    Offer extended to Farwell

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/1013842.html

    • The Vikings extended a tender offer to exclusive rights free agent Heath Farwell, who led the team with 25 special teams tackles last season. Farwell, a linebacker, will receive a one-year deal worth $435,000.
    Glad to see this.
    Farwell was The Man on special teams last year.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I agree. He were great on ST.

    And actually so were Jason Glenn before he went down, so I hope they'll bring him back too.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I remember also in a couple pre-season games last year, when Farwell was put in to play, his name was being mentioned almost every other play it seemed.....Nice to see him staying for sure..


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Solid signing. Great way to solidify the ST. I also remember him getting some playing time during the pre season also. He played well too.

    I really like Farwell. Great STer. I like that our coaches aren't just letting good Fa's walk like in the past.

    I agree. Totally different then the past. They are acutally retaining key players and keeping them happy.

    Good to see. Gee, do you think the coaching staff might know what they are doing?

    Nice to see that Farwell will be sticking around for at least 1 more year.. That guy is awesome on ST's, and is solid as a backup LB.. Good move on the Vikings part..

    When I saw Farwell in person, I couldn't believe how small he was. I guess I just expected an NFL linebacker to be bigger. :-
