Unlike the Twin Cities' other pro sports teams, the Vikings go for big-time free agents, and they have been successful doing it.

Re: Thinking big has worked out for Vikings
I was kind of thinking about this earlier.... we haven't had any of our lower round draft picks really SURPRISE us by playing above their expectations... EJ was a second rounder but being as how he won the Butkis (sp?) award, I find it hard to consider him an overachiever....
Generally speaking we've done well in FA... Pat, Leber, AW, Sharper, JA, Hutch.
(Birk is one low rounder who outplayed his expectations)
