Randy Moss wants back into the NFL, announcing online Monday — his 35th birthday — that his one-season retirement was really a sabbatical.
The timing puts him back on the radar just as teams have started formulating their draft and free-agency boards. Nice touch, injecting himself back into the consciousness of the NFL right as teams are figuring out whether they need rookie or veteran help at wideout.
Joel Segal, Moss’ agent, said teams have already called to gather preliminary information about Moss following his declaration. The teams mainly wanted to know what type of shape Moss is in, Segal said, adding that this is something that’s yet to be determined. The agent said no plans have been formulated regarding Moss’ path back to the NFL.
Moss didn’t generate much free agent interest following a disastrous 2010 season that saw him get traded by New England, cut by the Vikings and barely used by the Titans. But he could be physically and mentally fresh.
