    Defensive Ends getting Lighter and Faster?

    Interesting article:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=2800846

    I kind of like what we have now...a good combination of bulk and speed with our current mix on the roster:

    http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/teams/roster?team=min

    Also, I didn't realize how YOUNG our team actually was until I looked at the roster.

    Richardson, Birk and Kleinsasser are the only ones 30 or over on offense...and only PWill and Sharper are over 30 on defense. (Longwell is also over 30...but YOUNG in KICKER years...LOL)

    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    "The latest buzz is that the Redskins, who have the No. 6 overall pick in next month's NFL draft, want to trade down. If that happens, the Vikings, who have the No. 7 pick, could end up with defensive end Gaines Adams of Clemson.

    Im still not sure who will be a better player in the NFL. Gaines or Anderson, but so far Gaines is the top rated DE in this draft.
