Vikings won't go to the well again with Randy Moss
Randy Moss has starred in some of his own online videos this week as the 35-year-old wide receiver begins what he hopes will be a successful comeback bid.
We can rule one destination out for the future Hall of Famer. The third time will not be the charm for the Minnesota Vikings.
General manager Rick Spielman said today he is not interested in pursuing Moss even though you could make a case that wide receiver is one of the club’s bigger needs.
“We'll be moving on," Spielman said, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Randy was a great player, but we'll focus more on trying to get a younger team.”
Ex-Vikings coach Brad Childress made a blunder in pushing for the Vikings to trade for Moss during the 2010 season. The deal greased the skids for his exit from town and Moss was placed on waivers before the year was out.
Of course, Moss will best be remembered for starring for the Vikings for seven seasons from 1998 to 2004. If he’s going to be paid in 2012, he’ll have to get his straight cash elsewhere.
