Indications are Seahawks won't seek Randy Moss
Posted by Danny O'Neil
But don't expect Randy Moss to join the list of big-ticket receivers sought by the Seahawks.
The expectation is Moss will be waived by Minnesota. All 32 teams would then be free to place a claim on Moss, indicating they are willing to acquire his contract and pay the remainder of his salary, which equates to more than $16 million.
The priority of waiver claims is based on the team's overall record, going from worst to first with the winless Bills have the top priority and the 6-1 Patriots having the lowest.
At 4-3, Seattle is No. 16 in terms of waiver-claim priority.
A Minneapolis Star-Tribune report Monday cited Moss' agent as saying Seatlte was among the teams who had already inquired regarding Moss. The agent has not returned a message from The Seattle Times and coach Pete Carroll declined to discuss the possibility of Moss, saying as far as he knew the player wasn't available.
However, indications are the Seahawks won't be among the teams pursuing Moss. If Moss is waived Tuesday as expected, the soonest he would be awarded to a team is Wednesday.
