The next locker room cancer on our list is Randy Moss. What can you say about a guy who played for three different teams last year? A LOT! Moss is definitely one of the best receivers to play the game but a team player he is not. Moss has the second most receiving yards out of our “bad boys” with 14,858. He is tied with Terrell Owens in receiving touchdowns at 153. Owens has an additional 3 rushing TD’s. Whereas Moss has not recorded a rushing TD in his career.
In 2007, the second best statistical season of his career, Moss surpassed Jerry Rice with the most receiving touchdowns in a season – 23. The problem with Moss is that as fast as he can run, his mouth runs faster. “I don’t think me breaking Jerry Rice’s record is special. I think shutting you guys up is what made it special, all the negativity, all my critics.” Last season, he was fined $25,000 for not playing nice with the media.
He has only been interested in one thing for the entire length of his career…HIMSELF! Going back to the locker room before a game has finished of his own volition. Squirting a referee with a water bottle. Assault charges. Drug charges. Quitting mid play. Mouthing off to the media. Take your pick. Either way, Moss has established himself as a blistering infection…and a tremendous athlete. What a conundrum! Any team that doesn’t have him now is better off in the long run.
