    What O-lineman will not make the Viking's roster.

    With all the O-lineman we currently have on the roster who will the Viking's cut, and who will they keep?

    The Vikings will probably keep 9 O-lineman maybe 10. And probably 2 guys on development squad.

    We currently have 16 guys on the roster, and a long snapper.




    Guys that should be sure bets to make the team.

    Steve Hutchinson
    Bryant McKinnie
    Matt Birk
    Marcus Johnson
    Artis Hicks
    Ryan Cook (will be on roster or practice squad for sure)




    Vets that will be on the bubble:

    Chris Lewinski
    Mike Rosenthal
    Jason whittle
    Mark Wilson
    Anthony Herrera
    Adam Goldberg
    Sean Budin





    Undrafted FA rookies

    Donald Penn Utah State
    Albert Stinson
    Jason Palermo



    Long Snapper
    Cullen Loeffler





    What guys do not make it:

    My guess

    Chris Lewinski
    Mike Rosenthal
    Mark Wilson
    Donald Penn
    Albert Stinson

    Jason Palermo (practice squad possibility)

    I strongly agree with this list, they should be able to give Johnson some protection.

    That's why I have Rosenthal on the list. Even though he was an unmitigated disaster last year at times, he has been a solid RT in his past, which none of the others which I see as being gone can say.

    I think that Mark Wilson, Anthony Herrera, Adam Goldberg, and Sean Budin will ultimately end up cut. Herrera and Goldberg have always been Tice pet projects, and will be replaced with Childress pet projects. Wilson and Budin are likely just training camp players.

    Chris Liwienski and Sean Bubin...

    Maybe Rosenthal, if he doesn't perform up to his contract...he has a starters contract, if he doesn't start, he's done!

    I feel the same way Audio, I think he could be made an example of, because of money, and his years in the biz, and the expectations of him maturing and getting better, not getting worse or staying the same. Rosie has a lot to prove.

    I think he did sign a friendly contract, I could be mistaken, but I just feel he is on the bubble more than most. I also feel that Tice's guys (back ups) have two stikes against them.

    Re: What O-lineman will not make the Viking's roster.

    In addition, the Vikings essentially swapped fourth-round picks with the Philadelphia Eagles and gave up a sixth-round pick for guard Artis Hicks, who has started 31 of the 38 games he has played in the NFL.
    I didn't know that, I thought he was filling in for injured players, this makes it sound like he was a legitimate starter his whole career.

    OFFENSIVE LINE (set)

    The Vikings have two Pro Bowl linemen in Matt Birk and Steve Hutchinson, and Bryant McKinnie is on the cusp of winning that distinction. Several players with starting experience will push Hicks for the right-guard spot. Birk, McKinnie, Hutchinson, Marcus Johnson and Cook appear locks to make the roster, leaving three spots for youngsters and veterans such as Hicks, Chris Liwienski, Jason Whittle, Anthony Herrera and Mike Rosenthal.

    "I've said this all the way along: competition makes good football teams," Childress said.
    My question is what is Marcus Johnson's role on this team.

    If it is McKinnie --- Hutch --- Birk --- Hicks --- ???Johnson???Rosie???Cook???

    Has Marcus improved his foot speed to try and compete for the starting RT spot?

    I really like Childress' comment on the competition. Like I said previously, there wasn't enough of that the last few years, guys get complacent when things are handed to them.
