    Covertly Aggressive?

    Here is a neat link:

    Around the Web: Latest Player News

    Look at this and tell me that "The Vikings" are being aggressive in FA/offseason.
    We aggressively shopped TW, or his agent did anyways.

    Detroit seems to be kicking our butt.
    They are up and down this list.

    Maybe we are just better at hiding what we want.

    Anyways, enjoy the link.

    Its kind of hard to be aggressive, when free agency hasn't started yet.. I would say that pulling a trade before free agency even starts is being about as aggressive as you can be. Patience my friend..

    yeah but theres only like 1 or 2 players on that list who i think the vikes would try to get like justin smith who it said might go to the 49ers and bryant johnson who it doesnt mention a team. i think the vikes will be aggressive this FA but only towards players who we need which there arent many on that list. If berrian or the safety from cinci was on that list, i bet it would mention the vikings.

    Re: Covertly Aggressive?

    When other teams are involved in trade talks, I see that as being aggressive.

    We apparently don't want to give up anything for another player, we are going to draft and compete for FAs when the period starts.

    Yes, we could be aggressive before FA starts.

    Look at someone like Gruden and the Bucs going after Walker.
    The guy see something and he goes after it, he is aggressive.

    Why not Lito Sheppard or Eugene Wilson?

    CB is a need for us(debatable). S is a chance to improve(also debatable).

    Either the Vikes are confident they are going to get what they want, or we aren't doing enough?

    We will see!

    Bryant Johnson on Friday?

    Clayton thinks patience is key, probably not a bad idea.
    Good Article!

    [size=12pt]In free agency, it's better to be a keeper than a shopper[/size]
    by John Clayton

    Think back to the late 1980s when free agency started. A system called Plan B was created so that teams wouldn't lose their key players but would instead sacrifice aging starters or a couple of upcoming backups.

    It's almost 20 years later. Plan B is long gone and true free agency now exists, with the latest shopping spree to start Friday.

    The biggest twist this time -- actually, it has been in effect the past few years -- is the scarcity of options should a team lose a top free agent. That will create a fast market, and it's also going to cause panic.
