Is Moss the Ravens' missing link?
- There is no denying what Terrell Owens did for the Philadelphia Eagles this season, regardless of them winning the NFC championship game with Owens relegated to cheerleader status.
Physically, Owens and Moss are the two most gifted receivers in the NFL, although the Texans' Andre Johnson is closing the gap.
Owens was perceived as trouble in San Francisco, a high-maintenance player at the very least.
Moss has all but worn out his welcome in Minnesota. A team source says there is a 60-40 chance Moss will be traded but only for a handsome price. What does that mean? Two first-round picks? A first-rounder and a defensive starter?
That said, any trade would ultimately have to be signed off by the Vikings owner, whether that's Red McCombs or somebody else. (I am now told, quite reliably, that reports of an imminent sale are greatly exaggerated.) McCombs likes Moss and he thinks he is well-liked in the locker room. He already has invested mega-millions into the receiver, so he would have to be convinced trading Moss would make the team better.
The Vikings did call a few teams last offseason to get a feel for a Moss trade market and they will be more aggressive this time around.
