    I think its clear what they did here. They are trading a draft pick(s) and only a draft pick(s) for Moss, hence needed to clear a roster spot, so instead of cutting someone they traded someone from the deepest position on our roster and got a draft pick.
    Yeah... what he said!

    Unfortunately that may mean BB is stillgonna be with us.

    I don't think anyone would want Berrian's contract anyway--especially a team that sent a player like Richard Seymour packing because they didn't want to fork over a new contract.

    I'm not sure why they make this move. While he's not a starter he was in the rotation and even had a sack against the Saints(one of only 4 sacks by the Vikings).

    Though now that I look it shows that he wasn't active for the Lions game. Are they just trading him to open up a roster spot for another reciever?

    Anyhow best of luck to him in cleveland.

    It wasn't to make roster space for Moss.

    Re: Vikings trade Jayme Mitchell

    Mitchell has been a nice surprise, overperforming expectations every year but the one he got hurt. A good piece of our dominant DLine rotation who not only got occaisional pressure, but was solid vs. the run as well. I'm kinda bummed we let him go, but as pointed out, the DL is our deepest position and somebody had to go to open a spot for Moss...and we got something in return.

    I think we're seeing more 2012 picks in trades cuz teams are preparing for a work stoppage in 2011...why pay an extra draft pick not to play?

    Good Luck to Jayme in CLE!! But, better luck to Moss and the Vikes!!! SKOL!!

    however: Mitchell and a third for Moss and a late pick.

    Steal!
