It's no secret that Randy Moss is one of the greatest wide receivers of all time and has contributed more than his fair share in the New England Patriots offense over the past few seasons, but it appears that he will be contributing somewhere else next season.
Moss has already publicly expressed his concerns with the organization about his diminished role in the Patriots' offensive scheme. On Monday night, while everyone else seemed to be in jubilant celebration over the team's win against the Miami Dolphins, Moss could be seen on the Patriots sideline with a much less joyous look on his face than that of the others.
The Patriots special teams and defense was responsible for the teams success in the match-up, not Moss. For the first time since Moss became a Patriot, he was held without a catch for the entire game. He had one chance for a TD grab, but the ball slipped through his fingers and sailed out of bounds just passed the goal line.
This could be the last straw for Moss. He is one of the best Monday Night Football performers in the history of the game, yet QB Tom Brady hardly looked his way all night. Moss loves to shine on the biggest of stages, and he didn't even get the chance to shimmer on this one.
It is now reported that Moss will be traded to the Minnesota Vikings as early as this week. But if the deal falls through and he remains a Patriot for the remainder of the year, Moss will be a free agent after the season. If he does choose to leave, he'll be looking to land on a team worthy of title contention. There will certainly be a large number of suitors calling for his services, but here's a list of some leading candidates in the Randy Moss sweepstakes.
