Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

Former NFL star wide receiver Randy Moss announced today on his 35th birthday that he wants to halt his retirement and play next season. "I wanna play football," Moss said on UStream "Your boy is going to come back here and play some football, so I'm really excited. I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

Moss announced his retirement in August through his agent, Joel Segal.

Speculation about whether he would return to the New England Patriots immediately commenced.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has said that he would love to play with Moss again. However, Moss could have other options depending on whether he can still run.

A former Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick, Moss has played for 13 seasons. That includs two stints with the Vikings, a short-lived time with the Oakland Raiders, a successful run with the New England Patriots and an unproductive season with the Tennessee Titans.

He owns the single-season touchdown catch record with 23 in 2007 when he was with the Patriots and the single-season touchdown record for a rookie with 17 in 1998.

For his career, he has 954 catches for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns.

However, he was with three teams in 2010: traded by the Patriots to the Vikings, cut by the Vikings and signed by the Titans. He finished with a career-low 28 catches for 393 yards and five touchdowns.

Moss said that his family is fine with him resuming his football career. "It's fine, whatever you wanna do," Moss said. "Faith, family, and football, that's my M.O., bro."
