Randy Moss’ presenter will be none other than his son

NFL: NFL Honors-Red Carpet Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

A few weeks ago, we learned that Minnesota Vikings legend Randy Moss was just the third wide receiver to be granted entrance into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year on the ballot, joining Steve Largent and Jerry Rice in doing so. On Tuesday, he revealed who will actually be doing his introduction when he is enshrined this August, and he didn’t have to look far to find him.

Moss’ presenter in Canton at the Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony will be none other than his son, Thaddeus. Young Thaddeus is following in his father’s football footsteps, as he started his career as a tight end at North Carolina State in 2016 before transferring to Louisiana State last spring.

As we all would have expected, Moss states in the video that his first choice would have been his former coach, Dennis Green. Green was the one that got the Vikings to pull the trigger on drafting Moss in 1998 when he fell to the 21st overall pick in the draft. Unfortunately, with Green’s recent passing, that is no longer a possibility. With that, Moss turned to his son to do the honors.

Congratulations to Thaddeus Moss on being selected to present his father for his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
