Foxsports.com is reporting that The New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings are discussing a deal that would send Randy Moss back to the team who drafted him 1998. However, the deal cannot be done unless Moss works out a new deal with Minnesota. We have heard Moss express his frustration with The Patriots and even indicated that this may be his final season with New England.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer has stated via twitter, that the two sides are addressing Randy Moss' contract, which needs to be worked out in order for this deal to be finalized. Earlier today, The Vikings traded defensive end Jayme Mitchell to the Cleveland Browns, leaving Minnesota one man short of a 53 man roster.

Many seem to believe that The Vikings dealt Mitchell in order to try and acquire Randy Moss. The Vikings are in need of a wide receiver with Sidney Rice sidelined for half the season. Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre has stated in the past that he would love to team up with deep threat Randy Moss, and he may finally get his wish if the deal goes through.

This is great news for Brett Favre, and may be disappointing news for Tom Brady. If The Patriots actually deal Moss to The Vikings, they will lack a true number 1 receiver. Although Tom Brady would be without his main target, this never phased Bill Belichick Brady in the past, as they won 3 Super Bowls without players of the caliber of Randy Moss. If Moss is in fact dealt, this would be a shocking deal that can help Minnesota get back to The NFC Championship.
