FILE - This Oct. 7, 2010, file photo shows Minnesota Vikings new wide receiver Randy Moss answering a question at a news conference in Eden Prairie, Minn. The Vikings have waived Moss. Linebacker Ben Leber says coach Brad Childress informed the team that Moss had been let go during a team meeting on Monday afternoon, Nov. 1, 2010. The NFL Network first reported the Vikings waived Moss, but team officials have not confirmed the news.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) In his last act with Minnesota, Randy Moss stepped to a podium to fawn over the New England Patriots, criticize the Vikings for ignoring his strategic advice, and announce his plan to interview himself the rest of the season instead of letting reporters do it.
So much for that boost to Brett Favres passing attack.
After four games and three disappointing losses, coach Brad Childress showed Moss who was boss by telling Vikings players in a team meeting Monday afternoon the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was being let go.
Just four weeks ago, Moss was gushing about his return to Minnesota, where he looked forward to seeing those purple No. 84 jerseys in the crowd more than five years after the Vikings first dumped him in a trade.
The deal that brought him back last month from the Patriots cost the Vikings (2-5) a third-round draft pick and more than $1.5 million for those four games.
