Moss to the Vikings!!!

Postby thedude » Tue Oct 05, 2010 7:28 pm

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Vikings and the Patriots are working on a trade that would send receiver Randy Moss back to Minnesota, the place where his career began.

Glazer reports that the deal, which is close, hinges on the Vikings working out terms of a new contract with Moss, who is signed through 2010.

Ironically, the Vikings were widely believed to have a deal in place with receiver Vincent Jackson, but that they couldn't work out the terms of a trade.

Stay tuned.

Bill Simmons of ESPN is reporting, sort of, the existence of rumors regarding a trade that would send receiver Randy Moss from the Patriots back to the Vikings.

Wow.

Making the situation even more intriguing is the fact that Simmons inadvertently put the information on his Twitter page at a time that he was intending to send out the information as a direct message only.

Let the chase begin.

I'm trying to figure out the fantasy implications here. Who becomes the other starting receiver in NE? Is it Edelman, who actually plays behind Moss or do they slide Tate over to take his spot? Looking to jump the gun and grab one of these guys in Fantasy.

Rumor has it in Boston that the Patriots would get a third round pick in return.

It's a big sell high move, but I can't fathom how the Patriots will get into the playoffs without him. Welker, tight ends, and a great quarterback can only do so much.

they've won with much less on offense... then again they had some pretty great defenses back in the day. I cant see them being a serious super bowl contender unless Tate plays out of his mind

So is the move Edleman or Tate here? Are either worth dropping Louis Murphy? Demaryius Thomas? Mike WIlliams (TB)? Dez Bryant? These are the questions that need answering.
