    Michael Jenkins Makes Sense For The Vikings

    Michael Jenkins
    #12 WR
    Atlanta Falcons
    2010 STATS
    Rec41
    Yds505
    TD2
    Avg12.3
    Long43
    YAC81
    The Atlanta Falcons released Jenkins on Friday morning, and already many people around the NFL are linking him to the Vikings because offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave used to be the Falcons' quarterbacks coach. That means Jenkins will know the Vikings offense and be ready to step in right away when newly signed free agents are able to begin practicing Aug. 4.

    To be clear, Jenkins is a much different receiver than Rice. He's a classic possession type, with dependable hands and a good work ethic. He's not going to make plays happen downfield on his own, but he'll be in the place that Donovan McNabb (or Christian Ponder) expects him to be.

    I have no inside knowledge a deal is imminent. It's just one that makes a lot of sense for both sides.

    It would be very disappointing if this becomes their answer to the loss of Rice.

    I live in GA and have many friends who are Falcon fans, while there not torn up about lossing Jenkins they do have reservations on Julio Jones since most recievers take 3 yrs before they get it.

    Hes a dependable WR not going to win you games on his own but will get key 1st down when needed. Id not hate the signing but Hes not gonna lite it up either, A good option on the outside to have our Playmaker WR harvin to be back into the slot.

    Can't be any more disappointing than Chillys answer to Moss leaving. Hank Baskett.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    He'd be a good guy to replace Camarillo if he goes. I still want Floyd, Jones or Edwards in that order if I had my pick of WRs.

    I like Michael Jenkins in the mix, but if they bring him in here and don't land a James Jones or Malcolm Floyd type as well, then it will likely not be enough.

    Silly yutz reporter. Thinking Sydney was capable of making plays downfield. He obviously hasn't seen his 40 time.

    Re: Michael Jenkins Makes Sense For The Vikings

    If you go back and read the last three paragraphs closely, you’ll discover that the only season Jenkins, Musgrave and Stewart were all in Atlanta together was Jenkins most productive campaign in terms of TDs.
    Vikings A Suitor For WR Michael Jenkins?

    Would help to have someone on the roster that not only understands the scheme but was productive not only in it, but in the role Rice played for us.

    Just saying.

    Still have my fingers crossed on Floyd at this point as it seems they aren't even looking at Plax.

    I don't think anyone ever said that Rice didn't make plays downfield. I think the point that was trying to be made was that Rice wasn't gonna run a 8 or a 9 route in the time a deep threat guy would.

    Given time, anyone can run a 8 or a 9 route but thats not how one is effective. One is effecitve when you can out run the CB and even the S who is giving help over the top.

    Rice never could do that unless of course the QB scrambled around for his life and gave him the time.
