What is so great about Myles Gaskin. The Dolphins one of the most RB deprived teams in the NFL cut him and now we are waiving Reagor and eating 2Million in salary to sign Gaskin.
I didn't say he was great? Don't know much about him. He played for Flores when they were in Miami. Wonder if they got his input? That's about all I got. Haha.

It was pretty obvious they had to add a rb once teams cut. So that wasn't a surprise.

I was asking the board in general what is so great about him. Not you in particular. Small, slow, unproductive, and cut by the team with the worst RB group in the NFL.

Pass catching is his strength. Maybe that's how they plan to deploy him? It certainly isn't between the tackles.

Maybe KOC feels he fits something in the offense scheme better than what they had?

From Sports Illustrated on David Quessenberry.

This is a nice depth addition to the Vikings' offensive line. In 2021, his lone season as a full-time starter, Quessenberry earned an 80.6 PFF grade that was tied for 14th-best out of 57 tackles with at least 600 snaps played. His 89.1 run-blocking grade was fifth-best among that group, helping balance out a 61.6 pass-blocking grade (he was charged with 43 pressures and 11 sacks allowed that year). Last year, he earned average grades with the Bills but showed his versatility by playing both tackles positions and right guard.
He seems like an improvement over Oli Udoh and Vedarian Lowe. Does anybody know how we made room for him? Kene on the IR or something?

This guy is a monster and also chipped in with 6.5 sacks which is very impressive for a blocker eating NT. Supposedly Vea overwhelms at the point of attack. This is a big challenge for them. We'll see if they're up for it.
The interior OL has consistently struggled with the more aggressive and massive interior defensive tackles for the last several seasons. I expect KOC to try to scheme around that weakness as I don't see how it has been addressed in the offseason, but we'll see.

That would make sense because he sure sucks at running it.

If there was any doubt Muse would have been poached consider this breaking news from Adam Schefter.

Packers claimed TE Ben Sims on waivers from the Vikings,
