Pioli explaining why the Pats took a shot on Moss

For years, we’ve believed that the Patriots decided to trade for receiver Randy Moss in 2007 after seeing for themselves that he still can run like, as Bobby Bowden once described Moss’ speed, a "scalded dog." But the clincher had nothing to do with speed. Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli explained during a Monday visit to PFT Live that the moment came after he told Moss that he’d have to take a significant reduction in his salary. Moss said he didn’t care, that he just wanted to play for a winner. The Pats believed him, and the rest is history.
