Imagine getting a call for Bill Belichick because he wants you on his team and then you proceed to hang up on him? That was the case for Randy Moss all those many years ago when he made his exit from the Oakland Raiders.
The former New England Patriots receiver was named to the NFL’s 100 All-Time Team on Friday during an NFL Network special.
Moss was part of a panel of players and coaches that included Bill Belichick, and they all started to reminisce about things that happened during their career.
One of the stories pertained to the 2007 trade that brought Moss to New England where he explained that he didn’t believe Belichick was calling him, so he proceeded to hang up on him.
“So, my phone rings, I’m in line going to the club,” Moss said. “And so my phone rings, and I didn’t know the number, and I said … ‘Hello, who is this.’ ‘ … Hello, this is Bill Belichick,’ Moss said while impersonating Belichick. ” … I said, ‘Man, stop playing on my phone.’ And I hung the phone up. So, then he calls me back probably within 60 seconds and said, ‘No, Randy, this is Bill.’ So, you know, I hung up on the coach.”
