A colorful personality over the course of his 14 NFL seasons, Randy Moss had his fare share of quotables and one-liners. And now it appears FOX is looking to cash in on that.

According a report by ProFootballTalk, Moss and the TV network are closing in on a deal that would make the 36-year old former wide receiver an NFL analyst, joining an already-impressive roster that includes the likes of Brian Urlacher, Ronde Barber, Eddie George, Howie Long, and Michael Strahan, among others.

Moss is speculated to be a major contributor to the new Fox Sports 1 network, which launches August 17.

Moss played 14 seasons between Minnesota, Oakland, New England, Tennessee, and San Francisco, racking up 15,982 receiving yards and 156 touchdowns. He is thought to be one of the greatest players in NFL history to never win a ring, coming up short in two Super Bowls, in 2007 with the Patriots and last season with the 49ers.

He played for the Patriots from 2007-2010, catching 259 passes for 3,904 yards and 50 touchdowns in 52 games. Moss set the single-season receiving touchdown record in 2007 when he and Tom Brady connected on 23 touchdown passes.
