Lions' Burleson on Moss: 'He's a good dude'
ALLEN PARK -- Reports on Monday were that the Vikings had released wide receiver Randy Moss. Although later in the day it was unclear if that had really happened or if coach Brad Childress had made the call on his own.
Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, who played with Moss for the Minnesota Vikings, said he was surprised.
“I don’t think Moss had any problem fitting into any locker room. When you’re that type of talent and you want the ball in your hands you make it heard. I heard that’s what happened, I don’t know why he got cut or the reasons he got cut,’’ Burleson said.
“I played with Moss he’s a good dude, he’s always like a big brother type to me.’’
Early reports were that Miami and Seattle were interested in acquiring Moss. Don’t expect to see him in a Lions uniform.
