Moss a Raider!!!!!

I would get all teary eyed but I'm not too disappointed in Randy leaving but I am disappointed in what they got for him. They got a good young MLB in Harris but to only get the 7th overall pick and a late round pick for probably the best wideout in the game. You would think you could have greased Al Davis for more than that.

I'm guessing the Vikes will be going after either Mike Williams or Derrick Johnson with the #7 pick. Either would be nice but Derrick would be the best bet, IMO. You can always get a Burress to replace Randy.

All i can say is this is 1 of the $hittyest deals we could have gotten for moss. Harris is an underachevier who hasnt done anything in his 3 years. So what it comes down to is we traded moss for a 7th overall pick. If harris plays that means either ej is goin to the bench or were movin to a 3-4. All i know now is we better get a wr with some credentals in freeagency. I love nate but i dont think hes a great number 1 wr. Robenson can go up and get the jump ball but i like him as are 3rd. So we are in need of a number 1 wr. Letz find a way to move up and get Antrell Rolle




RIP MOSS :~(

You know I'm kind of shocked that Minnesota gave up Randy for Napoleon Harris and a couple of draft picks. They obviously needed a linebacker, but I think they could have done better than this.

With that said, I think the deal is indeed beneficial to the Vikes. They get a good LB in Harris, and will probably be drafting Antrel Rolle with the seventh pick, a true shutdown corner. Then they still have the 17th pick or somewhere around there to draft Anntaj Hawthorne. I think that their D will be MUCH improved next year and probably one of the leagues best.

I like the trade the more I look into it. There are a nice crop of WR out there to replace Moss. Harris (an 87 on Madden!) should provide a VERY nice boost at LB. If we are able to draft Antrel Rolle or Derrick Johnson, I think this trade would be a good one in my eyes.

I agree that this trade works for the Vikes, but they could have gotten a lot more in my opinion. Woodson or Buchanon would have both been more beneficial than Harris.

I disagree. Harris is younger and, when healthy, is as (if not more) athletic. Add in that the Vikings already have Brian Williams at right corner and NO back MLB, I like this trade just the way it is.

I have to agree with B4P. Harris is younger, Woodson is going to cost huge, Buchanon is no better than williams. So if the vikes play it wirte they bring in Rolle/Jones/rogers. Develope them fill the mlb slot and our D steps up a notch. We will be better than we were last year for sure.
