Tired of INTs, Brady froze out Moss


08:02 AM ET 05.13 | Randy Moss is, again, on the market. The truth is, Moss' 2010 resume makes him radioactive. ... Moss' main concern isn't playing football, it's making money. And anyone who's been listening for the last decade and has heard Bill Belichick lob the praise "football is important to him" realizes how ill-fitting Randy Moss would be here. Never mind the fact that, after the Jets game last year, quarterback Tom Brady basically froze Moss out for his final two games in New England. Brady was tired of throwing picks on balls intended for Moss (he threw two against the Jets; he had just two more the rest of the regular season). Moss could say all the right things and make all the promises. But in the end, he's too dangerous to employ.

So now it all comes out.

He's getting old.

And there you go...

Moss has HAD IT!!!

If he spent as much time concentrating on his skills as he did running his mouth he might still be useful to someone. Now he's become the flaming bag of dog poo on the porch that no one wants to extinguish.

"....too dangerous to employ."

So, who's going to sign him? He would be a great asset for any team hoping to win the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes.

Brady will host his own fashion show on E! after he retires.

I suppose it was about time for the press to print what all of us have known for a while. I suppose pretty soon we'll see Moss talking about how he's so happy to be with a great team like the Bengals, the Bills, the Toronto Argonauts, etc...

Did Brady come out and say this nonsense?? Highly unlikely. Moss just could not get that separation like he used to which led to Brady throwing elsewhere.

Throwing to Moss was like an interception waiting to happen.

May 13, 2011  08:40 AM ET

At least one of those picks happened because of a lazy route by Moss, the other looked like he aggressively went the wrong way. I'd be very happy never to see this clown running his mouth again.

Right here... I seriously doubt Brady said this so it's just conjecture by whatever is.

Wow stunning!

I wounder if Moss still wants to go back now!

May 13, 2011  08:49 AM ET

You know whats funny though?

They trade the dude to Minnesota, where the king of the int is QB. classic!

Horrible pic, a new one would be nice

This will be the make it or break it year for Brandon Tate as a WR, so far good return man...makeshift WR
I really want to see Taylor Price get an opportunity.

Moss gave us a few good years and in the end he gave us Ryan Mallet....thanks Randy
