    Vikings trade for Sam Cowart.

    A 7th round draft pick, a rookie who probably wouldn't have made the team anyway, doesn't sound half bad, to me!

    That is a complete steal! What r u talking about. I am guessing that you thought it was the 7th PICK not 7th ROUND pick.

    Jets trade Cowart to Vikings for draft pick

    March 18, 2005
    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Jets traded middle linebacker Sam Cowart to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday for a seventh-round pick in this year's draft.

    Cowart saw his playing time diminish in 2004 after a knee injury knocked him out for an extended period and rookie Jonathan Vilma emerged as a standout player. After the season, Cowart asked for a trade when it became clear he wouldn't have much of a role with the Jets.

    The move to Minnesota reunites him with defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell, who coached him in Buffalo and New York, along with former Bills teammates Antoine Winfield, Pat Williams, Keith Newman and Ken Irvin.

    ``Adding Sam Cowart gives us a strong veteran presence and leadership in the middle of our defense,' said Vikings coach Mike Tice said. ``Sam has played at an elite level throughout his career and we are expecting him to add that type of performance to our defense.'

    Cowart, entering his eighth season in the NFL, was a second-round pick of Buffalo in 1998 and emerged as a star, notching over 100 tackles in five of his first seven NFL seasons. But he hasn't been the same since an Achilles' tendon injury in 2001.

    He played outside linebacker for two years with the Jets before moving back to the middle last season, where he is most comfortable. Cowart was playing well until he sprained his knee in Week 2 against San Diego and missed the next six games. He was hardly used when he got healthy.

    The Vikings have been busy upgrading their defense in the offseason, signing linebacker Napoleon Harris, safety Darren Sharper, cornerback Fred Smoot and Williams in the last three weeks. Including Cowart, the five players bring a combined 339 NFL starts, 57 interceptions, 32 sacks and have played in three Pro Bowls.

    They have Vilma and he was taking up cap space for them, they were going to release him, this just insures that they get something out of him, and for us it insures we don't get him. (otherwise another team could swoop in and seduce him.)
