Vikings Waive WR Randy Moss

The Minnesota Vikings have waived wide receiver Randy Moss, Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network reports.

Re-acquired in October from the New England Patriots, Moss caught 13 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns in his second stint with the Vikings, who originally selected him with the 21st overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft.

Moss caught one pass for 8 yards in Sunday's 28-18 loss to the Patriots, after which Moss made some critical comments about the Vikings while expressing his admiration for the Patriots' franchise.

"This is no disrespect to the Minnesota Vikings and their organization ... the captains, Wilfork, Tommy boy, Mayo...I'm forgetting somebody...Kevin Faulk. Man, I miss them guys," Moss said on Sunday night. "I miss the team. It was hard for me to come here and play. It's been an up and down roller-coaster emotionally all week. And then to be able to come in here and see those guys running plays that I know what they're doing and the sense that they had on the field, the running game. So I kind of know what type of feeling they have in that locker room, and I just want to be able to tell the guys that I miss the hell out of them, every last helmet in that locker room."

Because the traded deadline has passed, Moss is subject to the NFL's waiver system.

The 0-7 Buffalo Bills have top priority, followed by the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers (1-6), and 2-6 teams such as the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos. Detroit, Cleveland, and Cincinnati are next in line, but are unlikely to add high-profile receiver at this point in the season.

The 3-5 San Diego Chargers, however, might have interest in adding Moss for their attempt to turn around another slow start to the season.

New England has the NFL's best record, and are therefore unlikely to be awarded Moss, should they put a claim in.
