Despite reports that he’s crazy fit, Randy Moss is calling it quits. And it’s probably for the best. Moss rejuvenated his career with the Pats, catching 250 passes for 3,765 yards and 47 touchdowns in his first three seasons with the team. That production dropped dramatically last year. After the first four games of the season, Moss put up nine catches for 139 yards and three scores. In his final game with New England, Moss didn’t even catch a pass. He wore out his welcome, and the Pats shipped him to the Vikings for third round pick.

The return to Minny didn’t last long. Moss played in only four games. He caught 13 passes, scored twice and acted pretty douchey. The Vikings cut him and 19 teams past him up on waivers before he was claimed by the Titans. In eight games with Tennessee, Moss caught six passes for 80 yards and didn’t find the endzone.

Moss was looking to go to a contender this season, but apparently he didn’t get any offers from teams with a chance to win. He didn’t want to the TO thing, bouncing from crap team to crap team on one-year deals, so he decided to hang ‘em up.

Moss exits the scene with some pretty sweet numbers (954 passes for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns). He set the single season TD reception record in 2007 (23), after previously setting the record for TD receptions by a rookie in 1998 (17). He’s second all time in career TD receptions (tied with TO), career 100 yard games (64) and 1,000+ yard receiving seasons (10).

The thing we’ll miss the most about Randy is his way with words. From “straight cash, homey” to smoking weed “every blue moon,” Moss had a knack for expressing himself. Sure he had run-ins with traffic control officers, caterers, water bottles and refs, coaches and players, and yea, at times he lacked effort and professionalism, but Moss was still fun to watch and always entertaining in interviews and press conferences.
