    Patriots still get that 3rd round pick?
    The Pats get the 3rd round pick and he might end up back with the Pats.

    I've changed my mind.

    If I'm Spags I go to Bradford and say "This is your team now... do you want him or not?"

    off season waiver = last season record

    active season waiver = current season record

    Bills get first shot

    Very well said. Couldnt agree more. It comes down to is Sam comfortable with having him in the huddle and throwing to him.

    I'd be interested to see the source on this. According to Rotoworld's write-up about this news, "He's now subject to the waivers process, with any team claiming him on the hook for his $6.4 million salary prorated over the rest of the season."

    As for signing him, this unit could use a boost and he'd be an instant talent upgrade, though I don't think he'd be a good fit in these short passing scheme and his mouth might not make him appealing. I'm not going to lose sleep either way.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    I'll look it up to confirm, but my understanding of the waiver process is this:

    He's on waivers for 24 hours, at which point if a team picks him up they will cover his salary for the remainder of the year and the Vikes will be off the hook for the 2nd half of his salary. If nobody picks him up while on waivers, Vikings owe him his entire salary and he is free to sign with any team and get paid by both teams.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Can someone explain to me why he is subject to waiver claims. I thought players with 4 years experience were not subject to them, like when the Rams released Dockery in week 2 instead of Marquis Johnson.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Quoting Wikipedia...

    Waivers is a National Football League labor management procedure by which a team makes an American football player contract or NFL rights (such as NFL draft rights to an unsigned player) available to all other teams.

    During the season (starting July 4 and lasting through the regular season), each team has 24 hours to file a claim for a player that another team has made available through the system or waive the right to do so. During the offseason each team has several days to file such claims. Claiming teams are assigned the rights to or contracts via a priority system based on inverse order of winning percentage. Players that pass through waivers unclaimed become free agents. Waiver claims are irrevocable.

    According to the collective bargaining agreement, if any waiver of a veteran player who has completed the season that gives him four years of service occurs between February 1st and the trading deadline in mid October, then that player shall be considered an unrestricted free agent by termination of his contract. NFL clubs are prohibited from contacting waived players until the player has been released by the club after passing waivers. At the conclusion of the season in which they were claimed via waivers, a player with a no-trade clause in his contract may declare himself a free agent. Any other player can declare himself a free agent at the conclusion of the season subsequent to the season in which they were claimed on waivers if they remain under a claimed contract.

    A player who has been cleared waivers and become a free agent shall be immediately free to negotiate and sign a player contract with any NFL Club, and any Club shall be completely free to negotiate and sign a player contract with such player. There will be no penalty or restriction, including, but not limited to, Draft Choice Compensation between Clubs or First Refusal Rights of any kind, or any signing period.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Am I the only one wondering why the heck The Vikes would give him up so fast ? The guy was productive, cost them a bit , & Minn is in dire straits. We may not be talking locker room cancer here; more like flesh-eating bacteria.

    I don't think Devaney would go for it if the chance arises which seems unlikely with the waiver situation; his turd-o-meter is probably going off the scale on this guy. And if he were a stud TE, he might be a better fit with what The Rams are lacking most for what they are trying to do offensively,imo, & justify the risk.

    I read somewhere that Moss was pissed that Childress and one of the receivers went on the record saying he was helping them with Patriot insider info or something.

    Don't know if that is the sole reason but I'm sure it is in the mix.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Vikings would pay his contract if nobody picks him up.
    The team that picks him up is on the hook for the remainder of his contract which in this case happens at the end of the season.

    If the Rams pass on him (I'm guessing they will) I could understand why. He's shown all season he's not willing to play at a level anywhere near 100% and if the team isn't winning, he has shown a history of doing that on other teams.

    I could also see getting him in an attempt to win the NFC WEST (which is within grasp).
