Randy Moss apparently planning a comeback

Randy Moss is apparently planning a comeback.

Moss decided to retire last August after 13 NFL seasons and told an audience on UStream.tv Monday about trying to return for 2012. He just turned 35 years old on Monday.

Before calling it quits, Moss caught 954 passes for 14,858 yards with 153 touchdowns. Only Jerry Rice has more TD catches with 197.

Moss had a troubled 2010 season. It began with the New England Patriots, but bitterness over his contract situation -- he was in the final year of his deal -- led to an October 6 trade to the Minnesota Vikings, the team for which he started his career. Less than a month later, Moss was claimed off waivers by the Tennessee Titans.

In 16 combined games -- four each with New England and Minnesota and eight with Tennessee -- he managed just 28 catches for 393 yards with five touchdowns.

Moss spent the first seven years of his career with the Vikings, who selected the Marshall product with the 21st overall pick in the 1998 draft. He made an immediate impact on the league, catching 17 touchdown passes in his first season.

Following his first stint with the Vikings, Moss played two years with the Oakland Raiders before joining the Patriots, who acquired the wide receiver for a fourth-round pick in the 2007 draft.

In his first season with New England, Moss set an NFL record with 23 touchdown receptions.
