Randy Moss Waived, Brad Childress Confirms Move In Brief Statement

Monday afternoon's drama surrounding the release of Randy Moss from the Vikings finally came to a conclusion after hours of speculation with an official release from head coach Brad Childress on the team's official site, confirming they will waive the receiver after just four games with the team. 

"This decision was made based on what we thought was in the best interests of the Minnesota Vikings, both in the short and long term," said Head Coach Brad Childress. "We wish Randy the best as he moves forward in his career."

The statement from Childress comes not too long after Moss' agent, Joel Segal, told the AP that the hold up in releasing the receiver was "merely a technical thing." It's expected that Moss will officially be released on Tuesday, says Jay Glazer.  

Once he is waived and placed on waivers, teams will have 24 hours to claim him.
