Randy Moss says he wanted to play elsewhere.

Raiders wide receiver Randy Moss said in a radio interview Thursday that when he left the Vikings he wanted to be traded to Atlanta or Baltimore instead of Oakland.

Moss said Falcons owner Arthur Blank told him that Atlanta did not want him to come, according to the interview that aired Thursday morning on "Mayhem in the A.M." on 790 The Zone in Atlanta.

"I want to tell every Atlanta Falcon and football fan that's listening to this what happened. When I was getting traded from Minnesota I wanted to come and play for either the Atlanta Falcons or the Baltimore Ravens," Moss said.

"I wanted to play with Atlanta just for the fact of Michael Vick's elusiveness, and I wanted to play with a guy such as Ray Lewis because he's on defense and I'm on offense."

"So I did have dreams and high hopes of being traded to the Atlanta Falcons but the president and owner of the Atlanta Falcons (Arthur Blank) told me specifically that he does not want me in Atlanta, there's nothing that I can do to Atlanta and he wished me the best of luck. He did not think that Randy Moss would be a good fit in Atlanta."

Moss then wrapped up his comments on the situation in Atlanta: "Basically it was the president and owner of the team saying there is no cold chance in hell I'll be playing for the Atlanta Falcons. So I took the Atlanta Falcons off my list and tried to go elsewhere."

That's pretty interesting. I wonder what compelled him to come out and say this, knowing that Oakland has enough problems on the field already. They definatley dont need clubhouse issues in addition.

Maybe Randy wants to win, or maybe he just misses being top dog in the WR world. Either way, this is not good for Oakland.

Think of how fast he would have blown up with either Vick or Boller throwing him passes. I am glad Arthur told him no.

Good thing he moved on to quality QBs like Collins, Tuiasosopo and Brooks.

Don't forget Walter B-) ;-D

I'm not sure this is a big deal....yet....If he continues to drop this into future interviews, then yea I could see a problem arising, but right now I think he was just stating the facts about where he wanted to go before he was traded....

Moss was just being a man. Learn from him how to act like a man and speak what is on your mind. Public relation skills are for the weak.

apparently it was news enough for fox sports. :-?

i don't really think this has any impact, whatsoever. i just wanted to see what people thought about him wanting to play with some of the least accurate qbs in the league. probably part of his ego, thinking once he got hooked up with those guys that he'd turn them into stud qbs. etc.
