I would draft Johnny Football bring a lil read option to the team and life at that position, you only have the best RB in the league, i think the right coaches Johnny Football will do good in the NFL
Could look at Murray or Mettenberger in the 3rd round if they are there..Both could've been 1st rounders before they got injured..
To ALL of you who wanted us to win those last few games that meant nothing..... GREAT!!! We win all those meaningless games, have the 5th pick to show for it and have 5 teams that need QB's picking ahead of us... We still won't get our QB we need.... THanks!!!
I'm not sure any qbs left at our 8 pick are worth an 8 pick. Might go defense and try for a qb later or FA, although I don't know who. Maybe trade down and get a qb later and something else. Just don't see a qb at 8 for us.
If Cleveland wants Cassel so bad, trade him and our 8th pick to them for their 4th..just a thought
Yeah, it's not looking like we will get a "franchise" QB in this draft because a few teams ahead of us need a QB as well. I was hoping some how that Manziel would be there for us, I just like his style of play and how he keeps his players heads in the game. I just don't see him being there at #8.. Looks like unless something changes, we will be stuck with another season of mediocre QB play..
Vikings, Matt Cassel both have options with two-year, $7.4M deal | 1500 ESPN Twin Cities ? Minnesota Sports News & Opinion (Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Gophers) | Sportswire: Minnesota Vikings
Both sides have a built-in decision in the second year of the deal, which includes a $500,000 roster bonus due on the seventh day of the league year, a $3.15 million base salary and the same workout bonus and incentives as the first year of the deal.
If Cassel believes he can land more money elsewhere, he can void the second year of the deal with written notice up to five days after the Super Bowl and hit the market again. And if the Vikings decide they're paying too much for a backup quarterback, they can cut Cassel before the roster bonus is due without owing another dime or taking a cap hit.
