Broncos looking to trade TJ Ward or else he'll be cut. Vikings should get on that. Preferably signing him if he's cut.

I feel bad for him but felt he was very overrated. He will probably get a job with someone, if not now maybe in mid-season.

I love the trade. Needed some depth at corner. I said that earlier in the offseason. Solid acquisition

PFF's #16 rated corner last year. Can he play the slot or is he an outside guy?

I'm thinking he is going to play the slot. I think Alexander is better suited for the outside.

Love the trade. Now if they can just get the run d sorted out.
Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers.

100% agree.

Might be nice for the Vikings to start giving Alexander reps on the outside.

Hm....
@JReidDraftScout 97% (!!) of Tramaine Brock's snaps the past 2 seasons have come as an outside CB. It'll be interesting to see where they play him.
