Randy Moss Legacy: A First-Ballot NFL Hall Of Fame Candidate?

Randy Moss finishes his NFL career with 954 catches for 14,858 yards during a 13-year career with four franchises. Seven times named to the Pro Bowl  and four times a first-team All-Pro, Moss finishes his career eighth in total receptions and fifth in career receiving yards. 

He amassed 153 receiving touchdowns which leave him tied for second in NFL history (with Terrell Owens) trailing only Jerry Rice's 197.

Moss burst onto the scene as a rookie out of Marshall in 1998 with the Minnesota Vikings, a season in which he had 69 receptions for 1313 yards and a league leading 17 touchdown receptions. For his efforts he not only made the Pro Bowl, but was named All-Pro in his rookie campaign.

Though his coaches and teammates had to put up with many antics that came along with his talented play on the field, Moss retires as one of the greatest receivers in NFL history and the only question that remains is if he is a first ballot Hall of Fame football player. His play on the field certainly answers that question with a resounding yes.
