Cowboys Passing On Randy Moss, Again

Randy Moss is coming out of his retirement, but once again, the Cowboys aren't interested in Moss' services. As Calvin Watkins pointed out, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys brass passed on him during the 1998 draft because of off-field concerns. In Dallas' defense, many teams passed on him before he eventually was selected by Minnesota.

While it certainly came back to haunt Jerry Jones the first time around, it likely won't haunt Dallas this time. There's absolutely no need for the Cowboys to go out and take a gamble on Moss when Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are on the team. Re-signing Laurent Robinson would also be a priority over taking a gamble on Moss.

It's fun to dream and pretend NFL teams are built like Madden rosters, but that's just not the case. Who knows what Moss even has left in the tank at this point. After all, the last we saw of Moss in '10 had him traded by the Patriots, released by the Vikings before becoming absolutely useless on the Titans.

Some team will take a gamble on him, and hey, it might even pay off. There's just no reason for Dallas to do so.
