New York Giants[edit]

Moss was selected by the New York Giants with the 44th overall pick in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami.

The Giants expected to groom Moss to be their slot receiver in 2006 but his progress was marred by a recurring quadriceps injury, which caused him to miss training camp and limited him to five receptions during his rookie season in six games.[2] In 2007, Moss played in 13 games, the year of Giants' Super Bowl XLII victory.[2]

After two seasons with the Giants that produced only 26 receptions for 230 yards and no touchdowns, Moss vowed to improve in the 2008 campaign.[2] [2] However, Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks, quickly surpassed Moss on the depth chart.

Prior to the 2010 season, Domenik Hixon, who had taken the return job away from Moss during the 2009 season, tore his ACL and was placed on injured reserve. During the preseason, Moss competed for the return specialist job, but suffered from a sports hernia and on August 31, 2010 was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Moss was officially waived by the Giants on November 9, 2010 after reaching an injury settlement.[3] Primarily because of injuries, he departed New York after a five-year career that included just three touchdowns.[3]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit]

Moss was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to a future contract on January 10, 2011. He was released on September 3 during final roster cuts.

Saskatchewan Roughriders[edit]

On April 24, 2012, Moss was signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders.[4] After playing in only two regular season games, Moss was released during the following off-season on March 8, 2013.[5]
