    Re: Ben Leber contract already set to be a Viking Monday!!

    I like Leber too, but not for 4 mill a year, thats insane. With the cap problems and all i think its highly unlikely anyone else offers him that kind of money, we don't need to pay him 4 mill a year. I think we could get him at a better price.

    This is most likely speculation.

    Re: Ben Leber contract already set to be a Viking Monday!!

    I know this is something to expect since Foley was with San Diego but is he looking at anybody else now or just any available ex-Charger player that he can find? I am interested that he grew up here maybe if this is true and he is signed we can then go get Adam Vinatieri and draft Chad Greenway then we will have three guys who grew up in South Dakota.

    The way I look at it is hes had success already in his career.Ofcourse one main reason Foley wants him is becuz they have ties together, but I also think Childress is signing players to ensure quality depth. Right now we have a bunch of LB's that just seemed to be confused. Bringing in players who are used to the Cover 2 will rub off on the other LB's.

    Also I like the fact Childress isnt stacking the team with stars. You look at the pistons...and the reason why they win and play so good is the Chemistry and the perfect mix on the court.Ben Wallace, Chauncy Billups, and Teyshaun prince all found succes in Detroit. I dont think we need to sign a Pro Bowl player at every postion....thats what coaching is for...to get players to Pro Bowl Status.

    Ben Leber is a little more then average. He's actually a very very very solid LB....I remember last year he held off Shawn Merriman for 4 or so games before getting benched in favor of.

    Even still the numbers in that contract is ridiculously high!

    Leber is nothing more then an average LB. No way does he deserve that type of money. I thought we had enough average LB's that don't make many plays. Eventually we are gonna have to get a LB that is a play maker, which is not what Leber is. Leber is a guy that doesn't make mistakes, but also dosn't make big plays. They only thing that he will help us with is his ability to cover TE's. He is better at that then any LB we have. We better still push hard for witherspoon or peterson.

    Leber is a strong side linebacker so Thomas won't be affected by us signing him it would make it more unlikely that we bring back Keith Newman so that would be bad news for Ultra.

    way tooooo much money for an uproven bench warmer. I hope that this story is fake. Lets go after the big name guys like peterson.

    He hasn't been a bench warmer till this season when they drafted Merriman and he was going to play over him since he was in his last year. I do agree with you on the fact that I hope we did not pay him that much and that we will still go after some one else as well to help the Vikes out.
