Moss: Vikings giving Patterson No. 84 is 'disrespectful'


Randy Moss can't stand that a rookie -- Cordarrelle Patterson -- is wearing No. 84 for the Vikings.

“First of all, that’s disrespectful, to give a rookie my number,” Moss said on FOX Sports 1. “I don’t really believe in numbers, but I think that from a professional standpoint, I did make that number. And for them to give him that number, he hasn’t proven anything yet. But, hey, what can I say, I’m just Randy Moss sitting here in the studio.”

Moss made his statement before the Vikings lost to the Lions. Patterson had one reception for 10 yards. He's now just 981 receptions and 15,282 yards shy of matching the career totals of Moss.

Moss didn't work as an analyst when Michael Jenkins wore No. 84 with the Vikings, but he's never said anything on record about that.
