EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Brad Childress calls the acquisition of receiver Randy Moss "a poor decision."
The Vikings coach addressed the media Wednesday, two days after he decided to cut the Rand native and former Marshall star less than a month into his second stint in Minnesota.
Childress declined to answer repeated questions about the specifics of the decision, including the motives behind it and who he consulted before placing him on waivers.
Moss hit the waiver wire Tuesday after catching 13 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns in four games with the Vikings. They lost three of those four games.
Childress says, "When it's not right, you need to make it right."
The Vikings are 2-5 heading into Sunday's game against Arizona.
