Receiver Randy Moss has never held a retirement press conference. He didn’t even issue a statement in his own words. Instead, agent Joel Segal let it be known after Moss didn’t realize any big-money offers early in free agency that Moss was calling it quits.
Moss finally has spoken on the issue. He golfed in the Boston area on Thursday, and Ian Meropol of WEEI and WAAF morning show co-host Lyndon Byers caught up with Moss in the parking lot, asking Moss if they’ll see him in Gillette Stadium again this year.
“No,” Moss said. “I’m done.”
So why was he in Boston?
“I’m just here golfing, minding my business,” Moss said.
Folks will continue to be skeptical about his retirement. We’ve been told multiple times that Moss would return under the right circumstances, something that Jay Glazer of FOX also reported last Sunday. And Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently said that he’d welcome Moss back with open arms.
Then again, maybe Brady was “lubed up” when he said that.
