Default hot rumor: Randy Moss to the Vikes????

Randy Moss trade rumors true after all


What began as a seemingly erroneous rumor stemming from an unintended Bill Simmons tweet has suddenly turned into potentially the biggest story of the 2010 NFL season.

Simmons tweeted that there are rumors swirling that Randy Moss is going to be traded to the Vikings. He meant to send it as a direct message (DM).

About 30 minutes later, Fox Sport's Jay Glazer tweeted, “hey bill simmons @sportsguy33, damn you! Hahaha. I've been sitting on it allllll day. Was hoping to come outta left field and then u let slip. Classic! Good job”

Glazer also tweeted, “Yes, vikes and pats have been working on trade that sends randy moss to vikes and r very clode but can't be done until vikes and moss work out new contract, (which) they r working on.”

Pro Football Talk is reporting that Moss and the Vikings have not yet started negotiating a deal.

Moss is in the final year of his contract and does not expect to return to New England in 2011. Monday night, he was targeted only once and was held without a catch in the Patriots’ win over the Dolphins.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports that Moss’ agent, Joel Segal, called Bill Belichick and requested a trade after Week 1.

I have this bad feeling that the Patriots will end up with three No.1 draft picks somehow.


Lord Favre can watch Moss dog it when they lose.

I'd take Moss and Burress as a WR tandem.


Make it so.

yea verily

then they'll turn those three first round picks into 5 second round round picks and 6 third round picks.

Wow...certainly didn't expect that. Will be interesting to see who they get in return.

So the Vikings burn their top draft picks to add 13 year vet Moss (who will quit playing once he gets his last contract) to old man Favre and then are terrible in about 2 years?

Sounds like a great idea if your master plan as the Vikings ownership is to kill fan enthusiasm, assure you do not get a new stadium, and then move to LA because Minny-St. Paul will not support the Vikings

Well if they do it soon, possibly could bring life to the Vikings offense

Moss is Officially traded to the Vikings for a 3rd round pick...... Thats it, just a 3rd round pick.

Vikings play the Patriots October 31st So hopefully he gets like 5 touchdowns and make Tom Brady cry.

Vikings did not even need to sign him up for a long term contract

Belichick must have really wanted him out of there
