new take on the classic "no comment" from the Seahawks head man. After the drubbing in Oakland this weekend, the Seahawks have bigger concerns than Moss right now
