For a player who pretty much talked his way out of New England, Randy Moss sure does like to talk about how much he enjoyed playing here.

The enigmatic receiver, who bounced from Minnesota to Tennessee last season following the stunning Oct. 6 trade that sent him from the Patriots to the Vikings, told a Minnesota radio station he'd love to play in New England again.

"If you're asking me where my heart and where I'm happy is, I love playing with Tom Brady. I love being coached by Bill Belichick," Moss said during an interview today on KFAN 1130 in Minneapolis.

Moss, 34, will be a free agent once the lockout ends. He finished the season with 28 receptions for 393 yards and five touchdowns overall.

He caught just 19 passes after being dealt by the Patriots following a Week 4 win over the Dolphins in which he did not have a reception and reportedly had a halftime dispute with quarterbacks coach Bill O'Brien.

Moss said in the interview he remains and admirer of the Patriots' head coach.

"I think that just the success as a wide receiver and everything that the New England Patriots stand for, you know, I'm a big fan of Bill Belichick's," Moss said. "I really am, and not just on the field. I'm a fan of his off the field because, you know, the little grouchy man that you see on-camera is not what you see off-camera."
