The Minnesota Vikings on Monday surprised the NFL world by releasing WR Randy Moss, for whom they had traded less than a month prior. We've yet to hear from anyone on the record regarding the reasons for Moss's release and his agent tells the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he was "very sad" to hear the news on Monday.
"Randy is very sad to find out about being waived by the Vikings this morning," Moss' agent, Joel Segal, said in an e-mail to the Star Tribune. "He has and always will remain fond of the fans in Minnesota. We will let the process of the waiver wire take its course and we will move on from there."
The way Moss talked on Sunday evening after the Vikings lost to the Patriots the words "very sad" wouldn't come to mind. Moss spent several minutes praising his former New England teammates saying how much he missed them. He even ended it with this gem: "I don't know how many more times I'm going to be up here in New England, but I'm going to leave the New England Patriots, Coach Belichick, man, with a salute, man. I love you guys, I miss you, I'm out."
The next step: Finding out by 4:00 p.m. Tuesday whether Moss was claimed off the waiver wire.
