(SANTA CLARA, CALIF) — Wide Receiver Randy Moss is back in the NFL after agreeing to a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
Moss retired in August 2011. He last played in the NFL during the 2010 season, a season where Moss ended up playing for three different teams. He ended that season in Tennessee where he caught six balls in eight games.
Through his career, Moss has often been criticized for not always playing his hardest. When Moss has had the desire to play, he has been one of the best receivers of all-time. He is currently tied for second on the all-time touchdown reception list with 153 and has compiled 954 catches throughout his 13 NFL seasons.
Ex teammate and current ESPN NFL Analyst Cris Carter seems to think Moss, 35, will be good for San Francisco.
“He’s healthy,” Carter said. “He hadn’t been healthy for a long time. He’s never had any significant injuries. Mentally he is in a good state where he wants to make a contribution to a football team…the only goal he hasn’t accomplished in the NFL is winning the Championship.”
In San Francisco he might have a good chance at winning that Championship. The 49ers made it to the NFC Championship Game last year. If Moss can match any of his past successes, he would provide the Niners with arguably one of the best deep threats of all-time.
This will be Moss’ second stint in the Bay Area. He played the 2005 and 2006 seasons for the Oakland Raiders.
