Randy Moss to the Vikings?

According to FOXSports.com’s Jay Glazer, the Vikings are close to acquiring wide receiver Randy Moss from the Patriots in a shocking move.

Patriots sources said the deal is contingent on Moss signing a contract extension with the Vikings. All sides are working to hammer out the contract.

The Vikings have been searching for a star wide receiver to pair with QB Brett Favre. They failed to trade for Chargers WR Vincent Jackson, and with Sidney Rice out with injury, the team needs some help.

Moss, 33, is in the last year of a three-year deal he signed in 2007. He has repeatedly complained publicly that he does not have a new contract, and maybe was a little ticked when Tom Brady signed his extension before the season. Despite the fact that Bill Belichick and other Patriots publicly defended Moss, he may have angered the organization from within.

In the Patriots 41-14 win over the Dolphins, Moss had zero catches, including a drop in the endzone after Tom Brady attempted a fake spike near the end of the first half.

So far in 2010, Moss has nine catches for 139 yards and three touchdowns.

The Vikings and Patriots face each other in Week 8 on Halloween.
