Porter signing sinks moss deal?

This is just a rumor and I don't know if it's true but it's pretty interesting none the less.

PORTER SIGNING SINKS MOSS DEAL



With Raiders receiver Jerry Porter signing a new contract to stay with the team that drafted him out of West Virginia in 2000, the Raiders won't be swinging a trade with the Vikings for receiver Randy Moss.



And that's the deal that was in place a day ago, but on which we couldn't elaborate at the time, at the request of the source.



Per the source, the Raiders were poised to send a first-round pick, a seventh-round pick, and linebacker Napoleon Harris to the Vikings in exchange for Moss.



We're not saying that Moss won't be traded. On Monday night, the NFL Network's Adam Schefter apparently reported that two undisclosed teams were talking to the Vikings. But the only one we knew of was the Raiders, and they're now officially out of the Moss market.



Other possible suitors for Moss' services include the Ravens, with rumors of a possible trade including linebacker Terrell Suggs. However, Suggs' agent, Gary Wichard, told us on Tuesday afternoon that he's heard "not a word" about any such deal going down.



Moss reportedly has said the two teams he'd like to be traded to are the Falcons and the Ravens. The Falcons likely aren't interested; the Ravens might be.



And it's impossible to rule out the Cardinals, who are coached by Dennis Green. Green drafted Moss in 1998, after he plummeted through the first twenty picks of round one. The only problem is that adding Moss would give the Cardinals a glut of receiver -- and that the Vikes might not be inclined to hand Moss over to Green under any circumstances.

there is no way that the ravens would trade away one of the most promising young defensive players in the NFL for randy moss... ever.

if we franchised hartwell and traded him, or maybe even adailus thomas... but never suggs.

Probably not Suggs but I bet the Ravens do make a trade for Moss. They've been a little too quiet on the whole situation (I know, rules). I bet a deal will come pretty soon.

i hope not. I want Moss in silver and black.

Truthfully the raiders do not have any serious talent with their current WRs. They have potential. But i do not see any of them becoming serious recievers.

Curry is a decent choice. But is as thin as paper.

That would have been a fantastic deal for Minnesota. To bad. ;-)

i think giving suggs for moss is legit, but the ravens would need to get someone to throw the ball to him. Jeff Garcia perhaps? Or the fantastic jonathon Quin???

i don't think moss moves at all. The new owner fowler wants to keep him, and i tend to agree with that kind of thinking.
