Randy Moss can play in 17 games this season

The Minnesota Vikings pushed fast to get a deal for wide receiver Randy Moss done this morning as they want to get him up to speed with what they’re doing in order for him to be ready for their game Monday night against the New York Jets.

The Vikings (1-2) are coming out of their bye week and trying to build some momentum before they fall any further behind the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, who are both atop the NFC North at 3-1.

Because the Vikings are coming out of their bye, and Moss played in the first four games in New England, he will play in 17 regular-season games this season provided he remains healthy. According to the NFL, Moss is the sixth player in this category since the bye was instituted in 1990. Follow NFLFootballInfo on Twitter to keep up with good nuggets like this.

The last was linebacker Will Witherspoon just last season. He split time in Philadelphia and St. Louis. Previously, Jerry Rice did it in 2004 with Oakland and the forgettable stint he had in Seattle. Micah Ross also accomplished the feat in 2004 in San Diego and Carolina. Dexter Carter (1995, N.Y. Jets-San Francisco) and Chris Singleton (1993, New England-Miami) were also 17-game players.
