Randy Moss joins ESPN’s pregame shows

AP

Just says after saying he wasn’t sure if he would be joining ESPN, Randy Moss has done just that.

Moss is joining ESPN’s two NFL pregame shows, Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown. Those shows have undergone a change this offseason, with Keyshawn Johnson and Cris Carter departing, Mike Ditka taking on a reduced role and Matt Hasselbeck and Charles Woodson joining the shows.

ESPN becomes Moss’s new home after he spent the last three years working for FOX Sports, doing pregame work there and appearing on other programs.

The 39-year-old Moss played for the Vikings, Raiders, Patriots and Titans from 1998 to 2010, retired for one year, and then retired for good after spending the 2012 season with the 49ers.

  1. Believe it or not, Moss is a funny dude. And his FB IQ is off the charts, according to Belichick. Looking forward to it. Did not enjoy CCarter.

  2. I like Randy. Plenty of people will knock him for a million different reasons, most of them valid. But I will always remember his rookie year and his career as a whole in a positive light. I want to hear what he has to say too, as long as he promises not to play a typical TV sports journalist game, and ask the hard hitting questions and call it as he sees it. Like it or not.

    He should have been the GOAT, but he didn’t want to work for it.

    Almost 1000 receptions, 15,000+ yards, 150+ TDs…all of that with only two full seasons spent with a HOF QB, and never cheating with stick-um.

    Obviously he had tremendous natural talent, but I imagine he still had to work pretty hard to put up those first ballot HOF numbers. Randy’s biggest problems were he made it look effortless, and, of course, his frequent loose lips.

  4. Imagine the numbers he and Brady would have put up if they played together for their entire careers?

  5. Randy’s football IQ is crazy high. Woodson and Hasselbeck are great. Shoudl make it a much show. They should just put Ditka out to pasture however.

  6. Wanna have a good laugh? Google the kid with the Randy Moss mask. I was there. The stadium went nuts. Turns out the kid was 12, and bought the mask in the pro shop before the game

  7. I watched him on Fox a bit last year, he is pretty good in my opinion…he is not a blowhard at all…his commentary seemed insightful and even…unlike Ray Lewis…CC just seemed too animated…Keyshawn didn’t really add much worthwhile commentary, thus why he was replaced

  8. Personality for days, and smarter than most give him credit for. This hire should wash the taste of stuttering Ray Lewis and the despicable Chris Carter out of people’s mouths finally.

  9. I had questioned several of Al Davis’ decisions in his later years. But with the horrible trade for Randy Moss, I came to the sad realization that Al had totally lost it (which made the drafting of JaBustus a few years later totally unsurprising).

  10. scariest offensive player anyone had to defend for 10 or 12 straight years. defenses couldn’t stop him AND they actually feared him with all that speed, ball skills, size, hands, and IQ. seemed like corners liked the challenge of Megatron but, they actually hated covering randy i think. like they saw megatron as a challenge and with randy, it was drawing the shortest straw.

  11. well my guess is he will probably quit on them if he does not get enough camera time….some things never change.

  12. Straight cash homie. Joe Buck is a condescending ignoramus if he thinks a fully clothed, FAKE moon is a “disgusting act”. Especially if he’s ever seen what happens to the Vikings bus when it arrives to multiple examples of the real thing.

    With all do respect to Jerry Rice, Randy is the GOAT. Here’s why
    1. Vikings set single season scoring record in 99, Patriots do the same in 07, common factor . . Moss
    2. Physical ability of a 6’4″ receiver with great hands and 4.2 speed was basically uncoverable throughout most of his career
    3. After his rookie season, division rival packer’s use at least 3 draft picks on defensive backs
