Possible Moss-To-Vikings Trade Sends NFL Into Tuesday Night Frenzy
A normal boring Tuesday night filled with repetitive stories of game recaps and injury updates suddenly got more exciting. The Patriots have been having issues with the all pro receiver WR Randy Moss and both sides have mentioned this might be his last year in New England. Well with the receiver market fairly bare the Pats must have seen a window of opportunity to get some compensation for Moss by trading him away to a desperate team. That team happens to be the Brett Farve led Minnesota Vikings which is coincidentally where Moss started his NFL career.
The news of the trade talks came from Bill Simmons of ESPN when he accidentally tweeted the info on what he meant to be a private message. Now the news is out and the Pats have been quick to deny any deal being done. However, New England did own up to the possibility of a trade which is more info than the Patriots ever let out.
Once a story like this is started it is hard to turn back. All indications are Moss will be traded back to the Vikings in what is a desperate attempt to get Farve a man to throw to so that they can possibly make one last Super Bowl run with their aging QB. This possible trade is a great deal for both parties so it is hard to see the deal not getting done. Wow. With the NFL in labor talks and facing a possible lockout in 2011, the league is really getting interesting this year and the popularity of the game is continuing to sky-rocket because of it. Stay Tuned.
