Bucs Pursuing Mewelde Moore?

TAMPA – Much to the Bucs’ chagrin, the Minnesota Vikings have apparently come to their senses.
They’re no longer talking about a deal that would send tackle Bryant McKinnie and/or running back Chester Taylor to the Bucs. The two teams are still talking trade, however.
The deal on the table now, according to what we’re hearing, is for backup running back Mewelde Moore. As you might expect, though, the two sides are haggling over what the Bucs would give up.
The Bucs have supposedly offered a sixth-round draft pick. The Vikings are holding out for a first-day pick. If the deal goes down, look for Tampa to surrender something like a fourth or fifth.
Obviously this is not a blockbuster type of deal but Moore would give the Bucs some depth at running back, where they’ve lost Cadillac Williams for the season to torn patellar tendon injury.
Moore has run the ball 254 times for 1,243 yards in his career and also has 116 pass receptions for 1,093 yards. He’s only played in two games this year, but he had 10 carries for 71 yards and six receptions for 48 yards in those games.
