07:12 AM ET 08.06 | Randy Moss is retired. And yet no one really believes it. Appearing on 620 KTAR's Burns and Gambo Friday afternoon, former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner made the case for adding Moss to the mix at receiver. "I don't think there's any question he could help," Warner said. "I still think there's something in the tank for Randy. . . . He has a great relationship with Larry Fitzgerald. That could be a huge plus coming to this organization. "I think a deep threat is something that they need. They need somebody that can stretch the field. As good as Larry is, that's not the player that he is."

Now THAT would be a great receiving combination!!!

He is done and no longer worth the headache in the locker room.

Well - if anybody can talk him out of retirement, it would most definitely have to be...

...the Cardinals?

August 6, 2011  08:06 AM ET

Moss has lost a step or 2.

For the right price, someone will still take a chance on him.

I think that's the key. If he was still the Randy Moss of old, then a team would be willing to take the risk. But the fact is he was dumped by two teams last year and played poorly enough to justify being cut by a third ............

He's goin to play for someone...that's a given...now if SI would leave this alone until it actually happens...

Mos just doesn't have it anymore.

*Moss.

Physically, there's no doubt in my mind he could still contribute and help a lot of teams. I think what little bit his head has always been in the game retired his final year with the Pats though.

Randy should stay retired.

August 6, 2011  10:41 AM ET

CaSH MoNeY~~~~!! Dude is the best receiver I've ever seen in my life talent wise, too bad he didn't apply himself more... on a 2nd note I don't know where he will end up but he's not staying retired too addicted to the cash!~

Yup... dude couldn't even play well enough last year knowing he was playing for a new contract somewhere.

Ain't worth the money or the headache.

The Patriots replaced him with Dieon Branch. That's all you need to know.

Truth is the Pats really haven't replaced him. They have a good stock of possession receivers but I think they could do with a burner, not Moss obviously, but someone who would give then the same threat that Moss did at his best

Wis don't put up with headaches.

Sadly, there's very few Randy Moss-es on the league. In his prime he was a beast. Even at the start of his decline he was a beast.
I don't think he's completely done, but with his attitude he sure as hell won't play for a non contender, not with that huge chip on his shoulder.
And Kolb is a rookie for all good measure, you don't want your rookie QB having to put up with Moss.

LMAO off at all of the guys saying he doesn't have it anymore.

83 catches for 1,264 yds and 13 tds in 2009 but one bad season after 3 amazing years and he is washed-up.

Is he a headache? Yes...but he can still play and could help the right team.
