Randy Moss’ agent Joel Segal has said the 34-year old Moss will retire instead of playing this season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
“After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he’s decided to retire,” said Segal.
After all the talk of Randy being in “freakish shape” this off-season, he will unfortunately, hang up the cleats.
I still believe he can play in this league, and thought Philadelphia or Baltimore would have been a good place for Moss to thrive.
There was also rumors about him landing in the Big Apple with “Gang Green.” That option died after Plaxico Burress signed with the Jets on Sunday.
The Hall of Fame receiver always had that “chip on his shoulder” since he dropped in the ’98 draft (21st overall), coming out of Marshall.
His swagger and confidence to dominate was apparent early, as he registered a rookie-record 17 touchdown receptions in Minnesota.
In 2007, he set the NFL record for touchdown catches, with 23, in New England. He’s tied for second on the NFL’s all-time list with 153 career receiving scores.
Last season, he got traded twice, playing for three teams – Patriots, Vikings, Titans.
