Randy Moss, At one time the top of the most glorious career of Randy Moss, that any step lofted high enough in their direction, almost inevitably, come in both hands softer than leather Corinthian.
On Monday, it seems, no new contract was lofted high enough to consider returning Moss for a 14th season National Football League. Moss has decided to retire, his agent confirmed on Monday.
His career was meteoric star, the World Federation snatch the villain – the eclectic mix of talent attenuated once in a generation of replicate portions of temper of his audience (and sometimes onfield) person.
He was a line of possibly the best in the history of professional football offenses: Minnesota Vikings 1998 and 2007 New England Patriots – No. 2 and No. 1, respectively, in NFL history for points scored in a season.
Yet it was also the man who, as a Viking in 2005, left the field before a game against the Washington Redskins had ended. The receiver, which at times seemed indifferent to run their routes so that only lacked a good drink, a bag of chips and a Barcalounger.
What is indisputable is that when he was motivated, was a receiver for all purposes, cannot be covered.
Two-time West Virginia player of the year High School in basketball, Moss combined speed of a sprinter with the height and the jump of a basketball player and the hands of insurance Hall of Fame receiver. The result was a player for the ball could not be thrown too far.
In 2007, when Moss set the record for touchdown receptions in a season (23), quarterback Tom Brady of the Patriots might have entered the firing of a backyard barbecue football game; Moss winked and said “drill “. The complex geometry of the pro-ffotball defenses was resolved by the pure athleticism Moss – leaving the hapless defenders digging into the bends.
At the beginning of last season, but his career was marked clearly in decline. The Patriots repudiated it after appearing unresolved in the preseason.
He tried to resurrect his career back in Minnesota, but only managed to get the same cut ruthlessly criticized the coaching staff when Vikings postgame comments. That ended the season with eight games without distinction with the Tennessee Titans.
He finished his career with 954 receptions, 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns – good for eighth, fifth and second in the NFL all-time list.
