(Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss announced Monday on a UStream chat that he wants to return to professional football in the 2012 season.

Moss also referenced the news on his Twitter page on Monday morning, saying he was ready to get back to business.

The former Minnesota star retired from the NFL on August 1, seemingly ending a career in which he caught 954 passes for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns over 13 seasons.

Moss, who turned 35 on Monday, was selected with the 21st overall selection in 1998 by Minnesota. He then went on to lead the NFL in touchdown receptions five times, including catching 23 touchdowns in the 2007 season.

He was selected six times to the Pro Bowl and was named four times as a first team All Pro.

His 153 touchdown catches are tied with Terrell Owens for second in the all-time NFL record book, and Moss also ranks fifth all-time in yards and ninth in receptions.
