Moss Traded to the Pats
Randy Moss, one of the best wide receivers and most controversial WR in the game of football was traded to the New England Patriots.
In the 2nd day of the 2007 NFL draft, which was on Sunday, the 5-time pro bowler was shipped off the New England for just a 4th round draft pick. It seems that Oakland really wanted to get rid of Randy for such a low price.
Moss said few words during the interviews on Sunday. 'The Moss of old is back,'' he declared Sunday.
But in New England, that will be a big question. Is the Moss of old back? With Minnesota, he was looking like one of the greatest WR ever helping the Vikings to a NFL record for total points in a season, getting them to the NFC championship game and getting to 5 pro bowls. But after a 8-8 season, and losing to the Eagles in a playoff game, the Vikings traded the star receiver in the 2005 draft to Oakland. But during his time in Oakland, it seemed Moss disappeared of the face of the earth as he was not the savior for the Raiders' franchise as many had hoped he would be and was not really a factor in any games. But after 2 years in Oakland, he was traded to New England.
If Moss can be " the Moss of old ", than he will help a Patriots' team without much talent in their receivers after losing star receiver Deion Branch to Seattle last season. It will be very interesting to see how Moss plays in New England.
