    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.

    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
    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.

    Wearnt a few teams looking at him last year and passed? Are the Vikings really that cheap. Maybe if they got a real QB first and spent most of their money. But this guy wouldnt improve our offense that much

    I dont' think they think they've spent too much in that area... your always looking to upgrade your roster.. just bc they looked in the CFL means nothing!

    Re: Vikings try to sign wide receiver - Fail

    Kind of embarrassing I think that a guy would rather stay in the CFL than come take another shot at the league with the Vikes.
    I guess he does not think he has what it takes to make it ... so we would prefer not have him anyways.

    I believe or I would like to believe that maybe Looking in the CFL was just a begining. I am sure the FO and CS know we need a Big Timer. Maybe well hopefully they thought getting Someone from the CFL could go with what they ewill spend real money on. But again I could be way off and the FO could have been Banking on The trip to walmart instead of going to Macys

    Sure you are, however, you don't want to overspend what you budget for each position.
    My guess is that what they spent on B-wade and BB has pretty much tapped that quota.

    Now they could short themselves in another area but to what expense?
    Upgrade a S, C, QB?

    Again, if one were to look at what they have done so far with respect to FA, they have spent big in the following areas:

    a.
    OL - First Big Mac, Hutch, then Herrera contract.
    Gonna have to do something at RT (either resign Cook in a year or so or bring in a Vet) and now C needs to be addressed.
    Ain't gonna give up any there.
    b.
    WR. Already talked about that.
    c.
    S.
    Could spend some here after Sharp leaves but I bet M-will broke that bank.
    Gonna see another rook come in to take the backup spot of STJ after he gets promoted to starter.
    d. TE.
    Shanc took a chunk out of that purse.
    f.
    LB.
    EJ and Ben are under a new contracts from 2006 that suck a bunch of that up.
    Chad will need a deal soon.
    g.
    RB. CT/AD will suck all that up in time.
    Might have a little room here if you want to rob from peter to pay paul.

    I might be wrong on this, but I really don't see them going after a guy like Hous, Johnson etc if in fact they do upgrade the position via FA.

    The cowboys are looking at the possibility of releasing TO. No link, but it was on ESPN Bottom line as a 'source' saying it. Also, the son of one of the shareholders/owners(not named jerry jones) was saying something about it as well.

    Re: Vikings try to sign wide receiver - Fail

    IMHO the FO has invested enough dollars and draft picks in the WR position to give Childress the tools he needs. If he and his staff are not able to run the offense with what they have I am sure there are others out there who would love to give it a shot.
