Randy Moss says he could still catch 15 or 16 touchdowns


Wide receiver Randy Moss has moved on from his playing days and focused on his broadcasting career. Moss did say that if he was still playing in the NFL, he could be one of the highest scoring receivers in the league.

“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 told his current employer, FOX Sports. “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.

“€œI’€™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. 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.”

It looks like NFL executives disagree though, or have decided he isn’t worth the trouble. In his final season he caught 28 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns.
