According to Cam Inman of the, San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke indicated that they reached out to Randy Moss last season.

“The response was, ‘Not interested. Done. Hanging the cleats up.’ So we just let it go. Obviously Randy didn’t come back (in 2011) and sat out the year,” said Baalke.

When Moss “retired” last season, I really think it was a way for him to recharge and allow himself to take a mental break. Then he likely realized he wanted to keep playing football once the season ended.

Now we’ll get to see if Moss can be as effective as he once was.

  • I wouldn't count on him too much. He will get turned off again and " disappear" at some point during the season.

Randy Moss’ daughter Sydney Moss named Kentucky Miss Basketball

From the sound of it, Randy Moss isn’t the only freakishly athletic person in his family. We have all seen the amazing things that Moss is capable of on the field when he puts some effort in, and from the look of it the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Moss’ daughter, Sydney Moss, is a high school basketball star at Boone County high in Kentucky. According to WLWT, she...

5 reasons the 49ers could win it all in 2012

The San Francisco 49ers were a few plays away from going to the Super Bowl last season.  Through an impenetrable defense, a physical ground game and the dependable play of Alex Smith, the Niners shocked the NFL going 13-3 during the regular season before falling short in the NFC title game to a more offensively

Randy Moss reports to 49ers offseason workouts

According to Matt Maiocco of, wide receiver Randy Moss has reported to the San Francisco 49ers offseason program after being excused by head coach Jim Harbaugh to work out on his own for the first week. The Moss showed up this week since the player will have the opportunity to get on the field with the coaches and go over the playbook. So it’s vital for a new player...

Breaking: Randy Moss Can Jump

Randy Moss is one of the most prolific & physically gifted players in NFL history. Despite his gifts, he sometimes checks out mentally, however, which was the case last year as he floundered with 3 different teams. The 49ers, who came extremely close to a Super Bowl berth, took a shot on Moss to add [...]

LaMichael James Lands in San Francisco

The San Francisco 49ers selected running back LaMichael James with the No. 61 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: James is coming off a stellar career at Oregon, and displayed exceptional instincts, quickness and balance - but his slight frame may limit him to a complementary role in the NFL. And his fantasy stock looks to be low while fighting for touches behind Frank Gore...

Frank Gore’s carries will likely be reduced

The San Francisco 49ers have certainly bolstered themselves at the running back position this offseason by signing free agents Brandon Jacobs and Rock Carwright, who will certainly have to compete for a roster spot in training camp with both Anthony Dixon and Kendall Hunter. With the 49ers using a second round pick on former Oregon running back LaMichael James, I would expect him...

San Francisco 49ers 2012 Draft Grades

30. WR AJ Jenkins DThis isn’t a D because “the 49ers could have gotten him later.” That’s not true. The Rams were very interested in him and probably would have taken him at 33. This is a D because I don’t think Jenkins was worth the spot. It would have been a bad pick if the Rams had taken him at 33 too. Jenkins is fast and a solid route runner, but he’s just a slot...

A.J. Jenkins Surprise Pick For 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers pulled wide receiver A.J. Jenkins from the board with the No. 30 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: Jenkins was viewed as a reach, namely with Stephen Hill, Alshon Jeffery, Brian Quick and Rueben Randle still on the board - but Jenkins should still develop into an explosive weapon for a San Francisco receiving corps that was a glaring weakness for an...

Poised for a Growth Spurt

A single tree can not stand alone. Michael Crabtree came to the San Francisco 49ers from the 2009 NFL Draft with high expectations and (unfortunately) high demands. At the time, the selection of Crabtree was lauded by the media and fans as the steal of the draft, the shot of adrenaline to a moribund Jimmy Raye led offense. Fast forward three seasons of rotating coordinators, nagging...

Had 49ers not taken Jenkins at No. 30, Rams may have selected him at No. 33

The 49ers surprised observers last Thursday night when they selected Illinois receiver A.J. Jenkins with the 30th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. But now we know that if the Niners hadn’t snagged Jenkins at No. 30, the Rams probably would have taken him at No. 33. Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver was actually in the war room with Jeff Fisher and Les Snead in St. Louis last...

Tom Brady - Randy Moss - Jabar Gaffney (by travisbarker12) The quality isn’t too great on this one but this has to be the single best play of the 2007 season, capped off by Jabar Gaffney’s TD catch.  Can you guess the one other awesome TD grab that Gaff had that season? I’ll be posting it later.
