Randy Moss couldn’t be happier with his decision to come out of retirement a sign a one-year deal with the 49ers.
“It’s just a feeling I haven’t really felt in a while,” the 35-year-old Moss said in his first training camp interview with reporters. “Just being around a group of young guys and it makes me feel good that I can really not look at my age, and just feel young. So I have a little pep in my step. It really feels good being around the guys.”
Moss has had an up-and-down career, at times proving to be one of the greatest receivers in NFL history, but at others being a divisive influence in the locker room. In 2010, he was traded from the Patriots to the Vikings, then released by Minnesota and signed by Tennessee for the final four games of the season.
Moss walked away after that season, although he says that decision “wasn’t really to do with the game. One thing that I have learned is that people don’t like the truth, so I’ll just wait until my book comes out just to see why I did walk away from the game for a year.”
