Randy Moss Officially Released, Had A Bad Attitude

Randy Moss has been officially placed on waivers by the Minnesota Vikings, meaning that every NFL team will have the opportunity to claim him according to an ESPN report.

If Moss is not claimed, he will be free to sign a new contract with any team and the Vikings would be on the hook for the remaining $3.388 million on his contract. He’d then be available for around $450,000 and Moss could choose the team he would like to join.

Various league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and even the Patriots are among the teams possibly interested in claiming Moss.

“Obviously, there’s a number of clubs who could use Randy,” his agent Joel Segal said Tuesday on ESPN Radio’s “The Scott Van Pelt Show.” Segal added that he was not in talks with any potential suitors and would not do so until a claim is made.

“We’re going to let the waiver process play itself out, see who claims Randy and then hopefully it will be a good situation,” he said.

As far as what led to his release, that story also breaks down quite a few situations, most randomly when he decided to berate local restaurant Tinucci’s.

Hopefully someone claims Moss so the Vikings aren’t on the hook for his whole contract.
