Randy Moss pays tribute with his Hall of Fame tie
Randy Moss used a piece of his Hall of Fame wardrobe to send a powerful message.
Moss was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio on Saturday night. During the evening, he wore a tie that had the names of several people stitched in. The tie paid tribute to several black victims who were wrongfully killed.

“What I wanted to be able to express with my tie is to let these families know that they’re not alone,” Moss said of his tie during an appearance on NFL Network. “I’m not here voicing, but by these names on my tie, and a big platform as the Pro Football Hall of Fame … there’s a lot of stuff going on in our country, and I just want to let these family members know that they’re not alone.”
Moss’ actions were noticed by many and well-received. The tie also could go a long way towards making up for his comments last year on those protesting racism.
