PFZ's Breakdown of the Randy Moss Trade
Since yesterdays big trade of Randy Moss from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota VIkings many people around pro football are debating on who made out better in this trade.
When I step back and look at the trade I believe both teams won at the end of the day. I will break down my reasons below.
New England Patriots
- The Patriots only traded away a 4th round pick when they traded for Moss from the Oakland Raiders four years ago. And now that they traded him to the Vikings and received a 3rd round pick in return. So four years later the Pats actually made a “profit” off of Randy Moss. All I can say is, that’s impressive.
- The Patriots weren’t going to re-sign Moss anyway so it was better to get something for him now, rather than just let him walk in free agency.
- Brett Favre and the Vikings offense have been lacking a big play threat with Sidney Rice out after Hip surgery and Percy Harvin battling migraines. Moss will now give Favre a big target that he can trust every time he steps back to throw.
- Moss just might be the spark that the Vikings need since they have started out with a disappointing 1-2 record.
