    Toniu Fonoti available.

    Just thought I might as well start the rumour mill going since I just noticed that the Falcons cut former Viking (for what all of one game?) G - Toniu Fonoti.

    Anyone want the giant Samoan back in purple.
    I would guess probably not, but I remember how excited I was when we signed him the first time.
    He seemed like such a beast, but he turned out to be such a bust instead.

    Sorry no link I just saw it on the NFLN bottom ticker, so I dont have a link.

    Nah, he's too overweight, and as a result, injury prone, to be worth consideration.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I agree. He can't keep the weight off. He's had two chances to do it already or not make the team & he's failed.

    How much does he weight now? Is he still up in the 400's?

    No, thanks.
    We already gave him a look once.

    Being overweight, injury prone, and having a poor work ethic is a bad combination.
    It's too bad; this guy was an All-Pro for the Chargers a few years ago.
