Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Randy Moss rock custom footwear honoring Randy Moss”

Randy Moss, the legendary Vikings wide receiver who now works as an ESPN analyst, has a dual role Monday in Minneapolis: he's working the Vikings/Saints opener at U.S. Bank Stadium and he's being honored by the Vikings as he enters the team's Ring of Honor. We'll probably get a closer look before the game, when Moss' Monday Night Countdown colleagues surely ask to see the shoes he's wearing for the halftime ceremony or he's standing on the field during pregame and may be wearing them.

Thielen added: "It was kind of something that I really wanted to do just because he was that guy for me that pushed me to play this game and try to play at the highest level because of what he did on the field".

Moss spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career in Minnesota, and made an immediate splash with the Vikings. He returned to Minnesota for four games in the 2010 season, only to clash with head coach Brad Childress before leaving the Vikings and going to play with the New England Patriots. He retired after playing the 2012 season with the 49ers.

In his first seven seasons with the Vikings, Moss had 574 catches and 90 touchdowns.

Arguably the best wide receiver in Vikings' history, and surely the most influential upon his arrival as a ballyhooed and highly productive rookie in 1998, Moss will be a first-time candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. For a preseason game at Seattle, the receiver wore Starbucks-themed boots.
