Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke about the team’s trade of receiver Randy Moss to the Vikings for the first time on Sunday. Kraft was interviewed for the NFL Network by former Globe reporter Albert Breer.
“Randy Moss was someone who was very special for our team. You know, moves like that, you’re always ambivalent about … it’s (coach Bill Belichick's) decision , I think he makes pretty good football decisions, but I had a chance to talk with Randy the morning before we did it, and it was a wonderful conversation, and I thanked him for the great contributions he made here.
“He thanked me for the time here, he really said some nice things. ... He said being here and part of this team was one of the most special experiences in his life. … We wish him well in Minnesota, except when he’s playing us on Halloween night.”
