Head coach Brad Childress told the team in a meeting that they waived Moss as Moss did not go back with the team to Minnesota. Moss was not in the meeting.
Moss had one catch for 8 yards in a loss to the Patriots. In Sunday night’s postgame news conference, he expressed admiration for the Patriots and criticized Vikings coaching.
Childress said earlier Monday that Moss was staying back in the Boston area after the game to spend time with family. Childress said he did not regret acquiring him “at the moment.”
Childress did not mention the roster move during his news conference.
The Vikings acquired Moss from the Patriots a month ago for a third-round draft pick. He played in four games for the Vikings and had 13 catches for 174 yards and two touchdowns.
