    Vikings resign Ross

    The Viking trying to shore up their secondary resigned Derek Ross and waived Ralph Brown from the 53 man roster.

    Hopefully his knee has improved and will give us a better option in the dime package than either Brown or Rushen Jones.

    Hopefully he has decided that he doesn't want to not be a headcase, and comes in looking for a chance to help the team.

    I liked Ross when he was here before & wasn't sure why he was released. He and Winfield got along and worked well together.

    He didnt pass his physical, he must be healthy. I was pissed when they let him go, curious to see what he can do. I like this.

    Vikings resign Ross

    I think that I would take on almost anybody to help the secondary (well, not Denard Walker) because we have to do something to stop the bleeding!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Vikings resign Ross

    This was an article from Viking Update.

    They had reported that the Viking signed Ross, and another friend confirmed he got the same information from Winter Park.

    But my next post will be from the Pioneer Press saying that Ross is not available until Wednesday and that he is trying out for the Bronco's!




    MONDAY NOTES
    * Who’s that fourth-string running back? Mewelde Moore made some believers Sunday. Not only did he rush 20 times for 92 yards, but he caught 12 passes for 90 yards in the receiving game. Not too shabby for the new steal of the draft.
    * A concern for the Vikes has to remain the level to which opposing offenses can attack the passing game. After halftime, David Carr threw for 288 yards – totally unacceptable under any conditions.
    * The Vikings had 510 total yards Sunday.
    * In the first half of Sunday’s game, the Vikings held the ball for 20:33 of the 30 minutes.
    * Sunday was the 33rd straight game in which the Vikings had 300 yards or more of total offense. It has surpassed the record set by the 1998-2000 Vikings and was only interrupted once in the interim — a Joe Dimaggio streak if there ever has been one.
    * Houston was arguably the loudest outdoor site for NFL games ever. The Vikes had six false start penalties — three on rookie Nat Dorsey alone. In three home games this year, the Texans have had 18 false start calls – most in the NFL by far.
    * Cory Withrow suffered a knee injury in overtime that forced the Vikes to put Matt Birk into the lineup. He was on the field for three plays — the last being the touchdown to Marcus Robinson that ended the game.
    * Keenan Howry sustained a dislocated shoulder Sunday and could be on the shelf for several weeks.
    * The Vikings re-signed CB Derek Ross, who will replace Ralph Brown on the 53-man roster.
    * Terrance Shaw suffered a turf toe injury, but, prior to that, made a couple of big plays to help out the secondary in the nickel and dime packages.
    * In the first three games, Darren Bennett had a total of five punts. He had eight on Sunday.
    * Randy Moss played in is 100th game Sunday.
    * The Vikes are the only team in the NFL without an interception. Last year, the Vikings led the league almost all year in that category.
