Reaction to the Vikings acquisition of Randy Moss will likely continue to trickle in, so rather than come up with creative paragraphs to introduce each quote, we’re just going to compile a working list of quotes.
We’ll begin with a new one from RB Adrian Peterson, and then include the thoughts we’ve already placed on other parts of the site. As new players chime in, we’ll add their quote to the top of this list.
Mark Wilf: “This is an exciting day for the Vikings organization and our fans. Randy has a special place in this organization’s history and we’re looking forward to his contributions going forward. It’s important to add good football players to the roster whenever possible, and with Randy we feel that’s exactly what we’ve done. We welcome him back to the team.”
Jared Allen: “Awesome. That’s the only way to describe it. He’s a heck of a player. That guy is a beast.”
Antoine Winfield: “I’m excited. I played one year with him here (2004) and he’s a great teammate. He’ll be great for our locker room. And he still has the skillset to get the job done.”
Adrian Peterson: “It’s a great move getting Randy Moss in here. We’ve just been missing something and I think he can give us another threat down the field. The opportunity to play with a guy like Randy Moss, one of the best wide receivers to ever play the game, that’s a chance that doesn’t come along every day. I’ve always been a fan of his and still am to this day. To have a chance to perform on the field with him and the talent that we have gathered here is pretty amazing.”
Brett Favre: “This is an exciting move, I think everybody feels that in the locker room. 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.”
Kevin Williams: “I think everybody was a little surprised when they heard the news, but I think it’s a good move. 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.”
Brad Childress: “We feel very good about the opportunity to add a player of Randy Moss’ caliber to this football team. He is a tremendous competitor and was an integral member of the Vikings organization from 1998-2004. Once again, ownership was completely supportive of our efforts to add a valuable football player to our team. I know the entire organization is thrilled to welcome him back to the Twin Cities and look forward to his contributions.”
