Randy Moss, out of NFL since 2012, entertains possible return

MINNEAPOLIS -- As it stands, Randy Moss would be eligible to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. On Sunday, though, one of the most dominant receivers in NFL history indicated he might have interest in pushing that date back.

Moss, a six-time Pro Bowler who now works as an analyst for Fox, said on the network's pregame show Sunday night that he hasn't lost the itch to play in the NFL, adding he'd been "working out with a few guys in the offseason."

"I have been retired for the last two years, but you never know," said Moss, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2012. "But it's the love of the game that I still have inside of me."

Asked by Fox host Curt Menefee if he was thinking about a return, Moss smiled and said, "Hey, I don't know. The sky's the limit for me, Curt. So we'll just have to wait and see."

Moss, who ranks third in NFL history in receiving yards and second in receiving touchdowns, last played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2012. He turns 39 in February and made his last Pro Bowl appearance in 2007, when he caught 23 touchdown passes for the New England Patriots team that went 16-0 in the regular season and lost Super Bowl XLII.
