With six games to go and receiver Randy Moss already turning down two teams that made in-season offers, it’s looking highly unlikely that Moss will be playing for anyone in 2011, or beyond.
“Football had me blinded to a lot of things going on in my family,” Moss said this week in his West Virginia hometown, as he distributed boxes of food to the underprivileged. “A lot of things didn’t hit me until my life slowed down but now I’m able to kiss my girlfriend in the morning and my daughter. You sacrifice a lot of time as a professional athlete, and you don’t take time to slow down. . . .
“I just gave up football because football is not me; football is what I do,” Moss added. “I’m a loving father, I’m a loving son and I love my lord and savior, Jesus Christ.”
(The over/under on reader comments suggesting he actually wants to play for the Broncos is 24.5.)
Regardless, Moss walked away because he didn’t get the kind of financial offers he thought he deserved. If an offer like that comes at some point between now and January 1, it’ll be interesting to see whether he changes his tune.
