Does Randy Moss make sense for the Bears?

SHARE Does Randy Moss make sense for the Bears?

Let’s think about this for a moment.

You targeted a wide receiver, Kevin White, with the seventh pick of the NFL draft, but he’s likely out for the season after surgery. Your top-returning receiver, Alshon Jeffery, has been hobbled. You sent Brandon Marshall, your best receiver over the past three seasons, to the Jets.

So, besides veteran Eddie Royal, that leaves Jay Cutler with these possible targets: Marquess Wilson (19 career catches), Marc Mariani (5 career catches) and Josh Bellamy (zero).

Eight years ago, Randy Moss had 23 touchdown catches in one season.

If Moss, 38, is serious about making a comeback, why wouldn’t the Bears give the surefire HOFer a look? Besides giving them a much-needed lift on the field, he could help mentor the young, inexperienced corps.

If you’re worried about his conditioning, forget about it. Moss works out all the time and looks NFL-ready.

Moss made more than $71 million in his playing days, so money is not the issue here. And while he enjoys his announcing work on Fox, don’t refer to him as a member of the media.

But be warned: Moss teased a comeback last season that never happened.

Still, the Bears had better move fast before Green Bay does.
