Randy Moss approached the media throng as the Patriots’ practice session ended, stepped into the middle of it, and said he’d answer three questions.
Here is the transcript of the 61-second exchange:
First impressions of the team so far
Well, everything is good. It’s a fresh start, it’s a new year, um, and everybody come in very enthusiastic and ready to get this thing going. So only thing I can say man, is I’m ready to come to work.
Impressions of veteran wide receivers Torry Holt and David Patten
I like everything – I love all the additions. The younger guys look good, the older veterans look good. Like I say, I think that Bill has really emphasized that this is a new year so going to get back to basics and do things the right way so I’m very excited about this season, not just for me but just for the whole team just to see how far we can go.
Impressive that Wes Welker was out there so soon after surgery?
Very impressive to me. I’m a big fan of Welker’s, way before he came here, back when he was in Miami, so I can’t wait to have him back on the field, whenever that day comes, so sky’s the limit so we’ll see what happens.
As he began to walk away, a reporter asked if the sky was the limit for him as well. Over his shoulder, Moss said, “You better believe it.”
