Vikings Throw Moss Overboard

Less than a month into his second stint as a Minnesota Viking, the team has wavied wide receiver Randy Moss.

The Vikings decision comes less than 24 hours after the Vikings fell to the New England Patriots 28-18 at Gillette Stadium. Moss, of course, began the season as a Patriot but expressed his discontent with the club following their opening week win against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Patriots traded Moss to the Vikings on October 6th for a third round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Well, now that Patriots are 6-1 and have the best record in the NFL while the Vikings are 2-5, Moss is singing a very different tune. Moss lavished praise on the Pats while dissing the Vikings including head coach Brad Childress. It's amazing how things can change from Week One to Week Eight.

NFL teams have until 4 p.m. tomorrow afternoon to put in a waiver claim for Moss. Otherwise he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The winless Buffalo Bills have first dibs on Moss. Wouldn't it be grand if during one season Moss went from the best team in the NFL to the worst? Randy Moss didn't know what he had until it was gone.
