Randy Moss is one of the most talented players in NFL history.
He stood 6-foot-5, 210 pounds and ran a 4.2 40-yard dash — with the route running and catching ability to tie everything together. He was also tagged with “character concerns” throughout his career, but many of his teammates and coaches explained why these are just skewed narratives.
Julian Edelman was one of those players who had a close relationship with Moss, and he explained why the Hall of Famer is “an awesome teammate.”
While breaking down a story from his early NFL days on Cris Carter’s WR1 Podcast, Edelman also dove into the hilarious nickname that Moss handed him.
“Every day he’d come in, he used to call me “Edel-nut,” Edelman said. “He goes, ‘Hey, Edel-nut. 98 first round. You better get to know me… there’s about 15 to 16 of you out here Julian Edelman, but there’s only one Randy Moss. 98, first round. Get to know me.’ And then just walk off.”
