Former NFL superstar wide receiver Randy Moss would not shut the door on a potential return to the league when asked about the possibility.

Randy Moss won’t shut door on possible NFL comeback

Randy Moss is one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL, but he hasn’t played in a game since the 2012 season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

With the Carolina Panthers losing star second-year receiver Kelvin Benjamin to a torn ACL, fans immediately started mentioning the possibility of signing Moss. That doesn’t appear likely at this point in time, but Moss wouldn’t rule out an NFL comeback when reporters asked him about it.

“I would say never, but ahhhhh . . . let’s leave it at that,” Moss said in response to the questions.

At 38 years old, Moss could still have another year left in his career. He has stayed in shape and has been training with other current NFL players over the past couple of offseasons. That doesn’t mean that he is in playing shape, but the answer certainly makes it sound like he would at least consider an offer if it was a perfect situation.

In 218 career games, Moss hauled in 982 passes for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns.

Moss did mention the possibility of coming back to play one more season alongside of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning last offseason. That thought from Moss has opened him up for plenty more speculation about teams that could potentially offer him a contract.

Carolina simply doesn’t sound like a perfect situation for him.
