NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Randy Moss used to be a star. Now, he’s just an afterthought with the San Francisco 49ers.

It’s a role he’s still struggling to accept.

Moss spent much of his career as one of the NFL’s top receivers. During Super Bowl media day on Tuesday, he called himself “the greatest receiver ever to do it.” That’s a claim sure to be debated in NFL circles.

One thing is certain: the 35-year-old Moss is no longer an elite receiver. This season with the 49ers, he caught just 28 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns.

While Moss says he “doesn’t understand” being a blocker and a decoy, he’s willing to accept his new status if that’s what it takes to win his first Super Bowl.
