Default Randy Moss to Vikings for 3rd round pick

Filed to ESPN: When the Randy Moss-to-Minnesota trade is completed later, Patriots will receive a third-round pick in return from Vikings.

Like the deal from the Vikings POV to be honest, Moss still has a few years left in him and the change of scenery will do him good.

The Vikings are putting all their eggs in one basket, and scheming to win NOW.

They're 1-2, but you gotta figure Childress thinks this is their year. They're loaded with talent, so we'll see. Need to limit turnovers though.

No , they gave the Raiders a sixth. great ROI especially considering what he has produced since being there. Moss is a freak, he will be catching balls until he's 40, most likely the only one with a chance to break Jerry Rice's record.

I thought it was going to be a lot higher. At least a 2nd, especially because the Vikings are so desperate. I guess we'll just have to get used to a world where Lawrence Maroney is worth a 4th and Randy Moss is worth a 3rd.

I have Moss on my fantasy team. cool thing about this for FF owners, he doesn't have a bye week this season. Vikes had theirs last week, and he is traded this week during the pat's bye week. Back to back MNF games, but since he didn't have a catch last game, he basically did have a bye week. Hope he tears it up. Also, I see in 5 weeks they visit the Pats.

Wow, is Bellicheat thinking he can't win it this year and is banking on future draft picks? The Patriots have now 2-1st, 2-2nd, 2-3rd and 2-4th. How does next years draft look?

I was thinking about that earlier when compared to how haphazard McDaniels/Xanders have been with a few of the Broncos picks.

I think it's just a function of Belichick having the job security to just stockpile picks and build for the future. He's in about year 5 or 6 of the "coach for life" 10 year grace period awarded coaches that build dynasties. Kind of similar to Shanahan.

But when you're a young coach and GM, I guess you do whatever it is you think can make you win now. Curse you Alphonso Smith and Richard Quinn.

Yeah, I forgot about that. Good point. I am far from a McDaniels hater, though.

Sorry, it just pisses me off, I have heard this so many times in the last 12 hours and I am tired of people being critical of the move with the wrong facts.

I'll not deny he has looked like **** and would rather we'd have given up a 4th and a conditional for Lynch but plan on giving Maroney more than 2 games before casting him out.

Looks like someone's REALLY betting on there not being a lockout next year. Would suck to not be able to sign any of those draft picks if there's no football.

Not to mention that Maroney is young and cheap whereas Moss is old and expensive. I assume the Vikes will be giving Moss an extension as part of the deal.
