Randy Moss is hoping to make a return to football, the receiver announced on Monday.
Speaking on a UStream chat for his birthday (he turned 35 Monday), the receiver said he would like to come back and play in the NFL. He added that there is no guarantee he would be able to make a team, however.
"Your boy is going to come back and play some football," Moss said at the end of his 57-minute chat with fans, which hit on a number of subjects.
Moss — who ranks ninth all time with 954 receptions, fifth all time with 14,858 receiving yards and second to only Jerry Rice with 153 touchdown catches — said that he sat out last season for personal reasons. Those are behind him now, he said, and he would like to finish his football career the right way.
Moss' last season in the NFL, 2010, was a tumultuous one, to say the least. He was traded from the Patriots to the Vikings after Week Three but could not help Minnesota on a run to the playoffs. After several incidents in the Vikings' locker room, he was released and picked up by the Titans for the final eight games of the campaign. He ended up with just 28 receptions in 11 games.
"I just wanna go to a team and play some football," Moss said at the end of the chat.
