Randy Moss to retire

Future Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss has decided to call it a career. 

The former Vikings, Patriots and Titans receiver, who hadn't received a big-money offer in free agency, said through his agent, Joel Segal, that he will retire. 

"After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he's decided to retire," Segal told ESPN's Adam Schefter today.

Moss, 34, has played 13 seasons, producing 954 catches for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns. He is widely considered the second best receiver of all time behind former 49ers and Raiders receiver Jerry Rice.

Moss helped the 2007 Patriots achieve the only 16-0 record in NFL history. Drafted 21st overall by the Vikings in 1998, Moss played his first seven seasons in Minnesota before joining the Raiders in 2005-06. He was traded to the Patriots the following season. 

Moss fell out of favor last year with the Patriots, and wound up being traded to the Vikings. He played with New England, Minnesota and then Tennessee and produced his worst statistical season ever. He finished the 2010 season with 28 catches for 393 yards and five touchdowns. 

Moss is one of only 10 players with 950 or more career receptions.
