No way, no how he gets traded. Any team that would want him would try to hold the Vikings over a barrel (I predict an offer of 3rd and 4th round picks). Minnesota says no way, we want a Hershcel-like deal. No trade happens, all is lovey-dovey in Viking-land at the start of next season.

He is so gone.
1. He wants out and is tired of being the scapegoat for all that goes wrong in Minnyland.
2. He has worn out his welcome in Minnyland
3. He knows there is no way this team ever gets to the Super Bowl as is.
I really see Baltimore stepping up and making a move for him. It would be a good fit there and it would help there offense greatly. Plus Lewis and Ed Reed would keep him in line.
As for Minnesota, they can take the savings they make from trading Moss and use it in free agency. They can load up on defense and make a move for a WR (Buress, Housmanzdaheh, Mason) to go along with Robinson, Burelson, Campbell and Wiggins (TE).
It is a move the Vikings have to make, IF they get enough back. If they get low balled then he will be back.

The Ravens are probably desperate enough for a receiver to give the Viks close to what they want. I get the impression Moss is pretty much in a minority of one in the Vikings dressing room after the Redksins game so they might be pretty desperate to shed him. Having said that the Ravens draft pick won't be so high. Maybe they'll give up one of their plethora of LB's plus mid-round pick.

Originally posted by Zeruel I don't really know what his agents did, but I know the Postons can play hardball.
The Postons and Arington are/were(?) trying to sue the Skins saying they owe Arrinton an additional 6.5mil(?) roster bonus that they left out of the final contract without informing Arrington or the Postons.
The whole thing left a bitter taste in the Skins mouth's. I believe it lead to Arrington firing the Postons for not properly reviewing the contract before giving it to him to sign. And he may have decided not to sue, I can't remember for sure.
