    Williamson the Block

    WILLIAMSON IS ON THE BLOCK

    In the development that hardly can be characterized as a surprise, a league source at the Scouting Combine tells us that the Minnesota Vikings are shopping receiver Troy Williamson.

    Williamson was the seventh overall pick in the 2005 draft, and he has been a major disappointment.
    The problem is that he can't catch the ball on a consistent basis.

    Recently, Vikings receivers coach George Stewart said that he wants to give Williamson another chance.
    We should have interpreted that statement as what it apparently is -- a too-little, too-late effort by the Vikings to make other teams think he won't be cut if he isn't dealt.

    Williamson is signed through 2009, and is due to earn a base salary of $910,000 in 2008

    Gotta link?

    This is not a huge suprise.
    He obviously needs a new home as his stay here is probably done.
    Get something for him while you can and find another guy to fill the role.

    For the guys/gals that will come with the "He isn't worth anything" reply......

    There is always a team out there that believe they can fix a player.
    Add that to a weak class of FA's and I am sure he will find a new home if in fact the Vikes let him go.

    I think we can get a club sandwich and a bag of chips and possibly a soda (though that may be stretching it)

    Direct result of a shitty owner not adequately funding a vialble scouting department.

    I don't think he will get moved in a trade unless it's a package deal. More likely he will be cut. Then some team will pick him up cheap.

    All we can really expect is a later round pick, and hopefully we can shed the big money responsibility.
