Randy Moss plans to play for at least one more season, ProFootballTalk.com reported Monday.
The website cited a source with knowledge of the wide receiver's thinking in its report.
Moss, who ended his one-year retirement to play for the 49ers this season, played in all 16 games for San Francisco in 2012.
He will turn 36 on Feb. 13.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said earlier this month that he hoped Moss would be back with the 49ers in 2013.
"For official publication, I, for one, definitely want Randy to come back. Hope he feels the same way," Harbaugh told USA Today Sports earlier this month.
Moss had 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season for the NFC champion 49ers. He has five receptions for 71 yards in San Francisco's two playoff victories.
Moss enjoyed his best season with the Patriots in 2007, when he caught 98 passes for 1,493 yards and a single-season record 23 touchdowns in helping New England to a 16-0 regular-season record.
He has 982 catches for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns in his 14-season career.
