New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the only player in the league with more than 12 touchdown catches this season.
Moss has not played since catching two passes for 41 yards in the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in last year’s Super Bowl. The time away from the game hasn’t lessened Moss’ confidence.
“If I had to go out here and feed my family by getting back on that football field, I could still put up 15 or 16 touchdowns,” Moss told his current employer, FOX Sports. “I can still play the game.”
Moss has had just four seasons in his career where he has posted at least 15 touchdowns. He caught 17 touchdowns in 1998 and 2003 and 15 touchdowns in 2000 with the Minnesota Vikings. Moss’ career-high of 23 touchdowns came while with the New England Patriots in 2007.
Moss said he’s not going to play, just that he would still have the ability to produce if he had an opportunity.
“I can still run. I can still catch. I still got vision. If I still got those things, if I still have the things that God blessed me with, then why can’t I be able to go out there and put up 15 or 16 touchdowns?” Moss said. “I can still do it. Age is just a number to me.”
Moss is third all-time with 15,292 yards and second in touchdowns with 156.
