Jay Glazer reported Monday night that the Patriots are reportedly in talks with the Vikings about a potential trade that would send wide receiver Randy Moss out to Minnesota.
According to the report, Glazer says the deal is contigent upon Moss working out a contract with the Vikings, and all sides are still trying to hammer out the contract – citing a Patriots source.
Twitter is buzzing right now with different reports from the local media, with most reporting that no one is shooting it down, leading most to feel something is up.
Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald also Tweeted that “I am told a trade is not ‘done.’ I have not been told a trade is not being discussed. So yes, one is being discussed for Moss and the [Vikings]”.
Rapoport also reported that the Patriots claim, “there is no trade.” Which is to be expected, as they’re obviously not going to confirm anything.
Another guy who has a good relationship with Bill Belichick, Michael Lombardi, Tweeted that, “I think there is smoke here with the Moss to [Minnesota] rumors, but I know the Pats have not given Moss permission to talk [about] a new deal with anyone.”
So it appears something is in the works. We’ll have more as it becomes available.
