Moss Arrives in Minnesota
“This is gonna be a fun ride.” That’s Randy Moss on his return to the Minnesota Vikings. Moss was officially introduced at a press conference Thursday. The Vikes acquired the 33-year-old wide receiver Wednesday in a trade with the New England Patriots. Minnesota reportedly sent a third-round pick in next year’s draft to New England, while also acquiring a seventh-round pick in 2012 from the Pats. Moss, who spent the first seven years of his career with Minnesota, joins future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre and a team that fell one game shy of the Super Bowl last season. On Thursday, Favre said he hopes “there’s still some magic left with me, with him, and with this team,” adding of Moss, “how could you not want to play with this guy?” Moss holds the NFL single-season touchdown reception record with 23, set in 2007, his first year with the Pats. He has 935 career catches for 14,604 yards and 151 TDs in 189 games. Moss also played two years with the Oakland Raiders before joining the New England. He will get a chance to play against the Patriots in Foxboro on October 31st. In the meantime, Moss is set to make his new Vikings debut on Monday night when Minnesota travels to the Meadowlands to take on the New York Jets.
