Default Randy Moss Retires

Quote:
Randy Moss(notes), one of the NFL's greatest all-time receivers, will not be back for a fourteenth season. Adam Schefter quotes Moss's agent, Joel Segal, as saying, "After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he's decided to retire."
Moss spent last year on three teams. He started with the Patriots, was traded to the Vikings, who then released him, allowing him to sign with the Titans. It wasn't a great year for Moss, but just one year before that, he was excellent, putting up 1,200 yards and 13 touchdowns in New England.
His retirement comes as a surprise. Not a shock, maybe, since last season was so disastrous, but up until just yesterday, there were rumors that the Jets were interested in his services. That fell through when the Jets signed Plaxico Burress(notes) instead, but I doubt the Jets were the only team to kick his tires. His agent's comments would seem to indicate that, too.
If this is indeed the end for Moss (and one couldn't be blamed if one thought there was a good chance Moss would change his mind at some point), he's left a permanent mark on the game. I don't know if there's anyone else's Hall of Fame enshrinement speech I'd rather see than his.
So long, Randy. You were straight cash, homey. Enjoy this video. It's actually a nice little career retrospective.

didn't expect him to retire either, but his attitude was shit.

His physical abilities were outstanding, but I guess if you don't have the right mindset even a great athlete can be shit

Wrote him off immediately for wearing shades thru the entire Heisman Ceremony... however I don't care if Kanye West wears his thru the MTV Video Awards.
