Titans grab Moss off waivers

The Tennessee Titans claimed Randy Moss off the waiver wire Wednesday, choosing not to take any risks with receiver Kenny Britt missing at least one game with an injured right hamstring.

Coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement after the Titans were awarded Moss that the receiver offered an opportunity to upgrade their offense.

"Randy has been a tremendous threat whereever he has been," Fisher said. "We will bring him up to speed as quickly as possible." Moss is a relative bargain due about $3.34 million for the final eight games this season. He has 22 catches for 313 yards and five TDs in eight games.

Childress accepts blame

The Randy Moss experiment blew up in Brad Childress' face, a spectacular football and public relations failure that has turned up the pressure on the Vikings' coach.

Childress spoke Wednesday, two days after deciding to cut Moss less than a month into his second stint in Minnesota. "It was a poor decision," Childress said, referring to the Oct. 6 deal in which the Vikings sent a third-round draft choice to the Patriots for Moss. "I've got to stand up and I have to make it right. When it's not right, you need to make it right."

Bills claim Merriman

The Bills have claimed outside linebacker Shawne Merriman off waivers in a bid to improve their porous defense. It's unclear when Merriman will join the Bills, who play Chicago in Toronto on Sunday.

Cards' Anderson to start
