The New England Patriots are in talks to trade wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings, FoxSports.com reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed sources.
The deal is being held up because Moss would have to sign an extension with the Vikings, according to the report. Contract talks have not even begun, a league source told Profootballtalk.com Tuesday night.
A player source confirmed to ESPN Senior NFL Analyst Chris Mortensen that the teams are talking and are trying to get a deal done.
“I don’t know if there have been any discussions, but I can confirm that we haven’t traded Randy Moss,” Patriots vice president of media relations Stacey James told ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss.
