Great signing. He is better than Norman and Johnson. Glad to have him and Griffen locked up now for Hunter and Barr.

Glad they were able to get this done, CBs are premium in the NFL these days.

Barr may have to wait and prove last year was a fluke. Rumor is Linval is next.

One this I love about the vikings is that the "money" guy always seems to be 3 steps ahead.

Rob Brzezinski has been a huge asset to the team.

Good article. Love Terrell Buckley's perspective.

X is one of my favorite players, and has been for awhile. Really glad he's a Viking long term.

The big thing I want to see Rhodes get better at is reducing his penalties.

I agree, although I feel the refs have had a tendency to be flag happy with him. But, knowing that as a pro, he'll have to adjust.
