Randy Moss Returns to Minnesota

Brett Favre finally has someone to throw the ball to and it couldn’t come sooner as he has been KILLING my Fantasy Football teams this season.

The New England Patriots have sent Moss back to the team that made him famous, the Minnesota Vikings, in exchange for a 3rd round draft pick. This comes just two days after a 41-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night where Moss and zero catches and only one pass thrown his direction by quarterback Tom Brady.

Moss was a first-round draft pick of the Vikings back in 1998 after his college days at Marshall. He spent his first seven seasons with Minnesota, where he became one of the biggest playmakers in the NFL. He was later traded to Oakland in 2005, where he had two sub par years before being reborn New England.

I’m not sure if the Patriots got full value for Moss with this trade, but I guess you take what you can get, right? It’ll be interesting to see how Favre and Moss play together and if it will bring either back to their stats of days gone by!

Thoughts on the trade?

From the Associated Press:

The New England Patriots traded the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver to the Vikings on Wednesday, giving Moss the exit he expected all along and sending him back to the place where he became a superstar, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the transaction had not been officially announced.

“When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted,” Moss said in September. “I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling—feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down.”

Moss later backtracked from those statements, telling The Associated Press that he hoped to finish his career with the Patriots.

“I don’t even know what my fate is, and for me to be 33 years old, it’s like I’m held at bay, and that’s definitely an uncomfortable thing,” he said. “If this is my last year here, I want to leave as good as I came in here in ’07. I know that’s really hard to duplicate, but I don’t want the fans, the organization, coaches or my teammates to have a sour taste in their mouths about Randy Moss.”

  1. The Vikings decided before the season that it was Super Bowl or bust, and they have gone to great lengths to trade for a top 5 receiver. They agreed to a deal with Vincent Jackson, but couldnt get the Chargers to lower their ridiculous trade requirements. If Moss and Favre cant get on the same page, this could turn back into one of the elite teams in the NFL.


  2. Randy Moss returning to the Vikings for a 3rd-round choice? What team do you’re thinking that can be the winner of this deal?
