After splitting with longtime agent Tim DiPiero, Patriots receiver Randy Moss will represent himself for the rest of his career - this according to DiPiero.

In an emailed statement, DiPiero confirmed that he is no longer Moss' agent, ending a relationship that dates before Moss' being drafted in the first round in 1998.

"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 13th season, he no longer believed he needs an agent," wrote DiPiero. "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 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."
