The Vikings waived Randy Moss. Who's the favorite to land him by Tuesday, 4 Eastern? Here's my short list:
New England Patriots
This is obvious. I don't think the Patriots will put in a claim for Moss because they're last on the list. If no one claims Moss, they can just sign him without paying him the $3.38 million he's owed for the rest of the year.
Mayhem has broken loose in Washington, where Mike Shanahan thinks Rex Grossman has a better chance of leading his team to victory than Donovan McNabb. McNabb needs a downfield threat to go along with Santana Moss, and Daniel Snyder loves bringing in aging former Pro Bowlers.
This Chicago front office will be fired if the team doesn't make the playoffs. They could panic and take a shot on Moss.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City needs a wideout across from Dwayne Bowe. Both Scott Pioli and Matt Cassel are familiar with Moss.
Miami Dolphins and New York Jets
Neither Miami nor New York needs a receiver, but both teams might be willing to spend $3.38 million to keep arch rival New England from re-claiming Moss. Even if Moss doesn't play a single down for them, the move could be worth it if it keeps the Patriots from advancing deep into the playoffs.
