Moss turned some heads Tuesday when he called himself the best wide receiver in NFL history, but Rice was diplomatic — sort of — when people instantly started commenting that the title should instead go to Rice.
“I’m very surprised Randy Moss used that in those words, that he’s the greatest,” Rice said on ESPN. “You’d never hear me say I’m the greatest football player to ever play the game. I let my body of work speak for itself, and I think I was able to be very productive on the football field.”
So, that’s how you say you’re the greatest ever without saying you’re the greatest ever. Well played, Mr. Rice.
