Randy Moss is a living legend. There is really no other way to put it. Whether it was his highlight-reel touchdown catches or off-field antics, he is easily one of the most polarizing superstars in NFL history. Anyone trying to argue that is just flat-out wrong.
It's hard to imagine a world without the Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver from Rand, West Virginia. He was that special on the field and is still a character away from it during retirement. Moss is one of the greatest players to ever step foot on the gridiron and his game was able to back up anything he said.
From 1998 until 2012, Moss played for the Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, Tennessee Titans, and San Francisco 49ers. He had receiving touchdowns from legendary quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Brett Favre. He made six Pro Bowls and was named First-Team All-Pro four times.
Watching his career highlights is beyond fascinating and mesmerizing. He completely torched teams like the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys in the NFC, and franchises like the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC. Moss was the most dangerous deep threat in the league, but, somehow, it still isn't nearly as entertaining as him being Mic'd Up.
Randy Moss Mic'd Up
From his rookie season with the Vikings under head coach Dennis Green to his playoff games and Super Bowl run with the Patriots, and everything in-between, Moss loved running his mouth. On game day. In practice,. During the offseason. It didn't matter. The HOF receiver always had something to say.
So in honor of his 43rd birthday on February 13, 2020, the NFL and NFL Network released 10 full minutes of Moss Mic'd Up, and it's absolutely glorious. Then again, anything involving Moss is. He never had to find the end zone to be entertaining.
The former first round pick of the 1998 NFL Draft is a gift that keeps on giving.
Randy Moss Highlights
The caption for this NFL throwback video -- one of the latest videos in the vault -- just proves how lethal he was. A 10-minute highlight reel of just 40-yard touchdown catches? Get out of here. That's beyond legendary.
After Deion Sanders and before the craziness of tight end Rob Gronkowski, there was Randy Moss. He was the real MVP and now we get to see him on ESPN every week.
