    I find it really nice that he went to Marquise Hill's funeral.

    In 2001, he signed an 8 year $75 Million contract with an $18 million signing bonus so if you add that to his annual salary as reported by the NFLPA website of $20 (add up annual salary which doesn't include bonuses IIRC)
    it totals $38 million or so in that neighborhood...Remember he renegotiated the back end of the deal as part of the trade to come to the Patriots so whatever number he reported to Mr. Kraft, it was a healthy one.

    Moss will be with the Pats until he retires. He realizes that by being a Patriot and having Tom Brady as his QB, he'll forever be known as one of the top receivers ever in the NFL. Not only has his reputation been elevated, his place in history has been firmly established.

    I see the Pats pay Moss more money, but still get him for a bargain. Nowhere else will he be so challenged, focused, driven and successful. Moss is now a true blessing to the Patriots team and fans and to the NFL overall.

    In a sense the Pats, and we their fans, are very lucky that Randy went to Oakland for 2 seasons and felt the sting of losing while collecting a hefty paycheck. It's the opposite of a guy like Ty Law who is a fierce competitor but clearly valued his paycheck over championships. I don't hold that against Ty but it is patently obvious to me that Randy is more interested than winning than collecting a huge paycheck so long as the Pat's offer is reasonable.

    I'll be shocked if he doesn't retire a Patriot after signing a longterm deal in the offseason.

    Look at Mike Lowell.. He could have got more money elsewhere but chose to stay with a team he liked (and also the fans)

    Whatever Moss made, it's a drop in the bucket compared to Kraft (or should I say his father-in-law?) makes.

    As a Patriot fan, I can say I'm proud to have Randy Moss' name associated with the Patriots...very proud

    As New England sports fans, we probably don't realize how fortunate we are to have the professional sports organizations we have here. In particular, the Patriots, Red Sox and now the Celtics all have a bunch of MEN who are proud to wear their uniforms....WOW, that freakin' humbles me.
