During the short webcast, Moss said he had to retire in 2011 to take care of some personal issues that were not related to football, but now?
"I want to play football."
I think it's safe to say that one place he won't be going to is Cleveland, where his BFF Brad Childress is the offensive coordinator, and presumably he'll be a programmatic non-fit in the next iteration of Chillyball.
And it's doubtful he'll come back to Minnesota, either. I mean, he's what, 36 now? His best days are behind him, but oh, were they some of the most electrifying times for the Vikings offense in franchise history, both on and off the field.
At his age, it will be interesting to see where he does end up. If the recent saga of Terrrell Owens is any barometer, interest will probably be tepid, and hopefully he won't end up playing in the IFL, a shell of his former self. I'll admit, I was one of the guys that loved the Moss trade when it went down, and was really disappointed that it didn't work out. What could've been with Favre and Moss had they played together in 2009.
Oh well, thanks for the memories, Randy. Other than the Moon Over Lambeau, this was my favorite Moss moment. The 2000 Thanksgiving Day game against Dallas. Daunte Culpepper launched what looked to be a pass that was going to be way out of bounds, but Moss someway, somehow grabbed the ball and got both feet in bounds for the score. To paraphrase Joe Buck, that was a disgusting catch by Randy Moss:
Superfreak, Superfreak, he's super freaky
