That's pretty cool. I've only been to that forum a handful of times but things can get pretty rough over there, glad to hear he has thick skin.

Richard Sherman is on the trade block...anyone interested? Would you give up a 2nd this year and 2nd next year to get him? He has 2 years left on his contract.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Nope. I would focus on getting Rhodes inked to a long term deal. He and Waynes will make a good tandem I think. We have enough invested in the corner position, I don't think the Vikings have the luxury to give up two 2nds for Sherman (plus pay his contract).

I agree. Maybe if they still had their first rounder, but you'd be going into this draft without a pick in the first two rounds. Not a good move when you desperately need OL and WR help.

I'd want nothing to do with Sherman. We don't need him and I was never a fan of his to begin with.

Why aren't you a fan. It's tempting to bring in that level of talent but not realistic as the cost to do so would cripple the team. We already have a QB problem that I doubt the GMs planned for. As a result, we are going to lose a couple of pretty good players in the next few years.

Old friend John Sullivan signed with the #Rams, who are obviously trying to start the world's oldest offensive line.

Agree.....would be a huge mistake imho. Need to concentrate on the OL, DT, QB, LB.....too many other needs

Old man strength is a real thing. Assuming they are healthy, I don't think its a bad strategy for building an OL!

He's a big mouth. Getting old. No need for him. Cost too much. Anything else?

And we have a QB problem? And who are we losing??
