Two-minute Warning

Moss says he's coming out of retirement

Just six months after announcing his retirement, Randy Moss has had a quick change of heart and said he wants to play football again.

The 35-year-old retired last August, after compiling 14,858 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns in 13 seasons.

In 2010, he was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings before ending the season with the Tennessee Titans.

The biggest question is, who wants him? Moss seemed to exit his prime after 2007 when he caught 23 touchdown passes and helped the Patriots reach the Super Bowl.

Pick 12 winner decided

It was a close race all season between Jenn Shute and Johnny Brooks in The Bayonet’s 2011 Pick 12 Challenge, but Shute made a late charge to take the lead over the Army retiree and held it through the NFL playoffs.

Shute, a Family member, had the best overall record through the season at 138-76, despite going 4-6 in the playoffs. Brooks went 6-4 but finished in second for the season at 136-78.

Brittany Beadle of Outdoor Recreation made an impressive late-season charge, climbing from last to third and finished at 122-92. Geoff Bailey, a chaplain with the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, came in fourth at 121-93; David Dean, of 2nd Battalion, 11th Infantry Regiment, came in fifth at 120-94. Mark Moore, garrison command sergeant major, finished last at 117-87.

The Bayonet thanks all who participated.
