Randy Moss on the move?
Unless you’re living in 1908, you’ve heard the reports that the New England Patriots are in discussions to send wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a third-round draft pick.
However, FoxSports.com’s Jay Glazer reported that the deal is contingent upon Moss and the Vikings reaching an agreement on a new contract for the Pro Bowl wide receiver, so it’s not a done deal just yet.
So what does it all mean?
For starters, this would cause a drop in value to quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Wes Welker. Losing a vertical threat like Moss on the outside will allow opposing defenses to focus more of their energy on shutting down the short to intermediate passing game, which is Welker’s specialty.
However, don’t look to make a move just yet. Welker would likely see an increase in targets and Brady is still Tom Brady.
The good news is that the stock values of tight end Aaron Hernandez (18-240-0) and wide receiver Brandon Tate (11-135-0) would be on the rise, so you may want to consider hitting the waiver wire and making a move.
As for Minnesota, if this deal were to go down, the values of Moss, quarterback Brett Favre and running back Adrian Peterson would all be on the rise. For those of you that listened to our advice about being patient with Favre, you could be in for a big reward.
