Brady: Moss is 'huge' part of team

 

FOXBORO  --  Tom Brady believes in Randy Moss and he made that clear on Wednesday morning in Foxboro. Brady said during his weekly press conference with reporters that no one works harder to prepare himself for the upcoming game than Moss. "He's a great competitor," Brady said. "He works extremely hard. He's a huge part of this team. They don't break down all the film and see what we see and see what the other team is trying to do, game-plan wise. Randy's a great part of this team. He's a leader, he's a captain. He's a great teammate for all of us. You're not going to find anybody in that locker room that doesn't enjoy being around him. I love playing with the guy." Brady was reminded of the criticism thrown at Moss this week from former teammate Cris Carter and hall of famer Jerry Rice.

Cameron, 36, said he feels that playing in Boston will rejuvenate him. "Being a part of this every single day is going to bring some added youth to my spirit," he said, referring to the intensity level of Boston and the history of the ballpark. "It's pretty special for me."

 

Cameron said he didn't think his outfield skills have diminished. "I think I've played Gold Glove-caliber center field my whole career, I don't always get recognized for it, but the numbers speak for themselves," he said.

 

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said the Red Sox have targeted Cameron for some time. "He's been one of the most consistent players in the game," Epstein said. "He's going to hit his 25 home runs every year and play outstanding defense, sees...
