Is Randy Moss on his way to New England? Not quite yet, but it looks possible in the near future. In an interview on March 16 on KFAN radio in Minneapolis, Randy Moss was quoted as saying:
“If you’re asking me where my heart and where I’m happy is, I love playing with Tom Brady. I love being coached by Bill Belichick.”
After being traded by the Patiots following a Week 4 win over the Dolphins, Moss saw his numbers and playing time drop drastically. He finished the year with a dismal 28 receptions for only 393 yards and five scores. Moss has confessed his love for the Patiots organization multiple times and he has made it very clear once again that he still thinks he can contribute.
During the interview, Moss was quoted talking about his respect and love for coach Bill Bellichick.
“I think that just the success as a wide receiver and everything that the New England Patriots stand for, you know, I’m a big fan of Bill Belichick’s. I really am, and not just on the field. I’m a fan of his off the field because, you know, the little grouchy man that you see on-camera is not what you see off-camera,” said Moss.
The big question is: Will Bellichick and the Patriots take him back?
Moss has proved that he has the best hands in the NFL and he has put up some astonishing numbers as a Patriot. Moss caught more than 250 passes and scored 50 touchdowns in a Patriot uniform. He had close to 4,000 yards recieving with an average of about 15 yards per catch. It is clear that Randy Moss has the ability to stretch out the field, which is exactly what the Patriots are looking for. Brandon Tate couldn’t quite fill Randy’s shoes and it might be New England’s best bet to take Moss back if they want to return to the Super Bowl sometime soon. With Brady and Moss both getting older, it is time to take action and reconnect these two and hope for another year like 2007.
Should the Pats take the six time Pro Bowl wide reciever back?
