Moss wants to come back for a final season in the NFL, according to 49ers players who spoke with CBSSports.com.

"I think Randy wants to play again," an unnamed 49ers player said. "I'm just not sure he wants to go to another team and have to learn another system."

Moss, 36, doesn't expect to be back with the 49ers next season. He tweeted farewell to San Francisco on Saturday. Moss is set to become a free agent on March 12.

Moss, who returned to football last season with the 49ers and reached the Super Bowl after retiring in 2011, likely would seek to play for a Super Bowl contender. It would be his 15th season in the NFL.

Lauren Silberman's history-making NFL tryout ended quickly.

Silberman, the first woman to take part in a regional scouting combine sponsored by the NFL, suffered a leg injury after two kickoffs Sunday and had to bow out.

According to a report, Silverman appeared to hurt her leg on her first kick, which went about 15 yards, at the New York Jets' indoor training facility. She tried another kickoff and it traveled only 14 yards.

Cincinnati Bengals right tackle Andre Smith is seeking a contract that will pay him $9 million on the free-agent market, ProFootballTalk reported.

Smith, 26, becomes a free agent after just four years because of a clause in the contract he signed as a rookie.

The Bengals were required to pay him a $4.75 million option bonus in 2011 to pick up the final two years of the deal.

Because of injuries he managed just five starts in those first two years, so the Bengals did not pay the bonus. But in the last two years, he has become one of the top tackles in the NFL.
