Moss at a loss: Feels unwanted by Patriots

Randy Moss seems to be at a loss with the New England Patriots after the wide receiver expressed his frustration about his current contract situation.

The wide receiver’s contract expires at the end of this season, and despite the season not starting until Sunday for the Patriots, Moss is already looking towards next year.

"When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted," Moss told William Bendetson of

"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 [Patriots quarterback] 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 said.

The 33-year-old is entering the last year of his contract which will pay him $6.4million this season. Moss had a productive season last year, catching 83 passes for 1,246 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Patriots could find themselves without two of their biggest names next season, with Brady also out of contract next year. But with New England unlikely to let Brady leave, it could be Moss who finds himself looking for a new team, a decision he’s expecting.

"I don't think I'm realistically in the future plans of the Patriots. But if the New England Patriots don't want me in their future, [it's a business]. I understand,” he told the Boston Herald earlier in the year.
