If there was any doubt in your mind – and really, there shouldn’t have been – it’s now official. WR Randy Moss will not be rejoining the Titans squad.
That’s the word from Tennessee GM Mike Reinfeldt, who took part in a conference call with Titans season ticket holders and broke the predictable news to them.
“I honestly don’t think we’ll try to re-sign him,” Reinfeldt said, via the Tennessean. “We’ve got some young guys we like and I think at this point in his career he will probably go elsewhere.”
Where that is, well, no one knows, though Moss has made it clear he wouldn’t mind a return engagement with the Patriots, and the Jets might actually be intrigued in perhaps trying to find a place for him – though I think most of us would agree that Rex Ryan’s squad shouldn’t bother.
In other Titans news, Reinfeldt said he liked second-year QB Rusty Smith, but not necessarily as a starter (“He could be a pretty good darn backup for a while,” Reinfeldt said in comments that I’m sure Smith would LOVE to read). Reinfeldt also said he’d love to have back MLB Stephen Tulloch. This, even though Tennessee drafted two linebackers (Akeem Ayers in the second round and Colin McCarthy in the fourth round) with its first four picks last week.
Right now, it’s unclear whether Tulloch would be a restricted or an unrestricted free agent.
“I think what we tried to do (in the draft) at the linebacker position and in all the positions is really create as much competition as possible: Get as many good football players as you can at each spot,” Reinfeldt said. “(But) Stephen Tulloch is a good football player and we want him back.”
