Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss believes the upcoming season will probably be his last in New England, according to comments published by the Boston Globe .
Moss spoke on the issue Sunday while appearing at a charity event hosted by Heath Evans, himself a former Patriot.
"I understand the beast, the nature of it," Moss said, as quoted on the Globe's website.
"I don't think they're going to re-sign me back. So, after this season if there is not a lockout I'll be looking for a new team."

Wide receiver Antonio Bryant received $9.88 million in 2009 after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed the franchise tag on him.
He had a career year in 2008, which resulted in 83 passes for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.
Tampa Bay won't be placing the franchise tag on Bryant again this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, because the price is way too high for a soon-to-be 29-year-old wideout who spent the better portion of the 2009 season battling a knee injury.
The Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots could be interested in Bryant.

Teams have between now and Feb. 25 to apply their franchise and transition tags.
The only reason to delay is if they feel there’s an outside chance of striking a long-term deal.
