Can you believe it? Whoever picks him up has to pay him back-salary for the first half of the season (lol)... Bills get first dibs on him followed by every other team in order of worst records (Pats would be the very last team to get a shot at him). Obviously someone is going to grab him... Any guesses on who will?

He would be a good fit in Baltimore, Miami, Washington, Pittsburg he really will be a good fit anywhere because Moss can actually still play the game really well. I am just naming teams that has a quarterback with a rocket arm for Randy

I hope the Niners pick him up

I would put my money on that one... horrific record, lots of money... although I have no idea who their QB is so he must not be good. Gore, crabtree, moss, and davis would make a formidable offense

WOW!!!

Cannot believe it!

I don't believe they gave a reason yet. You think they would give such a proven wr more than one game to make the cut...

Apparently as of tonight he still isn't officially waived. Paperwork could be lagging.

Or Chilly could be going solo, begging for a firing.

One things for sure.... he won't be going to the Lions :(

No way Moss would want to play on a team with Stafford and Calvin Johnson.

1. Stafford's arm sucks
2. Calvin Johnson is dedicated as the 1 reciever... Moss will NOT go 2 receiver

although it would be quite wonderful to have moss... it won't happen :(

Since when does Moss have a shred of discretion in the matter? If he doesn't like the Lions he can do what Barry Sanders did... Otherwise he is under contract and the rules are clear that the teams with the worst records will take him if they want him. The Lions surely, however, are not going to be interested in paying him retroactively while they are trying to slowly build their fledgling team.

How exactly did the Vikings release Moss? Was it on wavers?

IT does matter, the lions even if they did want him, If Moss openly says he does not want to be a Lion, than the lions will just not sign him. There is no point in signing a guy who will just cause problems in the locker room.

I suppose you're right about that part of it. The way he is making an as5 out of himself, I wonder if anyone is going to want to deal with him! A team may be desperate for a wr, but they aren't going to pay that money and then risk having him turn diva again.

Like I said the Pats will only get a shot at him if all all other teams pass him by.

That's simply, all he has to say is "if you sign me, i'll drop every pass you throw to me." until he gets to the Pats.

UPDATE: Apparently Moss made a spectacle out of himself and, after a respected Italian restaurant was hired to cater out the locker room, exclaimed loudly that he "wouldn't feed this sh_t to my dog" and humiliated his caterers like a spoiled brat. Supposedly that was the main factor that contributed to his firing...

Yeah, I heard that too, except the catering was apparently donated by a decent local place and he kept roaring on about how it looked like crap, etc. In his defense, I'd HATE to get Italian food in Minnesota ;) That said, yes, he does seem like a spoiled lil brat. He fits in PERFECTLY with Brady and the Pats.

The Vikings officially placed Randy Moss on waivers Tuesday. Teams have until Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET to claim him. Waiver claims are made in inverse order of the current standings, so Buffalo, the team with the worst record in the league, has the first shot to claim Moss. A team can claim him and pick up the final year of a contract that pays him $6.4 million a year. If no one claims him, the Vikings owe him the remaining $3.388 million of his deal and he's available for about $450,000, with Moss picking the team he would like to join.

Here is John Clayton's assessment of possible landing spots for Moss, as well as a team-by-team look from ESPN.com's NFL Blog Network:

AFC EAST
New England Patriots

They're 32nd in the order, so there's no point in putting in a claim. If the other 31 teams pass on Moss, the Patriots can re-sign him for significantly less than his current contract would pay.

New York Jets

They would seem unlikely as a landing spot because of a loaded receiving corps with Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes, Jerricho Cotchery and tight end Dustin Keller. But they're coming off a game with nine drops and could put in a claim to prevent Moss from returning to the Patriots.

Miami Dolphins

They traded for Brandon Marshall over the offseason, but they're struggling for touchdowns and could use a spark after kicking 10 field goals the past two weeks.

Buffalo Bills

There would seem to be no point to adding a malcontent with a big contract to a team out of the playoff hunt, but the Bills have pole position in the waiver order and can render the rest of the process moot if owner Ralph Wilson gets impulsive.

-- Tim Graham

AFC NORTH
Cincinnati Bengals

Although the trio of Chad Ochocinco, Terrell Owens and Randy Moss would generate a buzz, the Bengals are already out of the playoff hunt. At 2-5, Cincinnati would have to go 8-1 in its last nine games to have a legit shot at the playoffs.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens believe in the right player for the right price, and the going rate for Moss is too high for Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Receiver is not a position of need and Moss doesn't fit the culture in Pittsburgh. The Steelers rarely make big-money moves during the season.

Cleveland Browns

Strictly from a talent standpoint, the Browns are the division team that can use Moss the most. The Browns have the NFL's worst receiving corps; it lacks experience and talent.

