    Chester will not find a better gig as a backup ... and at 30-years-old ... he really cannot expect a starting position anywhere.

    I would not be surprised to see the Vikings not even try to keep him honestly. He is 30 and there are going to be younger options available at some point to spell AD, whether through the draft or free agency.

    I wish him luck ... but I think Minnesota is the best place for him, especially if we express interest in keeping him.
    How about Young?
    Really haven't seen him play much but could he be like a 3rd down McCoy/Sproles kind of guy?


    I like how you are not afraid to lose CT.
    I would like to keep him, but maybe we are willing to find a draft pick that could be a third down guy with a 6/7 year upside to them.
    Someone that will be around to keep AD fresh for the years to come.

    Given the certainty of getting starter $$$ compared to the odds the Vikes will win the SB next year, if they don't do it this year.
    I imagine Taylor will be fielding offers as soon as possible, whereas Favre will be sitting on the fence till???
    Without Favre the chance of winning the SB goes down considerably.

    Thus, if CT is smart he would take the money, just like Birk did, but I think he should look at a better team than the Redskins.
    Colts need a run game if Brown doesn't work out, so I would think there would be a good choice plus a chance to win the SB.
    The certainty of starter money? Who pays 30-year-old RBs to be their starter?

    CT at best can hope to be the top guy of a committee somewhere (maybe Indy as you stated) ... but he is not going to get a monster contract to be the No. 1 guy anywhere.

    Brown is working out isn't he.
    He has been injured a bit, but I think he sticks in Indy.

    Yeah ... I like Young, but I don't know if he has the speed and/or power to be very effective.

    I think the draft is a very good opportunity for us to get someone for this spot as RBs are a dime a dozen and not a huge thing to look for in the FA market.

    I would love to keep Chester, but I am not going to go overboard like many around these parts and suggest he is a top-tier RB in this league. He is very good right here, but we really might not need him going forward.

    Okay, it is just speculation.
    We should have got something for him if we weren't going to try and resign him.
    Should have traded for Betts and a draft pick or something like that before the trade deadline went by.

    The best way to get him to stay is to win the Bowl.


    If he still feels he needs to make a name for himself, have at it CT, make your name.
    man id want this guy to retire a Vike. But it is a business and I'm sure Dan Snyder would give him all the money he wants. But honestly if I was Chester, I'd prob stay with Minny. [size=10pt]Think about it, why would I want to be the backup of Clinton Portis and max win 6 games than be the backup and 3rd Down back for AP and go deep into the playoffs?[/size]
    Lets not forget, this is a business.
    Very few players have the luxury to be set to the point that they will opt to stay with a winning team for less money going into thier last contract.

    Most are looking for thier last payday to take care of them and thiers.
    CT will be doing that. He will go to the team that offers him the most money IMHO.
    Nothing more nothing less.

    Good point, however, do you really think his goal will be to win a SB or to make sure his family is set?
    I kindof lean towards that last.


    CT will be looking for one last big contract.
    Unfortunately, I believe that contract will be higher than what the Vikes will offer, if they offer anything at all.

    Indy has a history of getting rid of RBs, not signing them.

    Faulk
    James
    Rhodes
    now Addai, people were speculating that Addai would be at half carries by mid season.
    I think Browns injury has put a damper on that for now.

    Re: Chester Taylor to the Redskins?

    Let Taylor go and use the $$$ to get Lendale White if the Titan's don't extend him and he hits the RFA market.
    A big back to go with AD would be a great change of pace.
    AD then can let LW do the scut work short yardage, NOT NECESSARILY GOALLINE, so he can keep fresh and break the big ones late in the game.

    LW has more carries and a hire avg than CT, but LenDale isn't a receiver.
    But I expect AD to become a quality receiver soon.

    I would love to see AD and LW in the backfield.

    Or just draft a guy or promote one of the guys you've been developing.
    Seriously, teams that have success don't run around signing a bunch of FA's.
    They typically draft well, develop thier talent, and if they can't fill a spot that way, then go out and get a FA.


    My guess is that this staff will look to resign Chester if they are able, look to thier bench, look to the draft, and if they aren't happy with any of those efforts, sign a mid tier guy.

    The Vikings will go with a younger, cheaper back. Just like they did at the fullback position.
    I just hope the new guy can pass block.

    I love CT, but it's business. Besides, CT would like to play more. And he deserves more playing time.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"
