On Friday, I wrote about Randy Moss’ return to New England in a Minnesota Vikings uniform. Like so much else in the NFL, this event was overshadowed by all things Brett Favre. Though Moss was limited to one reception for eight yards — he did draw a couple of helpful penalties, and would have surely caught a touchdown were it not for pass interference — he didn’t cede the spotlight willingly. Moss gave one of his classic press conferences, in which he announced he would be sticking to self-interviews for the remainder of the season, followed by words of praise for his old team and little nice to say about his new (though once old) one.
Who knows why Moss says and does these things? But his remarks did convey some sense, however foggy, that being a millionaire further padding his millions may not be as fun as playing a game he loves with his friends. Especially since his role in the Minnesota offense doesn’t look much different. So far, he has just gone from clearing things out over the middle for Wes Welker to clearing things out over the middle for Percy Harvin.
UPDATE: And the Vikings have waived Randy Moss.
