During the trade talks in 2007, Brett Favre, who was with the Green Bay Packers at the time, lobbied team management to spend the money and lure Moss to the Wisconsin team. However, Green Bay management could not secure more than a one year deal with Moss and elected not to initiate a trade. Favre's relationship with the team was never the same. Tension grew between number 4 and the Green Bay Packer management; and so the story goes...
Fast forward to the 2010 season, Brett Favre is now in his second year as Quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings Quarterback will finally have his way by having Moss join him as a Viking for the remainder of what may be his final season.
The Patriots will receive a 2011 third-round draft pick in exchange for the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. Moss started his NFL career with the Vikings in 1998 and holds the single season record for touchdowns.
The trade will be completed by the end of business today...
