MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Randy Moss was one of the most prolific wide receivers in the history of the Minnesota Vikings.
Moss turned 40 on Monday, so how did the NFL celebrate it? With touchdowns, of course. Moss spent his first seven seasons with the Vikings and was one of the best players in the 1998-99 season that went to the NFC Championship.
The NFL posted a video on Twitter Monday to celebrate his birthday. It featured every touchdown he had of at least 40 yards. There were plenty of them, including a long punt return in the video that is more than nine minutes long.
Moss had 17 touchdowns in his rookie season with the Vikings, and had at least 1,200 yards receiving in each of his first six seasons. He had 90 touchdowns with the Vikings before making it known to ownership he was unhappy and being traded to the Oakland Raiders.
In honor of @RandyMoss‘ 40th Birthday…
