Funny how things work out sometimes.
The Vikings waived Randy Moss today, according to the NFL Network. Maybe it’s an admission that the season is over, maybe it’s because he gave up on a play yesterday that would’ve been a touchdown, maybe because he whined about his team after yesterday’s game, and delivered a pitch-perfect passive aggressive assessment of the team.
Who saw this coming? The Patriots, who cut ties with Moss and picked up the Vikings’ third round draft choice.
Brad Childress, the Vikings coach, gave no indication of Moss’ short tenure during his news conference with the media at Winter Park today.
“I didn’t see the video,” Childress said. “I think we did a pretty good job of heeding it,” he said in response to Moss’ complaints that the Vikings didn’t listen to his advice about the Patriots’ secrets.
“Do you think he’s the type of player you can keep happy?” Star Tribune writer Judd Zulgad asked.
“That’s all kind of conjecture stuff,” he responded.
“Do you regret acquiring him?” another reporter asked.
“Not at present,” said Childress.
Behind the scenes, Childress had already reportedly told Team Turmoil he was cutting ties with Moss. His ties with the beat writers, perhaps, is in about the same condition.
It’s unlikely Moss will resign with the Patriots. Thirty one other teams would have to pass on Moss before the Patriots could claim him off waivers.
