Free agent wide receiver Randy Moss, who was rumored to be a target of the Jets, Ravens, Eagles and Chiefs, has reportedly decided to retire.
According to correspondence with ESPN, Moss' agent, Joel Segal issued the following statement:
"After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he's decided to retire."
He was the Vikings' first round pick in the 1998 draft at 21st overall. He finishes his career with 954 receptions, 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns.
Moss played for the Raiders in 2005 and 2006, starting 28 games. He finished his career in Oakland with 11 touchdowns, with 102 receptions and 1,558 yards.
The Raiders acquired Moss in a trade that sent linebacker Napoleon Harris and the Raiders' first and seventh-round picks.
Moss, 34, was from the Patriots to the Vikings last season before he was cut and signed with the Titans.
