WR Moss subject of trade talk
By wire services
Published January 21, 2005
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Cris Carter knows the significance of a fresh start. After being released by the Eagles before the 1990 season because of his drug problem, he revived his career - and remodeled his reputation - in Minnesota.
Carter believes it's time for Randy Moss to do the same.
"At this time, in the best interests of both parties, it might be in Randy's best interests to be somewhere else next season," said Carter, a mentor to Moss during Carter's last seasons in Minnesota. "I wouldn't be surprised if he has played his last game in Minnesota."
Publicly, the Vikings say trading Moss is not viable. Privately, they are curious.
"That's not even something we would even think about four days after the season," coach Mike Tice said.
SABAN IN NO RUSH: New Dolphins coach Nick Saban wants to build a foundation for long-term success rather than trying to rush a turnaround from a 4-12 season.
"There's a lot to do," Saban said Thursday, when he met with reporters for the first time since his introductory news conference. "I feel good about where we're at, where we're going, what we have to do. I don't feel overwhelmed at all."
Part of Saban's strategy will apparently be to hoard draft picks, something the Dolphins didn't do under former coach Dave Wannstedt. They have the No. 2 overall pick in April, but they're without a choice in the second or sixth rounds because of trades.
"We've made some decisions here that ... we're going to deal with," Saban said. "I think your team has to be built with the draft. Those are the only players you know you're going to have in the organization for three, four or five years. That's the stability."
