Randy Moss: retirement over, ready for NFL again
Randy Moss wants to come out of retirement and play in the NFL again in 2012, the former All Pro wide receiver announced Monday on UStream.
Moss, who holds the record for most touchdowns in a single season (23 with the 2007 New England Patriots) last played in 2010 with the Tennessee Titans. He had a lackluster season, and announced he was retiring last August. But with his proclamation made Monday, his 35th birthday, it seems like Moss has unfinished business on the field.
Chris Carter thinks his old Minnesota Vikings teammate is up for the challenge. Carter says Moss can run a 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.
But which team would be willing to put up with Randy Moss’s antics? Moss has a long rap sheet riddled with fines for bad behavior, like squirting a referee with a water bottle and pretending to moon an opposing team’s fans. He has also been accused of quitting on his teammates, like when he walked off the field with time remaining on the clock in a 2005 loss to the Washington Redskins.
And then there are Randy Moss’s legal troubles. In 2002, Moss faced two misdemeanors in Minneapolis after knocking over a traffic cop with his car while in possession of marijuana.
Even so, that hasn’t stopped the sports rumor mills from speculating on possible suitors. According to a report, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets are curious about a future with Moss.
