Fisher said Monday he isn't thinking past the end of the season -- whenever that is. The contract extension Moss has been seeking most of this year won't be on the table until then.
"I don't have a ring. He doesn't have a ring, so we're going to try," Fisher said.
Moss arrived early Monday, and Fisher said the receiver passed a physical, worked out and met with coaches to start learning the offense. He also got his locker and met everyone in the building. Moss was even seen running around on the team's outdoor practice fields Monday afternoon.
"Usually, it's the case where you really don't have all the information," Fisher said. "There's a lot of things that go on, and I think that was the case there. We discussed a lot, and we've put it behind us. I'm excited for him. He's got a bounce in his step, and he's looking forward to getting on the field and helping us win."
How Moss feels remains unheard.
Moss arrived in Nashville late Sunday afternoon but didn't talk to a handful of reporters staked out at a private airport terminal. The Titans currently plan to make Moss available to reporters Wednesday after practice. That doesn't mean Moss will actually speak or take questions.
The receiver hasn't spoken to reporters since Oct. 13 and was fined $25,000 by the NFL for failing to cooperate with the media.
Fisher said Moss won't be treated differently than any other player on the roster, and he sees no risk whatsoever in bringing the well-traveled receiver to town. Fisher said Moss obviously has talked to people who knows how the Titans do things.
"He's heard great things about the locker room, and I don't see a risk at all," Fisher said. "He's a very good football player who became available to us, and it's a new start. It's a new start for him, and it's an opportunity for us to get better offensively."
The timing is perfect.
"You're going to have win the division to get in the playoffs ... There's no telling how the wild card thing's going to fall," Fisher said.
Fisher expects Moss to play when the Titans visit Miami (4-4) on Sunday. Moss didn't have a catch against the Dolphins in his last game with the Patriots on Oct. 4 before being traded to Minnesota, and Fisher said the receiver may have only a set of plays he's familiar with as he works to also learn the offense and a game plan.
He also gets to meet another new quarterback. Vince Young spent part of the weekend in Austin, Texas, opening up a steakhouse and treating his left ankle, but the Titans are due back at work Tuesday after a four-day break for the bye.
As the waiver claim worked out, Moss wound up enjoying a bye week that will leave him playing just 16 games this season instead of the 17 he had been on pace to play in if he had stayed in Minnesota.
But it's time to get back to work.
"He enjoyed his off weekend, his bye week, just like we did," Fisher said.
Notes: Fisher refused to give a timetable on receiver Kenny Britt's injured right hamstring other than to repeat Britt will not play at Miami.
