    Moss' Performance This Upcoming Year, Team Player?

    http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/football/patriots/view/20100601pats_randy_moss_hits_market_seeks_agent_visibility/

    It'll be interesting to see how he performs this year. He's coming out and saying he can still play at a high level. In his last year, I'm hoping his play will meet his own hype :)

    Hopefully, his year long marketing won't disturb the team too much.

    I don't see how it will disturb the team at all. Tom Brady has been doing that his whole career, making the magazine covers and all and making himself marketable. Moss, despite being a hall of famer and an interesting personality, never really made any commercials or show up on any magazines. He is simply doing that right now late in his career. It should have absolutely no effect on his on-field performance.

    What will be interesting is to see how many endorsement contracts can be completed in the next year.  Mebbe if he really rakes it in...he'll give a home town discount for another 1-2 year contract with the Patriots....lol.

    I am going to go out here, and predict he re-signs and retires a Patriot. I have this feeling most of this noise is just jockeying for position.

    i dont think moss is nearly as marketable as he thinks he is, especially at this point in his career. but it does sound like he needs some money so i think he is motivated to have a big year. as for the future, sounds like he's going to the highest bidder, which probably is someplace else.

    I just wonder why he thinks he is not in the Pats plans next year. Does he think he can make more $$$ somewhere else?  Given his age, that doesn't seem likely.  Look at guys like Holt.  He has to see the writing on the wall.  The supplemental income has to be a way to off-set that.  I do think he is very marketable.  If the ridiculous Mannings can lick Oreo's, then he can surely push an energy drink or Viagra.  LOL.

    You just compared Torry Holt to Randy Moss? Were you drunk when you wrote that? Holt didnt put up 13 TDs and 1200 plus yards last year. Moss did so with Brady still limping and slightly off his game. Get a grip already.

         I'm not sure that I understand why Randy Moss is saying that the Pats won't sign him to an extension. My thoughts are that if he has another good year in 2010, that the Pats will attempt to resign him.

    Contract year for Randy Moss, what can you expect? Well, the last contract year Moss-man had he caught a record breaking 23 TDs. 


    Moss-man said what he said because the Pats had to pay Wilfork, Mankins, Brady, maybe Welker, before they could think of paying a 34 year old WR who would probably want more than 5 mill a year. It makes sense, if that's what he wants I can't see it happening either.

    I was thinking that what he really is saying is " That's Pats won't  give me an extension for the kind of Cash they paid him in his last contract". His numbers are still top notch but he's getting older. He just saw guys like Vraebel and Seymour get traded under similar circumstances and probably figures they won't pay him the kind of cash that he wants. If he puts up over a 1000 yds with double digit TD's I'd give him another 2 year deal.I think he's gonna be motivated and have an awesome year this year.

    A better question might be: does he want to stay? I think it will depend on several things
    1) where he thinks he has the best chance to win a SB ring. If we had won in 2007 - I think he would be more willing to leave.
    2) Brady is a big reason why he came here. If/when Brady resigns with the Patriots - it increases the odds he will stay
    3) Leverage - if Kraft and BB think he's serious...they might up the ante
    4) BB has been fairly supportive of him. Apart from send his azz home when being late, BB supported Moss when he was accused of taking plays off.

    What about the part in the story where he says his agent is a lazy S.O.B and he feels his public marketability should be pushed..I was thinking that he is pretty much disliked around the country except for Pats fans right now. What do you think Moss would be a good spokesman for? Rolling Papers? What if they put his face on a pack of Zig Zags?

    LMAO.  Apart from sport related stuff (i.e., Gatorade, Nike, Under Armour) - I can't say that he would be a good choice for much else.  In order for that to happen, his PR people would have to do a personality makeover for him...y'now...show him helping out at the special olympics or serving food to the poor during Thanksgiving...

    How about seeing him on Dancing with the Stars???

    That's actually a possibility now that you mention it.

    Not that the Boston Herald is a leading sports news site, but it seems like the Globe is always a day late and a dolla short...

    there is always the franchise tag if the pats choose to use it.this is the year the pats need to pay the guys they want to keep.being its an uncapped year.why wait to pay someone when its back to a cap year.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/06/02/randy-moss-aims-to-generate-interest-from-other-teams/ then here are the ones in this ad here saying moss would have a better shot at a championship somewhere else.but saying its a possibility with the pats.
