If the Indoor Football League’s Chicago Slaughter has its way, there will be two future Pro Football Hall of Fame receivers on IFL rosters this year.
On Thursday, the Slaughter extended an offer to Randy Moss, the former Viking, Raider, Patriot and Titan who came out of retirement in a UStream appearance on Monday. Moss spent the 2011 season out of football, and played for three different teams (the Titans, Vikes and Pats) in 2010.
Last week, of course, Terrell Owens was welcomed back to DFW football as a member of the IFL’s Allen Wranglers.
"Seeing the splash that T.O. made going to the Allen, Texas, team, it would be a coup for us to get Randy," Slaughter head coach (and former Bears’ defensive tackle) Steve McMichael said today, per ESPN.
Beyond the publicity such a deal would draw, McMichael believes Moss would be in a position to succeed in arena ball.
"Guys who are workout fiends--and Randy was, that's one of the reasons he was so good, they don't quit doing that," McMichael said. "Their routine is they get up in the morning, brush their teeth and work out. So he's in shape.
"And it's only a 50-yard field, baby. It's not like he has to run all over creation. It's like playing halfcourt basketball."
