Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was asked Tuesday about the comments made by Randy Moss on Monday.
Moss, in the final year of a three-year contract, told CBSSports.com that "it feels like I am not wanted" when it comes to a possible contract extension.
Belichick, however, was quick to praise Moss during a conference call Tuesday.
"I would just say on Randy that he is a professional," Belichick said. "He’s had a good training camp. He’s played very well since he’s been here. He’s played at a very high level and I hope that continues. He’s brought a lot of passion to the game – for the game – since he’s been here. He’s well liked and he’s well respected on the team."

WILMINGTON -- Fifteen members of the Bruins took to the ice Tuesday for the first captain's practice. Players scrimmaged and partook in drills before meeting with the media. One of the more popular questions was how much longer the captain, defenseman Zdeno Chara, would be a member of the team. Chara's contract expires after the season and negotiations haven't reached a point of a deal being imminent. Given that Chara will likely receive a longterm contract worth big money, he said that the Ilya Kovalchuk saga may be a reason as to why the sides have waited before getting serious in talks.
"The investigations and the new rule between the NHL and NHLPA about longterm contracts kind of put everything on a pause," Chara said. "We'll see what happens."
The new rule, put into place last week, prevents teams from circumventing the salary cap by tacking on extra years at minimal dollars in order to create a...
United States Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin announced his four wild-card picks on Monday, choosing Stewart Cink, Rickie Fowler, Zach Johnson and Tiger Woods.
The most notable of the four, of course, is Woods, a 14-time major champion and the No. 1 ranked player in the world. Woods missed the start of the 2010 PGA Tour season as he took a break from the sport following controversy surrounding his martial infidelity. Woods returned for The Masters, where he finished fourth. He also posted a top five in the US Open, which remain his only top 10 finishes in 2010 to date. He has played better of late, however, finishing 12th and 11th the last two weeks.
Woods has played in five Ryder Cups with a career mark of 10-13-2.
Cink and Johnson are both major champions with Ryder Cup experience and were viewed as favorites to be tabbed by Pavin. Fowler's selection comes as a minor surprise, as he has never...

"Tremendous progress" has been made on a new contract for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and the deal is close to being done, according to sources close to WEEI’s "Dennis & Callahan" show. (To listen to the audio of the report click here.) The Boston Herald is also reporting that the deal could be worth three years, $58 million.
The former NFL MVP is scheduled to earn $6.5 million this season in the final year of a six-year contract. While both the Patriots and Brady have been mostly mum about any sort of negotiations regarding a new deal, the quarterback said earlier this summer he’s “not into playing games” when it comes to hammering out a new deal.
"I just want to come out here and do the...
