Russell is terrible jsut my opinion the only big plays he comes up with are ones that fall into his lap, a couple he even got lucky on because he was out of position not to mention his tackling for some reason i cant stand a safety that falls in front of a player hoping that they will trip over him we need an upgrade
i know i might get some flack for this...but i might be the only one who doesn't mind having russell on the vikes, even starting for us.
he really isn't as bad a people say. he had some bigtime plays last season for us. remember the hit he put on freddie mitchel on the goal line and caused a fumble and touchback. his hands were not as sure as they were in 2003, but he is still a good safety.
that being said, if we get Darius, he'd be a good back-up.
smoot, Awinfield, Bwill, chavous, russell...this sounds pretty f-in good even w/o Darius in the mix for our secondary.
