Reduced to a role player last season, Randy Moss still made it to a Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers. If the team returns to the game's biggest stage next season, the wide receiver likely will not join them.
Moss through the yearsTake a look at photos of Randy Moss through the years.
It can't be called a surprise. The 36-year-old Moss totaled just 28 receptions all season. Absent from his game were the speed, power and elusive feet that had terrorized defenses during most of his 14-season tenure in the NFL.
Moss was widely praised by his 49ers' coaches and teammates as a positive force in the locker room and meeting room. He's always been one of the smartest players around, and it's not inconceivable another team comes calling.
If it is, indeed, the end, we're sure to see Moss again on some August day in Canton, Ohio.
UPDATE: Moss thanked the 49ers in a tweet Saturday, indicating his time with the team is over:
Wished we could've finished the job!!thanks for the opportunity an good luck in the future 9ersâ Randy Moss (@RandyMoss) March 3, 2013
