    I believe that this is his last year of his contract.

    Re: Nate Burleson

    I think he will be a restricted free agent after this season. So the Vikes would still have options to keep him (franchise tag) assuming that a deal doesn't get done. However, with Zygi in charge now, and their willingness to work out a deal with Daunte, I'm sure there is no reason to worry about Nate getting what he deserves.

    I figure they would sign a 3rd rounder to at least a 4 year deal, if not 5. I'm guessing if he would be a FA next year we would have heard about it.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    i will be pissed if nate is not in purple and gold next year, but im sure he will sign and will also get some big bucks because he deserves way more than what he is making right now

    Don't worry. He will sign for sure next year. How could he give up a shot at a 2nd Super Bowl?

    That is correct. He will have only been in the league for 3 years, so he will be a restricted FA. To be an unrestricted FA, you need to have been in the league for 4 years.

    This is why brian westbrook reported to Eagles TC today, so he wouldn't lose that 4th year that would make him an unrestricted FA next offseason. If he missed more TC time, he would have had to go through another year as a restricted FA(by rule in his contract), before he could be unrestricted.
