    Vikings try to sign wide receiver - Fail

    [size=12pt]Electrifying receiver Richardson spurns offer from Vikings[/size]
    http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/story.html?id=1149479
    The fear of Jamel Richardson leaving Montreal to go to the National Football League has been allayed - at least for next season and possibly beyond.

    In a dramatic turn of events, The Gazette has learned the receiver - one of the Alouettes' most exciting players - will be returning to Montreal in 2009, spurning an offer from the Minnesota Vikings in the process...

    No big loss. He couldn't even crack the Cowboys roster a few years back. He wouldn't have changed the face of football by coming here.

    The best part of this is that at least we are looking.

    In the CFL.

    You know, the Arena Football League folded a few months back, maybe they have a great WR we can sign on the cheap

    Agree.
    Problem is, as I feared, it appears the coaching staff has asked for WR help.
    Problem is the FO has probably determined they have spent to much in that area and are looking for "Bargain Basement" help to upgrade it.

    Damn Bryzcheapski.

    I disagree, he's the reason we're still only 20 mil. under cap. I was amazed hearing that.
    I think we should look for O-line first instead of a contributing receiver. Although i do agree we need one, we need to address several positions

    Sure we are 20 mil under the cap, however, how good could have we been last year if we weren't so far under it and he spent some bucks on talent instead of "Always" being so far under?

    We're 20M under without taking care of our own FA's.
    How much under do you believe we'll be if we keep Sharper and Birk??
    If we let them go, we have 2 additional potential holes to fill.
    Last
    year we had a ton of money because we had few big names to resign ourselves, this year that's not true.
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.
