When asked for a comment, he kept on bringing the conversation back to the game or his team on Monday. “I am embarrassed that we lost this football game,” he kept saying. “Let’s talk about Randy Moss’ touchdown catch.

New England Patriots Trade Randy Moss, Returns To Minnesota Vikings

The trade talks are now finally over. It is confirmed that wide receiver Randy Moss has been dealt by the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday. This recent trade is a homecoming of sort since Moss was initially picked by the Vikings in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft. Terms of the trade include exchanges of future draft picks in 2011 and 2012.

The addition of future Hall of Famer Moss to the Vikings offensive lineup gives the struggling team some hope for the Super Bowl. Quarterback Brett Favre has expressed excitement over the trade as he now has a passing option in what has been a stagnant Vikings offense. Pro Bowl receiver Sidney Rice underwent hip surgery in August while Percy Harvin has not been playing up to par.

Moss has been a competitive athlete and entertainer at the same time, bringing in sellout crowds. His behavior may be a cause for concern but there is no denying that he can still contribute to winning games at the age of 33.

The next few weeks are pivotal to the Vikings. They face the New York Jets on Monday night.

Their next two games are just as crucial as they meet rivals Green Bay Packers and New England next.
