Randy Moss mellowed out with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012, but he’s oddly remaining quiet when it comes to his future in the NFL. According to CBS Sports, Moss is apparently receiving interest from teams around the league but he has yet to comment about what that means about a possible return in 2013, which is very un-Moss-like.
Why is this important? I’m told some teams have interest in Moss (I don’t believe the 49ers are one of them) and want to speak with him about some sort of role. Few teams think Moss is still a starter, but there are some that believe he can be a valuable contributor.

Moss wasn’t a star in San Francisco, instead he did something he’s never ever done in his career before: he willingly took a secondary, supporting role on a championship caliber team. One of the underplayed stories surrounding the 2012 San Francisco 49ers is the fact that Randy Moss kept his mouth shut for virtually the entire season and was happy to do so.
That is apparently still Moss’ M.O., as he’s gone radio silent since declaring he was better than Jerry Rice at the Super Bowl. Since the end of the season, no one has heard from Moss or anyone inside his camp, which means for the first time in his career Randy Moss is actually sitting somewhere thinking out football.
If he retires, it wouldn’t be the first time and if he returns it also wouldn’t be a first. No matter what Randy Moss does it can’t be surprising, yet it probably will be just because that’s just the very essence of Randy Moss.
