Randy Moss, never one to hold his tongue when he has a strong opinion, isn't pleased with the Minnesota Vikings.
Moss, now a Fox Sports 1 analyst, said it was disrespectful for his former team to give his old jersey number, No. 84, to Cordarrelle Patterson.
“That’s disrespectful to give a rookie my number,” Moss said. “I don’t really believe in numbers, but from a professional standpoint, I did make that number. He hasn’t proven anything yet but hey what can I say? I’m just Randy Moss sitting here in the studio.”
While Moss is right in that he did "make" that number (for the Vikings at least), it's a little ridiculous to claim that the Vikings shouldn't give his number to another player. It's not like the jersey is retired, plus Moss should be proud that Patterson is wearing his former number. The first-round pick has shown lots of potential and might be an important contributor for Minnesota.
