Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss is being traded to the Minnesota Vikings, according to an ESPN.com source.
Following a blow-out win Monday night over the Miami Dolphins where the special teams set records in TDs, Moss continued his complaints about his lack of targets this season. The team is finally letting the unhappy receiver go arranging a trade with the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a 2011 third-round pick.
Randy Moss started his career in Minnesota before going to the Oakland Raiders and then the New England Patriots. The pro bowler will be paired with Brett Favre in Minnesota, who has been without his favorite target Sidney Rice due to injury.
Rumor has it that the Patriots were especially willing to give up Moss because they will be pursuing Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers, who is currently sitting out the 2010 season over a contract dispute.
