Day 2 is underway and the Raiders have a lot going on already.
It’s looking more and more like Randy Moss will not be a Raider by the end of the day. Moss is reportedly in New England taking a physical to complete a trade with the Patriots.
Moss would get his wish to go to a contender in exchange for a fourth-round pick today. Reports also have Moss already having agreed to restructure his contract to make the trade work.
Lane Kiffin didn't sound confident yesterday Moss would be back, and it looks like he won't.
This would end two underwhelming years in Oakland for Moss. He was being booed at home by the end of last season after admitting his unhappiness caused him not to focus and drop passes.
The Raiders wanted more for Moss, but it’s hard to get a lot for a highly paid player with questionable work ethic coming off three years with injuries.
I figured all along the Raiders would get nothing more than a second day pick for Moss. I thought they’d be lucky to get a third round choice.
Any other player with Moss’ baggage and attitude would have been cut along time ago. We’ll find out later today if this deal becomes official.
If and when it does, Kiffin will have rid his locker room of one big distraction. Has Moss ever used to his full potential in Oakland?
No. But maybe a change of scenery will get Moss to focus and make him happy again.
So what are you going to do with your No. 18 jersey?
