Rams GM: Randy Moss can still play, but ...

The St. Louis Rams watched every snap Randy Moss played for New England and Minnesota this season.

The team ultimately concluded Moss has "plenty left" to offer an NFL offense, but the "timing" and "situation" weren't right to claim Moss off waivers from the Vikings.

That was the word Thursday from general manager Billy Devaney via 101ESPN St. Louis.

Devaney resisted giving details. He indicated the Rams did speak with people who had worked with Moss this season, including even athletic trainers.

Left unsaid: whether Moss was amenable to playing for the Rams, whether Moss' salary was a significant factor, whether the team thought Moss might negatively influence team chemistry, etc.
