Moss did a USTREAM chat Monday and said he wants back in the NFL. (
By Will Brinson

There's really nothing more surprising in life than finding yourself watching Randy Moss do a live USTREAM chat at 10:00 a.m. on a Monday morning. Except for this: Randy Moss announcing that he wants to return to the NFL while chatting live with fans on USTREAM.

Latest NFL News, Notes

"I wanna play football," Moss said Monday morning. "Your boy is going to come back here and play some football, so I'm really excited. I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

It just so happens that Monday is Moss' birthday, so he gave back to fans by hopping on the Internet and holding a live chat. He seemed genuinely surprised by the fact that 100-plus people were watching around 9:45 a.m. ET, but was straight-up shocked when the number swelled to over 500 by the end of the hour, thanks to various people like our own Mike Freeman sending out links on Twitter.

Moss' live chat was both bizarre and entertaining. At one point, he pulled out a bag filled with all the hair he recently cut off and said it smells like "sauerkraut."

But, again, the most important thing is that Moss said he's coming back to football in 2012. Or, at least, wants to come back to football. There are teams (the Vikings, Raiders and Titans most notably) that can be crossed off the list.

Perhaps the Patriots are too much of a stretch for Moss. But there will be someone interested in taking a flier on Moss, particularly if he's as motivated as he sounded on Monday morning. On his birthday. During a USTREAM chat.

Dear Randy Moss,
Please go back to whatever rock you crawled out from under and don't come back.
A true football fan.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

I don't understand how anybody could be stupid and childish enough to say that possibly the best WR in NFL history was bad for the NFL.  Bringing excitement, many new fans, jersey and ticket sales and breaking records is not bad for the NFL.  Moss didn't even have very many off the field issues, and people seem to remember more imaginary ones than ones actually happened.  His biggest and only problem of real concern was his 'play when I want to' attitude.  Even that's funny because when he played only 75% of the time he was still a top 5 WR in the NFL.

Such a silly comment to put moss on that list, he is top 5 dead or alive.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

A friend of mine played with moss and said that moss was flat out the most frugal guy he ever met. My guess is that moss is not broke but saw how tough the hall of fame was on receivers like tim brown and chris carter. Moss is the best that i have ever seen and i watched jerry rice from the time he was at mississippi valley state.  I do agree that a talent is a terrible thing to waste, but if ricky williams can play that long then moss is a shoe in to come back. Long live the vertical passing game. As for team mates. Brady said that he would love to play with moss again. I would like to see him in Houston or carolina. I even think that dalton would welcome him in Chad (i cant say ochocinco) Johnson's old stomping ground. I just don't drink hater-ade.

Agree AF Moss has been a bonafide jerk most of his career.
