Moore Might Be No more
With the bye for the Vikes this week. There is some trade rumors going around with many teams. A player that I have liked since his debut as a Viking is Mewelde Moore.The deal would sent him to Tampa Bay Buccaneers that are in NEED of a running back.For the deal to go though the Vikes are asking for a 1st day pick in upcoming draft. For now this deal is not a chance Bucs are willing to take a 4 year vet. With the October 16th ,trade dealine coming closer, we will see what happens. The Bucs lost there start back Cadillac Williams for the season with a right leg injury.I do not see the Vikes letting Moore slide away from them unless the 1st day pick is met. Moore is a great insurance policy. He is on his final year of his rookie contract. If he does stay with the team for the rest of the year.It is not very likely we will be back with the purple and gold next season. He will be an unrestricted free agent next season. Considering that our star rookie Adrian Peterson has his history of injury problem back in college.Chester Taylor has been injured with a hip problem for two games this season so far. That gave AP the opportunity to be the teams star back.
