Randy Moss traded to Patriots for a fourth-round round pick in today's draft

Sources: Moss trade to Pats has open issues remaining

By Len Pasquarelli
ESPN.com


The New England Patriots have reached a trade agreement in principle to acquire wide receiver Randy Moss from the Oakland Raiders for a fourth-round round choice in Sunday's second day of the NFL draft.

Randy Moss
Wide Receiver
Oakland Raiders

Profile
2006 SEASON STATISTICS
Rec Yds TD Avg Long YAC
42 .553. 3 13.2 51.. 127


There are still details to be completed, including Moss passing a physical examination by the Patriots' medical staff, but league sources said they expect the deal to be competed. As part of a trade, Moss would restructure and perhaps even extend his current contract, which calls for base salaries of $9.75 million in 2007 and $11.25 million in 2008.

Oakland and New England officials conducted on and off negotiations for the last several days. The Raiders, who acquired Moss from Minnesota in 2005, have been shopping the wide receiver much of the offseason.

Moss, 30, has not participated in any of the offseason conditioning sessions conducted by first-year head coach Lane Kiffin and the suspicion is that he would not show up for the start of training camp.

Acquiring the once-explosive Moss would perhaps be the defining moment of an offseason in which New England coach Bill Belichick and personnel chief Scott Pioli have worked to dramatically upgrade the team's receiving corps. New England added former Miami wideout Wes Welker in a trade and signed unrestricted free agents Donte Stallworth (Philadelphia) and Kelley Washington (Cincinnati).

In nine seasons, Moss has 676 receptions for 10,700 yards and 101 touchdowns. He is coming off a 2006 season in which he played in 11 games and registered 42 catches for 553 yards and three touchdowns, career lows in all those categories.

randy moss although great has been a total chump since his first 4 years the guy is about as bad as to the fact that he play when he wants to play is re donkolous, if they think they can take down peyton and indy let them try, but moss will most likely start drama, and i dont see belicheck wanting anypart of that

Did the Raiders did well getting rid of him and his ridiculous contract.

Moss is almost as bad as Owens. There both great athletes but could be so much better if they would just shut up and play.

I couldn't have said it any better myself. I was just thinking the exact same thing.

I dont understand this trade for OAK I thought the reason they drafted Russel was his ability to throw the ball downfield to Moss.

Great trade for NE

Stallworth and Moss will be a great combination (if Moss plays). Still can't picture Moss in a Patriot uniform.

Belicheck will put him in line. Pats had a great off season. And it wll definitely show next season. It was hard enough to go against Brady in th playoffs before but now with his WR lineup it has drove to me to favor them for a superbowl win this year.
