Moss was ineffective during his time with the team, totaling 13 catches for 179 yards in four games.
The waiver rules provide that any team may now claim Moss, with rights offered in order of record, from worst to best. First on this list would be the Buffalo Bills, followed by the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers.
Minnesota was either unable to come to terms with Moss on an extension or had no interest in signing him to one at all. Moss is widely regarded as one of the best wide receivers of all time, but the timing of his release suggests it was not entirely his on-field play that was to blame.
That may have soured him to the team, who at 2-5 is on the brink of being out of playoff contention. Whatever the reasons, Randy Moss could be wearing his third NFL uniform in a month next Sunday.
