Patriots deny any trade is coming of Moss


The Patriots have responded to the flurry of rumors that hit the web tonight about them moving WR Randy Moss to the team he first started with – the Vikings.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald has tweeted that the Pats have done nothing with Moss, at least not yet. The Patriots are saying, “there is no trade.”

The question now is – can a deal be made? The rumor mill has the Vikings sending a 3rd round pick next year and conditional pick the year after. Also there are rumors about a contract extension, which Moss would probably want considering he is a free agent after this year.

So while there’s no deal in place now – stay tuned.

  1. wtfvikesfan says:

    Latest rumor is this is a 3 team trade. Moss to Vikings, V. Jackson to New england. And picks to Chargers.

  2. Lost Viking says:

    WTF. Someone is suggesting there’s a Vike safety involved.

    Hell, why not throw Vike throw Tyrell Johnson’s name into the mix as this is all conjecture? A 3rd and TJ then maybe the low round pick is coming to the Vike?

  3. wtfvikesfan says:

    I think it is a 3rd only. Pats fans and radio is reporting a 3rd only.

  4. hookem says:

    If it was any other team I would believe there is no trade, but Patriots always deny everything.

  5. Ole says:

    Get Moss, but not for anything higher than a 3rd rounder

    Johnny, so glad to hear that your work release from prison is keeping you extra busy. It must be tough keeping up with inmates who are 20 years younger than you. Next time ask the judge if you can serve your sentence in Hawaii, my lawn needs mowing and mango season is right around the corner

  6. hookem says:

    also why would the Patriots trade Moss to a team they have to play this season?

    I would love to see this happen but just dont know how true it is.

  7. fozz44 says:

    They are right. There is no trade. Trade talks? yes. Imminent? Most likely. But yes, as of right now, ‘there is no trade’.

  8. marty264 says:

    He later tweeted:
    “I am told a trade is not “done.” I have not been told a trade is not being discussed. So yes, one is being discussed for Moss and the VIkes”

    Congrats to Freds for losing by only 8 points this last week

    Thanks to the Sioux for being kind to the Bison

  10. Fragile Freds says:

    Give them the third and throw in Farve . PLEASE!

  11. Fragile Fred says:

    Freds lost in fantasy football? No! really?

  12. Fragile Fred says:

    Lets get Ziggy’s plane and send Jared Allen , Hutch and Gary Andersen to Foxboro to seal the deal.

  13. Vikadan11 says:

    This could be big trouble for the trade ~ Maybe Moss plays for the Vikings just to pi$$ NE off ~ ?

    While Moss certainly would welcome a long-term deal in his return to Minnesota, the issue is a bit more complicated for the Vikings. The team already gave Favre an additional $3 million guaranteed to return in mid-August but, according to NFL sources, the Vikings have told several of their pending free agents (Chad Greenway, Sidney Rice, Ray Edwards, Ryan Longwell, Ben Leber) that they weren’t prepared to do new deals at this point.

    i sure liked the way the rest of our division played this week. don’t care about the kitties much yet, and actually like they’re improvement (until we see ’em for the last game). the bears and phackers are crap and all banged up – hahahahahahaha
    then comes today. lynch goes to seattle, another hahahahaha, and we might get moss, a bigger BBWWWWHHHHHHAAAAAAAHHHHHHHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
    so, Griffen better be good. the only thing better could be if the pats take bernie off our hands for us, but no, not gonna happen.

    let’s just hope shank’s hammy isn’t too bad, and GET MOSS BACK!!!
    i wanna break out my old 84 jersey

  15. Fran the Man says:

    Just found out about this. All I can say is. . .HOLYSH*T! Are you kidding me?!!

    I really think if this happens, Randy will sell out completely and if him and Favre can work out some things, we could be a VERY improved team.
    I’m stoked!

    “Randy Moss going back to Minnesota means more to me than world peace.”
