If you could get him to play to the level he is capable of, he would be a great signing. He is the deep threat they need lined up wide. It opens up the entire field.

CK, i've always enjoyed your insight on various Dolphin issues, but I think you jumped the gun on this and should reconsider. While I do think Moss is still a great weapon, he is too much of a headache at this point. He got himself traded from the Pats and only a couple of weeks with Vikes acts like a clown after Vike's loss yesterday. I say please stay away from Moss and stick with Hartline.

I'm on board with CK. This is an uncapped year, and here is the thing with signing him.

You get a guy who gets to play in the AFC East against the Patriots. He will like that. He also comes here with no expectations, as far as a draft pick, no history to speak of (other than torching us from time to time). We can sign him to a one year deal for $7M or something, or two year with half guaranteed. I know you guys say that might be a lot, but you need to step up because someone will want him. He also won't be able to be a cancer here, because Tony won't put up with it. He is mostly used to that from his New England days.

I was watching that too.. I don't think he gave up on it. By the time he was done recovering from the PI, the ball was 5 yards ahead of him no matter how much he ran. If you look closely you can see he tried to react to it at the last second but then saw it was way over his head.

WOW.. I would to have him.. even it's only for the remainder of the season. They probably cut him because he doesn't buy into the Brett Favre BS circus like all the young receivers do over there.

You go from Brady to an ancient Favre.. It's not even close. A serious downgrade. Moss probably spoke his mind and Childress turned into a child.

The Vikings are turning into a complete joke.

Report: Vikings waive Randy Moss

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 1, 2010 2:58 PM ET
Randy Moss' bizarre press conference (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/10/31/randy-moss-misses-new-england-criticizes-childress/) Sunday night wound up being his farewell to Minnesota.

NFL Network's Michael Lombardi reports that the Vikings waived Moss (http://twitter.com/michaelombardi/statuses/29396962259) on Monday. At his Monday press conference, Vikings coach Brad Childress mentioned that he allowed Moss to stay back in Boston for a few days before re-joining the team. Looks like he can stay there.

We have no reason to believe the story is not true, but PFT can report via a league source that Moss is not yet aware that he's been released.

Moss would now be subject to leave waiver rules and could be claimed by any team. The Bills would have the first crack at him because they have the worst record.

Lombardi writes that Childress inform the Vikings in a team meeting (http://twitter.com/michaelombardi/statuses/29397495803) that Moss was out.

Perhaps there was more to the story of Moss not returning with the team on Sunday night. Maybe Moss' press conference frustrated Childress more than he let on and they say the direction his lack of cooperation with the team was going.

Either way, a Super Bowl hopeful just decided for the second time in a month that Moss was no longer worth all the trouble of keeping.

At least the Patriots got a third-round pick out of it.

He is a cancer, a crybaby, a POS, and cant be trusted. His skills arent near what they used to be in the first place. Sure, we could use a verticle threat, but not this one.

While I do think Childress is a terrible coach, Moss deserved to be waived/cut. Go back and read his comments from yesterday from the game. He really came across as an asinine fool. As tempting as this seems, I look at this as fool's gold.

Yeah. They didn't even allow for Sidney Rice to hit the field at the same time as Randy. I think they had too much immediate expectation of him coming in immediately and winning games by himself right away. Childress is a joke, and is more done than even Wade Phillips.

Billk78
11-01-2010, 03:16 PM
He got waived so does that mean he has to clear for us to get him? or no

He has to go through the waivers process which means that any team can claim him in order of worst record to best, so the Bill's have first shot and the Pats have last. I think we should put in a waiver claim just to block the Jets and Pats from being able to get him. I'm guessing he will end up with a team like the Raiders though.

FinAtic8480

Is there any question that Childress doesn't know how to build a team for the future? Not only did he bring in a half dead Favre, he traded away a 3rd round pick just so he could lose to the Jets, Pack, and Pats.

If we pick him up, I think this would be the first time in history that a player has played against one team 3 times during the regular season

According to rotoworld he is subject to the waivers process. But Im not 100 percent sure either:

NFL Network's Mike Lombardi reports that the Vikings have waived Randy Moss.

If the report is correct, the Vikings have given up on Moss just four games after acquiring him for a third-round pick on October 5. After calling out the coaching staff in his Sunday night press conference, Moss refused to travel with his teammates back to Minnesota, instead staying in Boston with his family. He'll now be subject to the waivers process, with any team claiming him on the hook for his $6.4 million salary prorated over the rest of the season. The winless Bills have first dibs. Moss indicated Sunday that he'd like to return to New England, but the Patriots are last in the waiver order. We'll know by 4PM ET if he's been claimed.

