    Fonoti

    Is Fonoti going to play for us next year? I haven't seen much on how he is healing up. I sure hope so. I think the Fonoti/Birk combination on the line will be awesome.

    He's a free agent this year, but I personally think he will resign for at least a one year deal. He doesnt want to go into free agency after his worst year where he played about 3 snaps. We could get him cheap this year, in which case he would be able to prove himself to the league and get a big contract next year with either us or some other team.

    I'm too looking forward to him coming back - he's a Pro-Bowl calibre player and it'd be a shame to see him leave without really gettin to see him.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    We won't know anything about any players staying or going until the draft/FA or soon before.

    I think Childress will opt out for undersized, quick feet guards that can pull. I see Fowler retained as a backup to the center & guard positions, while the Vikings seek guards in the draft and free agency. But then again, Fonoti is an option at the right price.

    I heard that the old coaching staff basically said that he was big and lazy. But he has to have some skill because he was an all pro. I really hope he can come back and be a great player for us becuase our offensive line needs all the help it can get.

    I don't know. The west coast offense is a pocket passing offense. You need mountians that can't be pushed back off the line all that easy. Usually the WC runs it up the gut when they run. :smile:

    It also depends on whether they implemnt the zone blocking scheme Denver/Atlanta runs or the traditional 49ers/Packers version.
