No. 4: Wide Receiver Randy Moss — with 49ers in 2012
Many will argue wide receiver Randy Moss was well past his prime when he signed with San Francisco. That would not be much of an argument because it was the truth.
After being out of football in the 2011 season, Moss signed a one-year deal with the 49ers prior to 2012. He came to the team with quite the résumé.
He had six Pro Bowl and four All-Pro selections to his name coming from the time he spent with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots. He also had a single-season record of 23 receiving touchdowns in 2007, having broken the record of the legendary Hall of Famer, Jerry Rice.
Moss was all but a decoy in an offense that was run-heavy and featured Pro Bowler Frank Gore in the backfield.
He finished the season with 28 receptions, 434 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Not the numbers typically expected from him.
Yet Moss also ended up playing in the Super Bowl when the Niners made it all the way to that game even though the future Hall of Famer wasn’t a big a part of the path there as some of San Francisco’s other standouts.
Moss would retire for good after that year with 14 seasons in the league to his name.
