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

So, Randy is letting the fans know he wants to play the next series of downs. That must be comforting to his future teammates.

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

   This is just stereo typing. No matter what player it is MOSS is the man. He's the best WR to ever play the game. No, not Rice and Moss will break his records....Give him another 4-5 yrs. I'm a Pats fan...He was the best thing in NE ,despite all the bs in the locker room or life. He wants to play give him another chance NE Pats. He deserves it!!! Moss in that situation in the SB,not Welker,Hernandez or Branch...I guarantee Moss makes that catch and NE wins the superbowl. They should have won in the first place,but that last minute put a damper on milking a 2 point lead. Bring back Randy NE !!!!!!!

Randy Moss: 'I wanna play football'

It’s too bad what has become of this guy. Randy was one of my favorite players until he started giving up. He was on pace to beat Jerry Rice’s record for career touchdowns and he only played briefly with a hall of fame quarterback (Tom Brady) when Rice had Hall of Fame Quarterbacks (Montana and Young) for almost his entire career. If Randy comes back I hope he succeeds and somehow corrects his tarnished character. I have no doubt he can still play unlike T. Owens who below out his knee.   But why would any NFL team take a chance on him with all his antics and detrimental off the field behavior.

Signing Randy Moss should come with a warning label that reads: "Signing this locker room virus may be hazardous to your teams chemestry and playoff chances.  Sign at your own risk."