Putting a claim on Moss is the biggest no brainer in the history of sports. There is no downside. We are not going to win the Super Bowl or the division right now. We need a speed threat (should have kept Ginn) opposite Marshall. Must keep the Jets or Pats from getting him. If he is a disaster in the locker room let him go. Great for Henne's development and confidence, the guy can still play (see stats from last year). Take a chance, don't want to say "what if" at the end of the year. Absolute no brainer, let's do it

Chubby
11-01-2010, 03:28 PM
Maybe this uncapped year rules are different, is what I am guessing why he has to clear waivers.

His attitude steers teams away, I think he is still atheletic and can be a threat...But I really dont want a guy like that in the locker room. We are better off with what we have now....We were worried about Marshall being the diva receiver and he has not been that so far....If Moss was here we could have two fueling each others fire...No thanks...pass.

Nope I was wrong..

Moss now has 24 hours for a team to claim him off waivers. His salary for the remainder of this season will be paid entirely by the Minnesota Vikings, but he can make additional money if he agrees to a new contract with a new team.


No one is going to clm him...6.4 million ....

Ask that question to the Patriots who got rid of him and they have more leaders than we do.

What is he going to do? Didnt you see the press conference after the game? Dude more or less bashed the entire Vikings organization and went on to talk about how great the team that just beat them is.

You really want part of that action?

What happens when we lose a game after he half ***** it out there? Is he going to tell us how bad our team is?

What happens when he causes your precious Chad Henne picks by not aggresively pursuing the ball? Then he comes on tv and tries to blame it on Henne? What will you do then?

No. I want no part of this dude on my team. Ive seen his act way too many times. He had a couple of good seasons when he first came into the league and a couple of good seasons in NE. The rest of his career has been sloppy, unproductive, underacheiving, combined with talking a bunch of **** about his teammates and coaches to the media. Im good on Randy Moss. Thats real talk.

Right now in this stage of his career, he is to Brandon Marshall what Chris Carter was to him. He can't get seperation but would benefit from single coverage all day.

I personally hate the guy. He used to go to my barber when my barber was still down here in Florida and he came off as a racist prick. Simple words were exchanged and my barber had to get him to shut up

Hoops even if he has lost a step he can still create separation against the top CBs in the league. If Moss is on one side with Marshall on the other, imagine the quandry opposing defenses would have.

Most of us, myself included said no to Marshall but he has proven to be a great acquisition thus far. Signing Moss requires no compensation and if he plays with his attitude he cn be cut. This is a low risk high reward that I am sure Ireland is at least considering.

Moss to Miami? I personally would pass (no pun intended). His release IMO has alot to do w/ Childress being an idiot.

As for Woodhead, I agree the phins should have picked him up. Aikman put it in perspective yesterday why the pats did; replacement for Kevin Faulk.

Take it for what it is, but rotoworld lists us as one of the possible landing spots.

Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe predicts that Randy Moss will not end up with the Patriots after being waived on Monday.

According to Manza Young, the Patriots-Moss "divorce wasn't as amicable as seems now." The 6-1 Patriots also rank 32nd in the waiver order, and another team seems likely to claim Moss before he gets there. We'd add to the possible landing spots 4-3 Miami, 4-4 St. Louis, 4-3 Chicago, and 4-4 Jacksonville.

If he's not happy at home in Minnesota, where pretty much everyone loved him, where else would this guy be happy? I'm skeptical. Probably locker room poison, but the deep threat would be great.

Just read on PFT that he goes on waivers because its after the trade deadline, which makes sense. Otherwise you could have handshake deals if a certain player wanted to go to a certain team after the deadline.


Moss would now be subject to leave waiver rules and could be claimed by any team. (To clarify, even veterans are subject to the waiver process after the trading deadline. Think Chris Chambers last year.)

What does Moss want to be happy? Probably all of the following:

1. $$
2. winning team
3. being a major part of gameplan
4. good QB

Do we provide those things?

I don't know, this could be Cris Carter all over again. I mean he wasn't happy with Childress and how things were run there, he definitely won't give 100% with handcuffed Henne at QB and Henning calling the plays. NE and NYJ probably won't get Moss unless he clear waivers since they have two of the best records in the league.

I doubt Buffalo with Demayrius Thomas, Eddie Royal, and Brandon Lloyd would be looking at him. I think Buffalo is pretty happy with Lee Evan and the emergence of Steve Johnson. Carolina and SF will be definite contenders though.

You guys kill me.

You absolutely hate it when I tell you the truth about Henne and Sparano, yet you want to sign Randy Moss. I mean, seriously, how many games do you think it would take before Moss tells you the truth about those guys?

They are talking about this on the Francesa show right now. A couple of interesting things..........

