A Tom Brady-Randy Moss reunion? It's not out of the question, at least as far as the Patriots' quarterback is concerned.
Asked this morning on his weekly radio interview with WEEI in Boston about a report out of West Virginia that Moss would consider coming out of retirement, but only if he can play with the Patriots, Brady said he'd welcome the idea.
"You never know in the NFL," Brady said when asked if he'd be surprised to find himself throwing to Moss again. "I talked to Randy just before training camp started. I love Randy, one of the greatest receivers in the history of the game. One of the greatest players I've ever had the chance to play with, and I love the guy, so. Unfortunately I don’t make personnel decisions. I'd still have all my friends here. Troy [Brown] would still here here. David Patten would still be here. Deion [Branch] would never have left, but I've seen so many guys move on over the years, and then guys come back, so who knows? You never know what the situation will be next week for that matter..."
Brady isn't sure what Moss would do if given the opportunity to play again for the Patriots, but the quarterback said he'd embrace the idea.
"I can’t get into his brain at all but I love the guy," Brady said. "He's a friend of mine. If he ever did have the opportunity to come back, I'd certainly welcome him with open arms.”
Moss was traded last season to the Vikings, who wound up releasing him because he failed to produce on the field and was a locker room "cancer," according to then head coach Brad Childress. He finished the season with Tennessee, but was not retained this season.
After failing to reach agreement with any teams on a free agent contract, Moss, announced his retirement earlier this summer.
