09:10 AM ET 11.13 | Randy Moss has turned down two teams who offered him contracts this season. If the Pats would call Moss, one of the first topics would be the money. It's believed that Moss is hoping for an annualized rate of $10 million, which with seven weeks left after Monday equates to $4.11 million for the balance of the year. Moss likely would give the Pats a discount, if the phone rings.

Based upon last year's performance, I can't see anyone desperate enough to give him that kind of cash. Is he even in football shape?

Don't hold your breath, Randy....

Patriots, Buccaneers, Rams, Colts,,,,,,, a call from the Tallahassee Thrashers would get Randy's attention

Oh hell...why not. Given the choice between him and Ocho, I'd say b'bye Ocho.

Make the call. The Pats can't wait much longer. They need someone who can stretch the field and take away the double teams from Welker.

A second chance with the Pats might actually get (and keep) Moss's attention, but I don't see Belichick doing anything close to this. I don't think he wants to seem desperate, regardless of what his circumstances are.

Or maybe even the Chicago AFL that offered a contract to T.O.

Double post? Damn...

If I were Moss I would not hold my breath waiting for the Patriots to call

This has been the season of retreads in Hoodie's lab. Wouldn't surprise me at this point. If you can pick up a slug like Fat Albert, anything is possible.

Fat Albert and Ocho were experiments, either perform or get out, Moss was with the team and traded, I don't think he will get a second chance from the hoodie.

Cost a 5th rounder to see if Fat Albert still wanted to play.

Worth the gamble.

And his agent manages to keep a straight face through this.

I wonder if Randy turned down two other teams, or if two other GMs laughed in his face at the notion of the annualized rate?

The guy runs two routes. The fly pattern and the one to his bank.
