FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer is reporting that the New England Patriots are in serious discussions with the Minnesota Vikings involving a trade that would send Randy Moss back to the team that drafted him.
The Patriots currently are tied for first in their division so it makes sense to wonder why the Pats would consider sending the highly talented Moss to the Vikings. Moss has made it known that he is unhappy with his contract and that he wants to sign a long-term extension with New England.
It doesn't appear that New England wants to pony up the dough for Moss; at least not until the season's over.
Moss didn't record a catch in the team's win over the Miami Dolphins Monday night and a day later it's being reported that the Pats are looking to trade him. It makes one wonder what happened behind closed doors after the game.
In my opinion it would be a huge mistake for New England to ship moss to Minnesota and here's why.
