Vikings Release Randy Moss
The Minnesota Vikings made a huge announcement, with the release of WR Randy Moss. Moss, who was brought to the team that drafted him in 1998 after an October trade from the New England Patriots for a third-round draft pick, was released on Monday from the team, first reported by NFL Network Insider Michael Lombardi.
Moss, who played for Minnesota from 1998-2004, returned this season, and had 13 catches for 174 yards in four games for the Vikings. After the 28-18 loss at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Moss, who was fined $25,000 from the media, went on a rant in which he stated he was not going to be granting interviews for the rest of the season, and also criticizing the Vikings and saluting his former team.
Vikings linebacker Ben Leber told the media that head coach Brad Childress addressed the team in a meeting Monday afternoon about Moss' release. Moss stayed back in his Boston-area home after the game to spend time with his family.
According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, the teams are most likely interested in signing Moss are: Cowboys, Redskins, Rams, Bears, Dolphins, Raiders, Chiefs, Jets, Patriots. Imagine if he ends up back in New England. Bill Belichick would pull off the ultimate steal.
