Adam Schefter is reporting Randy Moss will make his return to the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, signing a one-year deal after his workout catching passes from Jim Harbaugh this morning.
Of the rumored destinations for a hypothetical Randy Moss who is fast and motivated, I thought San Francisco was one of those that made sense. As we saw during the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers receivers might as well not have been on the field.
I wrote about Moss's 2010 play with the Titans here. From what I saw of his play then, both with the Titans and with the Pats and Vikings, he didn't separate downfield very often, and he was more or less worthless when there was a defender near him when the ball arrived. I'm not expecting much from him in San Francisco and don't think you should expect much either.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
