Didn't realize his concussion history. I'm still wary of having only hodges as our pass catching TE after Rudolph. He presents intriguing mismatch opportunities but he's a late round pick that needs a lot of polishing.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

I thought he looked good as a receiver too.

Maybe Jermaine Wiggins good but not really like the modern day pass catchers (Gronk, Kelce, Olsen)

Is anyone else as shocked as I am that the Chiefs released Jeremy Maclin? I know he had some injuries last year, but I think he's a first-rate receiver. I wouldn't mind the Vikes taking a lookey see his way.

We already have an extremely crowded WR corps. I'll pass

Me too. Maclin doesn't bring anything special that we don't already have.

Allen Barbre has been released by the Eagles. I think the Vikes should take a good look at him. He majors at guard, but can fill in pretty well at tackle as well.

He was not released. He was traded to the Broncos.

Well, it went down in a strange way. He was cut, then he was traded by the Eagles. How do you do that?
