Rick Spielman knows how to shoot down a rumor. Today the Vikings GM addressed the Randy Moss talk floating around the internet, talk radio and everywhere else speculation dwells. To the surprise of no one, Spielman stated categorically that the Vikings have no interest whatsoever in bringing Moss back for a third time.
“We’ll be moving on,” Spielman said during a pre-Combine press chat. He added, “Randy was a great player but we’ll focus more on trying to get a younger team.”
That’s as blunt as it gets from an NFL exec. But why do I have a strange feeling the Moss return talk won’t be stopping?
Viking fans love Randy Moss, some in spite of the bad stuff, some because of it. The die-hard Moss sentimentalists will always want him back and will continue speculating on a return until Moss is literally unable to walk. So Spielman can shoot down the rumors all he wants. The rumors will continue and so will the Moss-love.
