It was back to the football field for Randy Moss, who signed a one-year deal with the 49ers after a year off due to retirement.
So what did Moss have to say about his first on-field workout with the team?
It was eye-opening, Moss said, according to PFT. Today was the first day and we were moving so fast. Today felt like wed been out here for a week or two.
So could Moss keep up? His teammate, tackle Joe Staley, was impressed by what Moss showed out on the field.
He looked good. He looked really, really good, Staley said. Obviously super fast. My first impressions of him are very positive. I think hes going to be a great addition to the team. Im excited to work with him. I think hes got a ton of talent.
If Moss can win a roster spot with the 49ers and keep it for the entire season, he'll be back in New England on December 16 for a Week 15 Sunday Night Football matchup with the Patriots.
Of course we all remember the last game Moss played in Gillette, as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. He made one catch for eight yards -- and never played another game for the Vikings again, being released shortly after.
Tom E. Curran explains why he thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers' biggest weakness is a New England Patriots strength and that will impact the game on Sunday.
FOXBORO -- Antonio Brown's live stream of coach Mike Tomlin's postgame speech on Sunday had a ripple effect that traveled all the way to New England: Just in case Patriots players weren't familiar with the league's social-media policy, they were reminded of it this week.
"We were reminded of that," receiver Chris Hogan said. "I’m not sure what the timing is, but obviously, I don’t think we’ll see guys doing that in the locker room."
Players are prohibited from using social media in the locker room until media outlets have been given an opportunity to talk to players following games. Brown's Facebook Live video, which garnered national attention almost as soon as it went online, was shot well before the visitor's locker room at Arrowhead Stadium opened following Pittsburgh's win over Kansas City.
"We have a team policy on that," special teams captain Matthew Slater said. "Strictly enforced. We go from there."
Of course part of the reason the video became as widely disseminated as it did was because it caught Tomlin calling the Patriots "a--holes."
"I have a lot of respect for Coach Tomlin," Slater said when asked about Tomlin's speech. "I appreciate the way he prepares his team. I’ve had a good working relationship with him over the years, and it will continue to be that way."
Both Slater and Hogan insisted that their focus will be trained solely on preparing for what Tomlin and his players will do when they arrive to Gillette Stadium Sunday night -- not what they say leading up to kickoff.
"You come in here, you're automatically bought into what we preach here, what coach [Bill] Belichick preaches," Hogan said. "It's football. We're 100 percent football here. It's not about anything outside. Between the media or whatever it is outside of football, whatever we're doing. When we come here, it's 100 percent football. That's all we're focused on is the opponent we're playing that week."
