    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots did not designate Randy Moss as a franchise player Thursday, but there was no word from the team on whether they had reached a contract agreement with the wide receiver or are allowing him to become a free agent.

    Teams had until 4 p.m. to designate one player as a franchise player if they wished. Only 11 teams did that, not including the Patriots. If Moss and the Patriots have agreed to a multiyear contract, it cannot be announced until Feb. 29.

    After taking a pay cut when he was traded by Oakland to New England last April, Moss had an outstanding season. He set the NFL record with 23 touchdown catches in a season and totaled 98 receptions for 1,493 yards.

    He repeatedly has praised quarterback Tom Brady, who has said he wants Moss back.

    Last year the Patriots designated cornerback Asante Samuel as a franchise player but agreed not to do it again this year.

    That's my guess.

    if you're Randy Moss, would you want to go anywhere else?
    Screw the money. You already have plenty of that. NE still gives you a pretty good chance of getting a ring.
