Instead of finding a new team for the 2011 season, Randy Moss has decided to retire from the NFL after 13 years. He was fielding several offers from different teams across the NFL who could use his experience, but I figure he wasn’t happy about being tossed around last year like a high school whore.
This reminds me, I have a brand new Vikings purple #84 Moss jersey for sale, Reebok On-Field!
Moss’s agent, Joel Segal, said today that the receiver was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire. Segal declined to comment specifically on the offers, instead saying his client felt the time was right to step away.
Moss caught 954 passes for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns in a career spent with Minnesota, Oakland, New England and Tennessee. That production was a big drop for the receiver who ranks second only to Jerry Rice for most TD catches, 100-yard receiving games and most games with two TD catches or more. The seven-time Pro Bowler was tied with the Steelers’ Hines Ward for eighth all-time in receptions with 954. He is just one of 10 players to have 950 or more career receptions.
