    Jags gave up even more than the Vikes did to get their new Defensive End

    Check this out;

    "4. The Jags roll the dice with Harvey.

    When the Minnesota Vikings gave up a first-round pick and two third-rounders (and swapped sixth-rounders with KC) to get one of the best defensive players in the game from the Chiefs, the media went loco talking about the risk the Vikes had taken.

    When the Jaguars gave up a first-round pick, two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick to get an unproven rookie who plays the same position, the reaction wasn't nearly as extreme.

    Although Derrick Harvey might eventually be as good as Jared Allen, the Vikings definitely got the player who already has reached that level. If the Vikings are right about Allen having exorcised his off-field demons, the Jags are the ones who took the real risk."

    We knew this on draft day.

    Baumy started a thread on this subject on April 26th & GG started another one on April 27th.

    True but i think it stayed under the radar in the national news etc nice to know there is an article about it.

    At some point you have to relax a little about it.
    You can't always find a topic, even if you search for it.
    And not everyone reads every single thread.
