Randy Moss Reportedly Close to Signing Deal With Fox Sports

Randy Moss is close to joining the Fox television family.

With no teams begging wide receiver Randy Moss to sign with them this season, Moss is getting ready for life after football. Since Moss is pretty much unofficially retired from football, he has decided to do the next best thing and become a football analyst.

According to Pro Football Talk, Moss, who spent three full seasons with the Patriots, is close to signing a television deal with Fox. Dan Bell, vice president of communications for FOXSports, told USA TODAY Sports the company is declining comments about Moss at this time and did not confirm any deal with the former receiver. Moss, on the other hand, took to social media and tweeted what seemed to be a confirmation of his new employer saying, “Thanks for the luv peeps!!FOX BOOM .”

The 36-year-old Moss played his last game in 2012 with the San Francisco 49ers but amassed one of the most prolific careers of any receiver. Moss, a certain future Hall of Famer, accumulated over 15,000 receiving yards and 156 touchdowns over his 14 year career. He set the single-season record for touchdown receptions while in Foxboro in 2007 with 23, surpassing Jerry Rice’s 20-year record of 22. Moss was voted to six Pro Bowls and is considered on the greatest deep threats in history.

Moss’s new career choice is an interesting one seeing he was not known for his friendliness with the media as a player. He frequently clashed with reporters or just avoided them. However, with his experience in the league as one of the best players of all time, he could offer very entertaining and insightful analysis of games.

Moss will join a long list of former players who successfully traded in their jerseys for microphones including Warren Sapp, Darren Sharper, Shannon Sharpe and Deion Sanders.

I would love to see Moss as an analyst mostly because I am interested to see if he could be unbiased against the Patriots, seeing he did not leave the team on the best of terms.
