    say it ain't so corey

    Say It Ain't So

    Viking Update Staff - Scout.com
    May 14, 2005 at 4:36am ET
    According to a national source, Vikings DB Corey Chavous is a June 1 salary cap casualty. According to a team source, Chavous may be a little salty about "settling" for $1.9 million. Whether or not that's true will be determined Monday.

    On draft weekend, a suspicious commentary on the selection of defensive back Dustin Fox was "analyzed" by a national publication's draft website -- saying the Vikings were prepared to cut loose Corey Chavous . A quick "hey, you" to the assembled masses in the media war room dismissed that rumor.

    But, as the next developmental camp is set to begin Monday, VU has been told that the report might be correct - but not for the reason one would think. Apparently, Chavous wants more than the $1.9 million he is currently due. If that's the case, the writer may be right. If Chavous decides to make an issue of his contract, the team will move on.

    With Brian Russell gone and little in the way of serious depth, Chavous is playing a dangerous game if he tries to push the buttons on the organization. It's a "no-win" situation that could make a Nostradamus out of a moron. Show up, Corey.

    SATURDAY NOTES
    ** Brian Williams still hasn't signed his $1.43 million one-year tender. Options? That's up to his agent. Expect to see a signing soon. No need being the example for the rest of the team to quake about.
    ** Daunte Culpepper will be honored Tuesday, Sept. 13 with the Congressional Caucus on Adoption Award in Washington D.C. VU applauds the honor and hopes that Daunte's mom is treated with equal or more respect.

    I think when it gets down to it Chavous will except his contract and will not be cut, if he does threaten a serious holdout though, I would not be surprised to see us part ways with him.

    Yeh, I agree. The Vikes won't put up with this. If Chavous pushes this too much, I would not be surprised by a Release.

    Agreed. The next thing is other players will try to do the same. If management lets it slide, we could have a lot of problems on our hands. Something that a cohesive team does not need.

    Let me ask a question: Who is going to pay Corey Chavous more than $1.9 million a year? At this point in his career, the guy is an intelligent, but athleticly limited player who's coming off a mediocre season. Between free agency and the draft, almost every team in the NFL is already set at the safety position, so it's not like there's some huge market for his talents.

    C'mon, Corey. Why not take a nice-sized paycheck to be a starter for a team that has a realistic chance of going to the Super Bowl?
