Sources have reportedly informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Minnesota Vikings are currently in trade talks with the New England Patriots about acquiring the services of future hall of fame receiver Randy Moss.
According to both Foxsports.com and Schefter, Moss would have to agree to a contract extension with the Vikings before a deal could occur, but a deal is far from complete, and may not materialize.
A report from the Boston Herald surfaced earlier today claiming that Moss asked to be traded from New England after the team's Week 1 win. Whether or not this report sparked the trade talks seems unlikely considering the short time window between the publishing of the article and the circulation of trade rumors.
Either way, the future hall of fame receiver, if his wish is granted, would be shipped off to play with Brett Favre, who lobbied for Moss' services in 2007, only to see him shipped off to Oakland. Although this trade may seem like a loss for the Patriots, it actually makes quite a bit of sense. Here's five reason why.
