Back to work for everyone this morning, and another less-than-exciting news day. However, after a bit of digging – here are some headlines to kick-off your Tuesday.
The majority of the headlines this morning are about the news that Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss is looking for a new agent.
In case you were unaware, Moss fired his original one in Tim DiPiero on Sunday, who had represented him all the way back to his high school days. According to the Boston Herald, the reason had to do with lack of marketing opportunities, which the veteran receiver is now apparently looking for.

Kudos to Ian Rapoport, who spoke directly to Moss and first reported this story. The below quote more or less gives us Moss’ reasoning behind the move.
“I’m still playing at a high level, I’m still marketable,” Moss told the Herald. “I’m looking for an agent that’s going to get out there and market my marketing ability, because I still feel like I can shoot commercials and do this and do that. I just need somebody that will get that off-the-field money, man, what I deserve.”
Some other headlines that came out late last night:

Video Tribute to Marquise Hill – Ian’s Patriots Blog
The above link was first pointed out by Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, and it’s a video that was put together by Hill’s former agent, Albert Elias. In the video Elias talks about his relationship with the late Patriot defensive player, with photos taking you all the way from when he was little all the way through high school, college, and into his adult life. It was certainly a life that was over far too soon.
It’s only 4-minutes long – and something you really need to see to appreciate what a big loss he was, as Hill is the first Patriot to ever pass away during his playing career.
