While there's doubt where Randy Moss will ultimately end up, his short-term plans aren't as concrete. A source tells ProFootballTalk.com that the 49ers are planning to "steer clear" of Moss, making it clear that the future Hall of Fame receiver won't be back in a San Francisco uniform next season. It's not too surprising. Moss posted less than pedestrian numbers (28 receptions) during his time with the Niners in 2012. Despite the team's lack of healthy wideouts, Moss never appeared to be an integral part of the plans.

  • I will like the 9ers less now. Go Raiders!
  • Randy wasn't targeted or played that many snaps to be saying about his production with the 49ers!! Take the superbowl for instance, they threw the ball to Crabtree at the goal line and he tipped it and who was back in the end zone wide open and could have caught that pass???? RANDY MOSS!! Like I said before alot of the QB's and coaches don't want Randy to produce big numbers, not because of his age or ability but they don't want it to be about Randy!! BOTTOM LINE!!
