Michael Griffin too. Good move since it's a 1 year deal and no risk. Same w/ Harris.
I don't know about the LBers they brought in. Boone I like a lot - I had him on the radar since before the season; that move made too much sense.

signed andre smith to a 1 year deal. i like they are really going after the oline, should be a lot of good competition and we might just end up with a great line

asiata resigned too

Kinda curious how this all works out. Loadholt, Fusco, Smith, Clemmings, Harris, Kalil, Boone, Berger, Sullivan...somewhere in there is a good offensive line I imagine, but I have no idea who will be where.

My guess is Boone is the biggest lock at LG. Kalil doesn't seem like he has pro bowl chops anymore, so I wonder if Clemmings will get a chance to compete for LT?

right now its looking like the most likely scenario but i am not exactly comfortable with it

there is always hits and misses in the first round but it seems like wr either has more than its share or they are just always high profile, and we don't exactly have a sterling record with them either

I'm always excited to draft the skill position players, it's a lot more fun than drafting offensive lineman, even if that's needed sometimes.
Looking at our track record, you can say it's mixed but the receivers we've drafted have at least been entertaining. Moss, Harvin and to some extent even Patterson have been fun to watch. The only one that was a complete waste was Williamson.

Greg Jennings wants to come back to the Vikings???? I guess I'd be ok with that on a cheap deal, just to get some veteran leadership to the young receives
