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

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.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

Patriot fans really do crack me up.  If you guys had Randy Moss, you wouldn't have made it to the SuperBowl.  Not the other way around.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

You can actually say that the completely ineffective Ocho Cinco is partly to blame for the Pats losing the SB.
I mean come on man.  Welker drops the ball, and he is usually pretty solid when called upon, but I'd rather have a bigger, faster WR run that out pattern and try to come down with that pass.
If Ocho couldn't do it then that only tells you that BB had absolutely ZERO faith in the guy.  He will not be in a Pats uniform next year.
At least with Moss you know you can count on him to run that route and probably come down with that ball.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

Randy Moss could have helped the Patriots this year.  Could you imagine Moss, Gronk, Hernadez and Welker lined up as Red-Zone targets?

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

If the Patriots had Randy Moss this season, they probably win the Super Bowl.  They nearly did without Moss or a healthy Gronk.  If Moss is coming back the Patriots would be on his list, the only question is if New England has Moss on theirs.
