    Vikings coach Brad Childress said the team has had "pretty good dialogue" with the agent for Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield, who is entering the final season of his six-year, $35 million contract....

    I was amazed at how low Griffs contract was.
    Seems that will allow the organization to spend a bit and keep Whinny.

    Who said this has been a bad offseason?

    im going with addition by subtraction, Sharper is not a good safety in the cover 2 he's slow and takes horrible angles in run support. Tyrell got some experience last year and has another offseason to get ready.
    Birk is past his prime, since his surgery he has not been the same he lets people blow by untouched, it is great to have a vet like him on the line but not when he is missing as many blocks as he did.

    Thanks josdin00

    Me too.
    Winfield is one of my favorite players in the NFL, he's just such a competitor and has such a strong love for the game.
    I saw him miss a tackle (for like the first time ever) and he got up off the ground, brushed his shoulder off, went over to the RB laughing and game him a pat on the helmet in kind of a "nice job, i'll get u next time" kinda way, he always has an ear-to-ear smile.
    I'll be upset to see him retire as anything other than a Viking.
    He said himself in an interview at around the time of the Pro Bowl that he wants to play for a couple more years, even if he has to get moved to the inside (nickle) or dropped back to safety
