Randy Moss, part of the 49ers NFC Championship team this past season, has seemingly hinted that IF he returns for another season in 2013, it won’t be with San Francisco. The Niners have also made it clear, according to a league source at profootballtalk.com, that the team wasn’t interested in bringing Moss back. For the most part, the usually vocal Randy Moss was silent for much of the season. He was praised by teammates and coaching staff for being a positive influence in the locker room and on the field despite his limited touches. The team, though, made it clear at the scouting combine that they weren’t interested in re-signing him. He probably didn’t help his case by finally spouting off during super bowl week, talking about (among other things) his position as the greatest wide receiver in league history, his views on gay rights, and his short history (8 weeks) playing for the Tennessee Titans. Moss’s future in the league is in question, as age is becoming a factor more and more every year, but the question remains… did his season with the Niners prove that Moss has turned back the clock enough to get a new deal with a different team and keep his playing career alive? Or did it just prove even further that his time is up? Moss, now almost 36 years old, totaled just 28 receptions all season. Absent from his game were the speed, power and elusive feet that had made him a force in the league for almost 15 years. He simply didn’t perform or produce in 2012. Moss himself tweeted a thank you to the Niners, indicating that his time in the bay was over. Could the wild and colorful career of Randy Moss be just about over? Or is this just another roadblock? If his career IS over, he finishes up with numbers that definitely put him in the hall of fame when he is eligible. Receptions 982 Receiving yards 15,292 Receiving Touchdowns 156 Interceptions 1 Points Scored 950   A figure of both considerable skill and at the same time controversy, one can assume that there won’t be another player quite like Randy Moss The post Randy Moss won’t return to 49ers in 2013 appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
