Randy Moss Waived By Minnesota Vikings: No, The Falcons Won't Sign Him

New, 2 comments

In the second most ridiculous draft-related Minnesota Vikings move of the past decade, the team has released WR Randy Moss three weeks after trading a third-round pick to bring the star home from the New England Patriots. Again, it's not like the Vikings were going to end up using that draft pick anyway.

No, the Atlanta Falcons will not consider picking up Randy Moss. No, they will not. Yes, it would be nice to be able to spread the ball around a little bit, and a committed Moss lining up beside Tony Gonzalez and Roddy White would give Atlanta the league's best receiving corps by a mile. But that's the thing -- Moss plays when he wants to play, as he himself admitted years ago. That ain't Arthur Blank ball.

Our only concern here: what happens if an actual NFC contender picks him up? Sequestering him on the Vikings, a team the Falcons won't play in the regular season or playoffs because they're not going, was great. What happens if, say, the Panthers grab him? No worries about the Bucs picking him up, of course, as they're already the NFL's best team of the past 25 years.

Who are we kidding? Moss costs a lot of money, is very famous and famously inconsistent, and was unstoppable in the mid-00s. Welcome home, Randy.
