    Free Agent Targets

    Which free agents should the Vikings target hard? Please, name just a few, as the Vikings cannot bring in everyone.

    On defense:

    Greg Hardy, - DE - Carolina Panthers

    Linval Joseph - DT/NT - New York Giants

    The Vikings would do well to go after a veteran cornerback, but which player is a good bet to go after that would actually sign. Some good players may not want to come here with a new staff. Then again, some may want a fresh start.

    Is Michael Johnson worth the payday he will want? He gets the tackles and holds down the edge well, but his sack production has not been great. Johnson did not dominate a game from the edge this season. Johnson had no multiple sack games (3.5 total), 56 tackles and three stuffs.

    Is Johnson better than Everson Griffen with 27 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and three stuffs with limited playing time?

    Greg Hardy was a monster in 2013. He had three triple-sack games (15 total), 59 tackles and five stuffs.

    I agree, we NEED a pass rushing DE, to take the pressure off of the secondary.

    Verner is a good all-around player. He knows how to defense a pass and can break on the ball.

    I like it.

    What about linebacker?

    Brian Orakpo is getting the headlines, but would Karlos Dansby work in either a 3-4 or 4-3?

    Considering the guys Spielman has brought in on defense over the past few seasons, I would not say ANYBODY.

    A guard? Likely.
    A backup RB if Toby Gerhart signs elsewhere.
    Wide receiver? Not sure, the Vikings actually have depth there.

    Karlos Dansby would be a nice player on our defense and we could look at New England WR Julian Edelman, he would be a nice pick up for our Offense or WR Jeremy Maclin frm Philly

    didn't mean "anybody" figuratively, I guess somebody who is decent, and wont break the bank or that want stupid money..WR depth?.. will Simpson be gone? does Webb actually count? haha I am also curious about the Guard from the Fins'..Martin? is it? the one involved with Incognito..or is he blackballed at this point because of the bullying BS?
