|AP Sources: Moss Hits the Waiver Wire
|MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Two people with knowledge of Randy Moss' status tell The Associated Press that the Minnesota Vikings have waived the receiver.
The people spoke Tuesday on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information publicly.
Vikings coach Brad Childress told his players on Monday that he intended to waive Moss. He released a statement saying he felt the move was in the best interests of the team "both in the short and long term."
Teams will have until 4 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday to place a claim on Moss. The team with the worst record will win the claim. Winless Buffalo has the first shot at him.
If Moss is not claimed, he will be free to sign a new contract with any team and the Vikings would be on the hook for rest of his salary.
