Randy Moss: 'Feels like I am not wanted' by Patriots

randy-moss.JPGNew England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss said that the lack of contract offer from the team makes him feel "not wanted."

 "When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted," Moss said in an exclusive interview with CBSSports.com. "I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling -- feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down. I am speaking from an individual standpoint. I don't know about Tom [Brady's] or whoever else's contract.

"I am a little older and understand the nature of the business -- the older you get the more your skills supposedly diminish, but I think I am getting wiser in how to use my physical skills. That's the frustrating part when you put so much heart and desire into things and feel like you are not wanted."
Moss, 33, is in the final year of a three-year deal with the Patriots and is scheduled to make $6.4 million this season. This interview expressing frustration is the first time he's gone on record since training camp began.

Like Moss, quarterback Tom Brady is also in the final year of his contract, which means the organization would have to spend, spend, spend in order to keep both stars.
