Randy Moss says he could still play at a high level

"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. 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.
"I'm not going to play the game of football, but for me to be able to still go out and still catch touchdowns, I can still run. I can still catch. I still got vision. If I still got those things, if I still have the things that God blessed me with, then why can't I be able to go out there and put up 15 or 16 touchdowns? I can still do it. Age is just a number to me."
Right now, Moss works for Fox as a broadcast analyst. He spent a total of 14 years as a wide receiver with a number of teams, including 3 with the Patriots (which included the 16-0 season). He went down as one of the best wide receivers to play the game.
Could he really put up 15 touchdowns now? I highly doubt it. He played with the San Francisco 49ers in the 2012 season and had an OK season, with 434 yards and 3 TD's according to ESPN, but stepped down after that. After 2009, his last full season with the Pats, his production dropped off massively in 2010 and 2012 (he didn't play in 2011), so I have my doubts.
