NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans have been awarded wide receiver Randy Moss off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings. A total of 22 other teams had a chance to claim Moss before the Titans decided to make their move on the embattled receiver. "We had an opportunity to upgrade our offense and Randy has been a tremendous threat where ever he has been," said Titans head coach Jeff Fisher. "We will bring him up to speed as quickly as possible". The Titans will be responsible for $3.888 million of his $6.4 million salary. Moss was placed on waivers by the Vikings on Tuesday after spending just under a month with the team. He was acquired by Minnesota in a trade with New England on October 6. In four games with Minnesota, the Marshall product compiled 13 catches for 174 yards and a pair of scores. He had just nine receptions for 139 yards and three touchdowns in four games with the Patriots. "We are always looking for ways to improve our roster," said Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt. "Randy is obviously a Hall of Fame player and has the ability to be a difference maker for our offense." Tennessee in on a bye this week, meaning Moss could make his Titans debut at Miami on November 14. During his 14-year career, Moss has 948 career receptions for 14,778 yards and his 153 touchdown catches are second only to Jerry Rice's 197.
