Did you know Moss has never been in legal trouble throughout his years in the NFL?
You probably didn’t because Tom Jackson of ESPN continually calls him a “Thug”. Moss had some run ins with the law in high school and in college, but from the time he enrolled at Marshall, there have been many athletes, some who are portrayed as squeaky clean that have been in more trouble than Moss.
There are valid criticisms you can make about Moss on the field and maybe even in the locker room, but the “Thug Life” rap that ESPN and others have placed on him has always been bogus.
Moss spoke to some underage offenders and it good look by Pro Football Talk for spotlighting it.
“The decisions you made to put yourself here were a mistake,” Moss told the male inmates, according to Ashley B. Craig of the Charleston Daily Mail. “It happens. I’ve been there.”
Moss also spoke with the female inmates at the facility.

“I’ve been there. I’ve been where they are. I’ve worn those orange jumpsuits.”
Regardless of what you think of Moss personally there were many who figured that he would be in an orange jumpsuit at this point of his life.
He has proved a lot of people wrong.
