    Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    From this morning's fanball.com Fantasy Football Newsbreakers:

    Vikings: Williams unlikely to return
    The News
    Vikings cornerback Brian Williams indicated Monday that he has played his final game with the team. "That's what it looks like," Williams told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I haven't really talked to my agent, but I'm sure (the free agent market is) pretty good." Williams also indicated that the Vikings made him a "low" contract offer last year.
    Our View
    The Vikings are well under the salary cap and could afford to re-sign Williams, but they already have a lot of money committed to cornerbacks Antoine Winfield and Fred Smoot. For that matter, Williams has indicated that he is not interested in playing a backup role.
    This would suck. A lot. Maybe we should look at trading Smoot, because at this point I'd take B. Will over Smoot any day of the week.

    B Will came around nicely this year. Smoot disappointed me. Typical Vikings. Develop a defensive back and let him go.

    Make smoot a safety to take Chavous' spot and let b Will play corner. OR vice a versa.

    This is going to be sad for sure, I was really impressed with B.W's play this year..

    I'de have to agree with the statement above, let Smooth go and keep BW....

    Hopefully the new Office and Coaches will see it the same as I...

    Smoot should be better next year. My guess is this year was a wake-up call to Smoot.

    Also, Brian Williams is a really streaky player. This was a contract year, so he probably put more time into preperation than usual.

    But hopefully Brian goes somewhere and has a nice career.

    It is too bad, we got jumpy last year and had to go sign "shut down" corners.

    A lot of us fell for the hype, a few here didn't.

    But, if he is gone and we can't sign him back, I feel he deserves to start somewhere.

    Good Luck b-will.

    B-Will was a solid corner, but this move has been coming for over a year. Make no mistake, Smoot is a better corner coming off an injury plagued year. At this point it would make absolutely no sense to trade him. Brian had a poor year last year, and this year he was above average, so he is anything but a consistent player. Brian had his shot to prove that he was starter material for 1.5 years, and yet the team still felt the need to sign Smoot, a move that most of us applauded at the time.

    I guess all you have to do is get a few picks and everyone feels you're a much better corner. Hey what happened to Brian Russell?

    This sucks. You can never have enough good CB's. But the guys we have left are good... A-win, Smoot, Davonte and Brown. I think Davonte will be a big time CB for us next year.

    Hey! It ain't ovah till it's ovah, y'know? Mebbe Brian's just tryin' ta gedda raise, y'know?

    Anyways, I would dump Smoot for Williams. Smoot could talk da talk, but he couldn't walk da walk, y'know?

    smoot is alot better than brian williams, nuff said. Brian is a good corner, but when smoot is at his best, brian is nowhere near as good as him. One bad year doesnt mean anything when he has already established himself as the 15 best corners in football.
