With Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin tearing an ACL and Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta gone for at least six weeks with a dislocated hip the name “Randy Moss” could pick up some steam in league circles at least from a speculation standpoint.

Per a league source it’s highly unlikely Moss will play.

It’s going to take a perfect situation to get Moss back to the NFL with the right combination of quarterback role compensation and prospects for contending. It’s not impossible but at this point it’s highly unlikely. Only a perfect situation we’re told will bring him back for another year.

Moss adopted that same posture in 2011. He would have played for a small handful of teams with franchise quarterbacks but the planets never lined up.
