The Titans have claimed Randy Moss off waivers from the Vikings according to Jim Wyatt via his Twitter page. They were also the only team to put in a claim on the troublemaker.

The only thing that remains to be seen is if the Titans are good enough to acquire Moss’ services. Earlier in the day, Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reported that the receiver would be willing to sit out the remainder of the season if he dislikes the team that claims him. He apparently wants a ring and won’t allow a little thing like self respect get in the way of what he wants most in life.

If you haven’t picked up on my distaste for Moss (it’s more of his attitude than him as a player) in the first two paragraphs, let me lay it on a little thicker for you: I hope he doesn’t want to play for Tennessee and he winds up sitting out the rest of the year. Then, in protest of his attitude, none of the 32 teams pick up the phone and call him this offseason.

But that’s not going to happen. Even at his age, he’s too talented for teams to stay away, although I find it interesting that the Titans were the only ones to put a claim in.

If does he report, he’ll make Chris Johnson even more lethal because teams won’t be able to stack the box and leave their corners on an island with Tennessee’s receivers. Moss is too good not to at least have a safety shading to his side, so CJ might see some open running lanes.

This of course doesn’t bode well for Kenny Britt’s hamstring injury. He won’t play in Week 10 when the Titans come back from their bye and if the team thought he could return shortly thereafter, there would be no sense in claiming Moss. They’re 30th in pass attempts per game and obviously their commitment is to getting Johnson the ball, so if Britt was healthy I imagine they would have taken a pass on Moss.

We’ll see how this all turns out. But given that it’s Randy Moss, it probably won’t be pretty.
