What is Randy Moss' Net worth and Salary?

Randy Moss is an American retired professional football player who has a net worth of $25 million. Randy Moss is widely regarded as one of the best wide receivers in the history of football.

Moss entered the NFL in 1998, drafted 21st overall by the Minnesota Vikings. He made an immediate impact, setting a rookie record with 17 touchdown receptions. This outstanding debut earned him the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year title. Throughout his tenure with the Vikings, Moss was known for his deep-threat ability, often outpacing defenders and making acrobatic catches that left both fans and opponents in awe.

In 2007, Moss joined the New England Patriots and, along with quarterback Tom Brady, formed one of the most formidable quarterback-receiver duos in the league. That season, he broke Jerry Rice's single-season touchdown reception record with 23 touchdowns, while also helping the Patriots achieve a perfect regular season.

Over his illustrious 14-season NFL career, Moss played for teams including the Vikings, Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, and Oakland Raiders. He was selected to the Pro Bowl six times and inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018.

Early Life

Randy Gene Moss was born in Rand, West Virginia, on February 13, 1977. He attended DuPont High School where he excelled in football, basketball, baseball, and track and was named by Parade magazine as one of their 50 greatest high school players of all time. On the football field, Moss led the DuPont Panthers to back-to-back state championships in 1992 and 1993. He was a star at wide receiver but also played defensive back, returned kickoffs and punts, and was the team's kicker and punter. In 1994, he was honored with the Kennedy Award as the West Virginia Football Player of the Year. Moss was also named the West Virginia Player of the year for basketball twice.

Off-The-Field Troubles

On March 23, 1995, Moss backed a friend in a hallway fight against a white student who had allegedly used racist comments towards Randy's friend. Moss was initially charged with a felony for kicking the student, but it was later reduced to a misdemeanor. On August 1, 1995, Moss pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars at the South Central Regional Jail in Charleston, West Virginia. He served 3 days in jail starting that night and would be required to serve the remaining 27 days within the following 18 months after having completed his freshman year in college. He was expelled from the school and completed his education at an alternative school called Babell Alternative School. He was denied by Notre Dame after his racially charged fight in high school. Moss then decided to attend Florida State University but was dismissed for testing positive for marijuana.

Football

Randy Moss ended up playing football for Marshall University where he was a First-team All-American twice and won the Fred Biletnikoff Award and Paul Warfield Trophy in 1997. Moss went on to be selected #21 overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 1998 NFL Draft. He had an immediate impact helping the Vikings become the #1 rated offense ever at that time. He was named to the Pro Bowl as a starter to go along with his NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award following an impressive 1,313 yard, 17 touchdown campaign. He followed that up in 1999 with 1,413 yards and 11 touchdowns. Moss recorded 127 yards and a touchdown on five receptions in the NFC wildcard playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. He earned a second straight Pro Bowl nod winning the game's MVP award for racking up 212 yards on nine receptions. Randy Moss made the Pro Bowl again in 2000 making it three straight selections, and then again in 2002 and 2003.

After playing for the Vikings for seven seasons, Randy Moss was traded to the Oakland Raiders in 2005. Injuries mostly limited his production there, and he was unhappy with the team. He was later traded to the New England Patriots, and in 2007, he was named the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year and returned to the Pro Bowl for the first time since 2003. Despite a record-breaking season, Moss was mostly held in check in the playoffs. He did end up scoring the go-ahead touchdown pass from Tom Brady in Super Bowl XLII, but the Patriots lost to the New York Giants 17-14.

Randy Moss returned to Minnesota and then played for the Tennessee Titans and finally the San Francisco 49ers. During his 14 seasons, he set records for NFL single-season touchdown receptions (23), NFL single-season touchdown receptions for a rookie (17), and finished second on NFL all-time regular seasons touchdown receptions with 156. Moss won an AFC and an NFC Championship. Overall, he was a seven time Pro-Bowler and one time Pro Bowl MVP. He was a four time AP First-Team All-Pro selection and a one time NFC Player of the Year. After being released from the 49ers he was hired by Fox Sports 1 for their Fox Football Daily show. Moss ended his career with 982 receptions for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns.
