Do you recall when the Green Bay Packers were interested in acquiring receiver Randy Moss?
Moss had just spent two seasons with the Oakland Raiders. The Packers seemed to become interested in trading for the former Minnesota Vikings star because Brett Favre wanted them to. In fact, Favre was even willing to give up some of his salary so the Packers could get Moss.
It never happened. The New England Patriots ended up flipping a fourth-round pick for Moss. He gave them three 1,ooo-yard seasons.
Favre was ticked. We all blasted general manager Ted Thompson.
Why didn’t the trade happen? Moss says it was because the Packers didn’t want to make Donald Driver unhappy.
Moss and Favre together would have been a show.
To think we were robbed of that because the Packers were afraid of hurting Donald Driver’s feelings. One of those guys is in the Hall of Fame. One of those guys won’t be. It should be obvious which one should be paid more. Not to Ted, though.
