New England Patriots: Randy Moss Re-signs

John LewisSenior Writer IMarch 3, 2008

The deal is said to come with guarantees of $15 million, which includes a $12 million signing bonus.   

"I want to take time out to thank all of the fans for their support and for wishing me well in my return to New England," therealrandymoss.com quotes him as saying. "I'm ready to get back. We have some unfinished business to take care of."

Moss set an NFL record with 23 touchdown catches and helped the Patriots reach the Super Bowl in his first season with the team, and his 124 career receiving touchdowns are fourth in NFL history.

While this is an important signing for the Patriots and Moss, I can't help but think the Pats won again.  Moss could've easily gotten a bigger payday from other contenders, but somehow New England worked out a deal that only guarantees $15 million.  So if Moss becomes a problem, the Pats can get out of this with little penalty.

Is it just me, or did Terrell Owens get $25 million guaranteed in Dallas

Personally, while I think Moss is one of biggest disruptions on a losing team, he deserves more money for what he did this year.

He was able to stay out of trouble until the week before the Super Bowl, but more importantly he was able to get back to what made him great earlier in his career.
