Moss Plans to Go Without An Agent

According to his former agent, New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss plans to finish his career without an agent, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports.

DiPiero e-mailed the following message to media members, including PFT.com:

"Randy has talked to me for a while about finishing his career without an agent and recently told me that as a veteran entering his entering his 13th season, he no longer believed he needs an agent.

"He told me he would be sending me official notice of his decision which he did last week.

"It has been a privilege representing him all these years and to have had a close-up view as we all watched a high school kid, who was this incredible 'phenom,' grow into a man and one of the greatest NFL players of all time. What has been most satisfying is to see him give back to our local community, especially to the kids. Randy has a soft spot for kids and when he does things for them, he does it for the right reasons. I will continue to catch him on TV each Sunday and root for him to get a ring before he retires."

Moss likely has someone handling his day-to-day activities, including his off-field business ventures. By opting to proceed with his NFL career without representation, Moss may save a few percentage points of salary, but it's my opinion that he is taking an unnecessary financial and professional risk by not having a skilled negotiator working on his behalf.

I hear Andre Melton is available.
