Current wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen will pay tribute to Moss in the form of a pair of customized cleats that they will wear during tonight's season opener against the New Orleans Saints.

Diggs, who trails only Moss for the most receptions in franchise history in a player's  first two NFL seasons, idolized Moss growing up.

"Just paying tribute, paying respect, he's coming back, so I wanted to give my respect to him," Diggs said. "Hopefully I get to see him."

When Thielen grew up in Minnesota, Moss was one of the players who inspired him to play football and specifically the receiver position. Because of that, Thielen felt it was very fitting to pay tribute to him on the night that he's being honored by the franchise for his career.

"It was kind of something that I really wanted to just because he was that guy for me that pushed me to play this game and try to play at the highest level because of what he did on the field," Thielen said. "I definitely wanted to honor him and show that I have a lot of respect for him and his game."

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph was also spotted with a pair of special edition Randy Moss Jordan 11s.

The cleats were customized for the Vikings by Mache Custom Kicks @mache275.
