Moss, Rashad selected for Vikings Ring of Honor

Moss, Rashad selected for Vikings Ring of Honor

The Minnesota Vikings will induct a pair of legendary wide receivers in the club's Ring of Honor in 2017- Randy Moss and Ahmad Rashad.

That feeling when you see your Ring of Honor jersey on the wall...

Moss and Rashad will be the Vikings' first Ring of Honor inductees since 2013, as the team did not induct a former player during the two seasons at the University of Minnesota and the inaugural season at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"Randy and Ahmad are two of the most recognizable and decorated players in Vikings history", Wilf said in a statement.

Moss started 108 of 113 games with the Vikings and appeared in eight playoff contests over seven-plus seasons in Purple.

The conservative from the southern state of Louisiana is helping lead the drive to repeal Barack Obama's health care law. The Alexandria Police Department reported five people were taken to the hospital for treatment.

He joined the Vikings in 1976 and played in Minnesota until retiring after the 1982 season.

The Freak was named to five Pro Bowls with the Vikings, and he is now third on the NFL's all-time receiving yardage list (15,292) and second in receiving touchdowns (156). Bud just kind of looked at me and goes, 'Well, it's either you or me.

Moss holds the Vikings' career record with 41 100-yard games. He set a rookie record with 17 touchdowns in 1998.

The wide receiver ranks second in National Football League history with 156 receiving touchdowns, is third all-time with 15,292 yards and holds the NFL's record for touchdown catches in a season with 23 as a New England Patriot. "I can't recall how that whole process worked really", Wilf said.

Moss played for the Vikings from 1998-2004 and briefly in 2010, catching 587 of his 982 career passes for them.

Cleveland pulled within 108-102 on a Kyle Korver three-pointer, but again Durant had an answer with a dunk. Coach Steve Kerr called Trump a "blowhard" and said he "couldn't be more ill-suited to be president".

"So now I can just reflect back on the touchdowns, the games against the Green Bay Packers, the games against the Chicago Bears", Moss continued.

Seconds later, Moss was back to wisecracking, ripping on a reporter's question, returning to the big, engaging personality that was either loved or rubbed you the wrong way. "I could score a great touchdown and I'd walk by him, he'd say something like, 'I could have done that, I just don't have the right shoes on'".

When Moss slipped down the 1998 draft board, with other teams turned off by the trouble he got into during his college years, then-coach Dennis Green and the Vikings sure took advantage of their opportunity. He played in 218 career games with 193 starts. To think that Rashad excelled at so many things after his football career is pretty remarkable. "But, Coach Green gave me an opportunity, man", Moss said after gathering his emotions as he prepared to speak about Green while wiping away tears. And I told him, you're not going to regret this. So you found yourself trying to do things that would make him excited.

Added Moss: "So for me being able to go up in this Ring of Honor, the Wilfs helped me get there, and I'm glad they're owners of this team because they made a lot of great strides for this team to be where they are".
