    Free Agent Frenzy!! Or is it...?

    The NFL Network has all day coverage, and has pulled out all their coverage stars to deal with all the moves being made today.

    So far, the Vikings has done nothing; I'm hoping that changes, there are quite a few players that would immediately help without having to go through the learning curve all the rookies from the draft will.

    I figured a thread devoted to the next day or 3 was in order... we'll see.

    Looks to be a good signing and looks like we have a true NT on the line. Liking the sound of this
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Nice pickup. Now please get a good CB. This defense needs so much help.

    Yup, hadn't heard much about Joseph but it looks like we've at least got a nice piece for our DL. Good signing.

    I was hoping for more, dammit! We have a few holes here that really should be filled by veteran talent, due to the learning curve. Unless you are a Watkins or Hayden type player, CBs and WRs need the first year to "catch up" to the NFL game speed. As such, I was hoping for at LEAST one CB from FA, and perhaps a SS.

    Let's hope today is the day we make our moves...

    As for the title of this thread, it has been for other teams. Let me ask some questions

    1. Do the Vikings have money to spend?
    2. Do they have starters that wouldn't start for any other teams?
    3. Do they have a horrible defense?
    4. Are there players in FA that would vastly improve this team?
    5. Are they doing much to improve the team?

    I have 4 yeses, and 1 no... Can you guess mine? I'm sure they are the same as most of yours.

    Stop it, the team isn't going to be totally reformed in 1 day of FA and the idea of signing a bunch of high dollar FA's to solve the problem just says that you still have a dysfunctional organization.
