Randy Moss is the greatest wide receiver to ever play in the NFL. So says ... Randy Moss. The San Francisco 49ers receiver told the press at Super Bowl XLVII media day Tuesday that he doesn't put much stock in statistics -- which is good since statistically he is not the greatest receiver of all time. "I don't really live on numbers," Moss said. "I really live on impact and what you're able to do out on that field, so I really do think I'm the greatest receiver ever to play this game.

Randy Moss could still be one of the top receivers in the NFL. Says who? Says Moss during an appearance Tuesday on "The Peter Schrager Podcast . " "If I had to go out here and feed my family by getting back on that football field, I could still put up 15 or 16 touchdowns," Moss said. "I can still play the game. I don't know what a lot of people seen last year, but I know what it looked like. It looked like I was old and that they were trying to keep me fresh and things like that, but, man, I can still play the game of football.

When you think of the San Francisco 49ers, it's hard not to think of quarterbacks. That's the kind of imprint Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young left on that franchise. But did you know that with the signing Monday of Randy Moss, four of the top five receivers in career yards have been members of the 49ers? In order, that's Jerry Rice, of course, with 22,895; Terrell Owens with 15,934; Isaac Bruce with 15,208; and Moss with 14,858. The only receiver in the top five who didn't play for San Francisco was fourth-place Tim Brown (14,934)

Aaron Rodgers is scheduled to start at quarterback for Green Bay in a winner-take-all game at Chicago on Sunday. Rodgers missed the Packers' last seven games after suffering a fractured collarbone in a Nov. 4 loss to the Bears. The winner of Green Bay-Chicago will be the NFC North champion, while the loser is eliminated from postseason contention. Packers Coach Mike McCarthy announced the Rodgers decision during his regular Thursday news conference. "Aaron Rodgers is our starting quarterback," he said.

Randy Moss to the New Orleans Saints? Sounds kind of crazy with everything else that the Saints have going on right now, but it could happen. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that the awesome-when-he-wants-to-be wide receiver will work out for the defending NFC South champions on Tuesday. Moss is one of the best wide receivers in NFL history and, even though he spent all of 2011 out of the league, he still could be a valuable asset to a team ... if he wants to. And he says that he wants to. But do the Saints, who were the No. 2 seed coming out of the NFC last year, really need to bring in the talented but controversial receiver right now?

Randy Moss is a 49er. No, that does not refer to the number of teams he's played for (although it was kind of starting to seem that way in 2009). He signed a one-year deal with San Francisco on Monday after spending all of 2010 away from football and the previous year on three different teams. In Moss, the 49ers are getting a veteran receiver who has been one of the all-time greats in the NFL when motivated. He had an NFL-record 23 touchdown receptions when paired with quarterback Tom Brady on the New England Patriots back in 2007.

A day after declaring himself the greatest receiver ever, Randy Moss did not back down from his statements -- even if they did seem to upset the all-time leader in most statistical categories at the position. "What I said is what I felt, and I don't want to get into a shouting match with Jerry Rice or anybody," Moss said as the San Francisco 49ers, preparing for Sunday's Super Bowl, met the media on Wednesday. "It's my personal opinion. [Rice] has the numbers but I don't believe in numbers.

Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson are all back in the NFL. Time to party like it's 2003! Or 2007! But definitely not 2011, when none of the three controversial and one-time elite wide receivers were even in the league. Wait, Johnson played last season? In the Super Bowl? Really? OK, if you say so. Anyway, Owens signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday after a year out of the league. Moss was claimed by the San Francisco 49ers earlier in the off-season. And Johnson -- who legally changed his last name back from Ochocinco last month -- hopes to put last year's dreadful season with the New England Patriots behind him with his new team, the Miami Dolphins.

Randy Moss is getting another chance in the NFL. Moss is back after reaching a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, announced by the team late Monday. He will fill a big void for the reigning NFC West champions. The 35-year-old Moss worked out with the 49ers earlier in the day — and former NFL quarterback and current Coach Jim Harbaugh participated. Moss, who worked out last Tuesday with the New Orleans Saints, spent a year out of football and last played for New England, Minnesota and Tennessee during a rocky 2010 season.

When Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns to the Bay Area to face San Francisco on Saturday night, it will be a homecoming for him - with a twist. His beloved 49ers passed on him with the first pick in the 2005 draft, selecting Alex Smith instead. Rodgers, who was a candidate for that prime draft slot, tumbled to 24th, where the Packers selected him. Rodgers certainly isn't grousing about that now, having won a Super Bowl and a most-valuable-player award with Green Bay, yet he certainly has to love the opportunity he has this weekend.

Calvin Johnson has lived up to his larger-than-life nickname on the field. Now he's being rewarded with the biggest contract in NFL history. The wide receiver known as Megatron has signed a new eight-year contract worth $132 million, including $60 million guaranteed, to remain with the Detroit Lions through the 2019 season. The former No. 2 overall draft pick was entering the final year of the six-year deal he signed with Detroit as a rookie in 2007. Under the former deal, Johnson's contract would have cost the team more than $20 million against their salary cap. "They were happy to get this thing done with, and I was happy as well,” Johnson said.

When Randy Moss showed up at Florida State, coach Bobby Bowden was almost giddy over his new wide receiver. "He can run, he can jump, but what he does best is run like a scalded dog," Bowden said before Moss ran afoul of the law and was kicked off the team. A year and another school later, Moss hasn't stop running. And no one can catch him.

Peyton Manning has narrowed down his choices of potential teams to join as a free agent. Or so the reports say. But oddly enough, that list seems to keep growing rather than getting smaller, like most lists that are being narrowed down tend to do. Since being released by the Indianapolis Colts last week, the veteran quarterback has met with the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos, spending at least six hours with each team. Reports early Monday said Manning had no intention of meeting with any other teams.
