A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk free agent Randy Moss has a "tentative" agreement to join FOX as a commentator.
The deal isn't finalized, but "no glitches currently are expected." Joining FOX would likely make Moss' retirement official. Now 36 years old, Moss drew few nibbles in free agency due in large part to the facts his athleticism and explosion have evaporated, and Moss was only open to ideal team scenarios.

Date: reports free agent Randy Moss will only sign with a team that offers the right combination of quarterback, compensation, role, and prospects for contending.

In other words, Moss' career is likely over. At age 36, he's clearly not even close to the same player he once was. Moss also isn't worth the headache. If he never plays another down, he'll be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2018.

49ers GM Trent Baalke declined to comment on whether free agent Randy Moss has contacted him.

"I can't say whether he has or hasn't. Once again, nobody's off limits. Nobody." Baalke was responding to a question from a reporter -- he didn't bring up Moss on his own. It remains an extreme longshot that the Niners will bring back the 36-year-old Moss after he posted a meager 28/434/3 line for them last year. Baalke seems intent on letting A.J. Jenkins, Kyle Williams and Ricardo Lockette battle for the starting job opposite Anquan Boldin.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the 49ers "have had no recent contact" with free agent Randy Moss "before or after" Michael Crabtree's injury.

Moss, 36, reportedly "would listen" if the 49ers called, but the team appears set to move on with its younger receivers or pursue a trade. Moss has kept quiet since the season ended, and nobody knows for sure if he wants to keep playing.

CSN Bay Area says free agent WR Randy Moss "would listen" if the 49ers called.

It's unclear if the Niners even want him back as they try to replace Michael Crabtree. Moss didn't throw a tantrum last season, but couldn't have been happy with his part-time role and meager 28/434/3 line in 16 games. Now that Moss is 36 and well past his prime, the Niners need to aim higher. Asked about Moss, coach Jim Harbaugh deflected by saying he's excited about his young wideouts.

Free agent Randy Moss is still undecided on if he wants to continue his playing career.

CBS Sports' Mike Freeman reported two months ago that teams were interested in Moss, but the 36-year-old was uncertain about his future. Things haven't changed, and the clubs that were interested in Moss have likely moved on.

CBS Sports' Mike Freeman reports teams are interested in free agent Randy Moss, but he has gone silent on his plans for 2013.

Moss is still deciding whether to continue his playing career. Moss isn't viewed as a starter, but some teams believe he can be a valuable part of their receiving corps. The 36-year-old would likely only consider signing with a contender.

One of free agent Randy Moss' 49ers teammates thinks the receiver will play one more season.

"I think Randy wants to play again," said another teammate. "I'm just not sure he wants to go to another team and have to learn another system." If Moss can't find a contender willing to sign him, it's expected that he will hang up the cleats -- again. We don't expect teams to be beating Moss' door down for his services.

A tweet from free agent Randy Moss on Saturday indicated he's been informed he won't be retained by the 49ers.

"Wished we could've finished the job!!" Moss tweeted, referring to the Niners' Super Bowl loss. "Thanks for the opportunity an(d) good luck in the future 9ers." Rotoworld free-agent wiz Nick Mensio ranks Moss 11th among available receivers, behind the likes of Kevin Ogletree, Jerome Simpson, and Donnie Avery.

According to, the 49ers "were making it clear" at last week's NFL Combine that free agent Randy Moss won't be re-signed.

It's not surprising. Moss complained about his role leading up to Super Bowl 47, and his production underwhelmed on the field in 2012. A stiff, upright receiver lacking explosive ability, he's obviously lost a lot of his athletic fluidity at age 36. Moss will not be coveted on the free-agent market.

Addressing reporters at the Combine, 49ers GM Trent Baalke was noncommittal on the future of free agent Randy Moss.

"Randy’s a pro, and I can’t say enough good things about Randy," Baalke said. "And I think if you ask anyone within our organization, they would say the same thing. So, we’re certainly happy he was there. Is he going to return this year? I don’t know that yet." Moss is not expected back in San Francisco.

CSN Bay Area's Bill Romanowski accused Randy Moss of "alligator arms" on Ed Reed's Super Bowl interception.

The controversial Romanowski will spout off on anything and everything, but Moss appeared oddly disinterested throughout his second Super Bowl appearance, and it was most apparent on Reed's pick. Romanowski's "alligator arm" allegation is actually inaccurate, as Moss failed to even look up at Colin Kaepernick's overthrow. It wasn't a good look for a player who's long faced questions about his effort, and sat out the 2011 season after failing to draw interest in free agency. Moss wants to play in 2013, but teams won't be lining up for the future Hall-of-Famer's services.

Randy Moss caught two passes for 41 yards in San Francisco's Super Bowl 47 loss to Baltimore.

Although Colin Kaepernick's throw was clearly too high, Moss gave no effort whatsoever on a second-quarter pass that was intercepted by Ed Reed. Moss was catch-less until the 8:30 mark in the third quarter, catching a short pass for a first down and later ripping off 32 yards on a pinpoint throw by Kap. During Super Bowl week, Moss expressed his desire to be a featured receiver again. Having lost his burst going on age 36, Moss will have a very hard time in 2013 free agency.

Impending free agent Randy Moss hinted that he does not want to return to the 49ers next season.

Moss, who will turn 36 in two months, confirmed that he wants to play in 2013. But when asked if it will be with the Niners, he channeled Drew Rosenhaus with a "next question" response. When pressed, Moss said, "I don't like my role. I like to be out there playing football." As usual, Moss is overrating his own talents at this point in his career and thinks he doesn't see the ball enough. He caught just 28 passes as a seldom-targeted situational deep threat during the regular season.

ESPN Boston wonders if the Patriots could be interested in a reunion with impending free agent Randy Moss.

Moss, 36 next month, is no more than a No. 3 or 4 receiver at this stage of his career, but the Patriots are in need of some depth at the position. Wes Welker, Julian Edelman, Deion Branch, and Donte' Stallworth are all free agents this offseason. Moss would certainly be an upgrade on the latter two, and he could be an occasional deep threat. Reportedly, Moss wants to play one more season, but that could always change if the 49ers win the Super Bowl.
