Brady doesn't want to talk about his deal, Moss

Yesterday was all about Tom Brady and the potential for him getting a new deal -- originally it was reported by the Boston Herald that Brady had received a three-year, $58 million offer from the Pats and was close to inking. That was semi-refuted by more reports from ESPN, who, just a little while later, reported seperately that four-year deal could be done before the season .

Fortunately, Brady hopped on WEII with Dennis and Callahan Wednesday morning and the guys were able to force him to answer all the relative questions about the Patriots, his possible contract and Randy Moss' apparent unhappiness with his lack of a deal.

Okay, actually, when asked about having a new deal "in his desk drawer" on Sunday, Brady was fairly noncommittal.

"Well, I think everyone on our team would," "Every player on our team would, every coach would, but that's just not the way things work."

He did, of course, "admit" that he and the Patriots were talking, but really only so much in that he "admitted" they talk about stuff.

"I think there's always communication," "I've been in communication with them on a lot of things. It's pretty uncomfortable talking about a contract ... I don't want to get into it. For me it's the same as it's been -- I want to find a way to score some touchdowns against the Bengals."

Brady was also asked about Moss' state of well-being and whether or not he was concerned about the wideout's contract.

"Randy is my locker mate, and he's one of my great friends on the team," Brady said. "He and I have a lot of conversations that are certainly very personal to the two of us. This is the third team he's been on, so he knows what the business is and he also knows what he can bring to the team."

Without reading TOO deeply into what Brady is or is not saying, it's definitely worth noting that on this weekly radio show, he's almost always open about almost everything. But he even managed to (kind of) skirt the issue about Moss returning.

"I would love that," Brady said. "Of course I would -- I would love that. It's not my decision. I think this is the type of things that's out of every player's controls -- we're not general managers. I would to have Logan [Mankins], I would love to have other players that are extremely important to our team. From my standpoint as a quarterback, I love Randy and I would love to play with him for a long time."

If he's shifting the focus from his contract/Moss' status over to the first game (which is the standard athlete line, even if it's true), that means he'd rather not say exactly how he feels about those two particular subjects.

Maybe he's worried he's jinxing them, or -- more likely -- he's just smart enough not to offer a potentially damaging bomb on the radio just before the Pats start their season.

Seems that Kraft and the Patriots like most teams are real reluctant to sign any long term deals. Both partys involved have trust that things will get done. Only concern as i see it would be the players and  injuries that could happen.

The fact that the Pats could have drafted Dez Bryant but traded the pick has me thinking that the Pats will give Moss a 1 or 2 year extention at a time.  He will not get a long term deal from the Pats.  I don't see them letting Moss go unless he starts acting up.  First he needs to stop saying things publicly it only causes distractions.  Second go out and show everyone that you are a beast and the contract issue will take care of itself and last but not least don't get in hoodie's doghouse or you will really be done in New England.

Why is everyone busting on Moss.  The guy has proved his All Pro status year after year and warrants the respect for playing at the top of his game and never playing like a punk.  But Randy is misunderstood and had problems over 10 years ago so label him at trouble maker and tattoo his forehead with the word "Punk" because that is how he is being treated.  Brady handled the questions to him quite easily because when it comes to Brady's numbers and looking good on the field Moss not only comes up big but more importantly the double teams and his ability to take the strong safety deep with him opens up the middle for Welker and the weak side wide receiver.

For 3 weeks not one writer was busting on Revis holding out when he had 3 years left on his contract and basically said he was going to let his teammates down and sit out until he had his contract.  But here is Moss in camp and one day he is asked a question by a reporter and he answers about the frustration of not having his contract extended and being frustrated.  But unlike Revis, he is in camp.  The Jets could have and should have told Revis your here for 3 more years until you get your ass in camp and then maybe we will talk.  He had one good year and Revis is the Messiah.  Moss has 10 years of being an all pro and the media villifies him for actions in his late teens.  The man is 33 and if you do the math that was 14 years ago.  Tom Brady said Moss is his locker mate and the tandem has allowed for that entire offense to open up.  There is no doubt that Brady wants Moss to continue as one of the big weapons on the Patriots as long as Brady is playing there as it make Brady look like the man.  Moss used the word frustrated and he is a problem.  Get real and find some real quality sports news.
