The San Francisco 49ers worked out aging, talented, enigmatic Randy Moss on Monday for 15 minutes, according to CSNBayArea.com.
San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh threw to Moss at the 49ers' practice facility after Moss had a physical at Stanford University.
"He looked good," San Francisco running back Anthony Dixon told CSNBayArea.com.
Dixon said Moss ran a variety of routes, including slants, outs and curls.
"Jim and (GM) Trent (Baalke) want to see if he can play," 49ers CEO Jed York told CSNBayArea.com. "We need to add somebody who can stretch the
field, and it's up to those guys to see if he's a fit."
Moss and San Francisco team representatives met after the workout.
When asked if he would like to see Moss on the team, Dixon said yes.
"Oh, yeah, definitely," Dixon said. "That's Randy. You got to account
for him when he's on the field."
Moss, 35, did not play last season after announcing his retirement.
He's renowned as a deep-passing threat, something the 49ers lack, and
is second all-time in receiving touchdowns with 153.
The last season he played was a mess. Moss traded by the Patriots,
waived by the Vikings and finished with six catches for 80 yards for
the Tennessee Titans in 2010.
But as recently as 2009, he was a force with Tom Brady and the
Patriots. Moss had 83 catches for 1,264 yards and 13 touchdowns that
Michael Crabtree led the 49ers with 72 catches for 874 yards last
