Well, that’s kind of exciting. There’s been a drop off – 2010 was a waste – and he is 35 (today’s his birthday, in fact), but as late as 2009, Moss had 1,200+ yards and led the league in receiving touchdowns. So, it will be good to have him back.
Where will he play, though? That’s anyone’s guess, though most are saying it will not be with the New England Patriots.
Here’s a look at where Randy Moss ranks all time amongst the best receivers to play the game, of which he is of course one…
He’s just 46 catches away from becoming the ninth receiver in history with 1,000 receptions. By season’s end he possibly will be seventh all time.
It is likely that Moss will wind up with the second most receiving yards in NFL history. He needs less than 1,100 yards.
Moss will pass Terrell Owens this season to become sole possessor of second all-time in receiving touchdowns, behind Jerry Rice again.
It’s a recent group of receivers who lead the receiving yards per game list, but Moss clings to the top 10.

Here’s an anomaly. And it’s a surprising one. Moss is 199th in yards per reception, in the company of the likes of Jeff Chadwick.
