Randy Moss Released By Vikings, According To NFL Network

The experiment of bringing Randy Moss back to Minnesota is apparently over. According to NFL Network's Michael Lombardi, the Vikings have waived Moss

Lombardi reported via Twitter Monday afternoon, just before 3 P.M. ET, that head coach Brad Childress told the Vikings in a meeting that they waived the receiver after Moss did not travel back to Minnesota with the club. Moss was not present at the meeting. 

Moss was traded from the Patriots to the Vikings for a third-round draft pick during New England's Week 4 bye. In four games with Minnesota, Moss caught 13 passes and two touchdowns. 

On Sunday, the Vikings lost to the Patriots, after which Moss said in his press conference that we no longer answering questions from the media for the rest of the season, complained that the Vikings' coaching staff did not listen to his scouting report and took time to say how much he missed Bill Belichick and the Patriots. 

Expect plenty more on this as it develops, both in this StoryStream as well as SB Nation Minnesota and our team blogs, Daily Norseman and Pats Pulpit
