Report: Pats to get third-round pick for Moss

The rumored trade between the Patriots and Vikings would send Randy Moss to Minnesota for a third-round draft pick, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. The story quotes a source as saying, "I'd be shocked if it doesn't happen," and predicted the deal will go through Wednesday.

 

Moss, a seven-time Pro Bowl receiver, is in the final season of his four-year deal with the Patriots. He was acquired from the Raiders for a fourth-round draft pick prior to the 2007 season.

Sox owners to buy Liverpool soccer team

English Premiere League soccer team Liverpool FC anounced Wednesday that it has accepted a purchase offer by New England Sports Ventures, the parent company of the Red Sox. Liverpool already is owned by Americans — Tom Hicks (owner of the Dallas Stars and former owner of the Texas Rangers) and George Gillett Jr. (former owner of the Montreal Canadiens) — who are embroiled in a legal dispute with the team's board of directors.

 

Said LFC chairman Martin Broughtond: "I am delighted that we have been able to successfully conclude the sale process which has been thorough and extensive.

 

"The Board decided to accept NESV's proposal on the basis that it best met the criteria we set out originally for a suitable new owner. NESV's philosophy is all about winning and they have fully demonstrated that at Red Sox.

 

"We've met them in Boston, London and Liverpool over several weeks and I...

Report: Moss 'blockbuster' will happen Wed.

The Patriots and Vikings plan on completing a "blockbuster" deal on Wednesday that will send wide receiver Randy Moss to Minnesota, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Moss, 33, is a seven-time Pro Bowler who was drafted by the Vikings in 1998 and spent his first seven seasons in Minnesota before being traded to Oakland in 2005. Moss found new life in his career after being dealt to the Patriots in 2007 for a fourth-round draft pick — in New England, he set an NFL record with 23 touchdown receptions in his first season with the Patriots.

However, Moss, who is in the final year of a three-year deal with New England, has said on multiple occasions he does not feel wanted by the Patriots, and anticipates playing somewhere else in 2011.

Added Belichick: "It was very satisfying for me as a coach to see our team have that kind of success after they worked so hard at it in practice and talking about it at meetings and so forth. I was happy for them. They deserved it, because they went out and played a good football game — against a good football team. [The Dolphins are] going to win some games this year."
