Moss has regrets for New England, Minnesota

Randy Moss is beginning to love this social media thing. He’s started his own Twitter page, and on Monday morning, he announced on USTREAM that he wants to return to the NFL.

"I wanna play football," Moss said. "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."

On Monday night, Moss returned to the USTREAM machine and talked about … well … whatever the hell he wanted.

The only thing (slightly) newsworthy he said was when somebody asked him if he had regrets for how he left New England last year. Moss answered by saying he had regrets for how his tenure ended in New England (he was traded, so he really didn’t have much to do with the decision) and for what happened in Minnesota (perhaps because he, as former Vikings coach Brad Childress, said "vomited" on the locker room). He also said he regrets how he ended his career.

Among other topics broached by Moss:

Latest NFL News, Notes


His take on the media:

“Do you know why the media hates on me? The media hates on me because I give them nothing. They mix your words and (misconstrue) everything. That’s why I don’t like playing the media. There’s some good ones out there, but I don’t know who’s good and who’s bad. I choose not to mess with them. That’s why I’ve got Moss TV.

“The media has to feed their family too. That’s their job. I’m not knocking them.”

On whether a year off will make his legs fresher:

“My legs feel damn good. They really do.”

Who’s a better deep threat: Moss or Calvin Johnson?

“I don’t know that. That will be interesting to see this year.”

On how he's not broke:

"I've saved my money."

Moss also said he would return to his USTREAM in the next day or two. So, you know, be on alert or whatever.

I'd take a flyer on him with an incentive laden contract. With bonuses for every 4 TD's, 25 catches, 500 rec yds. etc.  Here's how you do it though. You sign him to the Cardinals, but ONLY if Manning winds up in the desert. If Manning goes southwest to the redbirds, then Larry Fitzgerald will need another receiver to take the pressure of him. Moss can be that guy, if he still is half the player he used to be. My guess is, with the right quarterback (nobody is more demandning or respected than Peyton in the huddle), a good offense (all Arizona needs is a QB, and some patchwork on the line that can be had in the draft and Free agency), and a bonafide No.1 receiver on the other side of the field (Fitzgerald is one of the best in the league), then you have an immediate powerhouse to go with the 49'ers in the West. If Moss is motivated, he can still play at a pretty substantial level. A motivated Moss, a HOF QB, likely HOF WR, and a upper-tier running back in Wells, and you've got an offense thats just as good if not better than the Superbowl Cardinals under Warner.

  He sounds like a man with a new drive so I'd give him a shot.  Even if he has lost a step his size makes up for it, double time in the red zone.  You don't need to give up picks or anything just money.  I don't think he iss going to command super star $, and it doesn't have to be guarenteed, so why the heck not if your a piece away from steppin up! Good luck Randy!

"...I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

Well, I like that the man had enough perspective to take time off and focus on the big picture. At the same time this was 2 years of his livelihood that he basically threw away. Why the cat-fights with Tom Brady? Why quit on the Vikings? Randy Moss is too physically gifted to make decisions like that and come away looking like anything but a douche. He was a great player physically, but psychologically he never matured. The true all-around greats are able to reconcile body and mind while handling their private lives sufficiently well enough to maintain a long and continuous career. It's not just a part of being a professional: it's a part of being an adult.


Moss is gonna be 35 during the 2012 season... how in the world is this gonna end well? Might as well beg the Patriots to take you back and try to make things right. Not gonna be the dominant force you were in 2007, much less the explosive threat in 1998. But maybe you can help somebody a little. Mentor a young guy and be the positive locker room influence you should be. Maybe even make a few plays here and there. Don't go out a loser.
