Raiders a possibility for Moss?

I don't know where Randy Moss stops next, but a source I trust said he wouldn't rule out the Oakland Raiders.

Huh? It makes no sense. The Raiders couldn't wait to discard the guy in 2007 and sent him to New England for a fourth-round pick. So why would they want him back?

"Because Al (owner Al Davis) thought they never should have let him go," the source said.

But nothing happens in Oakland without Al Davis signing off on it. So if he didn't think he should've let him go, he should've never let him go. Seems pretty simple to me. I mean, nothing goes on without the owner's approval, and since Al Davis owns the Raiders no deal is done without his OK. So what gives?

According to the source, Davis went along with the move because he was trying to make good with then-coach Lane Kiffen. Kiffen didn't want Moss around, so Davis was going to make things as comfy for his head coach as he could -- which meant he wouldn't block the deal. Now, Kiffen is long gone, the Raiders are competitive again and Randy Moss is on the market.

"It makes sense," said the source.

I'm not convinced. But stay tuned.

The Bears are black and orange unless you've missed the last 2 years and think Cutler is still with the Broncos...

I seriously hope not. The Raiders have spent the past few years getting rid of all the poor character, lazy bums on the team. Moss will be nothing more than a distraction.

Then again, the Raiders have a history of taking in guys discarded by other teams and seeing them produce, including Rich Gannon and Jerry Rice.

I would bet $20 that the source is Michael Lombardi.
Yeah, i know, big spender.

If it is simply for the rest of this year, I'm cool with it.  If Al tries to lock him up long term, this has disaster written all over it.
