RANDY MOSS once said, "I play when I want to play. " Six months after retiring, the veteran NFL wide receiver wants to play again. Moss announced on a webchat yesterday - his 35th birthday - that he's planning a comeback. His agent, Joel Segal, wouldn't go into his client's available options.

" Moss posted on his Twitter page: "Now back to biz!

Regardless of how you crunch the numbers, Randy Moss is one of the NFL's highest paid players. The NFL's top wide receiver agreed with the Minnesota Vikings yesterday to an eight-year, $75 million deal that includes an $18 million signing bonus. He is the NFL's third highest-paid active player in total package value behind quarterbacks Drew Bledsoe and Brett Favre. Off his first three seasons, Moss, 24, seems worth it. He has 226 catches for 4,163 yards and 43 touchdowns in three seasons, the best marks ever in three years for any wide receiver in NFL history.

MANKATO, Minn. - Randy Moss is calling it a career after 13 seasons in the NFL as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players the league has ever seen. Moss' agent, Joel Segal, said yesterday that the receiver was considering offers from several teams, but made the decision to retire. Segal declined to comment specifically on the offers, instead saying his 34-year-old client felt the time was right to step away. "Randy has weighed his options and considered the offers and has decided to retire," Segal said.

The San Francisco 49ers will play the rest of the season without receiver Mario Manningham, meaning 35-year-old Randy Moss will start Sunday against the 5-10 Arizona Cardinals. Manningham suffered torn ligaments in his left knee during Sunday night's 42-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reported Tuesday that Manningham is scheduled for season-ending surgery and might not be ready for the start of next year's training camp. Moss has had a positive presence but not too many receptions in his return from a one-season hiatus.

A.J. FRAZIER felt nostalgic yesterday after Roman Catholic laid waste to host Roxborough, 45-6, on Thanksgiving Day. The 6-foot, 180-pound senior receiver and defensive back had just played in his last game as a Cahillite, so maybe that's why days gone by were foremost on his mind. However, when asked to recall his fondest Roman football memory, Frazier couldn't choose his own, although strangely, it did involve him. Frazier said he was a sophomore wideout going against current Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller, who was then a two-way Roman receiver and defensive back.

The first turnover Walter Thurmond forced in a game with the Eagles came last Saturday, when his one-handed interception in the end zone off a deflection halted the Baltimore Ravens' opening possession. But it was not the first turnover Thurmond recorded in an Eagles uniform. Throughout the summer, Thurmond has made a habit of intercepting quarterbacks and stripping ballcarriers. The coaches rank him atop the team in that area. As a result, there has not been a safety competition during training camp.

THE GREAT PART about being a sports fan is falling in love with a team or a player. The worst part about being a sports fan is getting your heartbroken so often. In the fall of 1997, I accidentally tuned into a Marshall University football game and I watched with amazement the best college wide receiver I had ever seen - Randy Moss. He was big and fast and could corral anything that came near him. It was truly love at first sight, and I dreamed of a 15-year love affair watching him in Eagles green.

After his team lost eight of 10 following a 3-1 start, Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak is embattled (sports jargon, meaning "about to be tossed out on his keister"), but he's serene about it. "It's part of this profession," he said of the daily questions he gets about his job security, then went into his best coach-speak. "I can only control what we do this Sunday. . . . After that, what happens as far as that goes, some of that's out of my control to some degree. " Translation: Munchak, who has one year left on his contract, may see an opportunity on the horizon.

PEYTON MANNING had another marathon session during the second stop in his search for a new team. The free-agent quarterback spent nearly 6 1/2 hours at the Cardinals' headquarters and training facility in Tempe, Ariz., yesterday in meetings designed to lure the superstar to the desert. The session was even longer than the nearly 6 hours Manning spent at the Broncos' facility in Denver on Friday night. Manning waved and smiled at cheering fans as he walked from the building to coach Ken Whisenhunt's white SUV. Manning was expected to return to his home in Florida.

THEY REMEMBER the year they watched the phenomenon unfold. Bradley Fletcher was a junior at Iowa. He intercepted two passes that season and began to pop on scouts' radar, a big step in his college career that helped him go in the third round 2 years later. Brandon Boykin was a senior at Fayette County in Fayetteville, Ga., a high school star preparing to head to UGA. That was 2007. From different sections of the country, they, with the rest of the football world, turned their eyes to New England and witnessed history.

NEWARK, N.J. - Marshawn Lynch spent nearly 54 of the 60 minutes he was scheduled to speak at Super Bowl media day Tuesday standing against a curtain with a hood over his head and sunglasses covering his eyes in an indoor arena. Cameras remained focused on Lynch. Reporters occasionally tried to test his silence with questions. Lynch, the Seahawks' star running back, did not flinch. He was already fined $50,000 this season for avoiding public comments - that fine was put on hold when he later spoke - and he risked another fine if he did not participate Tuesday.

Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell has been charged with tax fraud for his role in a scheme to file false federal returns on behalf of professional athletes. The faked returns sought refunds ranging from $170,000 to $1.9 million. That money was to be split among Mitchell, his two coconspirators, and the named tax filer. The indictment, filed by the U.S. attorney in Orlando last April, details how Mitchell, 33, recruited clients for a tax return business run by Jamie Russ-Walls and Richard Walls, both of Bensalem.

Today's lesson in the business of sports comes to us courtesy of NFL wide receivers - past and present, and (maybe) future. Let's start with the big, fun question that has many Eagles fans talking: Should the team sign Randy Moss, who announced he will attempt to return to the league after a Brett Favre-retirement kept him out of the game in 2011? No. That was easy. The Eagles don't want or need the distractions that come with Moss or Terrell Owens, who also is trying to come back after irritating everyone who has ever had to deal with him. Their post-Super Bowl 2005 season was ruined by Owens, so that should have taught the Eagles all they need to know.
