For Randy Moss, signing with the 49ers isn’t just about showing people he can still play. He also wants to prove he has what it takes to be a supportive teammate.
“I think when it comes to the world-wide sports media, I’ve gotten a bad rap … not being a team player and things like that,” Moss said Monday after signing a one-year deal with the Niners. “I really don’t want to get into that because that’s not what I’m here for. I think that one thing I’d like the sports world to understand is the love and the passion I have for the game of football. I think every player wants to win and every organization wants to win.”
Moss could perhaps be referring to the harsh criticisms delivered by Cris Carter and Warren Sapp, two former teammates of Moss’ who both are now part of the media. And after abundant instances of Moss quitting on teammates throughout his career, it’s clear why he’s earned that “bad rap.” You just think Moss would be wise enough to acknowledge the same.
