    Re: ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

    Also, if I was a FA or a cutee, I would want a one year deal.

    No CBA will = one year contracts and these guys will have to produce to get paid next year. Some of the really good players will be signed longer term, but with the uncertainty, who knows.

    This is where the finance guys earn their money. Rob B's head must be spinning. If the plan goes forward with no CBA agreement (95'ishM cap this year and none next year). Its time to salivate if your the teams like the Vikings. Do you find the cream of the crop that hits FA and lock them into long term deals, so you don't lose them to the big spenders next year? Or do you make a great team for a year and play the game all over again next year? As snow points out, players who believe in their abilities will want short term deals to get the free for all market next year. Others may want long term security and sign a longer deal (just to complain about it in the future when there peers are making more).

    More than likely, even with Wilf's apparent willingness to spend money to win, I don't think he had a no cap situation on his mind. I can't see MN keeping up with the big market teams, so any studs the Vikings have with short term contracts could very well be gone after this year.

    Its a bad deal for MN long term (farm team for the big markets) if they don't keep a cap, but they could get some short term advantages.

    Witherspoon would be awesome. Julian Peterson and Arrington would be nice too, but I'm sure both of them would underperform their contracts.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Re: ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

    I have a bad feeling that these idiot's won't get the deal done.... just like that hockey league... what is it called again?.... exactly! These guys are going to let greed ruin everything for them. If they would just compromise then they can all make more money. If they don't get a deal done you will just piss off the fans and everyone will lose money over this stupid deal. Why can't they have people with common sense head up these negotiations?

    Thanks Lotza!

    Re: ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

    It's like being a kid in the candy shop if your the Vikings, so many options. If this CBA thing doesn't get done, MN can pick and choose from a lot of solid candidates, maybe you go after the ones who you can cut the best deals with? And that may mean longer term contracts to avoid the uncapped situation next year?

    How about this situation, all the high cap teams that are high on the draft list. Do they have room to give the guaranteed money these guys will get? If not, does that open up more trading down of draft picks?
