Moss To Minny Would Make My Day

I woke up early this morning to complete a trade in my fantasy league that involved me getting Randy Moss, who remains one of my favorite players of all-time, despite his extensive time recently spent on rosters of teams that don’t wear purple.

After completing the trade I checked for Vikings news, of which there was none, and went off on a long day of work away from my computer.

After getting home late, I sat down with Mrs. Warwas and the new baby, and turned on NFL Network.  The ticker on the bottom said that the Vikings had traded defensive end Jayme Mitchell to Cleveland for a late round draft pick in 2012.

I was happy to see that the Vikings at least got something in return for losing one of their 10 defensive linemen, something that we all knew was inevitable.  Getting future draft power for a guy that went undrafted but could barely get on the field is not too bad of a deal.

I was instantly curious who the Vikings activated from the practice squad to take Mitchell’s roster spot, so I took to the internet to find out.

By now, you know where this is going…

Tonight the internet is an absolute web of rumors centering around the Vikings working out a deal that would bring Randy Moss back to Minnesota.

I am elated.

I could go on and on about the reasons why I think Randy’s bad reputation is not deserved and why I am so excited about the possibility of Moss rejoining the team, but I’ll restrain myself.  Let’s just say I’m a big fan of this move.

Like any trade, the compensation combined with the contract terms will factor into the equation.  The Patriots are a hard team to deal with, even when it comes to disgruntled players, but the next 24 hours are shaping up to be very, very interesting.

    Pro Bowl, 2005. I was talking to another Vikings fan

    “Why would you trade the best player in the NFL?”

    Ole – “You don’t, unless you get offered a Herschel Walker deal”

    10 days later the Vikings got Nap Harris and a draft pick, Troy Williamson

    Since then, the Vikings got sold, a new coach & 50 different players from that 2004 team. In short, no existential “baggage” issues for Moss to return to this Vikings team (well except for the parking enforcement officer he ran over)
