Moss' Name Keeps Popping Up

As noted in a post here a while back (that's the time equivalent of travelling "just back down the road a-ways" in its non-specificity), the name of Randy Moss as an addition to the Packers roster for 2007 keeps popping up. Chris Mortensen of ESPN on Sunday mentioned that the Packers have an apparent interest in Moss. Scott Favre, Brett's brother (a-duh!), said that Brett specifically talked to Packers' GM Ted Thompson about getting Moss. Reports also indicate that Moss was not overly pleased with his initial meeting with the new 31-year-old head coach of his current team, the Oakland Raiders, Lane Kiffin.

If Moss has gained the maturity to want to play football -- not take plays off when he wants to as he did with the ViQueens -- and wants to win a championship, he may want to play with Brett...who is making no secret of the fact he's coming back to take the Pack back to the playoffs and beyond. The Packers have a lot of salary cap room to play with this year, so can use some of that cash to go after an impact player of Moss' caliber. Perhaps he can keep his act together in Green Bay. I'm sure Brett would see to it.

Keep an on this one, Packer fans.
