BREAKING NEWS: Patriots Trade Moss

I don't even know what to say...

In one of the more lopsided trades in recent memory, the New England Patriots traded Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings for a third round draft pick. Wait, what the hell?! Yeah, you read that right. The Pats traded the 7-time Pro Bowler to the Vikings.

Now I understand that this is the last year of Moss' deal, and the Pats want to get something back for him. But a 3rd rounder? Come on. If we got Oakland's #1 for Seymour we should have gotten at least a 2nd round pick for Moss, if not more. That's just a poor job negotiating by the Patriots. Some of the rational for this is that Moss is older than Seymour was, and that the Pats already have 2 first rounders, 2 second rounders, and 2 fourth rounders in the next draft. Getting a first or second round pick means the Pats might not be able to sign all their picks, because nobody knows what the cap is going to look like after the new CBA is established.

Still, trading Randy Fucking Moss for a third rounder not alright. Even if you traded him for the best skill player in the 3rd round of the 1998 draft (the year he was drafted), you're getting Hines Ward. Who would you rather have?
