    As long as we get Greenway in on time to me, I am not worried about Jackson being signed yet it like Rastak pointed out

    I suppose he could be trying get bonuses and escallators incase he starts next year and rocks. I still don't see his leverage though. Hell, if he sits out the Vikings aren't really affected this season much, it's not like he was slated to start or even play 2nd team. It would be nice to have him learning the pro game in this camp though.
    And personally I agree with him. I feel that if he is late a couple of weeks even it won't hurt him that much because I do not see him starting to play any real games for at least the next 2 or 3 years from now.
    That's exactly why he needs to get into camp. The best way to learn something is by doing it, and the only chance he'll get to go under center will be in training camp. A hold out would severely ritard his growth into the NFL.

    However, I strongly suspect that he'll be in camp on time, so this won't be an issue (just a gut feeling).

    Back to Ryan Cook.

    Like I said after the Draft I would not be surprised to see this guy play Tackle. I've watched him take out two lineman and a backer on a blitz more then once. He is NFL size already.

    Lombardi Award, Outland Trophy and Rimington Trophy (best center)...
    I don't get your emphasis on those awards, there, Del. Cook didn't win any of them.

    2005 Awards:
    Lombardi - AJ Hawk, LB, Ohio State
    Outland - Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota
    Rimington - Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota

    Ryan Cook was not a finalist for any of these awards.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    It was a cut and paste.
    He was nominated for them. The only important one was the BEST CENTER award. Which is what the discussion was about. Someone said they thought he was one of the best. He was. Especially coming on as a walk-on being nominiated for those awards is a big deal. I assumed it was obvious he didn't win the awards. Anyone who watches college football knows Lombardi went to Hawk.

    He was one of the best centers in the country. That was the point as it pertained to the conversation.
