Randy Moss: Tennessee Titans 'blackballed' me in 2010


Randy Moss has come a long way from his failed eight-week stint with the Tennessee Titans back in 2010.

The San Francisco 49ers wide receiver told reporters this week he enjoyed a strong relationship with former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, but those good feelings didn't extend to some of Fisher's assistants.

Moss told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean on Wednesday that some of the Titans' coaches didn't like him, going so far to say he was "blackballed."

"Why they claimed me, I really don't know," Moss said. "There were some things where I could really tell I really wasn't liked, and that was coming from the coaching staff. To be able to still make plays ... there were some things going on in-house that I probably won't speak upon until I write my book."

Moss was a ghost in Tennessee, pulling down just six catches for 80 yards as the Titans fell apart down the stretch. Asked again why he was unpopular with some of the staff, Moss said, "I don't want to get into that."

Moss has been forthright and filled with insight this week. The 35-year-old wideout has spread far more cheer than ill will down here in New Orleans, but admitted his experience in Tennessee caused him to wonder if his time in the NFL was over. Obviously, that wasn't the case.
