Planning For Retirement
February 14, 2012 by staff
Planning For Retirement, Randy Moss once said, “I play when I want to play.”
Six months after retiring, the veteran NFL wide receiver wants to play again.
Moss announced on a webchat Monday – his 35th birthday – that he’s planning a comeback.
Moss retired in August after compiling 14,858 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns in 13 seasons.
He last played in 2010, getting traded by the Patriots to the Vikings before finishing the season with the Titans. That year he had career lows of 28 catches for 393 yards.
Moss’ 23 TD catches in 2007 that helped the Patriots reach the Super Bowl are a single-season NFL record.
His 10 seasons of at least 1,000 yards are second only to Jerry Rice’s 14. He’s tied with Terrell Owens for second on the career TD receptions list, well behind Rice’s 197.
COWBOYS: Dallas hired Joe Baker, who spent the previous three seasons with the Bucs, as an assistant secondary coach.
GIANTS: Former Bucs tight end Ryan Purvis and former University of South Florida defensive end Craig Marshall signed reserve/future contracts with the Super Bowl champs.
JAGUARS: Jacksonville hired former St. Louis Cardinals executive Mark Lamping as team president. Lamping, who spent the past four years as president and CEO of MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, will be in charge of all non-football facets of the organization. He will report directly to owner Shahid Khan.
PACKERS: Alex Van Pelt, the Bucs’ quarterbacks coach the past two seasons, was hired as Green Bay’s running backs coach.
STEELERS: General manager Kevin Colbert said the team has had “internal discussions” on what to do with Hines Ward, the franchise’s all-time leading receiver, but no decision has been made. NFL.com reported last week the Steelers were planning to release the 35-year-old Ward, who took on a diminished role last season behind Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders.