1) First you have to consider all of the teams ahead of us in waiver priority. Look at those teams and figure which ones still think they are in the mix and may consider taking a chance on Moss. San Diego comes to mind, but I dont think their owner would go with a move like this. Rivers could be nasty with Moss though.

2) You have to figure the only teams that may do this would be a team that knows they have a QB and/or a coach that Moss would respect. You see the way he treats teams that dont have Tom Brady. Francesa makes a fair point there that its going to take a guy like that. Peyton Manning and the injuries they have come to mind. Only question there is would Polian ever do that. Plus, Manning seems to go with whoever is at WR and still produce. He may not want Moss either.

Also, Indy does have a black coach. That would be a factor because Moss is a racist. He would be more reluctant to throw a black coach under the bus that isnt the genius Belichick is.

Who else could be in the mix? The Bears? Packers?

Btw, did you guys notice both Moss and TO this weekend not even trying for balls on certain plays? TO cost his man an INT late in the game. He also didnt even make an effort to come back for that ball that Clemens ran in front of in the endzone. That wouldve been a good shot at PI if he comes back for that thing. Thats if he dosent catch it.

That Moss play where he just watched the ball land in front of him in the endzone after drawing that PI was ridiculous. That was a TD pass if he just makes the effort. Unreal.

I want no part of that dude.

KC is leading the NFC West and the Raiders are 4-4. Of course San Diego is a playoff contending team. 8 or 9 wins could take that division easily. Have you even been watching the league the last few years? San Diego has started slow a couple of times and come back to win that division.

I would only take Moss to keep him away from New England. He got himself kicked off the Vikings because of his love of the Patriots. Imagine what he would do to the Dolphins when they play the Patriots? I would claim him, play him early and see if he can help, but the second he causes trouble, bench him for the rest of the year and keep him out of the lockeroom.

It seemed like he struck up a good relationship with Vontae, so maybe that would help him integrate 3with the team, but I wouldn't bank on it. In any case, we NEED to keep him away from NE.

I dont see any team in the AFC West catching up with the Chiefs. They do the exact same thing that the Raiders do (run, play solid defense) but their offense is more dependable and have a much better special teams unit.

As for Moss, you have to consider that it will take him at least 3 weeks to learn the playbook (his first game for Minny all he was running was fly routes), and after he does, the main priority will still be Marshall. Bess is sure to get a lot of looks as well. I think its a highly combustible situation with him, he would be a 2nd or 3rd option (he has never been that in his career). A loss or two and he could start sounding off just like he did to get released in Minnesota.

According to rotoworld he is subject to the waivers process. But Im not 100 percent sure either:

NFL Network's Mike Lombardi reports that the Vikings have waived Randy Moss.

If the report is correct, the Vikings have given up on Moss just four games after acquiring him for a third-round pick on October 5. After calling out the coaching staff in his Sunday night press conference, Moss refused to travel with his teammates back to Minnesota, instead staying in Boston with his family. He'll now be subject to the waivers process, with any team claiming him on the hook for his $6.4 million salary prorated over the rest of the season. The winless Bills have first dibs. Moss indicated Sunday that he'd like to return to New England, but the Patriots are last in the waiver order. We'll know by 4PM ET if he's been claimed.

i believe that's 4pm Tuesday bro.

That's the point. We need to pick him up, if for no other reason than to prevent him from going to the Pats this year. He made clear in his post-game press conference that he loves the Pats, so if he has a choice, he will definitely go there, and probably play lights out because he's so happy to be back. We need to prevent that from happening as long as we are fighting for the division. It's way to early to give up on that.

Berry
11-01-2010, 04:16 PM
I dont think New England wants any part of him. You dont trade your best receiver, with a playoff team at that, if you do. What makes us different than New England and Minnesota? Sometimes, you have to realize a player cannot be changed. Can he play? Yeah, he can. Is he worth the headache? I dont think he is at all.

Not to mention, this is a moot point until he passes waivers. If you pick him up through waivers, you take on his contract. I dont think anyone wants to take the 6 mil or so he is owed. Teams will be weary...If you are a future hall of famer, a true number one receiver, and you are looking to play for your THIRD team in a season, than chances are its the player and not the teams

If I missed this earlier in this thread, My bad, But Per Rotoworld, Randy Moss has NOT officially hit the waiver wire. Sounds like the NFL and Vikings have "suspended" this whole "transaction" because the Vikings Higher-ups WANT Moss on the Roster, but Childress, Who I guess has "control of the 53-man roster" wants Moss gone. So they're at odds right now. http://www.rotoworld.com/content/HeadLines.aspx?sport=NFL&hl=188701
