    today on jim rome there was a great interview with krob and rome. rome totally praised him for what he did this year and how he came back. krob talked about how the after he got cut from the dui, he figured out that he must go to rehab to get his life back, not just his football career. pretty good interview. anyone else hear it?
    Did he say anything about the Viking organization or negotiations?

    Fred Smoot.

    But dont get me wrong I like Brisinski. The Vikes are alot better off then most teams in regards to the salry cap, howerver If the CBA is not straitend out quickly the NFL will turn into MLB which sucks.

    That headline on the article was very misleading. It made it sound the worst when, in fact, the article said chances were good that he would be resigned. Another typical press botch job trying to stir up controversy.

    Man, people busting on Smoot again... Give him a chance, he'll show you. He played beastly in washington, he was just hurt this past year. But I kind of hope we keep k-rob. I think he will bloom next season and become a solid number 1 type of reciever.

    You are right on on both accounts Euphman06.

    Here are my thought regarding K-Rob. Had a CBA agreement been reached, the vikes would have given him the contract he was asking for. But unless something magical happens in the next 25 minutes, there will be no agreement, and the $$$ flowing into free agency will be extremely limited. The odds are that no team will be able to offer K-Rob what he wanted, and he will be back with the Vikes next year.

    A good move on the Vikings part, but I hope it does not create any animosity with K-Rob.

    He didn't bust on Smoot he simply stated we overpaid for him, and we did. Looking at the available CB's who played far better if not the same and got paid less, Lucas, Dyson, the list goes on......we overpaid for Smoot.

    Agreed
    I second that, Pac (and Del)!!!

    I also agree, I would not over pay for him right now! If no agreement is reached on the collective bargaining agreement I think the Vikes will be able to keep Koren. The market is going to be tight, and if Bloody Thursday happens and teams have to cut players to get under the cap, and with very few teams having cap room to add high priced players. Koren could find a tight market and we might be able to resign him for less than what it would take now, if the CBA gets worked out we will probably lose him in free agency.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Its damn near impossible to not overpay some players, because you can't predict their production. Other players we have over paid for include: Rosenthal and M-Rob.

    I agree Del. He was a big spark for us this year, but he hasn't proven that he's a top flight reciever, and that's the kind of cash he wants. It would stink if he were to leave, but I wouldn't curse anyone over it. The only problem I have is that it leaves a hole at kick returner.
