In a move that has become sadly familiar to football fans, Randy Moss has mailed it in on another season because he’s unhappy. We’ve seen this act before, but I don’t think we’re going to see it again. That would require Moss playing at a high level for a portion of next season before having a game with one or no catches and giving up. I’m not convinced Moss will even be given an opportunity to do that.
Moss has been held without a catch seven times in his 13-year career. All but one of those games have come in his either his final game or final season with a team. He had two zero catch games in 2004 during his final season with the Vikings. In his seven previous seasons with Minnesota, he had never gone a game without a catch and had only caught one ball on four separate occasions. Moss also sat out three games that season with a hamstring injury. Before that, he had never missed a game since his career began in 1998.
