The Vikings and Patriots both posted items on their websites that the teams have agreed to a trade that will send wide receiver Randy Moss back to Minnesota for a third-round pick in 2011. The Vikings also will receive the Patriots' seventh-round pick in 2012.
Vikings coach Brad Childress will hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Winter Park and Moss will address the media after Thursday's practice.
"We feel very good about the opportunity to add a player of Randy Moss' caliber to this football team, Childress said in a statement released by the Vikings. “He is a tremendous competitor and was an integral member of the Vikings organization from 1998-2004. Once again, ownership was completely supportive of our efforts to add a valuable football player to our team. I know the entire organization is thrilled to welcome him back to the Twin Cities and look forward to his contributions."
