After an early season blip Tom Brady has been performing exceptionally well for the New England Patriots in recent weeks - throwing for 16 touchdowns in his last four games.

Despite that the concerns over the Patriots' limited receiving corps continue with the likes of Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell unlikely ever to be considered elite.

So how about bringing back one of Brady's favorite targets in his time in Foxborough?

"For me to come out of retirement for a player such as Peyton Manning, I would consider that"

Randy Moss, the record holding former Patriot (2007-2010) who retired prior to the 2013 season, has today revealed that he would consider a shock return to the NFL if either Tom Brady or fellow record holder Peyton Manning came calling.

"I'm gonna tell you this, for me to come out of retirement for a player such as Peyton Manning, I would consider that," Moss told The Peter Schrager Podcast.

"I really would consider it. I'm still in great shape, I can still run. ... I'm not the most old, but just by looking at the things I see on Sundays, I can still go out there and catch some passes and catch some touchdowns."

Moss racked up 50 of his 156 careers touchdowns whilst in New England and his on-field rapport with Tom Brady was clear for everyone to see.

Could Moss still perform?

Now aged 37-years-old however no one really knows if Moss could still perform at a high level in the NFL.

Perhaps that is why he would only come back if he had Brady or Manning throwing to him - with those two under center it becomes a lot easier to rack up those receptions.

Moss was targeted by one team this season already it emerged recently with the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks reaching out to him in the aftermath of the recent Percy Harvin trade.

What do you think? Could Randy Moss still be an asset in the NFL, or should he be content with retirement? Let us know in the comment section below...
