We noted over the weekend that Randy Moss would end his retirement and return to the field if the Patriots came calling. That sounds good to Tom Brady.
Brady said on WEEI today that he loved playing with Moss from 2007 until Moss was traded to the Vikings four games into 2010, and he’d love the opportunity to do it again.
“You never know in the NFL,” Brady said, via the Boston Herald. “I love Randy, he’s one of the greatest receivers in the history of the game, one of the greatest players I’ve had a chance to play with. But unfortunately, I don’t make personnel decisions.”
The person who does make the personnel decisions, Bill Belichick, sent Moss packing last year, and Moss didn’t do anything after that to make Belichick think he made the wrong decision. So it’s tough to see why the Patriots would want Moss in 2011 if they didn’t want him in 2010.
And Brady said he has no idea if Moss even wants to end his retirement to play in New England again. But if Moss does have a second stint with the Patriots, Brady thinks it will go a lot better than Moss’s second stint with the Vikings.
“Who knows? I can’t get into his brain,” Brady said. “I love the guy, he’s a great friend of mine, and if he ever did come back and play, I’d welcome him with open arms.”
