The wide receiver's agent says he will not return to play this season

After 13 seasons, 34-year-old wide receiver Randy Moss has decided to throw in the towel.

"After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he's decided to retire," Moss' agent, Joel Segal, said Monday. 

The football star, who played for three teams in 2010: he was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings last October, but was waived after a month and picked up by the Tennessee Titans, had his worst season last year. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news in a tweet.

Moss was a seven-time Pro Bowl participant and made 153 touchdown catches in his career (he's tied with Dallas' Terrell Owens for TDs among current players). He was also named rookie of the year his first season with 69 catches and 17 TDs for the Vikings. But, he struggled last season making only 28 catches and 5 TDs.
