Source: Jets have 'no interest' in Moss

BY foxsports • April 12, 2011

The New York Jets will not be signing free agent wide receiver Randy Moss when the lockout ends.

A reliable league source tells FOXSports.com that the Jets have "no interest" in bringing in the talented but troubled wideout. Multiple reports this week indicated the Jets had serious interest.

Sources tell FOXSports.com that coach Rex Ryan talked in glowing terms about Moss as a way to motivate Jets free agent Santonio Holmes. Holmes told reporters over the weekend that he still had issues with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer stemming from his benching in the AFC title game loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

And there have been questions as to whether Holmes would work out in California with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

The Jets have several big name free agents and their top priorities remain bringing back Holmes, wide receivers Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith and cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
