Moss traded to Raiders

Apparently Randy Moss has been traded by the Minnesota Vikings to Oakland for a linebacker and draft choices. I'm not making any guesses as to how good a trade this is, or how the Vikings must have been really motivated to get rid of Moss. (his travails have been well-covered in the local and national press) My question is, who is the driving force behind the trade? Technically Red McCombs still owns the team, although he has accepted a bid from Reggie Fowler to purchase the Vikings. Trading Moss is a major change to the makeup of the team that Fowler bought, so is it possible that trading Moss was something Fowler wanted to do?
