Oakland Raiders wide receiver Randy Moss said in a radio interview Thursday that he wanted to be traded to the Atlanta Falcons or Baltimore Ravens when he left the Minnesota Vikings, the site BenMaller.com reported, citing 790 The Zone in Atlanta.
But Moss said Falcons owner Arthur Blank told him he didn't want the receiver, the radio station reported.
"I want to tell every Atlanta Falcon and football fan that's listening to this what happened. When I was getting traded from Minnesota, I wanted to come and play for either the Atlanta Falcons or the Baltimore Ravens," Moss said, BenMaller.com reported.
"I wanted to play with Atlanta just for the fact of Michael Vick's elusiveness, and I wanted to play with a guy such as Ray Lewis because he's on defense and I'm on offense."
The Vikings traded Moss to the Raiders after the 2004 season. Last season with the Raiders, he caught 60 passes for 1,005 yards and eight touchdowns.
