As expected, former NFL star Randy Moss is taking a page out of Brett Favre’s playbook.
According to a personal video posted on UStream, Moss is unretiring and plans on playing for a team in need this upcoming season.
“I just wanna go to a team and play some football,” Moss said in an appearance commemorating his 35th birthday[.]
“I said I had a surprise for y’all,” Moss added not long after showing off a bag of his hair and pointing out that it smelled “musty,” like “sauerkraut.”
Maybe more to the point is that Moss shed some light on his decision to walk away from the game last August, citing off the field issues. It seems those issues have been ironed out: faith before all, family before football; things Moss appears to have in line.
“Faith, family, and football, that’s my M.O., bro,” Moss said. “Your boy be back for the upcoming season.”
At 35, here’s to hoping the Moss that made New England blush is the one plotting the comeback. Many felt his sudden exodus from the sport after 12 seasons was too soon. And maybe it was. The seven-time Pro Bowler, who still holds the single-season record for touchdown receptions (23, set in 2007), walked away last August with 954 receptions, 14,858 yards and 153 career touchdowns to his name. Only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice has more (197).
