    Smoot not optimistic about playing in DC next year

    When asked if he felt that if there was no deal before season's end, then there'd be no deal at all, Smoot said, 'Yeah, that's how I think.'

    'I want to be here bad,' Smoot said. 'It's not about me wanting to be here, it's about them wanting me to be here. I was talking to Champ about two or three weeks ago and that's all he was saying. It's never the player. It's all about the front office and do they want me here. You're only where you're wanted.

    '[Champ said], 'Don't look at the team when it comes to the money part of it. Look at the team, the coaches, the scheme they run, the group of guys you're going to play with. Look at the whole scenario.' '

    Smoot not optimistic about playing in DC next year

    Smoot would be welcomed with open arms by this Viking fan if he decided to sign with the Vikings next year...from what I have seen of him (I live near DC, so I get all the Redskins games), he is a very good CB and would easily supplant BWill as the starter (in which case, I would recommend that the Vikings move him to safety and sit either Russell or Chavous).

    Yeah, smoot would be awesome with winfield. Is brian williams a FA, I can't remember? If he is, it wouldn't make much sense to sign him and try him at safety, a position we don't know how good he would be at. If he isn't a FA at the end of the year, i would like the move to safety, or at least try it. It would also be nice to have him at #3 Cb, if we could somehow get smoot, woodson, or buchanon, and draft a good safety in the 1st round.

    I'd doubt he would want to come here after what he saw this past week, especially if his remarks and comments are like that. :|

    I think Champs words to him would negate the Vikings as a place where he would play football.

    "Look at the Guys, the Scheme, the Coach"

    He might like the scheme possibly, he might like the guys but as people as respect D footballers????????

    The only thing we could lure him with is Money but then he would look at Red and Hightail it outta here.

    Maybe new ownership would be enough for someone to overlook the criteria they just set for themselves.

    We got to get someone to help out back there.
