The son of the Minnesota Vikings legend just became available.

Randy Moss will forever be remembered as one of the greatest players to ever put on the purple and gold uniform for the Minnesota Vikings.

His years in a Vikings jersey were some of the most exciting in the history of the franchise. Moss was not only one of the best receivers to ever play for Minnesota, but he is one of the best receivers to ever step foot on an NFL field.

The former Vikings pass-catcher was officially immortalized in 2018 when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Currently, Moss is continuing his work as an NFL analyst for ESPN.

Should the Minnesota Vikings be interested in the son of Randy Moss?

Heading into this year’s NFL Draft, there were some who felt Minnesota should consider selecting Moss’ son, Thaddeus Moss, a tight end who played a part in LSU winning the National Championship last season.

Despite having 15 draft picks this year, the Vikings decided to not use any of them on the younger Moss. However, Minnesota wasn’t the only team around the league who passed on the former LSU tight end.

Moss ended up going undrafted this year, but he later agreed to sign on with the Washington Football Team. Unfortunately for the son of the former Vikings great, Washington decided to waive him recently with an injury designation.

Now, 31 other teams, including Minnesota, can potentially claim the rookie tight end on the waiver wire. If he goes unclaimed, Washington can place him on injured reserve.

Even if Moss ends up on Washington’s injured reserve list, he could potentially still be released at a later time if it’s revealed that the team used a minor-injury designation on him. If he becomes available at some point this season, should the Vikings take a chance on Moss?

He has decent size for a tight end (6-foot-3, 249 pounds) and at LSU last season, he caught 47 passes for 570 yards (12.1 average) and four touchdowns.

The fact that he is the son of one of the greatest Minnesota receivers of all time certainly makes him a bit more enticing for fans of the purple and gold. However, he showed last season at LSU that he can produce against some of the best college players in the nation.
