Skip to comments.Moss looking for a trade
Posted on 11/18/2006 9:04:25 PM PST by Terpfen
Raiders wide receiver Randy Moss is "tired" of the frustration he feels playing for a team that has won only six of 25 games since he joined the team before last season and is interested in being traded, he said on his weekly radio spot Friday.
Moss is in his second season with the Raiders and hasn't managed to recapture the magic he showed for most of his seven seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
"It's done sort of set in, man, and I'm tired of it," Moss said on Fox Sports radio. "I might want to look forward to moving somewhere else next year to have another start and really feel good about going out here and playing football."
Moss dropped this latest bombshell three hours or so before the Raiders boarded a plane for Kansas City in anticipation of their game against the Chiefs on Sunday, and four days after he attributed his dropping so many passes this season to his being unhappy.

If the Raiders do decide to trade Moss (he hits their salary cap pretty hard over the next two years), I can see him going to the Redskins, Cowboys (if they dump Owens), Jets, Jaguars, or Dolphins.
Fodder for your Raiders pinglist.
People in Hell are looking for ice water.
"Moss looking for a trade"
I agree - he should learn one.
Nah, I think he's still got value. If Deion Branch can go for a first-round pick, so can/should Moss.
And even if Moss has depreciated in value, that just makes him a steal on the trading block.
Never say never--his cap hit in 2007 is almost $10 million, and $11.25 million in 2008. You have to wonder if the Raiders feel like paying a guy that much to essentially stink up the field.
I would rather have Moss than Owens. The talent is about equal. The ego is less with Moss. The number one issue with him to me is that he is not a leader. But the WR spot is not that easy to lead from. If you put Moss on a good team, the players would make him hussle on every play.
I see, through the haze, San Diego.
I think Coughlin could get a lot out f him but you couldn't have hm and Plax on the same team.
Nope, Dallas. It's inevitable that he'll end up on the same team with T.O. just for the entertainlent factor of seeing two teammates actually kill each other during a game.
Those two would never share the same field, and you know Moss wants his old number back.
T.O. would give Moss the old Michael Westbrook/Stephen Davis treatment.
Though thinking about who would actually win a fistfight could be worthy of TradeSports.
Would love to see him play in Carolina. Imagine the duo of Steve Smith on one side and Randy Moss on the other. Hell, I could play QB in that scenario.
"If you put Moss on a good team, the players would make him hussle on every play."
Sorry, but I have to disagree. While he was here in MN, he said, "I'll play when I want to play." He is that kind of player. He quits, he gives up, and he drags people down with him. He is all ego and I am so glad he is no longer a Viking. He will be poison to any team stupid enough to take him.
Moss would get Westbrooked.
You already have Keyshawn, and he's got a little more spring in his step these days!
No one is going to give a #1 for this guy. He is the answer to nothing but brings many questions.
