I figured I would start this now. We can use it for updates and discussion regarding in-house and outside free agents coming in

Vikings re-signed S Anthony Harris to a one-year, $705,000 contract.

Harris was an exclusive rights free agent. A 2015 UDFA, Harris has been a valuable special teamer and reserve defensive back. He turns 27 in October.

Harris is a really good sign imo. He is a decent safety, and a good backup. The way Sendejo makes some of those weird tackles and gets hurt. I bet we see Harris quite a bit this year. Im really surprised a team didnt sign him for their starting safety, but I admit, I dont know a lot about the safety position, except Harrison is the best safety in the world. Ever.

I havent a clue who Mark Brown is but that seems like a #### of money for 18 carries. More then I will ever see in my life.

Brown was the leagues leading rusher in the preseason of 2016. He also showed flashes in his first legit game for Washington in week 16 vs the bears in 2016 taking 8 carries for 82 yards and a TD. Could be our 3rd string RB

No other team could sign Harris.

My buddy owns a house in AZ and rents it occasionally to Jarius Wright and Anthony Harris. Harris is a nice guy and likes playing here.
Who is Smiths backup? Can Harris back up both positions?

Yes he’s filled in for both before. Kearse is the other backup who I’ve always liked as well. That’s pretty sweet your buddy does that!

He's also had Sherels there before I think. If Barr ever goes there I'm pushing old ladies out of the way to get there.

I'm a litttle surprised S. Floyd hasn't been released yet. Doesn't the dead cap number go up after the league season starts?

For the off-season Id like to see the Vikings work on solidifying our defense.I thought "Our next man up" game on Defense was kinda weak and we saw it against the Eagles because nobody really stepped up we our secondary got banged up.


As for the QB situation, Ill admit I'm on the skeptical side of adding Cousin's. I think he'll do a decent job with us I'm just not sure if he can take us all the way.

It’s not necessarily if Cousins “will” or “won’t” take us all the way. It’s who is the best option out there to do it. And no doubt the best option at QB is cousins IMO. Case is second for sure. Bradford would be up there if he could stay healthy. Teddy I just don’t see it. The 3 QBs we have hold big risks. With case being the one with the least amount of risk. I don’t see a big risk in Cousins given the consistency of his play and the consistency of his health. Not only do I believe he is the best QB of all 4 but he’s also the only one that doesn’t come with injury concerns or performance concerns. And if he had any, they would be minuscule compared to the other 3

Yea I know you're a strong advocate for Cousins PHP and youre right, he doesn't come with injury concerns but it only takes one unfortunate situation for that to go out the window. As for as Performance, going off of the stats you've posted and a little research myself, he's been way more efficient than our current QBs(Though I believe Bradford could've surpass him in 17' season) but Im skeptical because with all his great stat's, Washington still had mediocre records.

But hey if we get him I'm I wont be mad just skeptical. And even if he plays bad, I promise I wont be one of those I told you so guys. I completely understand that the Vikings front office ultimate goal is to win and any QB decision they make will be a tough one.

Well you definitely make some valid points. But again, don’t let the records fool you. Without Kirk cousins, the Redksins are a very bad team. Like 4 win max team. Look at the Texans. Outside of those few games with Watson they had very bad QB play on a fairly talented team and win 4 games. Houston has a better overall team than Washington does. The records mean nothing to me to be honest. Especially when you’re surrounded by a terrible defense, below average WRs and RBs and a bad offensive line like cousins had this year

Sam Bradford - QB - Free Agent
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Bills are a "team to watch" for free agent Sam Bradford.

Pelissero adds the Vikings have "stayed in touch" with the impending free agent, but Bradford "may have options, provided he can pass a physical." How Bradford's troublesome knee, which coach Mike Zimmer described as "degenerative," fares in medical testing will likely decide how strong his market actually is. If the Bills are comfortable with his health, this marriage makes a lot of sense.

Vikings put second-round tender on Nick Easton

"That will pay him $2.914 million for the year, and effectively take him off what has become a lucrative guard market"

Vikings signed Kirk Cousins, formerly of the Redskins, to a three-year contract.

The deal is believed to be for around $86 million, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it will be fully-guaranteed, a landmark for an NFL free agent. The contract is expected to be finalized after Cousins visits the Vikings' facility on Thursday. It always made sense for Cousins to land in Minnesota, an organization with a strong roster and good coaching which gives him a chance to win right away. This is also an ideal spot for Cousins from a fantasy perspective. With Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and Kyle Rudolph to target and Dalvin Cook in the backfield, Cousins looks like a locked-in QB1.


Our new QB-1 !!!!

The Star Tribune's Ben Goessling reports the Vikings are interested in Bears restricted free agent CB Bryce Callahan.

Chicago only placed an original-round tender on Callahan, meaning they will not be owed any compensation if they decline to match an offer sheet. It was an odd decision for a player who was always likely to draw interest -- it would have only cost the Bears $1 million more to give him a second-round tender. Chicago might end up having to match an offer sheet to retain Callahan.


Like this idea. Good depth right here. Wasting no time
