    Longwell cut?

    On KFAN right now they are reporting that the Vikings cut Ryan Longwell...

    I realize there's a good chance he probably wasn't gonna be the difference between making or not making the playoffs this season but it only takes less than 2 million off the books and he already got a signing bonus last season. Doesn't make a lot of sense.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    No problem with it here. I like him a lot and he's been a great kicker for us, but we are in a rebuilding mode. If we were a contender then I would disagree with this move but we need to start preparing for our next kicker, be it Blair Walsh or someone we get next year. I won't miss reading Shortwell, that's for sure.

    Money savings and youth movement. The usual suspects.

    Spielman. The usual suspect.

    The kid can definitely boot them out of the endzone, but Rick better hope the kid can kick FG's a lot lot better than he did last year.

    We should have expected this, except perhaps not so soon. I found it hard to believe that we would have kept 2 kickers on the roster.

    Lets hope he's not the next Doug Brien for us.

    Imagine that. Our GM is the suspect for a player release.
