The New England Patriots finalized a deal that will send star wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings, the team which he started his NFL career, ESPN, the NFL Network and Boston Herald reported.
The Patriots will receive a third round pick in return, which isn’t bad when you consider that they traded a fourth round pick to get Moss from the Raiders in 2007.
What’s even better about all of this? We get to talk about Brett Favre more!
Moss, who caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota, will be teamed up with the Wrangler-shelling gunslinger in what may be Favre’s final shot at a Super Bowl.
Moss leaves Tom Brady and his hair behind.
And the Patriots really have no one to fill his void, at least at the moment. However, early reports are that Pats WR Brandon Tate could turn into a good fantasy option with the absence of Moss.
What’s even better? The Vikings are coming to New England to play the Patriots later in the season.
The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET. Via USA Today
Hopefully crazy Randy Moss will be back. I don’t like the Randy Moss that’s all like, not crazy.
