    The Minnesota Vikings are attempting to pull off their biggest blockbuster since acquiring Brett Favre. has learned that the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots have been in serious trade talks and are very close to a deal that would send All-Pro wide receiver Randy Moss back to the team that drafted him. However, Patriots sources say the deal is contigent upon Moss working out a contract with the Vikings. All sides are still trying to hammer out the contract Tuesday. In a 41-point outburst Monday night over the Dolphins, Moss caught zero passes, and he has made his displeasure known with his contract status in New England.

    That would be phenomenal. Herschel Walker-esque!

    I'm mixed on this one, but the Packers sure need him more than we do. He just doesn't seem happy at New England, so maybe he needs ANOTHER fresh start. I'm curious what the Pats are asking for a draft pick. He's going to be pricey to sign, and he's being covered one on one by the better corners successfully, most of the time. I don't think it's a good move by the Packers, but they seem desperate enough to pursue it.

    Where have you been TD? Brett is with the Vikings now dude....:icon_cheesygrin:

    This seems to me to be more of a calculated move by Minnesota in order to appease Favre.

    This would be insane! Hes done nothing for me in FF...but this could change it all!
  9. Does Favre walk away after the season despite the deal?

    He's been wanting Moss since he was in Green Bay.....

    That's a lot of drama queens for one team. Look how it's working out for the Bengals.

    What drama queens do the Vikings have? Favre is mostly a drama queen for his off season antics, been pretty quiet during his time as a Viking all together. Only other player I would regard as a drama queen is Ray Edwards. Moss didn't really cause problems in New England either, until this year when he's been vocal about his displeasure with his contract.
