Reports surfaced last week that retired NFL all-star and future hall of famer Randy Moss has vowed to come out of retirement and make a comeback by returning to the league. Moss played in the NFL for 13 seasons until his retirement in 2010. He was selected in the first round of the 1998 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings as the 21st pick. Throughout his career, Randy Moss has set various records, including earning 7 Pro Bowl selections. Moss is considered to be one of the top five best wide receivers to have ever played the game of football. Currently, he has 954 receptions, 14,858 receiving yards, and 153 touchdowns. Although Moss has had a very productive and “hall of fame” career, he also has a dark cloud of various controversies that have plagued him throughout his time in the NFL.
It has been well over a week now since Superbowl XLVI was played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 in a thrilling competition that ended with a hail Mary pass that was thrown incomplete into the back of the end zone. The Giants won the Superbowl for the 4th time in franchise history, and quarterback Eli Manning (younger brother of Peyton Manning) won his second Superbowl championship. Ironically, Eli Manning played and won the Superbowl in his brother’s home stadium, which is the home of the Indianapolis Colts. Although it was a thrilling Superbowl to watch (ratings proved that more than 111 million people watched the event), football fans were curious to know the status of quarterback Peyton Manning’s neck injury. Will he return to play for the Indianapolis Colts, or will he retire?
