Here we go. Just as we are getting ready for the start of the NFL season, the New England Patriots probably felt they needed to focus on game planning for week 1. It’s true, they do. But, now they have to deal with an unhappy Randy Moss, who feels “not wanted” since the Pats haven’t offered him a contract extension.
“When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted,” Moss said ito CBSSports.com. “I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling — feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down. I am speaking from an individual standpoint. I don’t know about Tom [Brady's] or whoever else’s contract.
“I am a little older and understand the nature of the business — the older you get the more your skills supposedly diminish, but I think I am getting wiser in how to use my physical skills. That’s the frustrating part when you put so much heart and desire into things and feel like you are not wanted.”
Moss is in the final year of a deal that will pay him $6.4 million this season. He’s 33-years old, but he’s still very productive.
If we are the Patriots (and some think we are), we wouldn’t give him more than two years on a contract extension. After 35, you are on your own, Randy.
