Yes, I'd easily count 20 from that list, and there are a lot of names missing from that list as well.


Again, that's laughable to say that 20 of those backs are better than Murray. I honestly dont even want to ask who because I think it's that much of a gap. I have no more to even say

A recent mock on NFL.com has us landing him in the 2nd.

Yes!

I wish the Vikes would have taken Brantley last draft--he plummeted because of off-field issues, but he looks like he is working out for the Browns. Bryan would be nice

Yeah man the kid is a stud. They’ve always been know for their defensive lineman. Floyd was a stud he just ran into some bad luck

Would the Vikes have interest in Malcolm Butler?

Any chance of prying Rothlesberger from Pitt if they don't make a deal with Leveon?

I honestly think Butler is way overrated. I feel like nobody would know who he is if it wasn’t for his pick in the super bowl. Plus he’ll want ridiculous money. No thanks

I agree, but he is probably even with wheel Newman is at right now too. I would be ok if they signed him if Newman changed his mind or something.

Yup. It speaks volumes he didn't play this year in the SB. Plus I'm fine with going forward with Rhodes/Waynes/Alexander as our nickel package, we have pressing needs elsewhere.

Agreed. I’d like to get CB DEPTH but there is no need to make any kind of big push for a CB. Mid-late round rookie or a cheap FA is fine with me.

Not big on his draft or FA signings. But hey, I love reading mocks like that. Very similar to the ones I do. I'll fire one up on here for you guys soon. Gotta do a little more studying :lol:

That was a good read, he put in a lot of effort. Some thoughts off the top of my head:

Releases - Floyd is a certainty. Murray I think is a tough one. It's a lot to pay a backup RB in this day and age. Hyde, Blount, and Gore are a couple of guys who will be free agents. I don't think they'll all command $5M+ (maybe Hyde). Have Murray restructure or take one of those who will play for $3M.

RFAs - 2nd round tender on Easton and Harris make sense. Easton did a pretty good job last year and $2.8M for a potential starter is good. Harris and Kearse make for good depth at safety and both are excellent in special teams. Sirles I think that's too high of a tender. His versatility is nice but Isidora and Hill (plus potential draftee) can make up the rest of the backup O-line.

Our FAs - I think letting Shamar Stephen walk is a bad idea. He's a solid run stuffer who is a good backup to Joseph. Tom Johnson is getting up in years and I can see them parting ways. McKinnon is a tough loss but I agree with it.

Trade Treadwell - It's probably time to move on, he underperformed Wright at a similar number of snaps (actually he probably had more). But for a 6th, you may as well keep him around and hope he has a big growth spurt.

FAs - I'm on board with Pugh. He's versatile and would be an upgrade to Easton/Berger. Norwell isn't hitting free agency. Robey-Coleman is an interesting one. I think Alexander can be our nickel but you can't have enough corners. Moncrief is one I hadn't considered. If he'd come that cheaply, I'd give him a shot.

Draft - No opinions yet.

Free Agent Josh Andrews signed by us guys.

The Vikings have signed free-agent offensive lineman Josh Andrews, the team announced Monday. Andrews spent the previous three seasons in Philadelphia, where he played in 16 NFL games. A 6-foot-2, 315-pound guard, he spent all of 2017 on the Eagles’ practice squad.

Looks like Josh Sitton is gonna be available. How would he fit in? He's 31 so probly wont be a super long deal. But he did grade out as the 5th best guard in the league last year.

I am hoping Jet is talking about something other then being locked into a Vikings contract. Hes nothing but a mini version of Cook. Murry, with a re-tunes contract would be a much better fit, as would Blount. Even Hamm would be, hes a decent RB/FB. AD came back 100% after tearing his ACL, no reason to think Cook cant. We are going to be watching Cook highlights for at least 10 years i bet.

Ive never been a Jet fan either. The 2 were very close to the same YPC i think. And times when Murray was only getting a yard or 2 a carry, then I wanted Jet to go in to throw the D off, cause it could be a run or pass. But Our O was very conservative on both 1st and 3rd downs. Plus I would mind keeping Murray if he takes a pay cut, because it would such if Cook went down.

Well if McKinnon re-upped with the Vikes, Murray has to be restructured or cut., right ?

I thought McKinnon made the statement he wanted to be a starting running back.
