Winning has its drawbacks. Up until week 3, the St. Louis Rams were at the top of the list for teams making waiver claims based on their 2009 record. Since then, the waiver order is determined by current record, and there are a few teams ahead of the Rams that could easily make a claim for Moss.

The current NFL waiver priority is: BUF, DAL, CAR, SF, DEN, MIN, DET, CLE, CIN, SD, ARI...then St. Louis.

For some teams, a move to make a one-season rental just doesn't make sense. On Twitter, media speculation about which teams would have interest is already heating up.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Rams would likely be in the mix along with the Cowboys, Redskins, Bears, Dolphins, Raiders, Chiefs, Jets and Patriots. He also points to Seattle in another Tweet.

Moss comes at a fairly high cost, $3.38 million for the rest of the season. That might not make much sense for teams unlikely to make the playoffs, a list that DOES NOT include the Rams.
