Agent: Randy Moss will call it a career

Former Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss has decided to retire, his agent Joel Segal told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Moss, who played in New England from 2007 until early last season, accumulated 954 receptions, 14,858 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns over the course of a 13-year career. He was a first-round pick of Minnesota in 1998 out of Marshall University, and also played for Oakland, New England and Tennessee.
Moss was a free agent, and as late as March, he spoke about the possibility of returning to New England.

“I’€™m a big fan of Bill Belichick. I really am,” Moss told KFAN Radio. “And not just on the field. I’€™m a fan of his off the field, because the little grouchy man you see on camera is not what you see off camera. I’€™ve grown and I’€™ve started to respect the game, first and foremost. But if you’€™re asking me where my heart is and I’€™m happiest, I love playing with Tom Brady, I love being coached by Bill Belichick.”

However, the market for Moss wasn’t what he hoped it might be, and as a result, the 34-year-old wide receiver has decided to retire.

“After weighing his options and contemplating offers, he’s decided to retire,” Segal told Schefter.
