    Vikes Draft, FA, Cap 2007

    From the Pioneer Press, I guess we will have quite a bit of money next year to spend on signings.

    Next season, when the NFL's salary cap increases from $102 million to $109 million, the Vikings are expected to be in the top five teams for most cap space.

    No info just the one line. It's way too early to worry about this, but it's nice to know we can build on an already pretty talented team. Buy some recievers maybe?

    Re: Salary Cap for next year

    This is kind of funny.
    Most members on here said to me that we didn't need any more WR's at the beginning of the season.
    Now look at the post on here.
    We don't have any with any above average WR, so we are going to have to draft some.
    Let's go after Calvin Johnson, Jarrett Hicks etc.

    I'll admit I were one of those. And I'm not backing down on it yet either.

    I think TWill can still come around. MRob has shown two weeks back that he is a red zone thread.

    I'm a bit disapointed in Taylors drops though. I really liked how he played last year, and I'll expect him to improve. Also I'm still disapointed that we don't use Wiggins more over the middle.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Though I started too late to get into that discussion, I probably would have agreed with them. Now not so sure... But if we were to go after a wide receiver I would rather see us use the cap room "buy" a proven receiver than a rookie who needs to 'adjust' to the NFL. Most receivers take a few years (see thread on TWILL) to get it going and make significant contributions.

    Actually, a lot of members were interested in looking into different WRs.
    Just not the headcases that were floating around like Porter.
    I have been extremely disappointed in Travis Taylor this year...I was bragging him up to fill in the #1 slot until T-Will got up to snuff.
    That has never transpired.
    Right now the team appears to have a bunch of #3s.
    I still think they can turn it around, especially if they get a decent receivers coach on board to work out the kinks.
    One of a plethora of problems on the O right now.

    [size=13pt]VIKINGS' SPACE VALUABLE[/size]

    The Vikings are expected to be nearly $35 million under next year's NFL salary cap of $109 million. And if they release several higher-paid veterans, as expected, their salary cap room could increase to more than $45 million next spring.

    That would allow the Vikings to buy or trade for a top pass rusher, at least one top offensive lineman and an impact receiver.

    A chunk of the Vikings' salary cap space, though, is expected to be used to re-sign defensive tackle Kevin Williams, whose contract is up after the 2007 season.

    ) It's clear that owner Zygi Wilf, seeking public approval for a new stadium in downtown Minneapolis, will have to make some headline player acquisitions to keep the Vikings relevant and avoid TV blackouts in 2007. It would be the same strategy the NHL's Wild utilized last summer to keep that team a viable buy.

    ) The Vikings' regular-season Metrodome schedule next year is expected to include Philadelphia, Washington, Oakland and San Diego.
