The Tennessee Titans have claimed wide receiver Randy Moss off of waivers, according to NFL Network's Michael Lombardi.

According to Lombardi, the Titans were the only team to put in a claim for Moss.

Moss was released by the Vikings on Tuesday after he was reportedly having behavioral issues both in the locker room and to the media after Sunday's 28-18 loss to his former team, the New England Patriots.

Moss was traded to the Vikings in exchange for a third round draft pick just 4 weeks ago. The Vikings also received a seventh round pick in the deal.

Moss was released by the Vikings yesterday, after playing just four games for the club in which he had 13 receptions for 174 yards and two touchdowns.

In addition, his actions during a team buffet meal last Friday upset many team mates, including Brett Farve. According to Gus Tinnuci, co-owner of Tinucci's Restaurant and Catering, Moss was quoted to have said, 'What's this (expletive)? I wouldn't eat this (expletive). I wouldn't even serve this (expletive) to my dog."

During an interview Tuesday, Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said,"It was a mistake," and admitted to not even alerting Moss to the decision himself, but rather through Rick Speilman, the Vikings Vice President of Personnel.

"I didn't end up talking to Randy. I made phone calls that made unanswered,  I texted him a few times to try and have him get back in touch, and Rick ended up finally getting a conversation with him."

Childress stated multiple times throughout the interview that he was not interested in getting into specifics, even though he asked fans to embrace the wide receivers return to the Vikings four weeks ago. Many analysts around the league have hinted at the possibility of this being Childress' last year with the Vikings due to this situation.

The Titans will pick up the remaining $3 million contract for Moss this season.

Moss will be joining an already 5-3 Titans team that could now have a lot of potential. With Vince Young at quarterback, Moss could become a huge passing threat in future games with the Titans.

The Titans, who were 22nd on the NFL waiver order, are the third team to have Moss on their roster within a span of 26 days.

The Titans are headed into their bye week, but look for Moss in action for his new team in week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
