    The latest rumors around the cooler and on Sportscenter claim that Randy Moss is in New England as of this posting and is expected to be officially announced later today as part of a deal sending him to the Patriots and the Raiders receiving a 4th round pick.

    More news as it comes.

    How much more dangerous can the Patriots' offense get? Now it seems Brady will be throwing to Moss! I can't wait for the season to start now, I'm thrilled to see this.

    ALAMEDA, Calif. (April 29, 2007) -- The Oakland Raiders cut ties with Randy Moss after two unproductive seasons, sending the former Pro Bowl receiver to the New England Patriots for a fourth-round draft pick.
    Moss was disgruntled for most of his two seasons in Oakland, and said frequently last season he thought he'd be better off with another team. He wanted to be dealt either to New England or Green Bay and got his wish.
    "We felt this was the best scenario for both the Raiders and Randy," Oakland coach Lane Kiffin said. "We wish him nothing but the best."
    With the Patriots, Moss will be teamed with three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady, who now has plenty of talented receivers to throw to on offense. New England has already added three other wide receivers this offseason: Wes Welker in a trade with Miami, and Donte' Stallworth and Kelley Washington as free agents.

    Personally I think this is a dumb move by the Raiders, they just drafted their Quarterback of the future and they trade there best Wide Receiver, I am not 100% sure about this, but I have a feeling that Russell will be the number 1 at the start of the season, if he is then he won't have a big time wide receiver to pass the ball too, and Russell can throw the ball 70+ yards, and Moss loves to go deep, so they would be a good combo.

    Great pick up by the Pats.

    The Patriots are going to be a vicious team again! I hope Moss can keep himself under control though, Belichick is not the kind of guy to piss off.

    A lot of coaches in the NFL you don't want to piss off, he's been a trouble player in the past, and his ways won't change just because he'll be playing for Bilichick. Just look at Owens for example, Parcell is probably the last coach you want to get mad and such, but T.O didnt change his ways, and I don't think that Moss will change either. But I personally think he's going to behave himself because hes going to play for a team that will contend for the NFL Championship.

    Moss plays when he wants to play.

    He didnt want to play in Oakland he will play in N.E. and play well.

    I would like to see him step his game up after two mediocre seasons.

    But I hate New England....

    C'mon guys. Were talking about a team that is achieving dynasty status through building a team instead of puting together the highest paid collection of "me" superstars. Moss is a locker room cancer, always has been and always will be. All that talent and instead of elevating the play of those around him, he manages to have the opposite effect. Mark my words guys, this will spell the end of Patriot dominance for a long time.

    I hear that every year. Never see it happen but I hear it at the beginning of every offseason.
