Seahawks, Niners, Jets to pass on Randy Moss?

We spent plenty of time this morning putting together the NFL waiver order, noting in the process what teams might be interested in taking on the troubled talent that is Randy Moss.

In our list, the 49ers and Seahawks were listed as weak "maybes" -- and reports Wednesday indicate that neither is likely to claim Moss by 4 PM.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the Niners "are not expected" to put in a claim on Moss (or Shawne Merriman), according to a source with knowledge of the situation. It's kind of a shame, since the Mike Singletary and Moss would allow us to nickname the Niners "Pants Party" for the rest of the season.

In other NFC West news, Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times states that "indications were the Seahawks weren't interested" in placing a claim on Moss or Merriman either. Seattle has a need at wideout, and Pete Carroll isn't scared to make an aggressive move, but there are bigger concerns for the 'Hawks -- namely protecting the guy who can't even really throw the deep ball.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that, per a league source, the Jets have not placed a claim on Moss either -- this is logical in that Rex Ryan and Co. would only reasonably take a stab at Moss in order to block the Patriots from picking him up. After all, adding Moss to a wide receiver corps that includes Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes is the equivalent to inviting Snooki onto the Real World: Craziest Housemate Reunion.

Provided these reports are accurate, it seems likely that the top team with reasonable shot at pulling the trigger on a claim for Moss are the St. Louis Rams (although I still think the Chargers are a candidate, though bringing in Moss would undermine Norv Turner and give A.J. Smith more of a headache at wideout), who occupy the 13th spot in the current NFL waiver order.
