In an interview with KFAN 1130 AM in Minnesota today, former Patriots receiver Randy Moss let it be known that he still has a soft spot in his football heart for the Patriots.

"If you ask me where my heart and where I'm happy is ... I love Tom Brady and I love playing for coach Belichick," Moss said according to the station's Twitter account.

That doesn't come as a big surprise.

The bigger question is whether the Patriots would consider bringing Moss back as a free agent.

One of the big Patriots topics this offseason has been an outside receiver and how badly the team needs to add one. Opinion among analysts seems split.

Some look at the playoff loss to the Jets as evidence that the Patriots need more of a presence on the outside. Others look at the final eight games of the regular season and point out that the Patriots -- with the league's No. 1 scoring offense -- totaled more than 30 points in each game.
