The glass-half-full part of me likes this whole notion of Randy Moss's becoming his own agent, at least for the purposes of contractual matters. (The fact that he still wants to hire a pro to handle his off-the-field stuff leads me to believe that this was a fairly carefully thought-out decision.) Remember how amazed and delighted everyone was when ol '38 negotiated his own deal? (And he cut himself a fine deal indeed, especially on the back end.) OK, so I cut Moss the same slack. He's a sharp, aware guy, for all his reluctance to be warm and fuzzy, and despite the nearly endless caricatures of himself that have become grist for radio contrarians of the silly kind.
It looks like both sides are shaping up for a hail-and-farewell season. (If Rodney Harrison makes a play, Moss has scored the gamewinning touchdown in a Super Bowl.) If they manage to do that without egregious ill-will, then I suspect Moss will be perfectly capable of negotiating his way out of town at the end of what could be a fine season through what will likely be the last contract he ever signs.
