    Why not i mean troy williamson had one bad year.
    He still has a lot of upside.
    Darren Sharper are you kidding me let him go? but every one else bye bye. but dont make the same mistake like last year. we let all them decent players
    go an we suffered really bad.

    who rumored this? you? i dont believe well let go of t-will, well give him another shot, and if we do get rid of sharper its a dumb move

    Is there a source for these rumors?

    I ask because the same list of players was given in another thread. The list reportedly came from a packers sports writer...

    Hate to see wiggy or keiny go...but we never heard from them this year...product of the system maybe but if they don't fit in the system then whats the point of keeping them.
    Then again god knows if Chilly knows what the heck he'd doing so....

    Sharper deserves to stay so does Troy even though he broke our hearts this year by dropping alot of passes. Smoot I still think is a premier corner. Napoeon free agent he will draw alot of interests very good LB. Wiggins very good Tight end he dont really stretch the field but he has pretty good hands. Marcus Johnson drew alot of penalties for false starts he can go in my view along with Jimmy K who should have been left alone at Fullback but what do I know
    well its just to bad the offseason is gonna drain some people about whos is gonna get trade or let go or whatever . maybe this year the vikes get off their butts and make a couple moves in free agency and pick up some really good draft picks.

    Williamson is still under contract and should have one more year to get out of his sophmore slump.
    Sharper should stay, but it depends on where the front office wants to go and the $$$ impact on the team.
    IMHO, putting together a winning NFL organization is a combination of signing the right talent, proper coaching, and timing.
    I say timing because once you become very good, the free agency will pillage and burn your organization to the highest bidder.
    If you don't have depth, you're hosed.
    This is once thing New England is known for.
    Signing quality players, both rookie and veterans, and coaching BOTH categories.
    My 2 cents...

    Yeah totally timing..i'm concerned more with the fact that chilly will let good players go and pick up hosers!
    Not fully trusting of his instincts or attitude yet but I'll give hime another year before I make the decide.

    I have seen most of these names floating around the rumor mill, both together and separate.
    Here is my take on them.

    Smoot - Has a huge contract for a nickel back.
    We could keep him for another year, but his contract gets too hefty after that.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see him traded out this offseason.

    Harris - Leber is under contract and EJ excelled this year.
    Harris can still play decent ball, but doesn't fit the Mike scheme in the cover 2.
    I don't see him returning next year.

    Kleinsasser and Wiggins - Neither is the type of TE who can stretch the field.
    Both are great players still, and will have a lot of interest.


    Williamson - Up to the coaches.
    Personally I expect him to return.
    Without the pressure of being #1 forced on him, he may be able to develop again.
    But at the same time, if another team offered a decent price, the front office would give it some consideration.

    M Johnson - Haven't seen any rumors about him, so can't comment either way.

    Sharper - All the rumors about Sharper came from one post game interview after the Rams loss.
    He was expressing his displeasure in experiencing the first losing season of his career.
    I wouldn't put too much weight in this one.

    I don't think we will get rid of Troy after 2 years on a 6 year contract, it would be a big hit.
    Also No real reason to get rid of Sharper while he is under contract.
    We can live without Kleinsasser (who is grossly overpaid) and Wiggins.
    If we manage to get someone like Daniel Graham that would help our passing game.
    We can live without Napolean if EJ can make the transition to MLB again.
    I would hope we could at least trade Smoot for something.
