Rumor has it the Minnesota Vikings have already let receiver Randy Moss go. That’s one less hurdle for our Cardinals this weekend! I think our boys should send inappropriate cellphone pictures to Brett Favre. That should clinch it for us!

The Minnesota Vikings have waived receiver Randy Moss.
Linebacker Ben Leber says coach Brad Childress informed the team that Moss had been let go during a team meeting Monday afternoon.
The NFL Network first reported the Vikings waived Moss, but team officials have not confirmed the news.
The Vikings’ opponent Sunday in Minneapolis will be the Arizona Cardinals. Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes, on not having to face Moss this week, said: “I’m not heartbroken.”
Moss had one catch for 8 yards in a loss to the Patriots, In Sunday night’s postgame news conference, he expressed admiration for the Patriots and criticized Vikings coaching.
Childress said earlier Monday that Moss was staying back in the Boston area after the game to spend time with family. Childress said he did not regret acquiring him “at the moment.”
Childress did not mention the roster move during his news conference.
The Vikings acquired Moss from the Patriots a month ago for a third-round draft pick. He played in four games for the Vikings and had 13 catches for 174 yards and two touchdowns.
