    Onterrio Smith Will be Welcomed Back by Vikings

    Onterrio Smith: Will be Welcomed Back by Vikings
    RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com
    Sunday, April 9, 2006

    Update: Smith (drug suspension) is eligible for reinstatement by the league next month and the Vikings say they will welcome back to the team. "The way this coaching staff responds to players, this would be the right environment for him to move his career forward," owner Zygi Wilf told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "But all that's subject to his reinstatement."

    Recommendation: Smith is a wild card for the 2006 fantasy season as it's hard to know what kind of shape he'll be in physically or mentally after missing a season due to third violation of the league's drug policy. However, if he's reinstated it looks like the coaching staff may let him contend for a sizable role.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm HAPPY about this.

    Onterrio Smith has always been my favorite RB and I'm glad were giving him a 2nd chance.

    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    I'll be glad if they don't cut him right away after he gets reinstated. Can't hurt to let him meet the new staff. He's got alot of talent and it would be a shame to have to let him go.

    I'm gonna go ahead and say that NO ONE KNOWS. Just the other day there was a report that he was going to be cut.

    That other report was just BS speculation, and most posters took it as if it where coming out of Childress's mouth. I think it would be a mistake not to bring him back. Its low risk, high reward type thing.

    I agree. He's a good talent but it's hard to say how he will react. He needs a controlled environment and the Vikings coaching staff seems to be able to provide that. I wouldn't mind him back and it would save us from worrying about that position right now. Not a high risk move.

    I say let him come back, even if he does hit the gonge again then they can cut him, but if he doesn't he could help out alot. there's nothing to lose by at least giving him a chance.

    Gotta see what the kid can do. We should get first crack at him anyway. Hopefully Koren can keep him in check. I'd hate to just dump his talent.

    It dosnt hurt to have Depth, if lord forbid Taylor gets hurt we're back to our same RB line up as last year. And that couldnt get the job done,I hope we alow him to come back. He might be a idoit ,but hes a talented idoit who hopefully learned his lesson.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!
