All the i’s have been dotted and the t’s crossed. The Vikings have reached a deal with the New England Patriots to acquire WR Randy Moss.

Other terms of the trade have not been disclosed and the deal is contingent on Moss passing a physical examination.

Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress will address the media at Winter Park at 2:30 p.m. CT today and Moss will be available to the media after tomorrow’s (Thursday) practice.

Moss will wear #84.

    Brett Fave back to pass on the NY Jets 40yard line, Randy Moss streaking into the corner of the end zone for a TOUCH DOWN ! Brett Fave’s 500th and record setting ! just the first of many in 201 on the road to the super bowl in Dallas !

    Randy Moss

    Once Rice comes back defences better watch out. Rice on one side, Moss on the other, Harvin in the slot, and berrnard in the other slot go ahead defence pick your poison because you going to have to double both moss and rice so guess what here come peterson watch NFC here we come

    I became a Vikings fan when I was 6, when my dad took me to my first game against the Giants at Giants Stadium. This was 2 years before we drafted Randy. I grew up watching Randy, he was always my favorite player and childhood favorite athlete. To me, this is making up for the mistake they made in 2005 and letting Randy end his career the right way

    I became a Vikings fan, WATCHING Moss come down with ridiculous catch after ridiculous catch when I was younger. He is the reason I got into following the NFL and the reason I am a Vikings fan. I will be breaking my 84 Jersey out shortly.
    Welcome Back Randy!!!!!

    II LOVE YOU, RANDY!!!!!!! I have missed you so much. It made me sick to have to watch the Evil New England Patriots to be able to see you play. I can’t wait to watch you play now that you are back where you belong! Gotta go and call everybody that I know! God Bless.

    This is going to be sick. Vikings are going 14-2 and winning it all. Theres no way defences can cover the 2 best WR’s in the NFL, lets go VIKES!!!!!

    Good to see Randy back in a Vikings uniform. Sit the best receiver that I watch play since the tieams beginning. This should get the Vikes back in the winning column. Hopefully it works out for the team. Maybe we will see Farve back next season with all our wide receivers and running backs.

    YES! My dream came true!!! I was saying a couple of weeks ago that we should try for Moss instead of V. Jackson. It just made more sense to me and now he’s back! I hope he is as excited as us the fans are! Wonder if he’ll have a few tears when he hits the field with HIS team?! I bet Favre was jumping on his bed like a crazy happy school girl when he heard the news! lol

    Thanks! My prayer was answer. It prove that as fan we should express our opinions. I been saying for years for the Vikings to bring back Moss. If we can get another offensive coordinator we would be awesome.

    Wow–This is the trade of the century—Brett Favre teaming up with Randy Moss–What a dream match-up!!!—It’s just what both players needed as well the Vikings to make it to Dallas and a SUPER BOWL!!

    Everyone needs to cool it. It’s great Randy is back in town, but our secondary needs to be healthy and we still need Rice to recover fully. Our offensive line has a lot more to prove and still could fail us. Good thing AP is a stud. They need to win their next five or six games until I start thinking Super Bowl

    Why don’t u cool it Condor and let everyone enjoy the moment of having Moss back before u try to dissect what’s wrong like a Monday morning armchair quarterback!

  33. By Chill Out on Oct 6, 2010 | Reply

    It is amazing how one receiver can make everyone believe the Vikes are back. Our offensive line has not allowed Farve time to throw to anyone all year. Even with 10 Mosses downfield Brett will still need some time. Hopefully, just the threat of Moss will pull 1-2 folks out of pass rush. We will have to see.

    It certainly squishes the anxiety we had every week about whether we could score more than 10 points. But we all know Moss, and he can be hot and cold (his decision…). Let’s hope he plans to be hot all year. All that said, for the first time this year I am actually exicted to see the offense go on the field. I think Peterson will be the real benficiary of this change.

    Good Luck with this clown. What a head case and his best days are behind him. Now you can watch Favre throw even more interceptions as he tries to make Randy happy by throwing to him when he’s double teamed. The Pats are better without him.

    Seriously, where are the no-mind cheeseheads that have been on here for the last 3 weeks? I think the nightmares are returning along with #84. Along with Favre being here, it’s gotta be misery.

    I’m a Pats fan and a Vikings fan, having moved from St. Paul to Boston 10 years ago… I’m really happy for both teams today! Pats gave up a 4th round pick for him, got 3 years of hall-of-fame production, and now get a 3rd round pick for giving him up. Now that’s what I call return-on-investment! Randy and Brett, please crush the Jets on Monday night for me? I’ll be wearing my old #84 Vikings jersey proudly!

    Ok, heres the deal, the biggest winner in this trade is AP, Ap now is dreaming of 2,500 yards!!! Ap is jacked up!! Moss makes the whole team better. How can A viking fan listen to the main stream sports media? The sports media hates the Vikings, pick up Moss and you still dont give the Vikings a chance!!!

  52. By London paris xxxxx on Oct 6, 2010 | Reply

    Lookfor Sidney to recover a little bit faster, or maybe hes traded for Jackson? What ever the case was but the Rice injury was completely mis-manged, Rice should have had the surgery after the season. If Iam Sidney Iam now disposable,. If Jackson is not traded he is out for the season, Rice would be a very attractive option for the chargers… I have heard rumors that Rice did not have the surgery because he was not satisfied with his contract. Sidney get better, or your history.. You have a 40 year old QB, playing his guts out, step up Rice….Or your nothing more than A one hit wonder>>
