Rumors of a potential trade of Randy Moss to the Vikings and then confirmation of the deal have dominated the sports and NFL landscape over the past 18 hours. In that time you’ve surely heard a lot of opinions regarding the trade, from national voices to local reporters.
But now that it’s a done deal, it’ll be interesting to hear what some of the current Vikings have to say about the development. Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress has already explained that Vikings ownership was supportive during the process of acquiring Moss and that the organization is thrilled to have Moss back in the fold.
A couple of Vikings captains have also chimed in on the matter and have echoed Childress’ sentiments.
“This is an exciting move, I think everybody feels that in the locker room,” QB Brett Favre said. “It’s rare you get to play with a future Hall of Famer and get to appreciate their talents up close. Randy Moss is a great player and his career speaks for itself. I’ve admired him from a distance for a long time and you can’t help but be impressed by the guy.”
DT Kevin Williams, who played with Moss in Minnesota for 2 seasons (2003-04), welcomed the addition and said the acquisition will give the team a spark
“I think everybody was a little surprised when they heard the news, but I think it’s a good move,” Williams said. “It will give us a spark and open some things up. Randy’s a guy who has always worked at his craft and I think that has showed over his whole career. He’s been successful and been a part of winning a lot of games. He’s one of the most competitive guys I’ve ever played with and I’m happy to have him back with us.”
