After becoming the first player in NFL history to play for three teams in a single season during the 2010 NFL season, WR Randy Moss decided he was going to retire from the football life. The retirement from the NFL appears to be over with Randy Moss announcing today that he wants to return to the NFL in 2012. Moss took to Ustream to make the announcement.
Randy Moss finished the 2010 season on the roster of the Tennessee Titans, after being rented for a month by the Minnesota Vikings. However, Moss started the 2010 campaign on the roster of the New England Patriots. His absence on the Patriots roster has been evident as the team lacks a serious outside, downfield threat ever since his departure. In three and one-quarter seasons with the Patriots, Moss recorded 50 touchdowns and three straight 1,000 yard receiving seasons.
With the threat of WR Wes Welker possibly sitting out with the Patriots suggesting they will place the franchise tag on the productive receiver, Moss suddenly becomes a viable option for the Patriots. Randy Moss turns 35 today and you have to wonder if he still possess the speed he once had. He is well rested, after a season removed from the rigors of the NFL.
Now it remains to be seen if New England head coach Bill Belichick is ready to work with Randy Moss once again. Moss could also be a possible candidate in San Diego if the Chargers lose out on veteran WR Vincent Jackson.
In his career, Moss has recorded 153 touchdowns and just shy of 15,000 receiving yards.
