Minnesota Vikings fans have a soft spot in their heart when it comes to wide receiver Randy Moss. Ever since retiring from the NFL following his 2012 season with the San Francisco 49ers, he has been a regular part of the sports media and has also been engaging in several charitable events.
However, a recent inquiry to Randy Moss has some eyebrows raised as to the chances of him making a return to the National Football League.
Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston recently spoke with Moss about whether or not he would ever consider coming out of retirement. Most likely, Reiss was expecting Moss to say that he’s retired and will not be returning to football. However, that wasn’t the answer that he received.

The Sporting News took the speculation one step further, saying that the 38 year old Randy Moss would be a good fit for the Carolina Panthers following the news that their star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin’s ACL injury would make him unavailable for the entire 2015 NFL season, leaving quarterback Cam Newton with few good targets for his passes.
Whether or not Randy Moss is actually seriously considering coming out of retirement is unknown at this point. And the speculation that he would be interested in going to Carolina is just that: speculation.
Personally, I don’t expect Moss to be suiting up for an NFL team any time in the near future.
But hey, like Randy Moss himself says: “I would say never, but ahhhhh … let’s leave it at that.”
