Former NFL wide receiver turned broadcaster Randy Moss said if were still playing he could put up "15 or 16 touchdowns."

Moss, who retired at the end of last season with 156 career receiving touchdowns, eclipsed 15 receiving touchdowns in a season four times during his 14-year career.

"If I had to go out here and feed my family by getting back on that football field, I could still put up 15 or 16 touchdowns," Moss told Fox Sports. "I can still play the game. I don't know what a lot of people (saw) last year, but I know what it looked like. It looked like I was old and that they were trying to keep me fresh and things like that, but I can still play the game of football."
