My Gut: Randy Stays

I know the trade is old news, but my gut tells me the Vikings don't pull the trigger on this one. Why? Well, some things don't seem right. I don't think it happens because the Vikings can't seriously be willing to give away Randy for next to nothing. Secondly, rumors out of Oakland are that Napolean Harris is not part of the deal but Ray Buchanan.

All that plus the Raiders' cap problem lead to 'no deal.' It's really that simply. No inside scoop, no anonymous source, just raw probably-wrong instinct. Is my gut wrong? Well, it won't take long to find out: The 2005 season begins tomorrow.
