I know they've talked about it for a while, but it looks like it's going to happen.
The question is: will he moon his own fans after scoring?

Report: Packers to trade for Moss




The Green Bay Packers are close to completing a trade that would send backup quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a draft pick to the Oakland Raiders for receiver Randy Moss, another player and a conditional draft pick, the Boston Herald reported today, quoting a source in Wisconsin.

Ted Thompson, the Packers' general manager, was said to be traveling and unavailable for comment at mid-morning.

Moss has agreed to restructure his contract, which is to pay him $20 million in base salary over the next two years, the source told the Herald's Michael Felger.

The trade, which reportedly could be announced as soon as Friday, is structured this way, the source told the Herald:

The Packers would get Moss, tight end Courtney Anderson and a conditional pick in the 2009 draft that would be based on how well Rodgers plays for the Raiders in 2007 and 2008.

The Raiders would get Rodgers and a seventh-round pick in 2008.

1. I guess this means the rumors are true that Rodgers was nothing close to what they had hoped he would be.

2. Is Oakland really going to think about starting him if this goes down? I mean are they not going to draft a QB?

3. Calvin Johnson is gonna get more money but I'm thinking he is not happy about this. Or at least I wouldn't be.

Well, given that it's still just a rumor, I'm not going out to buy a Moss jersey just yet (not that I would, anyway). Rodgers is still just a clipboard guy for the Packers. Brett's still around, and could still be around for another 3 years (you never know). If he has an opportunity to go somewhere else via trade, I'd imagine the ego in him (or any pro athlete) would welcome the challenge of being THE GUY.

I still say this doesn't happen. It's not Thompson's MO to go out and bring in a big money guy, as opposed to paying his own guys from within. Do we need a deep threat? Yes. Is Moss a deep threat? I don't know anymore.

By the way, Packer fans loved Jim McMahon when he was here -- we'd adapt pretty quick to having Moss on the team. It's not like we've never had troublemakers here before (Koren Robinson, James Lofton, Mossy Cade, Eddie Lee Ivery, Paul Hornung and Max McGee).

Having Moss run a post pattern 15 times a game with Favre tossing the ball, might get enough big plays to help the Packers compete. It would also mean Brett would stay around forever.

Update: the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quotes unnamed sources saying that the previous report is false.

"In the last few days, however, other NFL sources said that Thompson is inclined just to wait out Davis with the expectation that the Raiders either will release Moss or trade him to Green Bay for a mid-to-late round draft choice."

True, there's no way he goes back to Oakland, and there hasn't seem to be much interest from any other teams.

I for one hope it doesn't happen. I'm not sure Moss is the same player he once was. His catch % has fallen from 65% in 2003, down to 57%, down to 48%, down to 43% last year. And maybe all of it is due to bad QBs. But maybe it isn't.

Well, by Moss's own admission, he kind of stopped caring at times last season, so how much of whatever's his fault can be reversed by playing with an inspiring team (and QB)?

Eh, Moss in Green Bay isn't that big of a deal. Now if say, Marvin Harrison, Chad Johnson or Steve Smith (the latter being characters in their own right, but they still play with heart), guys who are absolutely integral in their team's performance move, I think it'll have more impact on the league.

Crazy as this sounds, but Joe Horn leaving New Orleans creates more waves than anything about Randy Moss.



Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

See, that's it exactly. Why would anyone want a guy who could just quit on you at any moment? Jerry Rice never quit. That's why he's the GOAT.

I'm just expecting this to backfire on the Packers. Favre will end up throwing one of his lame ducks, or not throw to Moss enough (GB has been in the top 5 in average number of receivers to have a catch per game every year since 2000), and it'll be T-O part 2.

I don't care about Randy Moss being a Packer because he'll quit on the team. I care because he's pretty much the epitome of the Vikings. I hope he stays far far away.

As I recall, after we won the Grey Cup, all the American teams were forced to fold or relocate to Canadian cities because the CFL was ending their "experiment." The Baltimore CFL Colts/Stallions are the current Montreal team, I think.
