Randy Moss Retires: The Top 20 Receivers in NFL History – Receiving Touchdowns
Randy Moss is retiring. Supposedly. The word “retire” now encompasses a number of definitions: ending a career for good, or temporarily, or leveraging the work-stoppage for a better employment situation.
Anyway, shoe-in Hall of Famer Randy Moss is second all time, soon to be third, in receiving touchdowns with 153. He’s tied with other shoe-in, Terrell Owens. Controversy or not, Moss and Owens are two of the greatest receivers to ever play the game. We’re talking top 5 and maybe even top 3.
Check out tight end Tony Gonzalez in 10th.
