    Vikings add veteran center Joe Berger

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vi...129662868.html

    The Vikings waived third-year backup center Jon Cooper this afternoon, and announced the signing of six-year veteran center Joe Berger.

    Berger started 14 games at center for the Miami Dolphins last year. Berger survived the Dolphins' final cut this year, but then was released when they added -- get this -- former Viking Ryan Cook.

    Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said, at the time, he viewed Cook as an upgrade.

    Berger might be one of the smarter players in the NFL. He graduated magna cum laude from Michigan Tech with an engineering degree.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    It really scares me that is says Tony Sparano views Cook as an upgrade to this guy. To me, that is the ultimate insult to an offensive lineman. However, I post on the big Dolphins board a little bit, and they said that they think we will like him over here. Not to mention that Tony Sparano has been very wrong when it comes to veteran lineman. I'm not overly optimistic about this move. But he can't be much worse than John Sullivan. Especially if he's just a depth guy. I refuse to believe that he is worse than Ryan Cook until I see it with my own eyes lol.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I just made a thread over at the Phins forum. Asking them their honest opinions on Berger. Since nobody here has probably seen him play very much. I joined over there to give them my opinions on Ryan Cook. Here's the link if you want to hear their input.

    Dolphins fans are making me feel much better about the signing! Supposedly he is a great depth guy. Not a great starter, but can start if need be. He can also be a serviceable back-up at guard.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Isn't that what they thought about Cook too?
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    In their defense, they didn't know anything about Cook. Just what the homer Vikes beat writers said about him (Versatility, etc...). I schooled them about him though lol. They know now And none of them have any faith in Sparano's ability to put together a good O-line.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    One man's trash is another man's treasure I guess.

    I've never been a big garage sale guy myself, but hey my sister finds gems at these places.

    Sad for Coop's as he is a good guy, have talked to him a fair bit on Twitter (he follows me!), so sad to see him waived.
