Randy Moss did not play in the NFL last season, but he announced last week he’s planning to make a comeback for the upcoming season. Warren Sapp, his former teammate in Oakland, says he wouldn’t sign the wide receiver.
“I’ve already played with [Randy] Moss, and what Cris Carter said — first time Cris ever said anything I agree with, I mean it’s the first time that he actually said something with some substance,” Sapp said on The Dan Patrick Show. “I just call Randy a frontrunner.”
Cris Carter is another former teammate of Moss. Carter called Randy a quitter during a recent interview. Sapp then explained the difference between being a quitter and a frontrunner.
“When everything is good, it’s wonderful, it’s great,” Sapp said. “But when a little adversity hits, it’s ‘No, no, no. Don’t ask me to help us come up out of this.’”
Both Sapp and Carter are correct. Not only did Randy quit on the Raiders, but he essentially forced the Patriots to trade him. After that, he “vomited” on the Vikings‘ locker room, and then hardly contributed with the Titans. Moss’ career numbers don’t lie — he is a frontrunner (or quitter, if you prefer).
Here is the audio of Sapp’s comments:
