Modesty has never been the strong suit for Vikings legendary wide receiver Randy Moss. He is known for his larger than life personality on and off the football field. He’s now an analyst for Fox Sports and had some interesting comments about his current physical ablility.
“If I had to go out here and feed my family by getting back on that football field, I could still put up 15 or 16 touchdowns,” Moss said. “I can still play the game. I don’t know what a lot of people saw last year, but I know what it looked like. It looked like I was old and that they were trying to keep me fresh and things like that, but I can still play the game of football.”
Fifteen touchdowns is a hefty sum. As a matter of fact, through 15 games, the league leader in the NFL has 15 touchdowns. And that is hybrid tight end/wide receiver Jimmy Graham in New Orleans. Three wide receivers are tied for being the league leader in receiving touchdowns at the position at 12.
Don’t look for Moss to try to back up that statement though. He’s retired.
“I’m not going to play the game of football, but for me to be able to still go out and still catch touchdowns, I can still run. I can still catch. I still got vision,” he said. “If I still got those things, if I still have the things that God blessed me with, then why can’t I be able to go out there and put up 15 or 16 touchdowns? I can still do it. Age is just a number to me.”
