Randy Moss to the Chiefs?

Dwayne Bowe, Jonathan Baldwin, Jerheme Urban, Steve Breaston, Dexter McCuster, Verran Tucker, Jeremy Horne, blah blah blah blah. I see one, maybe two names on that list that opposing defensive coordinators need to gameplan for. Other than Dwayne Bowe, no WR on this list scares defenses. There is no clear cut #2 WR. McCluster can cause some problems for defenses, but he’s not a #2 wideout by any means. But I know of someone who can step in and fit nicely at the #2 spot and be a one year place holder for Jonathan Baldwin. He knows the offense pretty well. It’s an offense that favors his style of play. Now that training camp is over, he is at a point where he could probably be lured out of retirement by a hearty one year deal. I am referring to none other than...

 

Randy Moss. Now I know some fans have been clamoring for him for the majority of the offseason, and some don’t want him anywhere near the team. This isn’t a new debate, and I’m not the first person to call for Randy Moss to come to KC. However, I do think there is no better time than right now for Pioli to put in a call to Moss’s agent. When the Chiefs added WR Steve Breaston, some of the Randy Moss talk died down. But I don’t think Breaston’s style of play allows him to to stretch the defense and make plays down the field. Breaston is at his absolute best as a slot WR, and that’s where he should stay. He makes plays on short routes over the middle and intermediate out-routes. Jerheme Urban is the same way. Now you’re left with Jonathan Baldwin - a rookie who may take some time before hitting his stride, Jeremy Horne - an extremely raw speed receiver with questionable hands, and Verran Tucker. Moss is likely sitting at home watching some of these preseason games, knowing he should be out there. The Chiefs don’t have a standout #2 WR right now. Now think for a minute... “Do those pieces somehow fit together?” Then of course there’s the Matt Cassel/Randy Moss hookup, which in 2009 was good for 69 catches for 1,008 yards and 11 TDs.

 

The real moral of the story is that the Chiefs need to bring in a solid #2 wideout to be a one year stopgap. I don’t see how bringing in Randy Moss for one year can possibly hurt this team, and he is by far the best available option. You can tell me in the comments which WR would be a better option than Moss, and then I will tell you why you are crazy... Aaaaaaand let the debate begin!
