Titans claim receiver Randy Moss off waivers from Vikings

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans passed on wide receiver Randy Moss once before, back in the 1998 draft.

Not again.

The Titans claimed Moss off waivers Wednesday.

The Titans are 5-3, a half-game back in the AFC South with five divisional games remaining down the stretch. They were the only team to put in a claim on Moss, even though they ranked 23rd among NFL teams in the waiver system. Fisher said in a statement that the receiver offered an opportunity to upgrade their offense.

How quickly Moss joins the Titans remains to be seen. The Titans are on their bye and hold their last practice Thursday before breaking for the weekend. Players won’t be due back until Tuesday, but agent Joel Segal said Moss will be heading to Tennessee.

“Randy’s excited to get back playing football,” Segal said. “He’s ready to go and looking forward to get there.”
