Further evidence of just how effectively the Vikings learn from past mistakes...

Well at least we've got Mr. Tea on the team now. I pity the fool who covers him.

Was looking at the remaining top 100 FA on NFL.com and saw two offensive linemen left. Nick Mangold and Ryan Clady. Any takers on either one of these guys? Would we have cap space to do so?

That might be the best possible name ever for a DT

Crazy thought running through my head...the longer the hold out drags, the more I think maybe the Rams just are not in a place that they want 18M tied up in one player with so many holes to fill in the next few years. MAYBE an opening might come up to approach them with a package like Teddy+Treadwell AND swap say our first for their third next year to pry away Aaron Donald? Not sure how we cover the cap, maybe dump Robison and SF to start? Would make perhaps the best D=Line in history over the next 4-6 years?

That's too bad. I liked him. He seemed to make the most of his opportunities.

I get the idea, but I think signing Bradford is more important.
That would be an incredibly talented DL. Also, incredibly expensive !

Camp arm?

Reports are 49ers are going to cut 33 year old linebacker Ahmad Brooks. Used to be a good player, haven't heard much of him lately.... kinda old too (even though I am 4 years older)
