    how vikings can fix defense

    Tha vikings should use that first round pick on Justin Gilbert and try and sign free agents like Brent Grimes, Alterraun Verner, Taylor Mays, Brian Orakpo, Karlos Dansby,Sam Shields and Michael Johnson just sum key free agents that would boost our defense.

    Sign Jairus Byrd. Get a good corner to start. Draft a future Stud LB.

    Jarius Byrd would be a pretty sick signing. It'd allow Smith to move into more of a SS/nickel type role (he can still play safety, but we can take advantage of his versatiliy.

    I think the LB position is our biggest problem (again) heading into this year. That's why I think if we don't have Bridgewater/Manziel fall to us the smart move is to take Mosley. It would allow us to cut the Chad, sign a FA that would be more worth an $8M paycheck, improve our pass coverage ability in the LB core and get younger all at once.

    Great idea, we would have one of the scariest S tandem in the game. Then sign Alterraun Verner, a young shut down corner from the Titians. The Sea Chickens proved that a great back end can get you far. I would love our back end to look like this; CB Verner, S Bird, S Smith, CB Rhodes. You can then draft Barr out of UCLA and have our pass rusher for our D also or trade down and get Nix, a run stuffing NT.

    Another option would be to draft Gilbert at CB then it would be Gilbert, Bird, Smith and Rhodes. And in the FA market go after Pickett or Raji for the NT pos.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Getting rid of Alan Williams and Joe Woods should help tremendously.

    Then add in some 3-4 with Floyd, Guion, and Evans down, and Robison and Griffin at end linebacker. And yes this team needs a stud linebacker that can make some splash plays. Athletic, a big hitter and can cover some ground.

    Both are officially gone according to the article on twin cities website. Alan Williams will be the new DB's coach with the Lions, and Woods has been dismissed and Gray will take over his spot. Good times.
