Randy Moss Coming Out of Retirement…What Else is New?
So it’s been going around that wide receiver, Randy Moss is coming out of retirement to try and play again for a team. Supposedly there are teams like the New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers, are interested in the 35 year old receiver. My biggest question to this is who actually believed that Moss was seriously considering retirement because he wasn’t picked up last season? This in my opinion was inevitable. Moss, being a great receiver already is an athlete, an athlete with fire in him to still play the game. He has that competitive spirit to want him to keep going since he feels he still has some game left in him. Not only that, let’s take a look at the receivers stats and accomplishments, over the course of his career, Moss had at least one catch for 50-plus yards every year with catches for over 70 yards in the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
The numbers don’t lie. He is a great receiver who should be considered for a spot on any NFL team. The other question raised is, can teams handle the baggage that comes alone with having “Randy Moss” on your team. What is the locker room situation going to be? How are players who are younger and faster than Moss going to feel having him on their team possibly taking the starting spot? It’s a give and take situation, but there is no doubt about it that Moss is a producer and would benefit any team on the field.
