Reports are flying everywhere that the Pats are looking to Move Randy Moss in exchange for a possible 3rd round pick to the Vikings.
Moss had 0 catches last night and really hasn’t been a yardage machine this year although he’s been good in the TD department. But the fact is Moss is disgruntled. Jay Glazer reported Moss asked Belicheck for a trade after week 1.
I think this deal goes down maybe not tonight but sometime this week. It’s clear Moss wants out and the Pats have never been shy about letting go of their big names in the past (Richard Seymour, Lawyer Milloy).
Obviously Favre has always wanted Moss dating back to his days as a Packer and the Vikings clearly need help in the Wide Receiver department. Right now it looks the deal is really going to come down to what kind of contract the Vikings give Moss since Randy is in his last year of his current contract.
Make sure to get Brandon Tate in your waiver pickups this week and then Julian Edelman who will now see a bigger role. I think Tate could prove to be a nice addition to your squad because he is extremely talented and explosive as we saw last night with his kickoff return and dating back to his days at North Carolina playing alongside Hakeem Nicks. Also put a bid in for Rob Gronkowski as he is sure to see more playing time.
From a Vikings standpoint it’s probably a little too late to acquire Brett Favre but if you can go do it now!
I look for this deal to go down by Thursday the latest.
UPDATE: The Boston Herald is now reporting that “things are moving quickly” in the Randy Moss trade to Vikings trade and it appears Moss will be traded sometime Wednesday according to a very trustworthy, yet unknown league source. We will continue to update you throughout the day on the wheelings and dealings on the Randy Moss front as well as the rest of the NFL player news.
