    Derek Ross still available.

    The Vikings are expected to sign a defensive back as early as today. Cornerback Derek Ross, who was with the team briefly this summer, is available. He failed his physical with Arizona because of knee tendinitis, but the Vikings don't consider his knee problems to be serious.

    I found that at www.startribune.com What do you guys think? Ross still needs a week or two off I am sure to be at 100%. But this kid has GREAT talent, intercepting 5 passes his rookie season for the Cowboys. We need someone, and he's the ONLY corner that I know of in the FA that had skills that we could use. I say we sign him, give him until after our buy to rest up and get that knee to 100%. It won't be a pretty sight, but i think Nelson and Jones can get us through the buy week. Wha do you guys think?

    There's a reason that he's been on 5 squads in the last year.

    Doesn't mean we don't need him or he can't help us out a ton. It isn't like we have a bunch of choices.

    That's true, there isn't alot of choices. He's just too much of a cancer to for my liking. But If he could actually play up to his potential without any of his other problems, he'd be worthy of a pick up.

    Too much of a cancer? The kid can play! Tice knows that! Tice said nothing but good things when he was here with us. Tice claimed he was a pure bred and that he'd going to make some plays. The only reason we originally released him is because his kneww wasn't quite up to par, and we thought we had reasonable depth with players who have been with us since spring training. I say we sign him... we have nothing to lose at this point.
