Former New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. During his speech, he thanked Robert Kraft among others.
Over the weekend, former New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. As expected, Moss thanked a lot of people, and many of those were from the Patriots’ organization.
Moss started out his career with the Minnesota Vikings but found his way to New England toward the end of his career. When it looked like he was done as a player after a down season in 2016 with the Oakland Raiders, Moss found new life in New England.
In 2007, Moss had one of the best seasons of his career in his first with the Patriots. Moss totaled 98 receptions, 1,493 receiving yards, and 23 receiving touchdowns. While that was the season that the Patriots just missed the perfect season, Moss was a beast and had one of the best individual seasons for a wide receiver we have ever seen.
During his speech, Moss thanked Robert Kraft and the Patriots for taking a chance on him.
Due to some rumblings about him being a problem in the locker room and his declining play with the Raiders, the Patriots certainly did take a chance on Moss. However, it couldn’t have worked out any better.
In four seasons with the Patriots, Moss totaled 259 receptions, 3,904 receiving yards, and 50 touchdown receptions. The combination of Moss and Brady was a treat to watch, as it was two of the best to ever play at their positions on the same team.
Even though Moss made his name with the Vikings, he was able to finish his career very strong with the Patriots. Overall, it was a great career for Moss and it was very nice to see him recognize his time with the Patriots and thank the ownership and the organization for the opportunity.
