    Holcomb Cut

    http://nc.startribune.com/blogs/vikings/?p=1360


    The Vikings cut veteran quarterback Kelly Holcomb today, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Holcomb was acquired in a trade from the Eagles late in training camp last year for a sixth-round pick in the 2009 draft. He started three games before suffering a neck injury on Oct. 28.

    EDIT: Also mentioned in the article is that Tony Richardson is not expected to be brought back.

    Re: Holcomb Cut

    Cleo Lemon and Trent Green, who were both with the Dolphins, have been mentioned as potential candidates to sign with Minnesota.

    Who mentioned them? Why would we want these guys?

    I wouldn't mind Cleo Lemon too much. At least he has some starting experience, and actually did pretty well, considering the team he was playing with. I think Trent Green should just call it a career though.

    Re: Holcomb Cut

    You would think they would have cut Bollinger before Holcomb.
    Maybe Holcomb's neck injury is more severe than we thought???

    Not re-signing Richardson doesn't make any sense to me.
    I know he is getting up in age, but who do we expect that will perform better than he did.
    I'm sure AD wouldn't mind having him around for another season or two.

    I thought it was in this years draft. So we'll now have two in the 6th with the one from Jacksonville expected to arrive for TWill?

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Holcomb Cut

    I could care less about holcomb, but losing Richardson is a big deal. He made the pro-bowl and the vikings had the number one rushing offense, why would they break up that combo? I am really starting to wonder if the ownership and F/O are really willing to spend the money it takes.

    Looks like my plan is coming together.
    ;D

    That just opens up a roster for a QB (KH) to be drafted and opens a roster spot for Mills (T-rich).
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Bleh, in all likelyhood both picks will only be training camp fodder anyways.

    He were due a $150,000 roster bonus they probably didn't feel like paying.

    Re: Holcomb Cut

    I'd like to see Richardson brought back if only for another season while we draft a replacement FB this to learn from him. Richardson is a good player who still has a lot to contribute to the team IMHO.
