Randy Moss Announces His NFL Comeback

One of the greatest wide receivers of the last generation is coming back. Former NFL wide receiver Randy Moss announced on a Ustream chat today that he will be returning to the NFL and is planning on playing next season.

Your boy be back for the upcoming season

The announcement ends one of the shortest retirements since Brett Favre. Moss left the NFL last season after finishing one of the most disappointing stints of his entire career with the Tennessee Titans in 2010-11. Moss played 8 games with the Titans, only started 4, and finished 6 receptions, for 80 yards, and no touchdowns.

Moss’s final season as a whole was probably the most turbulent of his career. Moss played for three teams all season and finished the season with 5 TDs, after playing all sixteen games without a bye week. The 5 touchdowns was the lowest number of TDs in Moss’ 12 seasons as an NFL WR.

Moss had a lot of nice things to say about Myra Kraft during his broadcast. It would not surprise me to see Moss try and politic his way back to the New England Patriots. Moss left the Patriots amidst a ton of rumors about arguments with him and Tom Brady, as well as the coaching staff. In his three seasons prior, he had double digit TDs each season, including 23 in 2007.

It will be interesting to see who takes a shot on Moss next season. One would point to the lack of interest in Terrell Owens and look at that as a statement of teams not willing to put up with the diva attitude of an aging receiver. However, Owens is bringing an injury, numerous reports on TMZ.com, and age with him while Moss has remained out of the spotlight and would be coming back healthy. I think there will be some serious interest in what Moss has left in the tank.

From a fantasy football standpoint, I’d absolutely take a shot on him depending upon where he ends up. He is likely going to be used as a deep threat wherever he goes, which could mean a lot of points if the right situation works out. The upside here is that you will probably be able to get Moss in the later rounds which means there could be some high upside with minimal risk.

If not the Patriots, I could see the Philadelphia Eagles taking a shot on him. A few years back the Eagles were neck and neck in the running to sign Moss with the Patriots, before he chose to return to New England. Andy Reid reportedly had interest in bringing in Plaxico Burress last season and Reid is a guy that will give someone a second chance. The Vick-Moss combination has the chance to be lethal if everyone can keep their head on straight. Of course that is a lot to ask for from a receiver that caused problems on three teams in one season the last time he played in the league.

Get your popcorn ready!
