The Titans felt that Randy Moss was just too good to pass up twice. After skipping Moss in the 1998 draft, Tennessee claimed him off the waiver wire yesterday, in case you have not already heard.
“Timing is everything,” coach Jeff Fisher told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. “I really think the quicker we get him on the field, the longer he’s here, the more productive he’ll be. We think that he can help us, and I’m looking forward to seeing him run under those deep balls.” The Titans didn’t seem to be the front-runner to get Moss, ranking 23rd among NFL teams in the waiver system. But Tennessee was the only team to put in a claim on the talented, but much-traveled wideout. “Randy’s been a good teammate, and he’s very popular. I think this is a great opportunity for him. It’s a fresh start,” Fisher said.
There were three teams that I thought would have grabbed Moss first, based on waiver-order-priority in this post here. The Titans were the 4th (and last) team I assumed Moss would fall to.
