Wednesday morning, a deal was finalized, as the New England Patriots agreed to send Randall Gene Moss—a future Hall of Famer and former Viking great—and a 2012 seventh-round draft pick to Minnesota in return for a third-round draft pick in 2011 draft. I think it was obvious that the Patriots had already told the man he wasn’t getting an extension and it was obvious that Moss wasn’t in their plans as they were trying to get younger and further under the cap.
Moss spent his first seven seasons in Minnesota, and is the second on the franchises list in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns behind Cris Carter. Now, he returns six years later, with a smile on his face and his eyes on a championship.
For as happy as the Vikings should be (as Randy Moss fills a much needed hole) the rest of the league should be equally as worried.
Randy Moss is an elite talent and he is exactly what the Vikings needed to turn their season around. Brett Lorenzo Favre didn't have a talented big target to throw to when things went awry, and now with Moss, this offense looks as dangerous as any team in the league. If you don't believe me, take a look at what his peers had to say.
