Randy Moss will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the first time when the 48-person committee meets one day before U.S. Bank Stadium hosts Super Bowl LII in February 2018.
The former Vikings star wide receiver ranks second in career touchdown receptions (156), third in receiving yards (15,292), and 15th in receptions (982). He is considered by many to be among the top three receivers in NFL history.
This should make Moss a shoo-in as a first-ballot Hall of Fame selection, right?
Terrell Owens' latest snub from the Hall of Fame, however, argues Moss' immediate enshrinement might not be so certain.
The committee did not select Owens for the second consecutive year, who might have been hindered because of his reputation as a bad teammate. His 15,937 receiving yards rank second behind Rice and he dominated his position for 15 years in the NFL. But it is not enough so far.
