The New Orleans Saints held a workout with Veteran wide receiver Randy Moss on Tuesday, his first since saying he was done being retired and the initial reports suggest it went very well than anticipated and Mr. Moss looked a lot like the “old Randy.”
The 35-year-old reportedly performed the 40-yard dash in the 4.39 to 4.4 range and ran routes while hauling in nearly 50 passes.
Moss hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2010 and on his 35th birthday the Pro Bowl receiver announced his hopeful return to the NFL. He has played 13 years in the NFL, which includes eight years with the Minnesota Vikings over two stints, two years with the Oakland Raiders, 4 years with the New England Patriots and part of one season with the Tennessee Titans.
Moss’ career was impressive before his retirement, racking up 954 receptions for 14,858 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns. He is tied up with Terrell Owens for second all-time in touchdown receptions. His 154 total touchdowns rank fourth all-time while his 954 catches are 10th all-time.
Randy holds the single season touchdown reception record of 23, set in 2007 and NFL single season touchdown reception record for a rookie of 17, set back in 1998.
Even at age 35 and not playing in 2011, Moss appears to make a big return for someone in 2012. So do you think Randy Moss would be a welcomed edition for the New Orleans Saints?
