Pete Carroll says Seattle Seahawks were never interested in Randy Moss

The Seattle Seahawks have today moved to reject claims from former NFL star receiver Randy Moss that they had reached out to him with an offer of a return to the league.

The rumor originated courtesy of a FOX Sports story earlier this week and Moss himself confirmed the report himself over the weekend.

But Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll used Thursday's press conference to deny Moss' suggestion, shooting down the rumor in double quick time.

"Thanks for asking that," Carroll told reporters.

"That never happened. That never happened. Nobody asked that question, and, you know, that's never happened."

Moss last appeared in the NFL in 2012 for Seattle's NFC West rivals the San Francisco 49ers but revealed recently that he would consider a shock return if the circumstances were right.

Seattle came into the equation courtesy of Fox Sports journalist Jay Glazer who reported that the Seahawks had reached out to Moss following their decision to trade away wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets last month.

The reigning champs have had their struggles throwing the ball this season, ranking bottom of the NFL in total passing yards with 1750. But to suggest that they were willing to bring Moss out of retirement, no matter how good he was in his heyday, would certainly seem a stretch even for an innovative coach like Carroll.

The team will have to address the issue at wideout at some point in the future however with the likes of Doug Baldwin, Ricardo Lockette and Jermaine Kearse hardly striking fear in opponents. 

Unfortunately for fans of the man who holds the record for most TD receptions in a single season, it doesn't look like Randy Moss will be the man to answer the call.
