Randy Moss signs with 49ers

On his 35th birthday, a little less than one month ago, Randy Moss announced via a UStream.tv chat that he wanted to end his retirement and return to the NFL.

Today, he officially saw that come true.

Hours after a brief workout with the 49ers – former Colts’ quarterback/current San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh was the one throwing him the ball – Moss and the Niners agreed to a one-year contract.

Last week, Moss had a workout with the Saints.

In a conference call with San Francisco reporters late Monday night, Moss was asked about wanting to get back into football:


“…I really didn’t know who was going to try me out, who was going to hook me up. So I had a tryout with the Saints and came here to San Francisco a week later,” he said. “Basically, the organization, Coach Harbaugh and general manager and owner pulled the trigger. So, like I said, I look forward to coming out here to the Bay Area and giving the 49ers fans, organization, something to rave about this season. I look forward to playing.”
