Two decades after exploding onto the scene as a dominating rookie wide receiver in 1998, Randy Moss is headed for the Vikings' Ring of Honor in 2017.

The Vikings announced Wednesday that Moss, along with fellow former Vikings receiver Ahmad Rashad, will be inducted into the Ring of Honor.

“Randy and Ahmad are two of the most recognizable and decorated players in Vikings history,” said Vikings owner/president Mark Wilf. “They were great players who made their marks on the NFL during their careers and were highly respected by teammates and opponents. They are as proud of their Vikings roots as we are to have them in our football family forever. Both Randy and Ahmad deserve this team honor, and we look forward to inducting them into the Ring of Honor during the 2017 season.”

Rashad was a four-time Pro Bowler in seven seasons with the Vikings.

Moss was basically a god in football shoes.

Official dates of when they'll be inducted are unknown.

More to come.
