    Vikings sign Newman

    Can't say I'm real excited. This guy looks to have had two decent seasons as a LB. He played his first 4 seasons at Buffalo (during some point, I'm sure, under Cotrell) and looks to be more of a prototypical 3-4 LB. I read somewhere (maybe it was Atlanta's fan site) that he doesn't have great lateral speed. He is more of a pass-rushing LB.

    I guess he could be OK as depth, but I hope we don't have to start the guy. Falcons fans weren't crying over him being cut in April after having signed a 3 year deal with them in the 2003 offseason.

    Could be a good signing for us, looked at his stats and they where not that bad, hopefully he can add some leadership to our LB core. God knows we need it

    Nice pick-up for the Vikes LB core. We need as many LBs as we can get in my opinion. I would like to see Trotter or Gildon too, but who knows who will prosper in this seasons Vikes D. Welcome Kieth Newman! :cheers:
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    I wouldn't expect to see them sign another big named linebacker...
