Monday is Randy Moss’ birthday, and he had an announcement to commemorate the occasion: He wants to end his brief retirement and return to professional football in 2012.
“I wanna play football,” Moss said on UStream on Monday morning. “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.”
His agent, Joel Segal, wouldn’t go into his client’s available options.
“Randy and I have discussed it,” Segal said of Moss coming out of retirement. “He still has his fire and he’s looking forward to playing football. He’s excited.”
Moss posted on his Twitter page: “Now back to biz!! There’s good an bad an u have to b ready for both! its in gods hand now.”
Moss abruptly retired on Aug. 1 with a one-sentence statement from his agent, Joel Segal. But the ink had scarcely dried on the stories listing his career accomplishments — 954 receptions for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns over 13 seasons — when reports began to surface that Moss would be willing to return if the right situation presented itself. Tom Brady, with whom he connected for a single-season record 23 touchdowns for the Patriots in 2007, even said he’d welcome Moss back to New England.
