I understand. I'm having that kind of week too... plus, it doesn't seem like Floyd has been a Vikings for 4 years already!


Yeah time's flying

In a very Vikings manoeuvre we win the coin toss, thus giving the Eagles 14th overall pick....and as it alternates our first pick in the second round drops to 47! :wallbang:

Are you sure it alternates?

Anyone else bummed out about our stadium killing a bunch of birds? Apparently they are conducting a 3 year assessment of the impact to birds but I hope they do something in the meantime since it's clearly already impacting birds.

Good move by us. Provides versatility and is a decent backup

Looks like we "won" (read: "Lost") the coin flip, meaning that we would have had pick #14 and ended up with pick #48 (instead of #46). Classic Vikings outcome. As long as they get their pick in on time I guess it's all good! :lol:

Source says RB Matt Asiata plans to test the market in free agency and not a high probability he returns to the #Vikings.

John Ross WR from Washington is the NFL's fastest man. 4.22 40-yard. Looked like he injured himself at the end too.

Vikings Will Meet with Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami Hurricanes

Quote:
Matt Miller of B/R reports that Miami QB Brad Kaaya has meetings scheduled with the Vikings, Cardinals, Saints, Giants, Lions, Steelers, Cowboys, and Bears.


The only reason I am posting this is because of the QB implications. I take it as a good sign the Vikings want to meet with a rookie QB. It means we might actually be taking the backup QB position seriously for once.

I don't think it means anything about Teddy Bridgewater though.

Brad Kaaya is not that good. Ughhhh
Actually glad that they are doing so. Bradford has a $17 mil salary this year and probably will want at least that going forward in a new contract. With all that money, 10% of the cap, we need quality but cheap backups.... Draft at least 1 rookie. Is Heinecke staying with the team?

#Vikings met with Lawson. Between his 40-time and getting 35 bench press reps, he's helped himself a ton this week.

The #Vikings say Chad Greenway will officially announce his retirement tomorrow. Great career, making a big impact on and off the field.

I like Kaaya. Especially as a developmental guy. I think it would be a good value pick in the 5th round or later

I agree. Chad Greenway is one of the good guys. I'm glad he was able to play his entire career with the Vikings.

Agreed! It's rare in this day and age. I can still remember when he tore his knee on that kickoff his rookie year. Glad he was able to bounce back and have a nice career.

Can there be a better name for a safety? And he played at Air Force. It's like a super hero and call sign all wrapped in one.

Im guessing EW stands for East-West shrine game. As in that is when he met with the Vikings.

I thought maybe S197 didn't like the Air Force.
