According to reports from NFL.com, the Minnesota Vikings have cut newly acquired Randy Moss.

Moss came back to Minnesota in a trade with the New England Patriots for a third round pick in the 2011 draft.

This is quite a shocking revelation. It appears that the Vikings may be cutting their loses on the 2010 season after the loss to the Patriots left them with a 2-5 record.

Randy Moss was acquired to be a deep threat for the Vikings, who had already lost a big receiving threat in Sidney Rice.

The experiment has not gone according to plan.

This past week Moss had one reception against his former team, and Favre seemed unable to incorporate Moss into the offense.

The release may have to do with Randy Moss's effort (or lack thereof) in the fourth quarter, which led to Favre being knocked out of the game with a serious contusion.

These are just preliminary reports, but it seems like the 2010 Vikings may already be looking to next season.
