      It would be nice to bring moss back but I bet he doesnt want to come back to Minnesota. Plus The Patriots already have a verbal agreement with Moss already and they have a contract ready for him to sign on the 29th.

      I like Porter because he is a proven Veteran. He can catch the ball and help out a Young QB. I personally don't think Berrian is going anywhere. They be crazy to let him go. Johnson Im alright with but what has he done? He is a 3rd Receiver behind One of the Best Duo's in the league. Which helps him out but I dont know how he will do as a #1. Hackett I like but He was injured last year. I just dont know.

          He has said he wanted to retire as a Viking - maybe he still does? We could use a deep threat, we can open the bank, and he's smart enough to appreciate what having Peterson on the same side would mean.

          Plus The Patriots already have a verbal agreement with Moss already and they have a contract ready for him to sign on the 29th.
          Verbal ain't binding. Didn't Hutch have a verbal agreement with Seattle? And I'm not too sure Moss really would want to stay in New England.

          All that being said, yeah, it's a dream and why would he leave New England. But still, a man can dream.

          I like Bryant Johnson's talent, but it is hard to go from being a third-stringer up to first-string, the talent of corners messes with most of the players who make that leap; you could replace Bryant Johnson with D.J. Hackett and I'd say the same thing. I'm not high on Berrian and I doubt Chicago will let him go also, and Porter Could be good, but he Could be a headcase that brings down Sidney. I really don't know if there's a free agent receiver we should invest in and make another BobbyWade mistake.

          This is a deep draft for receivers, they should definately take one of the fifteen or so I wouldn't mind them taking, that's all I know.

            I think it would be a great move to bring in a receiver like berrian. With williamson maybe leaving we could use a burner that can actually catch.

              I thought you guys Might wanted to see this... its from vikings.scout.com



              SUNDAY NOTES
              * There are rumors that the Vikings might make a strong push to sign Bengals safety Madieu Williams when free agency begins Saturday morning.

              * Another name that has cropped up and been linked to interest from the Vikings is Dolphins quarterback Cleo Lemon, who Rick Spielman has some personal knowledge of.

              * The Vikings haven’t made any progress in trading wide receiver Troy Williamson. When word got out that the Vikings were shopping Williamson, his agent said between eight and 10 teams had expressed an interest. His agent, David Carter, left Indianapolis to attend a wedding Saturday, but is expected back in Indy today and there is the belief that a trade might be worked out before the Combine ends on Tuesday.

              * If the Vikings have an interest in Bernard Berrian, they are not alone. Word coming out of Cleveland is that the Browns are prepared to make a big push for Berrian if he makes it to free agency and doesn’t re-sign with the Bears, who recently released veteran Muhsin Muhammad.

              * The Vikings will let safety Mike Doss test free agency before making any offer to have him remain with the team.

                Sometimes you canít believe everything you read.

                There have been published reports that the Vikings are somewhere between $15-17 million under the 2008 salary cap, but in reality, you can nearly double that amount by the time free agency begins midnight Friday night.

                Thanks to creative bookkeeping that includes several contract provisions for bonuses that arenít going to be met, such as bonuses for players like Pat Williams to have a specific number of special teams tackles (Big Pat doesnít play on special teams), the Vikings will have approximately $30 million to spend under the $116 million salary cap.

                Last year, believing the free agent talent and the big spike in the salary cap would force teams to overspend, the Vikings didnít make much of a splash Ė signing WR Bobby Wade, TE Visanthe Shiancoe, LB Vinny Ciurciu and safety Mike Doss. The only player the Vikings made a big play for was wide receiver Kevin Curtis, who ended up signing with the Eagles.

                This year may be different. With the belief that the Vikings are only a key player or two away from being a legitimate playoff contender, the belief from Vice President of Player Personnel Rick Spielman is that the Vikings may well go after a blue-chip free agent or two if the money is right and the players are viewed as good fits in the Vikings' system.

                With a deeper talent pool in free agency this year, the Vikings may have been wise getting out of the bidding wars last year. With plenty of many to spend and holes

                Hmm but which blue chippers? I really don't see that many blue chip f/a's that can help us this year.

                  I'm pretty high on Madieu Williams. When he's healthy he makes a nice amount of plays and is one of the more underrated players in the league, plus he's still young. I'd say there's a pretty good chance that we do sign him, it's a good fit, and the Leslie Frazier connection doesn't hurt.

                  Berrian would be my preference at receiver. DJ Hackett would probably be second, but he has hard time staying on the field. Porter is a nice fit in the WCO, but is probably on the downside of his career and also has injury problems. Any of them would be an upgrade right now.

                    We can add Troy Williamson to the Subtractons list :)

                      I know for some odd reason things are starting to fall into place. Not that getting rid of the two biggest eye sores on the team is some revelation. Did anyone else notice in the last two games how freaking horrible Dwight Smith looked.

                        It seemed like he forgot how to tackle. Imagine if we were in a position to make the playoffs and he was missing tackles like that... Oh yeah... For some reason the first thing I think about with Dwight is how he got arrested for having sex in a stairwell.

                        Can't wait for FA to start. Building through the draft is definitely the better way to go, but we have some needs that should be addressed in FA this year (safety, receiver). No Visanthe-esque signings though.

                              Is it for sure a 6th round? Or is that still in discussion?

                                Eh you can be assured Childress will have atleast 1 F/A signing like that. He has done it every year since he has been here. 2006 Chester Taylor & Ben Leber. 2007 Bobby Wade & Visanthe Shiancoe. In 2008 it's very likely there will be another one but who is the question. Right now I'm guessing he will bring in some under the radar safety and try to make him the starter.

                                I have no clue I have read in places that it is a 6th that can escalate into a 4th or 5th(Which if true means it has to be a 2009 pick). Other places have just said that the Vikings will be getting a second day pick/6th round pick in the 2008 NFL draft. I guess we will just have to wait until friday to find out the truth.
