    At the moment, I like the 49'ers defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin.
    He's the perfect replacement for our belowed Pat Williams. Pat is getting up there in age, but Franklin is only 29 and is an excellent run stopper.

    I also like Ryan Clark of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is an excellent safety and we could definitely need an upgrade in the secondary.

    I would also be happy if either Julius Peppers or Aaron Kampman was signed to replace Ray Edwards on the left side. Don't get me wrong, we don't really need an upgrade at LE because Edwards is doing a good job, but NFL is about getting the best players as possible. With Peppers or Kampman, Vikings will have 4 Pro Bowls on the defensive line alone.

    We already have the consistent and perhaps the best pass rushing DT in a 4-3 defensive scheme and arguably the best pass rushing right end in a 4-3 scheme. Imagine if we add arguably two of the best pass rushing left ends in a 4-3 scheme in the mix and we won't even have to blitz opposing teams
    LOL
    ;D

    Then there is Chester Taylor... I really don't want to lose this guy. I can always rely on Chester when Adrian Peterson goes down with an injury. Remember when Adrian went down late in the season in his rookie year? Chester stepped up and we won all 4 games without Adrian.
    I want to cross defensive ends of the list of possible free agent signing candidates after watching Ray Edwards back-to-back monster performances in the last couple of games.

    In the last two Vikings games, Ray Edwards has an amazing 4 sacks (the same as his season best), 8 quarterback hits, 8 solo tackles, one forced fumble and one recovered fumble.
    I don't know what got into Edwards' ass but hehas stepped up his game nicely.
    I wonder if maybe his originaly thinking that everyone was going to key on JA and now they have to put someone on KW as well maybe RE was on to something.

    Re: Unrestricted Free Agents In 2010

    Obviously we need to try and keep Edwards. There is no reason to let him walk and think we can just plug Robison into the hole.
    If we can make a play on Kampman (again) then maybe you do, but otherwise, we need to try and keep Ray.
    I think Ray is shaping up to possibly be a franchised player ... though that might be a little pricey to keep him.

    Why does everyone want to replace a good player (Phat Pat) with a good player (Wilfork), that's only younger.
    Or replace a good improving young player (Edwards) with a better older player (Peppers).

    On the strongest corp of the team.
    Not good business sense to put money in a place where it will deliver the least improvement.
    Amen. All the DL needs is a draft pick to groom behind Pat.

    What I worry about is that this staff tends to try to resign the vets by now.
    It would be interesting to know if his agent and the Vikes have already been talking or if there haven't been any discussions at all.

    As to Robison.
    I wouldn't be to quick to just count him out.
    I for one never thought Ray could carry the extra wieght/stand up to the beating on running plays when in fact that is the strenght of his game.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Found this and thought it would be valuable to have once we get into the off season.

    You know Jimmy Kennedy is 30 right? Not everyone's going to play to 37+ like P-Will. He's a short term solution if he continues to up his play, but isn't our guy for the future.
