    Tice wants Moss back

    profootballtalk.com

    MEATHEAD WANTS MOSS?

    There are strong indications coming out of Jacksonville the assistant coach Mike "Meathead" Tice is lobbying aggressively for the team to make a trade with the Raiders for receiver Randy Moss.

    Moss openly mused this week on FOX Sports Radio about the possibility of playing for another team, and he told host Chris Myers that he'd be willing to accept a trade.

    V.P. of player personnel James "Shack" Harris is warming to the idea, we hear, but word is that owner Wayne Weaver and right-hand man Paul Vance are reluctant to bring a high-profile malcontent to the team.


    There's also some concern about the price tag to get Moss away from Oakland.
    The Raiders gave up the No. 7 overall draft pick, a seventh-round choice, and linebacker Napoleon Harris in the March 2005 deal with the Vikings.
    Surely, the Raiders would have to justify their prior package by getting something close to it now.

    Although the Raiders would take a cap hit by moving Moss, it would be spread over two seasons.
    Via a series of restructurings, most of his 2005 salary and some of his 2006 salary was converted to a bonus payment.
    (To the extent we suggested otherwise on Tuesday, we were wr-wr-wr-wr-confused.)

    Also complicating matters is the basic notion that Raiders owner Al Davis might be reluctant to allow Moss to get his way.
    Davis owns the receiver's rights through 2008, and Davis might decide to force Moss to rot for two-plus seasons in Oakland in lieu of landing with a contending team (see Allen, Marcus).

    A reunion of Moss and the Meathead would be awkward at first, since Tice was the coach of the Vikings when Moss was traded away.
    But, assuming Moss still has some of the stuff that made him one of the most feared wideouts in the league from 1998 through 2005 (and some question whether he really does), he'll make that offense a lot better -- instantly.

    To get Moss, the Jags likely would be willing to give up a member of their trio of young receivers who have been good but not great to date:
    Reggie Williams, Ernest Wilford, and Matt Jones.
    As we hear it, Wilford would be the most likely to be dangled.

    Stay tuned.

    This makes it 100%, it was not the coach's decision to trade Moss.


    Way to go Red!!

    Imagine the Jags with Matt Jones and Moss.
    Not bad.
    Also, as much as I wish the Vikings would make a push to get back our #1 guy, it would be fun to watch a Marshall combo in Leftwich and Moss.
    Pretty much anything would be better than Oakland right now, its sad watching such talent go to waste.

    Exactly, this would debunk any theories that it was Tice's decision to trade Moss.
    Expose Red for the cheap ass dee-dee-dee he is.

    Re: Tice wants Moss back

    I would honestly give up Troy Williamson for Randy Moss.. Moss is a proven WR in the NFL, Williamson has dropped many passes just this year that would have been game changing catches for us..

    Without Moss on our team, all those years we wouldn't have been in the top 5 in offense in the league.. I would love to have him back in purple, but that probably would never happen..

    I would love to have Moss back like most of you guys but it will not happen. Childress will not pick up anybody that has on and off the field problems. Look how quickly he dropped Koren after his dui. Also he just got rid of Daunte because he thought he reminded him of TO.

    So I really don't think there is any chance of this happening even though it would be nice to get him back.

    Red is so cheap I'm surprised he didn't trade a used car for Moss.
