    Vikings: Don't print that

    Posted on Sun, Apr. 09, 2006

    [size=18px]DON'T PRINT THAT[/size]

    ) People close to Vikings owner Zygi Wilf say the team has no plans to renegotiate starting quarterback Brad Johnson's contract for $1.2 million this year even though Johnson was a backup QB when he signed it.

    ) Wilf, although considered a multibillionaire, has managed to escape Forbes' annual list of wealthiest Americans. A little birdie says that's because his wealth is spread among many family members and not directly connected to him.

    ) The Vikings say center Matt Birk's contract for $4 million this year will remain the same rather than be renegotiated after he missed last season because of hip labrum surgery.

    ) It was the agent for Steve Hutchinson, not the Vikings, who initiated the "poison pill" contract concept that led to the free-agent signing of the highly regarded offensive guard from the Seattle Seahawks. The signing was not a surprise to the NFL, which had been apprised of the move by the Vikings.

    ) Look for the Gophers men's basketball team to sign a junior college or prep school forward soon.

    ) If new Vikings coach Brad Childress and KSTP-TV can't make a deal on a Sunday TV show, look for the station to hire a front-line player as a regular Sunday headliner.

    ) It will be surprising if the Timberwolves return to rights-holder KFAN-AM next season.

    ) The key battle for a new ballpark for the Twins in Hennepin County will be in front of the House Tax Committee, probably next week.

    ) There are no plans for Vikings limited partner Reggie Fowler to increase his stock holding in the team.

    ) Eden Prairie, Champlin Park, Elk River and Kimball high schools are expected to have boys basketball coaching vacancies this summer. Overheard

    ) First-year Timberwolves coach Dwane Casey, asked how he is doing these days with his faltering team: "I'm hanging tough. The alternative is six feet under, and I'm not ready for that."

    I'm so glad we got Zygi. I just don't think Fowler was ready for "prime time" ownership.

    If that turns out to be true, I bet it ends up being D-Sharpz.

    I don't think Zygi is stupid enough to risk losing Brad because of this. Bad rumor!

    I don't know if it's a bad rumor. If it was false it means the Vikings have plans to renegotiate.

    If Brad is happy with what he's making & isn't asking for more money, why would the Vikings force the issue?

    If this wasn't true we would have lost in Seattles Appeal. Or at least thats what I had read going into that weekend.
