    Re: Donnie Edwards Out!?

    His stats are certainly impressive. A 2nd round pick for him? I don't know.. Remember we took a 2nd round pick for Daunte. Yes Donnie isn't injured and he didn't come off a piss-poor season, but I'd try and force the Chargers to take a 3rd round pick.

    Re: Donnie Edwards Out!?

    If he was 30 I would say cool for a 2nd rounder..

    Offer a 3rd round.. That is if he fits the Tampa cover 2

    Give him the low second-rounder and backload his long-term contract. No deal, who cares, go to the draft.

    Re: Donnie Edwards Out!?

    Are there any reports of the Vikings wanting to meet with him?

    I'm really not sure if this would be a good deal or not. He's a very good player, but considering his age and contract status, he might end up being a one-year rental at best. Still, he'd be our best MLB since we had Jack Del Rio.

    Re: Donnie Edwards Out!?

    I just did some research on him. I couldn't find his 40 time but most sites said that he was a fast agile Linebacker that is fairly good at dropping back in coverage and blitzing. Sounds like he might fit the cover 2 pretty well.

    I agree with KWilliamsAWinfield, I don't want to trade a 2nd rounder for Donnie Edwards.

    Don't get me wrong, he would be the perfect guy to bring leadership to our linebacker core(which we REALLY need), but you have to remember he's old.

    I don't want to give up a 2nd round pick for a guy who's only going to be playing 2-3 more years.

    If he can help bring a super bowl to minnesota in those 2-3 years then I would be very, very happy. I think we try to offer a 3rd rounder and see if they go for that. If they don't then try to bargain for like a 3rd round and 5th round package and stuff like that. Then go to the second if they're still not budging.

    You also have to remember that our LB core is young and the experience they could gain from a vet that is also a solid leader would be worth way more then a measly 2nd round pick.

    We bring in a rookie it's the blind leading the blind. If the guy can take control and lead 3 years would be awesome because not only would he make plays he would also help develop our younger talent.

    Agreed. We have basically no good veteran linebackers on our team and we are in desperate need of one.
