If it wasn’t already clear, it now is. The Hall of Fame career of Randy Moss has ended.
During the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game between the Colts and Giants, Moss told Joe Buck of FOX that Moss won’t be returning to play football, despite an ongoing rash of receiver injuries.
“I think at 36, I think I’m where I need to be right now,” Moss said. ”I’m enjoying my family life. I’m enjoying being on FOX with this great cast and just moving on with the next chapter in my life.”
Buck also revisited, without providing the background, a connection with Moss that happened in January 2005. Specifically, Moss pretended to moon the Lambeau Field crowd after a postseason touchdown, and Buck called it a “disgusting act.”
“I played the game, you analyzed it,” Moss said. ”You said what you said, I did what I did, we moved on from it. Now we’re working together. How about that?”
Yes, they’re working together. But they’re not really working together. And we doubt they’ll be hanging out at the FOX commissary, or pretty much anywhere else.
But if they do, here’s hoping they invite Artie Lange along for the ride.
