Though Randy Moss has been out of the league for over a year, don't look for any signs of rust on the future Hall of Famer.

"It's tough to tell that he missed a year of football. I certainly don't see any rust," said 49ers quarterback Alex Smith talking to "He's running well, catching well. No surprise, he's a pro and already has a good understanding of the playbook."

"He still looks the same," said safety Donte Whitner, who used to match up across Moss twice a year during his time with the Bills. "He's a long strider, and when you actually run against him, he's really running really fast. He's running the same as he's always run. His body looks like a younger Randy Moss, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do on the football field."

Moss last played in the NFL in 2010, when he caught 28 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns while playing 16 games for three different teams: New England, Minnesota and Tennessee.
