ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the deal to send wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings has been completed.

According to Schefter the Patriots will receive a 3rd round pick in 2011 in exchange for Moss, and he is expected to suit up for the Vikings Monday night against the New York Jets.

An interesting side note to this story.  As a result of this trade, Moss will miss both the Vikings and Patriots bye week, and will play in 17 games this season.  One of those games will be a return to New England on October 31st when the Vikings visit Foxboro.
