Is Randy Moss Plotting a Return to the NFL?

When an all-time great mentions coming out of retirement, we’re forced to listen. 

When Randy Moss said “I have not lost the itch” before Sunday night’s pre-season game between the 49ers and Cowboys, he wasn’t talking about a stubborn case of VD.  The second greatest receiver to ever the play the game (sorry T.O.) was talking about football. 

Three years after his retirement, Moss continues to publicly flirt with a return to the game, but it never seemed as serious as it did when he told fellow Fox broadcaster Curt Menefee, “The sky’s the limit for me, Curt. So we’ll just have to wait and see.” Moss mentioned that he worked out a lot over the off-season and last week he was at a Patriots practice where Tom Brady tried to get him to run a few pass plays for fun.

The reality is that Moss probably could contribute this season in the NFL, but at no where near the levels we’re used to seeing. In his last season, Moss only managed 28 catches and three touchdowns, and that was three years ago. Still, anyone who appreciates good football and good football personalties can agree that Moss should at least attempt a comeback. If for nothing else, so we can see one last touchdown celebration.
