Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Cross Chiefs off the watch...Haley says team not interested
That's a tweet from Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com following Todd Haley's press conference Wednesday afternoon. You can read the details of what Haley had to say from Kent Babb of the KC Star but, as
many some of us expected, the Kansas City Chiefs aren't interested in waived WR Randy Moss.
Of course it's possible the Chiefs aren't interested because they know they couldn't get him. Coaches and GMs throughout the league talk and if the Chiefs caught wind that Moss definitely wasn't going to be available at their spot on the waiver wire, then there's no reason for them to publicly announce their interest indirectly slighting the current Chiefs receivers. It's also equally possible they're legitimately not interested in his services. I'm not sure which one it is.
Speculation around the league included the Chiefs as a possible landing spot. The Chiefs could use a top receiver and there's the Patriots ties with GM Scott Pioli. There were reasons, on paper, to think the Chiefs would be interested. There were other reasons to think Moss wouldn't fit in the Chiefs locker room.
Here are a few of the Randy Moss stories we've had here over the last 48 hours:
- Chris Thorman: Randy Moss released by Vikings; don't expect him in Kansas City
- Jon Yoon: Cost of bringing in Randy Moss to Chiefs not likely worth the reward
- Matt Conner: Chiefs have every reason to reach for Randy Moss
