49ers Sign Moss to 1-year Deal

Posted Mar 12, 2012



The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed WR Randy Moss to a one-year contract.

“We are pleased to add a player with Randy’s wealth of experience to our receiving corps,” said 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke. “Randy’s productivity over the course of his career speaks for itself. We look forward to integrating him into our system.”

One of the most productive receivers in NFL history, Moss (6-4, 210) ranks in the top 10 in NFL history in career receptions (954 – ninth), receiving yards (14,858 – fifth) and touchdowns (153 – tied for second). He also ranks second in NFL history with 10, 1,000-yard seasons (WR Jerry Rice – 14) and 64, 100-yard games (Rice – 76). In 2007, Moss set a NFL single-season record with 23 touchdown receptions, surpassing Rice’s 22 touchdowns in 1987. He also holds the record for most touchdown receptions by a rookie, with 17 in 1998.

Selected as a member of the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 2000s, Moss has played in 202 games (191 starts) in his 13-year career. He is a four-time First-Team All-Pro and a six-time Pro Bowl selection. Since his rookie season in 1998, Moss ranks first in the NFL in receiving yards and touchdowns, while ranking fifth in receptions.

Originally a first round draft pick (21st overall) by the Minnesota in the 1998 NFL Draft, Moss spent seven years with the Vikings before being traded to the Oakland Raiders on 3/2/05. He went on to play two seasons with the Raiders. Moss was then traded from Oakland to New England on 4/29/07. He played for the Patriots from 2007-10 before being traded back to Minnesota on 10/6/10. Moss was later waived by the Vikings on 11/2/10, and claimed by the Tennessee Titans on 11/3/10.

A 35-year-old native of Rand, WV, Moss starred collegiately at Marshall where he recorded at least one touchdown in every game he played. In 28 games with the Thundering Herd, he registered 174 receptions for 3,529 yards and 54 touchdowns. In 1997, Moss won the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's leading wide receiver.
