Randy Moss: Heart and happiness in New England

While appearing on KFAN 1130 in Minneapolis on Wednesday, free agent Randy Moss dropped a few loud hints that he would like to return to the Patriots next season.

“If you ask me where my heart and where I’m happy is,” Moss said, “I love Tom Brady and I love playing for coach Belichick.”

Really? Then why didn’t he do what Belichick asked him to last year and not complain about his contract situation to the media? Had he kept working hard, showed a little patience and let the situation play itself out, then maybe he never would have been traded. Instead, he reminded people at every turn that he didn’t have a contract and essentially got himself traded out of New England.

But now he wants back in after a couple of miserably months in Minnesota (whom he also said he would “love” to play for again) and Tennessee. Interesting. If I were Belichick, I’d take Moss back in a heartbeat. Why, you ask? The great thing about Randy Moss is that he’s not very hard to figure out. When his team is winning or when he feels like he has something to prove, he plays with hunger and motivation. He gave up in Oakland because he didn’t have to prove himself and because the Raiders were losers. When he was dealt to New England, he once again wanted to show people how good he was and he preformed at a high level because he loved being a part of a winner. But that eventually wore off so he made money his main priority and then promptly fell off the face of the earth after he was traded.

But now he’s motivated again and he would probably come real cheap after the way his season ended last year. If Belichick was interested, I’m willing to bet that Moss would jog to New England just to have one more chance to play for a winner.
