Randy Moss works out with New Orleans Saints, “looked like the old Randy” (updated)

Randy Moss worked out with the New Orleans Saints, running about 45 routes and catching passes from former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brian Brohm.

Fox Sports’s Glazer reported that Moss “looked like the old Randy” during the workout. Pro Football Talk had the same take, quoting an unnamed source saying the tryout “couldn’t have gone better.”

Original post filed at 7:56 a.m.

The New Orleans Saints, embroiled in a bounty scandal involving former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, will distract themselves by taking a look at Randy Moss.

The wide receiver, who hopes to return to the NFL after a year in retirement, will work out with the team today, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer. The Saints will also bring in former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brian Brohm to throw to Moss.

The Saints, who could lose wide receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem in free agency, may legitimately be interested in Moss, who is 35. Although Moss played for three teams in his wild, last season in the league, he and New England quarterback Tom Brady were successful and perhaps the Saints want to see if he’s capable of duplicating that success with Drew Brees.

Or, as they did last month with linebacker Lofa Tatupu, they may just be taking a look-see at a guy who has 954 career receptions for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns. At any rate, the Moss tour is just getting started. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that he is excpected to visit two more teams next week.
