Post Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread
Resigning Forbath is far from the worst move they could have made at that position. I get wanting some fantastic talent like the guy the Rams have, but who of the Free Agent options available fits that mold? I can't think of any. Also, they could find some guy in the draft or scout someone up and bring him in to compete with Forbath well before September.

Worst case scenario: They run the 2018 campaign with Forbath who provided a lot of stability at a position that sorely lacked it the year before. IMO, the word adequate, which was used above, is a good one to describe Forbath. Beyond that, they still have the option of digging into the college pool and/or the draft to see if they can find someone better. Tossing a kicker isn't going to be a major salary cap issue.

IMO, the issues at Guard and the depth situations for the interior lines on both sides of the ball are of far greater importance.

I agree that signing Forbath was not needed this early, bringing in some young competition via the draft or FA would have been good. But to say it is the worst move they could of made is kind of a stretch. It is also likely not too expensive, so it is not a big deal they could still bring in competition for him. We still are like 21 million under the cap this year, I am thinking they go heavy in the draft on OL and use the cap space to extend some players Diggs, Barr, Kendricks, Waynes, Hunter. I hope Billy Price is there at 30 and he starts day 1 next to Elflein. I have a thought in the back of my head that we will trade back into the 2nd to somebody who would like to move to 30 for the 5th year option on 1st rounders, like we did with Teddy.

Exactly. Forbath is much better than Walsh. He's not the best kicker in the NFL but he's certainly not the worst.

He's down there. He's below average on normal FGs and he's *terrible* on extra points (compared with the league, of course) - which is a significant amount of his kicks. Half of his kicks last year were XPs and hopefully that ratio trends more towards XPs next year as well.

Kicker is in need of significant improvement. Whether or not better options are there is up for debate but if we should be seeking improvement shouldn't be, I don't think.

I said it was "far from the worst move".

I think we could improve at the position (we can at all positions...) and should look to do so, but if they go into the season with Forbath, it isn't the end of the world. They have more pressing needs than kicker IMO. OL is #1 right now and depth at OL / DL is probably #2. CB depth is probably next on the list, it was obvious in the playoffs that Newman is at the end. I still think there is a strong chance they'll go DL in the 1st round even though the needs at OG are probably greater with the signing of Richardson. They are more likely to get impact at that position in the first round.

I mean he's 18th in FG%. Thats hovering around league average. Extra points I mentioned were not good. It's concerning but I feel a lot more comfortable with him than Walsh. We should definitely bring in competition but saying that it's a terrible move and so on given what is currently out there, is 100% false IMO

How many XPs did he miss after moving to the right hash? The final 8 weeks he only missed one. The final 5 he was perfect. I'm just wondering if the problem has been corrected.

Vikings to sign former Bears lineman, Tom Compton.

From the link:

"Compton started five games for the Bears last season at left and right guard and figures to be a player that can come in and give a spot start when need be. With the Vikings looking at potentially losing Jeremiah Sirles in free agency and Joe Berger to retirement, they were going to be searching for depth during the second wave of free agency as things cooled down from the big splashes to open the league year.

Compton, who is 28-years-old, is a Minnesota native who grew up in Rosemont and is an alum of South Dakota State University. He was a sixth round pick of the 2012 NFL Draft of the Washington Redskins, where he spent the first four seasons of his career. He spent the 2016 season with the Atlanta Falcons before signing with the Bears last year and he has appeared in 71 career games with 15 career starts."


Looks like a depth signing more than anything, but one that they need as it covers an area where they are thin on the roster. Hopefully Compton can be competitive in his role.

Good depth signing


Per Tomasson, he's close with Cousins (roommates). Cousins went to Atlanta's playoff games two years ago when they made their run. He'll be a happy guy to be reunited with his friend.

It's not a bad signing considering the options, no. Hopefully DP is right and he's got his issues worked out. He did improve at the end of the year.

This is my concern and there should be better options. When Cairo went down in KC, they picked up Butker off the streets and he hit 90% of his FG's and every PAT. If another team can find a solid kicker during the season, Prifer should be able to find an upgrade in the offseason or else why is he here?

And maybe he will. I don't know the details of the contract, hopefully none of it is guaranteed. I'm just worried until I see some competition.

Butker was an UDFA. There’s none of those really floating out there right now until after the draft. The FAs out there are not good. At all

I still want to know who they could have brought in (at this point) that is a better option than Forbath? To me this is just posting because there is nothing else to post about. It isn't like the 2nd coming of Morten Anderson was out there on the market and we picked Forbath over him. I'm not sure there was a better option than Forbath out there. Maybe there will be when the draft comes around and then we can get all bent out of shape about it.

Meh. He's been s reserve for most of his career. I'd hope we do better.

I still want to know who they could have brought in (at this point) that is a better option than Forbath? To me this is just posting because there is nothing else to post about. It isn't like the 2nd coming of Morten Anderson was out there on the market and we picked Forbath over him. I'm not sure there was a better option than Forbath out there. Maybe there will be when the draft comes around and then we can get all bent out of shape about it.


Exactly. That is why I listed the options so it will open some fans eyes to see how bad the kickers were out there. Like I said, Forbath is far and away our best option right now. Just takes a little research to find that out. The ones that dont look into it are the ones that get bent out of shape over it
