Wilfork: 'We never had problems with Randy'

FOXBORO — In a lengthy question-and-answer session at his locker this afternoon, Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork talked about how close he had grown to Randy Moss in the three-plus seasons the two played together, and that he never saw Moss as a distraction — contrary to statements made by former Patriot Tedy Bruschi.

Bruschi, currently an analyst for ESPN, said on Wednesday “there [were] some players frustrated with Randy. … He’s saying the right things, doing the right things in front of the media. But inside that locker room he’s turning into the same player he was toward the end of his time in Oakland.”

“We’ve never had problems with Randy. Our locker room is our locker room. We’ve never had an issue. I can’t remember an issue that we had. I don’t know what Tedy’s bringing up,” Wilfork said of Bruschi. “That’s not an issue in this...

Moss: 'Things didn't go according to plan'

On Thursday, Randy Moss spoke with the media in Minnesota following his first practice after Wednesday's trade that sent the wide receiver to the Vikings.

 

Some reports have indicated that Moss felt hurt when he learned of the trade. He was asked if it that was an accurate assessment of his feelings.

 

"No, I've been traded before," Moss said. "No, the hurt ... I was more hurt when I left here [Minnesota]. I think when I got traded from New England to here it was more of an understanding. I've said time and time again that this is not football, man, this is a job. This is a business ... Did I want to get traded out of New England? I don't really know what that answer is."

 

Moss was asked about a possible contract extension with the Vikings and gave an answer that perhaps best gave his perspective on why he was dealt.

 

"I really don't want to get into...

Welker: 'Disappointing' Moss wanted trade

FOXBORO — Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said Thursday it was "a little disappointing" to know that Randy Moss had requested a trade early in the season, especially in the wake of how he interacted with the team throughout the early stages of the 2010 season.

"I think that was kind of a difficult thing," Welker said. "Just because he was the guy always giving pep talks before the game, halftime, after the game. Not knowing that he was wanting to get traded the whole time was a little bit disappointing. But at the same time, he's doing what's best for him. It's a business. You just have to kind of roll with it."

Welker anticipates some aspects of the New England passing game changing.

"You know, I think Randy obviously brought a deep presence to him," Welker said. "Things may change a little bit, but we have some fast guys that can definitely go deep and stretch the field...

Francona on D&H: 'Tek's true colors showed'

Terry Francona joined Dale & Holley to take one last look at the 2010 season as well as look back at 2004 after the recent 30-for-30 documentary about the American League Championship series. The manager was asked about his decision to lift Jason Varitek during the season's final game so he could get an ovation from the Fenway crowd.

 

"I thought Tek's true colors really showed this year," Francona said. "Things didn't work out the way he expected them to. Going all the way back to when we acquired Victor [Martinez], this guy had a lot of chances to either want to go somewhere else or not show his leadership, and all he did was get better. He got more vocal. He got more open. He communicated. I just wanted him to have a chance to let the fans show their appreciation." 

 

On the bullpen, Francona said that the price tag was simply too high to make a trade at the deadline. "I thought we were...
