Eight years ago, the Vikings traded receiver Randy Moss to the Raiders for a first-round pick, a seventh-round pick, and linebacker Napoloeon Harris.
Now, the Vikings have parlayed Percy Harvin into a first-rounder, a seventh-rounder, and a mid-round selection in 2014, according to Jay Glazer of FOX.
The first-rounder this time around is 18 spots lower. In 2005, the Vikings wasted the seventh overall selection on Troy Williamson, a speed receiver who had the speed but had lots of trouble with the receiving. Lots of trouble.
Moss and Harvin were teammates for a few weeks in 2010, after the Vikings gave up a third-rounder to get Moss back. Some believe that their brief time together helped poison Percy against the purple.
Now that Percy is in Seattle, it’ll be interesting to see whether Moss gets interested in jumping from the 49ers to the Seahawks.
