OK, so it's his agent talking but will it happen? Trying not to jump the gun but sounding more legit.

KFAN radio in Minneapolis just had the author of the article and he is adament that this is a done deal. But of course he's writing the story. Nobody in the Vikings front office will confirm says the radio station.

Sounds like a done deal, this sucks for us Viking Fans. But overall I think it helps us in the long run.

7th overall pick, latter round pick and a LB Harris.

I don't like the trade for either team. Oakland has problems in their LB corps and along their defensive line (read: rushing the passer) and a gaping hole at RB. They should have kept the pick and drafted Ronnie Brown or Derrick Johnson, plus they just signed Porter. Moss means more to Minny than anyone, and they aren't going to be able to offset the loss of him with the 7th pick and Napoleon Harris.

If there is a winner in this deal, its Oakland, but I don't think this was a particularly good trade for either side.

If its true then Oakland's O has the potential to be very dangerous next season. Collins can throw the deep ball, very good WRs Moss Porter and Curry... If they draft a RB like most mock drafts have them doing then they could actually have one of the better Os in the league

Listening to it now. Sure seems like it's done.
Wow! I really thought nothing would get done with the new ownership not approved yet. I doubt this deal could have got done without Fowler's approval.
Looks like Fowler will get along well with Tice. "Randy Moss will not be traded."

wow, never saw this coming so soon. But this said, there are some decent players in the draft that could help the Vikings.

I am praying it is true - I just drafted Burleson in my dynasty draft. He was awesome without Moss. Wooohooooo!

Wow! I am shocked right now! Oakland's offense is gonna look pretty with Porter and Moss to throw too.

Just too bad that Moss's numers will decrease b/c of the QB situation over here.

BTW, local radio is usually right and gets the word out before the organization actually contacts the media directly

They won't have that pick any more.
