    Antrel Rolle and Dunta Robinson???

    I would love for us to get one/both of them. Both are unrestricted (I believe), anyone here want them?
    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.

    I think that either of these guys will be far too expensive for the Vikes taste. I would love to see it happen, just dont think it will.

    Obviously if I had my choice I'd pick Rolle. I'm not positive how the contract situation works, is it gone right away after being released, after 24 hours or something, or does it stick with him? Dunta Robinson was alright, but somewhat injury-prone missing 12 games during the 06-07 and 07-08 seasons and averages 1 INT every 6.5 games. Antrel Rolle on the other hand has missed only 1 game in the last 4 seasons and averages an INT every 5.67 games at FS.

    And he played CB in college and still probably can, so he's more versatile.

    Because Rolle was released, he would not count against us in the "Final 8" rule ... so I figure we should go after him.

    We cannot get Dunta unless we lose someone of equal value, and I don't believe we have that.

    You're right. The Vikings cannot get Dunta. It's pretty much out of the question. He is going to demand nearly 10 million a year. We are not losing anyone that will sign for that much. We can definitely sign Rolle cause he was released. I say go after Rolle, sign if possible. We can pick up Tomlinson, Westbrook, or Thomas Jones without any restrictions to take Taylor's place if he leaves. Pick cornerback with our 1st round pick. 2nd round QB.
    How bout you sideburns.. You want somma this milk??

    I'd prefer that the Vikings take a pass on both players. If you're looking for a FA corner, try Leigh Bodden.

    Pick up Leigh Bodden. Move AW to strong safety, and draft Taylor Mays. Put Mays at FS.

    On our standard 4-3 sets, have Griffin and Bodden in at CB and Mays/Winfield at FS/SS respectively. In nickelback situations, take EJ out, put Tyrell Johnson back to SS, AW on their best receiver, and put Bodden at nickel.

    Money.

    Zero percent chance they are moving TJohnson out of the starting lineup. Probably a zero percent chance they are moving Madieu out.
