    Re: $30 MILLION? Really?

    I'm reading more like $21 Mil, not $30 Mil...

    [size=13pt]Vikings suddenly in buzz-free zone with bucks to burn[/size]

    There's no buzz. Everyone is just sort of … blah.

    The NFL's free-agent signing period began at 11 Thursday night. Here in Minnesota, home to some of the world's most hard-core — if not hardheaded — football fans, the opening bell was greeted by a yawn. Oh, there's interest, but not as much as we usually see for all things involving the Vikings.

    This is not a very strong free-agent class. However, the Vikings have roughly $21 million to spend. That can buy a lot of mediocrity, which would represent an upgrade at several positions. Shouldn't that $21 million shopping budget be the talk of the town? That just seems like a big deal to me.

    More proof that Rob B. is a genius.

    From Peter King's MMQB column today:

    e. I can just feel Mike Holmgren fuming. He's thinking: Last year we let Steve Hutchinson go for $7 million a year, and now $7 million is the going rate for a guard who can walk and chew gum at the same time.

    f. I mean it: Mike Holmgren is not happy about this.
    Wow.
    Being smart with our money in the small market of the TC, how interesting.....

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