-- James Walker

AFC SOUTH
Houston Texans

It would be uncharacteristic to shake up the locker room with a controversial personality.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts generally do not bring in high-profile outsiders, and when healthy they are well stocked at receiver.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars can always use another playmaker, but Moss doesn't come cheap and David Garrard doesn't throw well deep.

Tennessee Titans

They passed on him in the 1998 draft and it would be a surprise if they brought him in now.

-- Paul Kuharsky

AFC WEST
San Diego Chargers

No receiving group in the NFL is as banged up as San Diego's unit. But I still don't think this is a fit. Moss is not a Chargers-type player. Plus, San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers threw for 305 yards Sunday despite playing without his top four receivers.

Denver Broncos

The Broncos are 2-6 and really don't need any more potential headaches. Plus, the passing game is a bright spot in Denver. Moss really wouldn't make a huge impact.

Oakland Raiders

There are some members of Raider Nation who want Oakland to claim Moss, if only to block him from going to first-place Kansas City, which visits Oakland on Sunday. Moss would give the banged-up Oakland receiving crew a veteran presence.

Kansas City Chiefs

This is a good fit on paper. He played for Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli in New England, and Moss and Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel worked well together in New England in 2008. Moss would definitely give the Chiefs' offense an added dimension.

-- Bill Williamson

NFC EAST
Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones has apologized to Randy Moss for not drafting him in 1998, but the Cowboys don't have any openings at wide receiver right now. Miles Austin and Dez Bryant are the stars and Roy Williams is paid handsomely.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are stacked at receiver with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant. There's no place for another receiver.

New York Giants

This would make no sense with the Giants rolling with Hakeem Nicks, Steve Smith and Mario Manningham.

Washington Redskins

Mike Shanahan would have a better shot at getting Moss to produce on a weekly basis, but I'm not sure it's worth the risk. You've already had the Albert Haynesworth saga, followed by the Donovan McNabb benching. Isn't that enough drama for one half of the season?

-- Matt Mosley

NFC NORTH
Chicago Bears

The Bears haven't shown interest in any available veteran receivers over the past two years, and it's hard to imagine that changing now.

Detroit Lions

Moss wouldn't seem to fit the profile for a team building for the long term.

Green Bay Packers

General manager Ted Thompson almost never adds established veteran players. He prefers to develop his own starters via the draft.

Minnesota Vikings

Not happening.

-- Kevin Seifert

NFC SOUTH
New Orleans Saints

New Orleans is the one NFC South team I could possibly see having an interest in Moss. The Saints have shown a willingness to let guys revive their careers in New Orleans (see Jeremy Shockey and Jonathan Vilma) in the past. Drew Brees owns that locker room and is powerful enough that he wouldn't be pushed around by Moss.

Atlanta Falcons

It might be a little tempting to think about the possibility of giving Matt Ryan one more toy that could truly put the Falcons over the top. But the Falcons already have a great No. 1 receiver in Roddy White and a nice role player in Michael Jenkins.

Carolina Panthers

They might get a shot to claim Moss off waivers, but there's no way the Panthers would touch his contract. They're not spending money and they're firmly committed to their youth movement.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Much like the Panthers, the Bucs aren't spending money and they're in a youth movement. In fact, they're already seeing the benefits of that youth movement with their young wide receivers emerging.

-- Pat Yasinskas

NFC WEST
Arizona Cardinals

Larry Fitzgerald grew up around Moss in Minnesota and knows him well. Moss' addition would allow Steve Breaston to work from the slot, giving the Cardinals quite an arsenal.

San Francisco 49ers

Moss would fit very well opposite Michael Crabtree, particularly with Vernon Davis attracting so much attention. But the 49ers have enough headaches this season without adding another one.

Seattle Seahawks

Moss would give the Seahawks something they can't get from any of their other receivers. But if Bill Belichick decided Moss wasn't worth the trouble, Moss probably isn't worth the trouble.

St. Louis Rams

The Rams finally have a good thing going. They don't need a potential malcontent setting a poor example for young receivers and the rest of the team.

Order based on schedule:

1. Buffalo Bills
2. Carolina Panthers
3. Dallas Cowboys
4. San Francisco
5. Denver Broncos
6. Detroit Lions
7. Minnesota Vikings
8. Cincinnati Bengals
9. Cleveland Browns
10. San Diego Chargers
11. Arizona Cardinals
12. Jacksonville Jaguars
13. St. Louis Rams
14. Oakland Raiders
15. Washington Redskins
16. Seattle Seahawks
17. Chicago Bears
18. Miami Dolphins
19. Philadelphia Eagles
20. Green Bay Packers
21. New Orleans Saints
22. Tennessee Titans
23. Houston Texans
24. Indianapolis Colts
25. Kansas City Chiefs
26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
27. New York Giants
