They can start by releasing Chris Cook and Josh Robinson
What is really sad is that the Vikings have not had a good secondary since Tony Dungy was the defensive coordinator
Smith and Rhodes are very good start... but need more then 2 guys and yes our secondary has always been an issue... kinda tired of it
the sick thing is that if we improve our secondary what we going to do to maintain out pass rush? Think about how bad our defense was this year then keep in mind we need to replace Jared Allen and Kevin Williams.... Its like the worst get worse... It would be foolish not to bring back Kevin Williams and have him play NT... Really how you going to makte the leagues worst D better when you are starting off by losing 2 border line hall of fame players? It isnt like these guys weren't producing...
Im 35, been following the Vikings since the mid/late 80's rarely in my time have i saw the Vikings with anything but a terrible secondary... enough is enough and its time for a change
Draft any of these CB's Justin Gilbert, Darqueze Dennard, Ekpre-Olomu, or Marcus Roberson and let Cook walk and use that money to sign Alterraun Verner, Aqib Talib, Sam Shields, Brent Grimes, or Vontae Davis any of these CB's. Would be nice to have
I say sign Kerry Rhodes. No reason guy is unemployed except that he is gay.
Take a look at Tillman. Hurt the Bears by taking their best corner. Play Robinson but for god sakes do not play him in the slot. He looked great on the outside.
A Defensive backfield of Smith - Rhodes - Rhodes and Tillman looks pretty good.
I liked what I saw in Shaun Prater at the end of the season. Then again, anything is an upgrade from Cook(ed).
Getting rid of Cook and Robinson is a good start. Luckily Cook is a free agent and if the Vikings aren't completely stupid, he is already gone.
How about Sam Shields of the Packers? He is a free agent and GB has a lot of free agents to worry about. Shields is a good DB that could fit in nicely here. I think the Vikings need to get a nice mixture of youth and veteran. You can't be a very good defense when you have all younger guys in your secondary. They need to focus on getting a franchise QB in rd 1 of the draft, then they can go defense and OL the rest of the way..
