Randy Moss is back playing football again, well sort of. The Charlotte Independence, a USL professional soccer franchise, announced Sunday that they have signed the 40-year-old to play fútbol.

The current NFL Network analyst’s first game will be Saturday.

In high school, other than just football, Moss was an basketball star and outstanding baseball player. Apparently it’s now soccer’s turn.

“Renewing my career is something that I’ve thought about for a long time now,” said Moss after signing. “I’m excited to get started with the Charlotte Independence and show the world that I can be a two-sport athlete.” (Charlotte Independence)
