Rodney: Moss was becoming 'distraction'

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said Wednesday he believed that wide receiver Randy Moss “was becoming a distraction” in New England, but was still “a little shock[ed]” by coach Bill Belichick’s decision to trade him.

“You have a lot of players, young players in that locker room and Belichick didn’t want that negativity to feed over to those young players and impact them in a negative way, so Belichick made this move because Randy Moss was not happy, came out and spoke out against the organization.  He felt like this was a move that had to be made to move forward.

“You have to understand, too, Belichick didn’t win any Super Bowls with Moss. They set a bunch of records offensively, but Belichick realized the locker room is more important than one individual. Randy Moss did a lot, he was a great leader in the locker room but at the end of the day the Patriots gave him...

Revis: Moss put 'his foot on the brake'

Darrelle Revis spoke to the media Wednesday and gave his thoughts on the Randy Moss trade and how the wideout performed in the Patriots Week 2 loss to the Jets. Revis has feuded with Moss in the past and might face him again next Monday (Revis is still battling a hamstring injury) as the Jets face off with the Vikings. 

 

"He came out full force, early in the game," the All-Pro cornerback told The Star Ledger when asked about Moss in Week 2. "In the second half, you could tell he was kind of like putting his foot on the brake. But everybody knows that’s Randy: sometimes he comes out and plays 100 percent, sometimes he doesn’t."

 

Revis did tell the Star Ledger that he thought the trade to the Vikings might give Moss "new hope."

Peter King: ‘I worry about [the Pats] offense’

Peter King of Sports Illustrated, SI.com and NBC Sports joined the Dale & Holley Show on Wednesday to break down the deal sending wide receiver Randy Moss from the Patriots to the Vikings. King said that while he gives the Patriots the benefit of the doubt in their roster decisions, he had concerns about what might happen to their offense without the Pro Bowler.

“I really worry about their offense if they don’t figure out a way to get  some of the pressure away from the young players who they need to make  plays – Aaron Hernandez and Brandon Tate,” said King. “We’ll never know this for sure, [but] the Patriots just had to be fed up with  Moss in some ways to make this happen. Clearly, even if he for some  reason is not the player that he has been for some reason, he still  drags Vontae Davis, one of the best corners in football, he still drags  Vontae Davis away from the rest of...

Childress welcomes Moss back to Vikes

Earlier on Wednesday, the Patriots made their official announcement on the Randy Moss trade. Now, the Vikings have done the same, welcoming home the receiver who starred for them from 1998 through 2004.

“We feel very good about the opportunity to add a player of Randy Moss’ caliber to this football team,” Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said in a statement provided by the team through its website. “He is a tremendous competitor and was an integral member of the Vikings organization from 1998-2004. Once again, ownership was completely supportive of our efforts to add a valuable football player to our team. I know the entire organization is thrilled to welcome him back to the Twin Cities and look forward to his contributions.”

Moss returns to a place where he enjoyed great success as a younger player — he compiled six 1,000-yard seasons with Minnesota. The Vikings have had serious issues at wide...
