    Kinda light for a LB. But I guess i do not get picking up a player and then releasing him the next day. Especially one that could provide depth on the OL at 2 positions

    Re: Vikings Sign Linebacker

    How much does it cost us in salary cap penalties to cut and release players like this daily, if at all?

    Re: Vikings Sign Linebacker

    what i read about this cooper guy is that he is really good on special teams but us really undersized for a linebacker, he has the size of a saftety and they say he has a hard time shedding his bloskers, especially tight ends..so mixed feelings on this but i still would of kept edwards..he was big and could play guard and tackle...

    Personaly I think it is a great signing, we got somebody who the coaches know, knows the sytem, and is not a former Eagle.

    Re: Vikings Sign Linebacker

    never known us make so many changes - the webmaster as vikings.com must be online permanently updating the roster !
    ;D
    Still would love to know the thinking behind this pickup, is it to bolster special teams or to add to the LB depth ?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
