Randy Moss is back -- in the NFL, that is.

The veteran receiver agreed to a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, ESPN reported.

Moss, 35, sat out last season after an unproductive 2010 that saw him struggle with three teams, including the Minnesota Vikings.

But Moss announced his comeback plans last month, saying in an online broadcast: "I wanna play football. Your boy is going to come back here and play some football, so I'm really excited. I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

The Vikings drafted Moss in the first round (21st overall) of the 1998 draft. In 13 NFL seasons with the Vikings, Oakland, New England and Tennessee, Moss ranks among the NFL's all-time leaders with 954 receptions for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman made clear shortly after Moss' announcement he wouldn't consider bringing Moss back again.

The Vikings are scheduled to host the 49ers next season.
