If true, it puts a period on Moss' bizarre second stint with the Vikings. After telling Viking fans his return would be a fun ride, Moss disappointed on the field and allegedly offended off of it. Despite Brad Childress telling his team in a meeting that Moss would be waived, he remained on the roster at the end of Monday. Childress confirmed that while Moss had not officially been waived, the move would come.
That came a day after a bizarre press conference following the Vikings' loss to Moss' last team, the Patriots. Moss took thinly-veiled shots at the Vikings and Childress while praising the Patriots and his former coach Bill Belichick. He stayed behind in Boston after the game while the Vikings traveled back to Minnesota.
At his Monday press conference before the news of Moss' release broke, when asked if he regretted acquiring Moss, Childress said, "Not at present, I don't, no."
There is a reported divide within the entire Vikings organization about whether to waive Moss, with Childress waving the ax and owner Zygi Wilf and receiver Percy Harvin upset with releasing the future Hall of Famer.
Teams now have 24 hours to place a waiver claim for Moss, and the team with the highest waiver priority will be awarded his services. The Bills have the league's highest waiver priority. It's believed there will be many teams, including the Patriots, interested in snagging Moss off the waiver wire.
