Im sure it can be a 1 year deal if the Patriots want it to remain so - its probably similar to the Stallworth deal in that they have an option on a 2nd,3rd and maybe 4th year for better money.
The Patriots will gauge his worth to the team - if he underperforms or simply overvalues his contribution to the team then he will be looking for a new team next year.
Maybe Moss is using this as a 1 year audition for another top team and big money, but then I guess he woud have taken a much bigger pay check in Green Bay.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
