Pro Football Talk reported Saturday that the 49ers made it clear at the Combine that they were not intending to bring back Moss next season.
Moss seemed to be disappointed with his lack of playing time, even though he didn’t vocally complain most of the season.
Moss said in January that he wants to play another season, though he said “next question” when asked if he wanted to return to the 49ers.
Moss sent a tweet Saturday evening a few hours after the report was published, and he made it seem like he’s anticipating and accepting of a split:
Wished we could’ve finished the job!!thanks for the opportunity an good luck in the future 9ers

Moss just turned 36 and played last season after taking the 2011 season off. He had 26 catches for 406 yards and three touchdowns. Though he is still a deep threat, he offers little else at this point. He was said to be a good influence on the Niners’ other receivers, but his attitude is always a concern.
It’s hard to imagine too many teams being interested in signing him, and it’s hard to imagine him being too productive for anyone else.
