    Well you need a good QB period. You dont have to build around him but he has to fit the scheme. Cutler will turn out great behind Brad for the year.

    whiteviking you rock! Yes' it's true Brad will not be around forever and yes it would be nice to build around a QB, I believe my guy Brad has proven his leadership capabilites and with a strong offensive line he'll be just fine until we're able to develop an young QB prospect.

    Is Johnson Next?

    Is Johnson Next?


    Brad Johnson By John Holler -- http://vikings.scout.com

    Date: Mar 24, 2006

    The Vikings have shown a lot of players the money during the last month. The same might be in line for Brad Johnson.

    The Vikings have taken advantage of their favorable salary cap position during the free agent period to help themselves at several positions. But, as coach Brad Childress proclaims the first wave of free agency a done deal, there may be another deal yet to be done.

    When the Vikings signed QB Brad Johnson, the intent was to have him as a backup for Daunte Culpepper -- in effect Daunte insurance. A year later, Culpepper is gone and Johnson heads into the 2006 season as the unquestioned leader of the offense.

    The deal Johnson signed is really no longer valid. He's not the backup. He's the starter and is deserving of starter's money. While nothing has been said outwardly, the Vikings shoudl be working to re-do Johnson's contract to put him more in line with the money veteran starters are paid as opposed to veteran backups.

    Over the next couple of weeks, the restructuring of his contract should start. Whether or not that actually happens is another matter. Unlike guys like Chad Pennington and Steve McNair, where the word "restructured" means taking much less money, Johnson should be in line for a bigger payday.

    Like it or not, Johnson is now the face of the franchise on offense. His pay stubs should reflect that.

    I like this attitude. I think he's worth more money and this will head off any future fight at training camp time about what's he's worth like Culpepper wanted to do last year. It also puts the management in the driver's seat!

    I think he should get a raise, being that he is the starter now

    Re: BJ should get a raise

    Brad should not get another red cent. For what, as a back up, it is your JOB to learn the plays and prepare to play when/if the QB goes down. At the end of last year, Brad was talking about leaving so he can start. Now he is a starter. Does Brad cut us a check if Culpepper plays the entire season. No, so why in the world would we give him some more guaranteed money. I am not oppossed to given him some incentives for production, not for simply starting.
