    WR Logan Payne

    The Vikings add former Gophers wide receiver Logan Payne.

    As a result of a dreadful lack of Vikings news (not including Favre of course. That man has probably half of the media attention in the NFC North) I decided to inform the PurplePride community that the Vikings recently added a new wide receiver to the roster.

    Yes, I know players come and go all the time, especially at this time of the year, but I want to say that the first impression of Logan Payne was very good. That's besides the fact that his last name is awesome.

    - He played for the University of Minnesota.
    - He is 6'2" and weights over 205 pounds.

    I wanted the Vikings to draft Eric Decker if he would end up sliding down the boards in the 2010 Draft. He didn't, but Logan Payne looks like completely like Eric Decker if you look at the afformentioned facts. Just take a look at this picture of Logan Payne!

    It will be interesting to see if he can show the same kind of abilities as Eric Decker on the field, but it will not be easy to get a spot on a roster with many talentet receivers.

    Check out Logan Payne's profile at NFL.com!!
    You can see a video of Payne's 44-yard TD catch on the right. He looks really impressive. He displays good speed and excellent catching abilities. He actually reminds me of Sidney Rice on that play. In fact, Payne says he loves to run the deep route and he posted a 39-inch vertical on his Pro Day.

    Interesting signing, but likely just camp fodder IMO.

    Should be noted that the catch in the video was from late in the 4th preseason game.
    He has already been cut from 3 teams practice squad so I think it's unlikely he even makes ours. His only actual nfl experience came with the seahawks when 3 recievers were sidelined with injury.

    Re:Vikings sign WR Logan Payne

    For those who want to know Logan Payne's workout results on his pro day:
    Logan Payne Shines in Gophers' Pro Day.

    - Payne had a 39-inch vertical jump. For comparison, Sidney Rice had a 39,5" vertical and he's famous for his leaping abilities.
    - Payne had 16 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press. Not bad for a wide receiver.
    - Payne ran a 4.17 second shuttle run.
    - Payne ran a 6.81 second cone drill.
    - Payne ran a 4.58 40-yard dash.

    I found this quote from Payne, but I I can't find the source:
    At Minnesota, thatís all we ran was zone blocking. We didnít really throw the ball much up there (laughs). So yeah, I think I kind of have an advantage in that. I really like the zone scheme. I even know what the guards and tackles are doing from college. So Iím really comfortable with going down and getting linebackers and safeties.
    I think that's the first time I've actually heard someone say they like the zone blocking scheme. :laugh:

    Now Payne is going to tell the media that Favre molested him repeatedly.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
