Randy Moss is a Titan

These days seem long removed; could Randy Moss pull off the same magic in his new home of Tennessee? (randymoss.org)

The 4:00 deadline has passed, and as announced on ESPN‘s “NFL Live,” Randy Moss is now on the Tennessee Titans. 21 other teams, including the Minnesota Vikings, passed on Moss to allow the Titans to pick him up.

Tennessee still has five divisional games on their schedule, including the Jaguars in Week 13, the Texans (worst pass defense in the league) in Weeks 12 and 15, and the rough and tough Colts in Weeks 14 and 17. And with Kenny Britt injured, Moss could be just what the Titans need to stay on top.

There was controversy over whether or not Moss would report to a team he didn’t like, with Moss supposedly being willing to sit out the season if he didn’t like his new team. But to hear the analysts talk, Jeff Fisher is a charismatic coach, the Titans are a good choice to make the playoffs, and they have Chris Johnson to distract the defense from Moss. So it looks like Randy Moss should report to the Titans.

If for whatever reason he doesn’t, the Titans can give him a five-day notice to report, and if he still doesn’t, the team could place him on the Reserve / Left Squad list, which would end his season and let his 2011-2012 status be determined by the new collective bargaining agreement.

The other weapons at Tennessee’s disposal, their being only half a game behind the lowest playoff teams in the AFC, and Moss’ potential in divisional games are all variables that made Tennessee a good fit for Randy Moss. As long as he’s thrown to now and then, and Jeff Fisher is dynamic enough to reign him in, then the Titans have just become that much more deadly. Oh, and Shawne Merriman is on the Bills now; that news kind of got lost in the Moss talk.
