    On top of that, now ol' Denny needs a RB in Arizona...He may draft one but I suspect that if the Vikes start talking trade regarding Michael Bennett he'll be shipped down there to join his old coach.

    Shipp seemed to do well when he wasn't injured, which wasn't very long.
    I still think Denny would love to have Bennett on his team. A trade wouldn't surprise me one bit...

    Emmit Retires and Joins in Reggies team of buyers!

    Here's the article, for those who didn't read it, I got it off of CBSsportsline .....

    Saint Paul Pioneer Press
    Feb. 1, 2005


    Look for future Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith to announce today his retirement from the Arizona Cardinals to join Reggie Fowler's investment group that is trying to buy the Vikings. Fowler's group also includes local automobile dealer Denny Hecker.

    Insiders say there are just four major investors, including Glen Taylor, in the Timberwolves owner's group to buy the Vikings, and one of them initially considered becoming general partner of his own group. But at the NFL's suggestion, that investor has joined Taylor.

    Taylor is considering adding a block of investors to his group for those who want to be part of the package, but for a much lower percentage.

    I just read in the sports section today that Emmit Smith has announced his retirement, and he is joining Reggie Fowlers coallition to purchase the team from Red! I want Emmit to own part of the team! He is the kinda guy that would actually spend money, and pay good players to play, unlike some owners that we know...:cough: RED :cough:...
    As long as he's doing something besides commentating for CBS (shudder).

    holy schnikees...that is crazy. I think Bennett will end up going there. I think we should package him and our first round pick in return for their first rounder. That would be a great trade.

    Conflicting reports....... Emmitt hasn't ruled out playing next year if someone offers, but if not he wants to sign a one day deal and retire a Cowboy.

    I doubt if Zona will trade for Bennett...They have a high pick and with Benson, Cadilac Williams, and the other Auburn Back, they could go in that direction. I would think they would take bennett for the right price however. I dont want Bennett to go anywhere and would hope they ship off Smokey Smith to go smoke his Bud down in the dry heat

    I was wondering why I hadn't heard anything on ESPN or the NFL network.
