Randy Moss said at Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday that is having a hard time coming to grips with being a decoy for the San Francisco 49ers.
Randy Moss, perhaps on the cusp of his first career Super Bowl title, isn't happy with his role with the San Francisco 49ers. At Media Day for Super Bowl XLVII on Tuesday, Moss said that "I still don't like my role" when asked about how he was being used within the offense. He is doing his best to come to grips with what he is tasked with, however, adding "one thing I've really had to understand is being a decoy."
"I understand my presence out on the field, that I don't always have to touch the ball to help the offense score touchdowns," Moss said. "Like I said, I don't really like that, but it's something that I'm used to. I had to grow to understand it."

Moss didn't sound frustrated or angry when talking with media, but that doesn't mean that the prolific wideout had to mince his words. He had no trouble proclaiming himself "the greatest wide receiver to ever play this game" when asked about his legacy. Moss also made it clear that he has no intention of hanging up his cleats and retiring after the season. When asked if he would return to the 49ers, Moss demurred:
"I don't know about that. Next question."
