Randy Moss retires per ESPN Breaking News.
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
I wouldn't be surprised if he comes out of retirement if the right team comes knocking with the right paycheck in hand.
Yeah, this "retirement" strikes me as "I can't find a team to play for right now." It wouldn't surprise me if he returned later in the season.
The Jets!!!! I kid. Sorta.
I heard he's working out at Oak Grove High School with some old guy wearing Wranglers.
Working out with that old guy is safer then hanging out with that old guy.
Says he's possibly just trying to get out of training camp and will believe it when the seasons over.
Such a shame so much talent but acts like a 12 year old. He'll be back.
Assuming you believe Brett Favre acts like a 4 year old.
I wish him well in whatever he does in the future, I appreciate what he did for the Pats. That being said, I don't think he's done.
Based on his effort on the field recently I would say this "breaking news" is at least one year old. Maybe more.
I've always been a big fan of Randy Moss. He's always been very misunderstood, and seems to get screwed over more than most. I suppose he already has plenty of money to retire, so maybe his heart just isn't in the game anymore.
I remember reading a story that said Randy Moss goes fishing every day in the offseason, so maybe he has decided that fishing is more enjoyable than football. Can't fault him for getting out now while he is still relatively unscathed.
I agree. I think most people overreact to what he says/does. I think he's hilarious. And a GREAT talent.
Agree. Everyone hates on him and he is just a guy who wants to win. He seems like a really normal dude to me.
I remember him sitting next to Charles at the Heisman ceremony with his shades and his rows like it was yesterday.
I also remember when all the players I watched on TV were older than me. Now every single one of them is younger. Getting old sucks.
I remember Randy Moss. He was a Heisman finalist that year when Charles Woodson won.
Moss was signed by Notre Dame but denied admission after his involvement in a nasty high school fight that left someone seriously injured. So he went to Florida State instead, and was eventually dismissed from the Seminoles. And he finally transferred to Marshall, because he could avoid sitting out a year (he had used a redshirt year in what was effectively a transfer from his NLI at Notre Dame to FSU) because Marshall was then Division I-AA.
I always wondered what happened to Moss after college.
On both statements.
Besides being one of the nastiest to ever do it, he has the greatest celebration maybe ever when he mooned the cheese heads.
That first year was magical and something that I will never forget. Moss had always been a favorite of mine since he came in the league, but to do what he did with my team, it was incredible. Like many great players, he had the Raider years, but at his height, he was one of the most electrifying receivers to play the game.
Love the shades guy
I bet he signs with a good team, if only he could get his head on straight
damn...I also tried to pick up Randy in FF even after his production started to slip.
