Before he was asked about Kaepernick or catfishing - yes, that story is still rearing its head - Randy Moss was asked of he wants to continue playing.
"I've thought about it," said Moss, 35. "I do want to play another year."

"I don't know about that."
Moss, of course, did not play football in 2011, but he said he wasn't ready to leave the game. He said he needed to address some problems with his kids. During that time, he watched the NFL on television and realized that he not only missed the game, he loved it.
"I really did cry. I really did," he said. "I mean, I love this game of football so much. I mean, I don't like everything that comes with it. But going out on the field between the white lines is something I've always done. I've been doing it since I was six years old. For me to just walk away from the game knowing I wasn't ready, mentally or physically, it really hurt me and it really depressed me."
