The Chicago Slaugher of the Indoor Football League is offering Moss a contract to return to professional football
While it's uncertain whether wide receiver Randy Moss will get the opportunity to return to the NFL in 2012, the Chicago Slaugher of the Indoor Football League is offering Moss a contract to return to professional football. The Slaughter play at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill., and are coached by former Chicago Bear Steve McMichael.
McMichael spoke on Thursday with Chicago Tribune reporter Dan Pompei about Moss:
What a great way to show the NFL he’s still got it. If he catches four or five touchdowns in his first game, the NFL will say he can still play.
Moss, now 35, didn't play during the 2011 season. That came after struggling in 2010 while moving between three different teams, catching just 28 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns. He was putting up impressive numbers as recently as 2009, though, when he caught 83 passes for 1264 yards and 13 touchdowns with the Patriots. Moss would be joining former NFL star Terrell Owens in the IFL, as he'll apparently be playing with the Allen Wranglers.
