    Re: 6 Veterans Who Should Be Cut Or Restructure

    Must be a play to re-sign Pat.

    Nice, add that to the toy fund.
    sorta leaves us thin at DT though.
    Yeah, but we drafted Ballard. Maybe it's a sign they are planning to bring Pat Williams back.

    Re: 6 Veterans Who Should Be Cut Or Restructure

    Vikings are apparently not going to re-structure Madieu Williams' contract, although they claim he is unwilling to do so anyway.

    Might be seeing the door however, fingers crossed.

They could also give Adrian Peterson and Chad Greenway contract extensions. The two of them are reportedly set to count about $22 million combined against the cap. And that could be reduced to a more reasonable $14-16 million total — I’m thinking about $8-10 million for Peterson and $6 million per season for Greenway.

    Madieu Williams – set to make $5.4 million each year from 2011-2013
    Bernard Berrian – set to make $3.9 million in 2011, $6.9 million in 2012, and $7.9 million in 2013
    Jim Kleinsasser – set to make $3 million in 2011
    Bryant McKinnie –set to make $5.4 million in 2011, including roster bonus, then $4.5 million in 2012 and $4 million in 2014
    Cedric Griffin – set to make $3.35 million in 2011, $4.1 million in 2012, $4.85 in 2013 and $5.45 million in 2014
    Steve Hutchinson – set to make $6.68 million in 2011, $6.95 million in 2012

    Cut Madieu --> Go after Weddle

    Cut Berrian

    Trade McKinnie, sign Doug Free or another LT (Used to be a big supporter but he's let me down as of late... lazy.)

    If Ced is team oriented, he'd restructure because of his two injuries over the past two years. On the other hand, I don't blame him for not. Either way, we need him in our weak defensive backfield.

    Hutch... Nothing will be done with him.

    Pair those along with resigning AD and Greenway and we could make a play at a couple decent FA's.

    agree, Id keep Kleinsasser as a Fb & dump that POS Tahi!
    I agree with this. He has played FB in the past and IMHO was better at that position anyway.

    I also feel they should cut Madieu.

    Berrian is a tough one because he didn't perform that well the last 2 years but he did prior to that. We are a little thin at the position so it might be worth seeing if he will restructure. If not maybe we could cut him and use his salary towards Rice. That being said I don't think Rice wants to play here and I am not sure that money would be enough to sweeten the pot.

    I would like to spit on M. Williams pink slip before I hand it to him.

    We need to grab the Giants ex-center badly. Cut Mac. I once supported him but even I can see he lacks passion for the game. We can have Robert Gaither for cheap.

    We need to sign Lance Moore. He is a star in the making. Cut BB and Resign Rice.

    They drafted a tight end who can block and catch. Looks like Kliensasser would have to take a pay cut to stay. But I would love to see them dump Tahi and make Kliensasser FB.

    Madieu should be easy to replace for the same or less money.

    We can find someone that will be more productive than Berrian for less money and younger as well. Maybe that guy with 2 last names.
