Almost a month after he announced his shocking retirement from the NFL, Randy Moss is making news once again. According to Chip Fontanazza of the West Virginia MetroNews, Moss would reportedly come out of retirement if the New England Patriots showed interest in signing him.
The Patriots decided to part ways with Moss in the middle of last season, citing that Moss was a locker room distraction. Bill Belichick and company traded Moss to the Minnesota Vikings for a second-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Moss was also lacking production on the field, as he only caught nine passes for 139 yards and three touchdowns in four games with New England last season. Moss of course went on to be waived by Minnesota and finished out the season with the Tennesse Titans.
Despite his lackluster 2010, there is no denying that Randy Moss is one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. In his career, Moss has caught 954 passes for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns. Moss spent almost four seasons in New England and became Tom Brady's favorite targets. If the reports are true, Bill Belichick might have a look; given that he's already decided to give Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth a shot a redemption.
