Gotta say I'm with Mar here. Williams has faded the past couple seasons, and moving him NOW - while he still has value - would be a smart move...which is why we won't.
As for the headline, geez, going all out in a contract year? Who'd a thunk it?
For my money it's time to rethink the D-Line and bring in some fresh blood to the middle.

I wouldn't mind seeing him stay a viking for the right price. I wouldn't think he would demand alot of money since he was already paid nicely once for his services. On the other hand moving him now could possibly bring in some good younger talent, but that all depends on how other teams value him. What could the Vikings get for KWill via trade vs what it would cost to resign him? That is going to be the million dollar question this season.

The Vikings may want to start looking at JA in the same light before it is too late as well.

One thing though, we've been bringing in fresh blood, problem is, they aren't the right kindof guy.
I think Guion was a great pick to replace K-dubb and this is the year he should show if he can handle it. The should have drafted a guy to replace Phat Pat and he should already be in place.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Ol Ricky will take care of that one after this season.
We are finally getting into a position with the cap where we may be able to pick up a good free agent or two next year. I really liked the method they used to follow, picking up a good player coming off his rookie contract. It worked well with Pat, Antoine, Jared, Hutch. Maybe a draw with Shianco. Not so well with Bernard, but that was a bad year to be looking for a #1 receiver. We have been hamstrung for two years in FA. Maybe we will be able to get back in that game.Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

12/23/2006: Signed a five-year, $33.24 million contract. The deal includes $16 million guaranteed. 2012: $7 million, 2013-2014: $7 million (+ $500,000 workout bonuses), 2015: Free Agent
I guess his number is a bit high. I would think that if a trade was set up, the team gaining K-dubb would work with his agent to do something for 3 years so assumption on my part the last of this contract wouldn't be an issue.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I think I asked you in another thread, who/what contracts are hurting us right now. Bryzcheapski, for all the stuff I've hacked on him for, did a good job of keeping us out of CAP hell.
I'm not so sure we see many FA's signed even going into next year. I think they will go ahead and keep doing the "Build through the draft" process like we were doing in 06 and 07, see how those guys work out and then, (like you said) plug holes with cats coming off their first contract.
Again, that was what was working in 06 and 07 and to some extent, 08.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
