I think if I do any coaching, I would like to do it on the high school level, to have more time with family than would be possible for a college or professional coach. I just want to love my family and do a little fishing, that's about it.
It's hard to replace Kevin Faulk, but hopefully he can come in and be Woodhead and not try to be Kevin. I think we liked the things we saw out there, not just from him - from an offensive perspective. We win as a team; we lose as a team. You always can hold your head up high when you win and lower it when you lose. We'll just go back to the drawing board and hopefully we have a game plan for the Miami Dolphins.
"I'm 33 years old," Moss said earlier in 2010 NFL season. "I'm on my way out of this league. I'm not into it. As far as financial security for me and my family, I think that's something we need right now. My contract is over, I would like a new one. It's as simple as that."
Randy Moss at a charity softball game in February 2010, "You know the Patriots don't really pay, so when I got my second contract from them that was a blessing in disguise. I understand the business. I don't think they're going to re-sign me back. I'm not mad. I'm not bitter. It's just the way things are in this NFL, so like I said after this year I'll be looking for a new team. I think so. . . "
In 2005, on rumors that Terrell Owens might be joining Randy Moss as a Raider: "With his baggage and everything he's been through, and my baggage and what I've been through, I don't think that would work. As far as him compared to the league and myself, he don't talk to me, I don't talk to him, so we don't even have a relationship. No communication."
From the 2008 Super Bowl, with the Patriots, on how Randy Moss once saw his career ending: "I did want to retire a Viking, and the reason why is because of how I slipped on draft day. Coach (Denny) Green took a chance on me; the organization took a chance on me. The state, the fans, the players embraced me. That's something I wasn't used to, and I hadn't experienced that. ... For the Vikings to really take a chance and draft me, that's where I started, and that's where I wanted to finish."
Now that I’m older, I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it, the 49ers'. I don’t really live on numbers, I really live on impact and what you’re able to do out on the field. I really think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.
Kevin and I have followed each other since 1995 and I was asked a couple questions about his jersey, and I didn't really want to go into that. Me and Kevin have a long history, before I even became a Patriot. What he's accomplished here as a Patriot speaks high, high volumes, but being able to lose him for the year is very disappointing. I don't really have an answer or an explanation for wearing his jersey. That's my boy and I just wanted to put his jersey on just to represent him. There wasn't anything behind it, really.
Brett Farve on Randy Moss: "This is an exciting move, I think everybody feels that in the locker room. It.s rare you get to play with a future Hall of Famer and get to appreciate their talents up close. Randy Moss is a great player and his career speaks for itself. I.ve admired him from a distance for a long time and you can.t help but be impressed by the guy."
Randy Moss at a charity softball game in February 2010 on his situation with the New England Patriots, "That's not a knock on them. That's just how they run their organization," Moss added. "That's how it is. Put it like this, I guess that before I came there the philosophy was believing in their system. I think that's where they really don't pay guys because they have so much faith in their system. I didn't mean it as a knock against the organization. They just don't pay. If as an individual I'm not really in their future plans I would like to go elsewhere."
Randy Moss speaking regarding his situation to reporters at a charity softball game in February 2010, "I don't think they going to extend my contract here, I understand the beast, the nature of it. I think that just with what I think and what I know I don't think they're going to re-sign me back. So, after this season if there is not a lockout I'll be looking for a new team. I got a lot of respect for the Patriots and what they did for me and my family. So, the only thing I can do is just play this year out and see what my future holds after that."
