    Is this because of his back?

    It probably means that there are some guys out there due to be FA's this year that we already have our eyes on. That is definitely a good sign.

    VIKES TO CUT ROBINSON

    The Minnesota Vikings could be giving receiver Marcus Robinson an early Christmas present.
    According to Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Robinson has been told that he will be released.

    With only one week left in the season, and the Vikings on the hook for the final game check if Robinson elects to take his once-per-career termination pay, the move makes little sense to us, since it puts Robinson on the open market.
    Why not just finish the season and cut him loose then?

    Since the release comes after the trading deadline, Robinson will be required to pass through the waiver system.
    If he clears waivers, he'll become a free agent.
    If he is claimed, the Vikings are off the hook for the final paycheck, and the new team picks up his contract.

    And Robinson could draw interest from several playoff teams.
    He starred several years ago for the Bears, and the Eagles don't yet have a distinguished corps of pass-catchers.
    The Patriots definitely have needs at the position, and the Colts recently lost Brandon Stokley for the season.


    The fact that Robinson is under contract through 2007 could make him an attractive target for a non-playoff team with needs at the position.
    The Packers are light at wideout, as are the Lions.
    The Rams might also be interested, since head coach Scott Linehan was the Vikings' offensive coordinator when Robinson arrived in 2004.
    By putting in a claim for Robinson, the new team gets a chance to eyeball him through the offseason.
    As long as he is released before the first regular season game next year, he'd be owed no salary for 2007.

    Re: M. Robinson will be released

    This move kinda makes sense to me, but I just hope that he doesn't sign with Green Bay.. I understand the fact that the Vikings will go after some profile FA WR's that they currently have their eye on, and that makes me very happy..

    Like I said though, I hope he doesn't sign with the cheese.. If he were to do that, then they would have both Koren, and Marcus Robinson in the fold next season.. That might not be a good thing for the Vikings..
