    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    I agree there might be a message there but I don't think it's a blatant "Williamson is gone" as the article seems to suggest.
    They're bringing in players and we'll see how they do and the staff will go from there.
    That being said, hopefully all of the criticism from this past year as well as the new recruits serve to get Williamson motivated to really earn a #1 WR spot on the Vikes.

    Hopefully that Nike thing worked out as well.

    Maybe not right away, but Allison may be able to step in in case of injury and light it up like a certain Saint did.

    I'm not saying he'll be the savior, but alot of our young kids have alot of talent.

    Also, let's not forget about Jason Carter. T-Jack loves to throw to him.
    because he's had soooo much playing time
    TJ and Carter spent the majority of their tie together on the practice and scouting squad.
    Of all the receivers, TJ is probably the most familiar with Carter, and that does go a long ways.
    I believe I said that back when The Future was starting his first game in GB last season.
    And that Jason Carter should start the game because of that.

    Stupid Childress.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think this guy is way off base!
    I don't see Troy being cut in training camp, but I do see this being his final year to prove himself to the Viking's organization and their fans.
    If he struggles like he did last year he is gone at the end of next season.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    If you have an experienced team, you go into training camp with a number of guarantees. With the Vikes not having a lot of experienced receivers, they are coming in needing to fill all of their receiving positions. Therefore everything is up for grabs. Troy Williamson has not done a lot to prove he belongs so far. This could be the "defining" moment in this guy's career. There will be a lot of pressure on him at camp. I really hope he comes through for us!

    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    NFL. com's Adam Schefter reports Troy Williamson may not make it out of training camp with the Vikings.

    Schefter points to the Vikings' selections of Sidney Rice, Aundrae Allison, and Chandler Williams in April's draft as clues about Williamson's future.
    But Williamson would be pricy to cut so if he can do anything positive, expect the former No.
    7 overall pick to remain a backup in Minnesota.

    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    Hey, if the Vikings cut this guy then we should sign him.
    He could help mentor and teach our young WR's.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    That's the way I see it as well.

    Last year he made all the catches in training camp and had a good camp despite his hip abcess surgery.

    He seemed to cloose his eyes during games when he
    could get hit.

    It's psychological IMO. He could overcome this!

    I think he gets one last chance. I hope he does well.

    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    Either option certainly makes sense to me.

    If T-Will isn't better than any of the other . . . much lower cost . . . receivers, then it makes sense to cut him.
    He's not earning a paycheck.

    If T-Will improves and becomes the receiver the Vikings need, then he'll be on the team and earning his way.

    Either way, it's up to T-Will to earn a spot.

    Re: Schefter: Williamson cut before training camp ends.

    either way, i wouldn't care to see him get cut

    NFL is about producing and if he ain't producing, than he should be cut. So what they drafted him seventh overall.
