All in for X

Post by mike2mike » Fri Sep 15, 2017 11:20 pm

Let's imagine the Vikings are about to make an aggressive move for any player in the NFL right now... who do you target first? Honorable mentions?

Would have to be an OL imo behind that I would
say LB, DB S Or offensive player would be the best
for us.

So an upgrade hopefully younger tackle
would be my top choice

Andrew Luck?? Not a chance I ever trade for him. You think Bradford is injury prone? Luck is even worse

He has more long-term upside as a "young" QB than pretty much anyone out there. This is all hypothetical so I'm assuming he gets healthy and stays that way.

I get what you're saying but the guy hasnt been consistently healthy in how long? At this point, he's more injury prone than Sam Bradford.

I don't have a problem if fhe wanted to sign Kaepernick, but I'm not sure he would do well in Schurmur's offense.

This more than anything. He really isn't a good fit not "He isn't a "good fit" as a copout for not liking him because of his political stance"
