1. Randy Moss did not play in 2011. On Aug. 1, 2011, his agent Joel Segal said that Moss was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire.

2. Moss ranks in the top 5 in NFL history in receiving yards (5th with 14,858), receiving TD (tied for 2nd with 153) and 100-yard receiving games (2nd with 64). Moss, Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens are the only players to rank in the top 5 in each of those categories.

3. Moss finished 2010 with career lows in receptions (28) and receiving yards (393) as he was traded from the Patriots to the Vikings in midseason and then cut by Minnesota, ultimately finishing the year with the Titans. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Moss is just the 3rd 1st-round draft pick to ever play for 3 teams in a season.

4. Moss owns the league's single-season record for receiving TD, recording 23 as the Patriots posted the first 16-0 regular season in league history in 2007. He also has the single-season rookie record for receiving TD, registering 17 with the 1998 Vikings.

5. Moss was one of the best deep threats in league history, finishing his career with 29 touchdowns of at least 50 yards. Only Jerry Rice, with 36, had more.
