Randy Moss could be the next valuable veteran to be let go by the Patriots. Moss is in the last year of his contract and isn’t happy about his current contract situation with the team.
“When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted,” Moss explained to William Bendetson of 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.”
Normally you could assume that this is another wide-receiver stirring the pot by adding some drama to his situation but the Patriots have a history of letting veterans walk.
The team has traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders and let Asante Samuel leave via free agency to the Philadelphia Eagles in years past. The Patriots still have yet to give a new contract to the franchise’s most valuable player Tom Brady and they seem to be ok moving on without Pro-Bowl left guard Logan Mankins.
Moss is aware of his position with the team and understand the nature of the business.
“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,” Moss said. “That’s the frustrating part when you put so much heart and desire into things and feel like you are not wanted.”
If players like Donald Driver can get a two-year extension, Randy Moss will defiantly draw interest from several ball clubs.
