NEW ORLEANS––San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss didn’t hold back earlier this week when he proclaimed himself the best wide receiver in NFL history.
But apparently he doesn’t think Packers wide receiver Donald Driver, who announced he’ll be retiring next week, is in the same category.
“All time ranking? I don’t really know,” said Moss. “There’s a lot of receivers ahead of him.”
Moss also paid his respect to Driver.
“I just think he did some phenomenal things up there in Green Bay in their offense. Like I said, he worked with Brett Favre, he worked with Aaron Rodgers. Playing with those two quarterbacks, man, you’ve got nothing to do but succeed. My hat’s off to him. Like I said, he had a good career. Life after football, the show must go on.”
As far as noteworthy games facing Driver, Moss thinks his best ones are with another Packers player.
“My memorable matchups are against Brett Favre,” said Moss. “That’s about it.”
