Randy Moss stays with the Patriots for three more years

Randy Moss stays with the Patriots for three more years The wide variety of rumors surrounding the future of New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss can finally come to an end - the All-Pro receiver signed a 3-year deal with the Pats on Monday. The Patriots signed the receiver for 3 more years, a deal worth $27 million - guaranteed $15 million, including a $12 million signing bonus. He allegedly turned down a much better deal from the Philadelphia Eagles to stay with the Patriots. The news was first published on Moss' own website, followed by a confirmation coming out of the Pats central. "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. I'm ready to get back. We have some unfinished business to take care of," Randy Moss wrote on his website.

 "What Randy did for our team last year was outstanding. He is one of our most consistent, competitive and team-oriented players and it is undoubtedly a relationship we are excited to continue,"  Patriots coach Bill Belichick said in a statement, after the deal was sealed.

 Last season Randy Moss had 98 receptions for 1,493 yards, second-highest in his 10-year NFL career and the eighth time he had 1,000 receiving yards. He also broke the NFL record with 23 touchdown receptions.
