Where Else Would Randy Moss Be Going But The Minnesota Vikings?

Did you like it when the Vikings stomped ahead of the Rams in all the Vincent Jackson trade rumors? What about when their quarterback non-controversy dominated sports pages for the entirety of the NFL offseason? Then you'll love that they're in on Randy Moss, who is apparently willing to leave New England over the imminent end of his contract.

But Mark Clayton really has looked good, so there's that.
