He has yet to officially make a decision regarding his future but if he is in fact retiring then this will be a great loss for the NFL. ‘Megatron’ is arguably the best receiver in recent history and is completely unlike any other receiver in the NFL now or ever. While certain records of his are unquestionable, his Hall of Fame candidacy will certainly draw significant discussions. There is certainly a very convincing argument for him to be admitted but critics may knock him for leaving the game so early. Either way, he is generational great, so here are his best moments from what appears to be his final season.
