Being a free agent, is not the same as being viewed as "Not good enough elsewhere".

As to Remmers and Kalil, i'd take Remmers any friken day, I don't know what the Panthers were thinking.

Re: Vikings sign OT Mike Remmers, formerly of the Panthers

I believe I Will sit in your camp till either or both tackles prove you wrong. I sure hope both don't prove to be cast offs How can you "prove to be cast offs"? What happened with their other teams are over with and regardless of what they do from here on out, nothing would change whether they were...

Re: Vikings sign OT Mike Remmers, formerly of the Panthers

Pretty much anything the Vikings could do is an upgrade on the line. Really doesn't matter if they are other teams castoffs, Vikings were in serious trouble and needed to do something positive. This is an absolutely terrible attitude that would result in nothing but overpayed ####. You would really...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

Doesn't surprise me at all, we hear about players taking less deals to play elsewhere for some reason, some are valid but I cant help to think most see us for the #### franchise we are and actually want a chance at a ring? I doubt the Vikings offered him 15 mil a year, it was probably a little bit ...

Re: 2017 Vikings Free Agency Signings Thread

Why would they not try to keep CP84? He is one of the few players we have who can make plays. Free agents nearly always get payed at the very least, a little more then they deserve, and the Vikings probably would rather find a guy who can actually play WR well then resign him. I think you can only ...

Re: 2017 Vikings Free Agency Thread (Discussion Thread)

Mixon is exactly what we need on the field.... However, I know for a fact, 100%, that I could not nor would I ever root for him in front of my daughter or my son ! What he did, regardless of what she did to provoke him, is inexcusable in my book and completely against my beliefs and how I raise my ...

Re: 2017 Vikings Free Agency Thread (Discussion Thread)

Has he seen half the amount of loaded boxes that AP had to face? Lacy has gone through two periods in his career where he was facing loaded boxes week in week out. In 2013 with Matt Flynn at QB, Eddy Lacy was the focal point of the D, which loaded the box each and every snap, he averaged 4.7 yards ...

Re: 2017 Vikings Free Agency Thread (Discussion Thread)

The thing about Eddie. Is he good on short yardage? Can he pass block? If I remember correctly, 3rd and short was a glaring weakness in 2016. If he can do both well, I wouldn't mind him in purple but not as the featured back. I'm sure the Vikings would but a weight clause in his contract. Look at E...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

Bottom line was, he was benched. Going from a starter to a backup is being benched. No matter what way you look at it. But I'm not getting into Lacy anymore. Jeffery isn't worth 15 million IMO. Too much risk for my liking. Much rather go the depth route. We have big contracts coming up. No need to ...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

He's been injured and nailed for PEDs. He gets hit again for PEDs and he could be out much longer. No less, he's been injured. Not worth $15 million IMO. Lacy has been benched 1 year and hurt the next. Similar situation. They aren't worth big contracts. I would take either one on cheaper contracts ...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

You're referring to statistics in a smaller sample size. Yeah sweet, Jeffery had 800 yards in 12 games.....how about playing a whole season the past two years. That would be nice....and helpful. If I'm in a front office I'm not signing a guy that can give me 9-12 games. And thats what these guys ha...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

You're hooked on this game by game stat. How about playing a whole season and producing?? Something neither guy you have talked about tonight has done in two years. Joe Blow could put up good 10 game statistics but that doesnt help us get to the next level. No less is a waste of money if you're pay...

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

Like really, in regards to the merits of your WR core, you call receiving yards "Unnessecary information".

This is incredible.

Re: Alshon Jeffery Denies Vikings, Signs with Eagles

I never said we needed to call it a day. But we also don't need to pay a guy that hasnt produced in two years $15 mill a year. Clearly we need to add depth at the position but we don't need to break the bank for a guy. And that stat you provided also means nothing when I'm talking about our TWO WR'...
