According to his agent, Randy Moss, one of the most prolific wide receivers in the history of the National Football League, has decided to walk away from the game.
"After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he's decided to retire," Joel Segal said earlier today.

Unlike the majority of people, I'm actually not that shocked to hear this. At only 34, there's no doubt Moss still has some football left in him. However, it was obvious to me during the second half of last season that he never got over being released by New England, so if his heart was no longer in it, this was the right thing to do.
It's hard to say how history will remember Randy Moss. I for one, will never forget the 2007 season. What Moss and the rest of the Patriots did that year, despite coming up short in the Super Bowl, was nothing short of extraordinary.
Hopefully, future generations will remember him for the spectacular receiver he was, and not the troubled soul that at times he seemed to be.
