    If he falls through waivers, he gets paid the vet minimum contract (around 500K for the rest of the season) plus the Vikings still have to pay out the 3+ million.

    I bet he doesn't get claimed and he goes and plays wherever he wants for 500K. Only in America can a pro athlete get fired, still get paid and be allowed to work somewhere else for a half mil a year. Randy's no dummy
    The question is does some team really want a "contract year" Randy Moss (I'm sure some do). But unless he's getting 4+ catches, a 100 or so yards, and a TD in atleast 3 out of 4 games right now, sooner or later, his attitude will more than likely become a clubhouse issue for a team.

    And believe me when I say that I think that when's he "happy" there is no better deep threat wide receiver in the game today (and one could make an arguement for ever) based on his ability to both make the play and also take a hit and get right back up. The problem is though that the mind/attitude of an "unhappy" Randy Moss isn't something that too many coaches want to deal with (on top of their usual few prima donna's in their clubhouse)

    the kink in it all is whether or not a team thinks economically makes sense to pay 3.5 million for his services for the remainder of the season and if he's the missing piece to a deep playoff run. Some say Washington might go for him. Some say even Dallas just to add something to fill those 100K seats.

    If I were a GM, I'd say we want you, but won't claim you off waivers. We'll pay you the prorated vet mim of 500K to get you through the season and let the Vikings pay your other half of your guaranteed salary.

    We'll see by 4PM if anyone claims him. I think because of the potential work stoppage, he very well could go unclaimed and end up playing wherever he wants to go for 500K.

    good place for Randy. About as close to home for him as a team gets. Britt, Moss, Washington and Johnson will be a tough offense to game plan against.
