    Vikings: Six players, four spots: Battle for safety is hot

    [size=13pt]Vikings: Six players, four spots: Battle for safety is hot[/size]

    Second-year man Greg Blue has four veterans with more experience ahead of him, but he relishes the competition.

    It is nice to see the depth at safety, I'm sure other teams are circling over Winter Park waiting for the cuts.
    Strong group.

    Trade bait, we could even get a extra draft pick. I don't see Blue getting cut with our youth movement, but who knows.

    It would be insance to cut Blue. Keep 5 safeties. Move Smith to nickelback when we bring in the dime package.

    Actually I'm all for moving Smith to nickel/dime-back permanently.
    Even though this is a great battle, there has really been no standout. It's playing out in a pretty boring way so far.

    i want to hear more from tank williams in this preseason, because normally i would say i'd like to keep tank over dwight, but dwight has at least shown somthing in camp...

    we know body is gone, the question is Williams vs Smith vs Blue.
    i'm pretty sure Doss & Sharper are locked in, doss has done well so far

    Depending on our OLB situation, maybe we could move Blue there...

    Just a thought.

    This is one of the most intriguing battles of camp. I see Tank being the odd man out when it comes time for cuts. Blue has that mad potential and he adds youth to the corps. Dwight proved he was a decent player there last year. Sharper is pretty much the only sure starter in my opinion. Doss adds good depth and starting potential..
