NFL | Former teammate says Randy Moss has strong work ethic

Tue, 14 Feb 2012 08:09:53 -0800

NFL Network analyst Heath Evans, a former teammate of retired WR Randy Moss with the New England Patriots, said Moss' drive will not be an issue in his return to football. "I trained with this guy in Boca (Raton, Fla.) every offseason - he is a nightmare to work out with. Many guys came in and out of those workouts, and they never showed up again," Evans said. "This guy knows how to get it done, he is rested. But it has to be the perfect environment (for a return) ... This guy is driven by guys around him that want to win. And so it is a very touchy situation: Where does he end up, and then how high is that ceiling depending on the quarterback, the coach and scenarios like that."
