In what seemed like a very unlikely turn of events, Randy Moss is reportedly heading back to the Minnesota Vikings, the team that originally drafted him in 1998. The story has been in the process of breaking all morning and has nearly been made official.

Three thoughts instantly come to mind upon hearing this news:
1) Randy Moss was traded for a third-round draft pick? Really?
2) Maybe now Brett Favre can get back to “just having fun out there” with a now drastically improved receiving corps.
3) What does this do to Randy’s card values, especially his early cards from his first stint in Minnesota and whichever is the first set to feature him in his new (er…old?) uni?
Wonder what jersey number Randy will don?
It just goes to show: in the age of free agency, nothing is predictable. Remember when Hall of Fame athletes spent an entire career in one jersey? Me neither.
