When the Vikings announced last Monday that a tentative agreement had been reached to sell the Vikings to Reggie Fowler, it was hoped that the non-stop rumor mongering surrounding Randy Moss would stop.
After all, if Red McCombs was little more than a lame duck awaiting league approval of Fowler's bid, there's no way he would make a blockbuster trade of Moss. That would be the responsibility of Fowler.
But, that hasn't stopped the trade winds from blowing their sour stench once again. This time it's the Cowboys who are the team du jour that could be the landing spot for Moss. It would be ironic if there was any truth to this one, because Moss had been assured by Jerry Jones that he would be drafted by the Cowboys in 1998 and, when their turn came up, they passed.
This proposed deal would include the Cowboys' two first-round picks -- Nos. 11 and 20 -- and a defensive starter as yet unnamed for Moss. However, with the Vikings sale leaving all decisions in limbo, don't expect to hear any response from Winter Park -- or any confirmation from the Cowboys' side (unless of course, you consider another newspaper columnist chiming in to be confirmation).
Will the Moss Rumors Never Die?
