Now I want Okung to play left tackle, and maybe take a flyer on fluker cheap for right guard.

Lions fan here. Congrats on signing Reiff, I know you guys were really in need of a tackle.

Reiff is about as average as a tackle can possibly be. He can play either LT or RT, being perfectly average at both. He will have a few games that are slightly above average, and a few that are below average that might have some of you pulling your hair out. Where Reiff really struggles is with speed rushers. He isn't especially good in the run game.

Congrats again, and hopefully you guys didn't pay too much.

He is better than Kalil imo

Liking the moves, drinking the Kool aid

I agree. A ham and cheese sandwich is better than Kalil. Not sure what the Panthers were thinking.

i don't like letting Locke walk. He was a draft pick and he really did well last season. Zero compensation and now a need.

I agree 1,000%. I can't imagine he would be that expensive either. What punters are available?

Not a chance I would draft him. He may have learned his lesson and will be a good human being going forward, but no way I draft/sign a guy who laid a woman out like that, no way.

Kai Forbath. I don't think he'll be tough to replace. His accuracy was okay last year but he's seriously bad on kickoffs.

I'd like to see them sign Zurlien from the Rams. They let him go today. He's got a cannon of a leg (hence the "Greg-the-leg" nickname) and most of his struggles where when Fisher lost his mind and had him kicking 55+ kicks routinely.

I somehow didn't realize Locke was a free agent. I think they really dropped the ball on not resigning him.

So if he decked out a guy, you'd have no problems drafting him? I love how a woman can basically tee off on a man but said guy has to show restraint. I don't believe in "oh, you aren't supposed to hit a woman" rather I go by the belief that people ought to keep their hands to themselves and not on anyone , man or woman. The only reason that this is such a boon of contention is that it was on videotape. Tyreke Hill, who was a rookie with the Chiefs also had domestic violence issues and those people in KC cheered him on regardless. Fact is, Mixon needs to address it head on, show remorse and people stop bringing it up.

He has addressed it head on. He has shown remorse.

Actually the Vikings signed a punter in January and apparently are very happy with him. That is why they let Locke walk. Atleast that is what I heard this morning.

Yes. They signed Taylor Symmank. He was a punter at Texas Tech. They also added Kicker Marshall Koehn to their offseason roster as well.

Seems kind of weird that that is the only site to have broke the news/rumor. I remain skeptical.

Ugh, I'm not too thrilled about them signing fat boy. An upgrade to Asiata for sure but this is a good draft for RB's, would prefer FA money spent elsewhere.

After looking around, this is probably bullcrap.

Schefter says Lacy is visiting Seattle today, the Vikings tomorrow or Sunday, before finally revisiting the Packers. Why would he all of a sudden decide against that, and why would this random obscure sport site know about it before anyone else? Yea, probably not.

You call him fat because he had one season where he was overweight? His average was 4.1 ypc that season regardless.

Lol, at comparing him to Asiata, he is closer to being Adrian Peterson then he is to being Matt Asiata.

That said, I understand wanting to test the RB draft class, that is probably the only reason a guy like him isn't signed yet.

What's criminal about the Joe Mixon case is that the girl got off without being charged for assault. Also please stop calling it Domestic Violence. She was a stranger who put her hands on him twice before she was decked.
