I agree. Why is that? Is there some sort of rule change or just new Viking policy?

I think Spielman and the organization have always been like that. I remember a few years back, minutes before free agency opened, a report came on Rotoworld saying Chicago was making a strong push for Phil Loadholt. And then about 5 minutes before free agency started, we re-signed him.

I'm sure it just has to involve the tampering period. We let teams talk contracts with our players and if we want them back, we one-up those contracts that other teams are offering to retain them. If thats how they do it then it's a smart move. You prevent yourself from overpaying your own guys.

What I'm worried about is that I havent heard a word on Adam Thielen. Can we throw a tender on this guy!

Paul Allen just said he thinks they will put a 2nd round tender on Theilen and Belecheck will probably swoop in and get him.

Thanks for the update PHP.

Quote:
The Vikings placed a second-round tender on the restricted free agent, according to a league source, meaning Thielen will be paid $2.746 million if he signs the tender this spring. If Thielen, whose breakout season saw him lead the team in receiving yards, were to sign an offer sheet with another club, the Vikings would have the right to match the offer or receive a second-round pick as compensation.


Here is the source for anyone curious: http://www.espn.com/blog/minnesota-viki ... am-thielen

thanks. so assuming another team doesn't offer a 2nd rounder, this just locks him up for 1 year? And he'll be an UFA next offseason (assuming he's not extended earlier).

is this correct?

thanks for reply on the FA question....hopefully we get a flurry or re-signs soon!!!

So lets say the browns get theilen. would that mean that we would get their 2nd round pick for him? Is that how it works?

Restricted Free Agents
Quote:
Restricted free agents can be held in place through the application of one of three tenders. The lowest level provides a right or first refusal. The second-round tender provides a right of first refusal and (duh) a second-round pick as compensation if the original team doesn’t match. The first-round tender carries a right of first refusal and a first-round pick as compensation.
Each player that signs a tender receives a non-guaranteed one-year salary that corresponds to the tender level. Teams which choose not to match an offer on a player with a low tender receive a draft pick corresponding to the round in which the player was originally drafted (except that the highest pick that can be surrendered for such a tender is a second-round pick). For example, a player who was originally drafted in the sixth round of the NFL Draft would force the team signing him to give his former team a sixth-round pick in the upcoming draft as compensation for his service. No compensation is required for an undrafted player on the lowest tender amount, so teams with valued undrafted RFAs are taking a notable risk by offering such tenders. (The top tender prior to 2011 required first- and third-round picks as compensation.)


Basically we have the first right of refusal for the contract offered by another team, and if we refuse, we would get a second round pick from whichever team signs him. I think :)

Apparently Zimmer, Speilman, and our running backs coach were at RB Joe Mixon Pro day today. In my eyes the kid made a big mistake 3 years ago, he has accepted it and done everything asked of him since then. I don't think anyone really knows besides the two involved what really happened that night. I wouldn't be opposed to us drafting this kid.

That sounds about right. The Vikes will probably draft him and he'll be making headlines for the wrong reasons before the end of his rookie contract. :(

It was 3 years ago when he was like 18 or 19. Hasn't done any wrong since. Seems to me he has learned from it by the way he speaks. I will support him if they draft him.

This is a tough one for me. I can see your point about him being a kid and making a mistake, but at the same time, come on, hitting a woman. What type of mentality does it take for someone to do that? Upbringing, people he associates with all would play into it as well. There is just somethings that are hard to overlook. The Team has steered clear of these types of players in recent years (outside of AP). I would have to trust there process of investigation into him, I am sure it would be an extensive one given the investment not only in money, but bad PR just by drafting him......let alone if he had another incident. He's a top ten talent no doubt.....but is it worth the risk to the team? There will be backlash. Glad I am not the one making the decision. As a fan, he'd be fun to watch and has the potential to be a game changer for this offense. But if that were my daughter that he hit, the least of his worries would be getting drafted right now.

Here is the Rotoworld post:

Quote:
Vikings GM Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer both attended Oklahoma's Pro Day.
Dots are already being connected between the RB-needy team and Joe Mixon. Mixon was not invited to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis due to an NFL conduct policy that bars players with misdemeanor or felony convictions involving violence, sex crimes or weapon use from attending. Mixon was caught on tape punching a female student in the face in 2014. "It's real early," Mixon said. "At first I was off a lot of teams' boards. Now a lot (are) interested now. I can only hope, wish and pray for the best outcome in the situation. That's to be drafted." Mixon met with the Lions, Saints, Bengals and Browns the night before his Pro Day, reported NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Who punches a girl in the face? 19 is more then old enough to know you cant do that. Look at Ray Rice. I hope the team think long and hard of this, because the kid has a short fuse. Some of you act like staying out of trouble for a couple years is a lifetime.

Well said. His short fuse was still in evidence last year, although less dramatically:

Documents detail altercation between OU’s Joe Mixon and parking attendant

He was suspended for a game after that incident.

I don't see anyone on here acting like it's a lifetime

Right! The last thing this team needs is a running back who goes overboard and hurts someone weaker than himself :whistle:

Every single time its some on the surface "letter of the law" nonsense. The reports stated there was some kind of confrontation that a few people NOT those two started. The girl apparently got aggressive, called him a few slurs and thats when it happened. Now before you go blasting me for defending the guy or using some cliche "what if that was your mom" bs, think about all the dumb stuff you have done under the influence, or your tolerance for aggression while under the influence. Everyone is different. Everyone reacts different. I'd bet dollars to donuts that mixon wont pull anything like this anytime in the immediate future.

It was a strange situation. The woman has a record...she kept egging Mixon on after their outside encounter with other OU team mates. He went back in the diner for a sandwich when she called him over and repeatedly used the "n" word...she was intoxicated and slugged him in the face when he instinctively walloped her. Big mistake no doubt. But I do wish the talking heads would stop referring to this as a "domestic" incident. They never met before that night.

Well I for one would be fine with them drafting him. I think he is a good back. YouTube his 2016 highlight video, man he can catch! Also lots of snaps out of the shotgun, seems to fit.

Was the day he turned 18, before classes started his freshman year. Kid made a terrible mistake, his actions prior to it weren't the best but his reaction was instinctual to getting slapped.

Pretty tough life lesson to learn but his teammates and coaching staff loved him during his time @ OU - id be ecstatic if we somehow ended up with him but unless we re trading up possibly to the end of round 1 I don't see a chance in hell we get him. He is as dynamic a receiver there is and perfect fit for modern offenses.
