Moss ranks second in NFL history with 156 receiving touchdowns and was enshrined this August as a first-ballot nominee. Moss stormed onto the NFL landscape 20 years ago when he set a rookie record of 17 touchdown catches to help Minnesota go 15-1.

Fans can help welcome Moss back to Minnesota by applying a purple filter developed by 3M to the lights on their mobile devices. The film and instructions for how to apply it will be on the covers of the Playbook game programs that are placed on the stadium's seats.
