    FA Whitaker

    Minnesota Vikings have signed free agent CB Ronyell Whitaker, a 2-year NFL veteran who has spent his entire NFL career with Tampa Bay. Whitaker saw time in 4 games with a start in 2003 and spent 2004 on the Buccaneers' practice squad.

    Whitaker originally joined Tampa Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2003. He spent 8 weeks on the practice squad before moving to the active roster and made his lone career start vs. Houston (12/14/03). Whitaker studied under current Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin and DBs coach Joe Woods in Tampa Bay.

    As a collegian at Virginia Tech, Whitaker earned 1st-Team All-Big East as a junior and 3rd-Team All-America. Whitaker is the nephew of professional boxer Pernell "Sweet Pea" Whitaker.

    I don't know anything about this guy, but Tomlin must have seen something in him to bring him here. I get the feeling he's a sleeper and is going to break out soon simply from the stance of the situation. Hopefully we keep B-will and trade Smoot and this guy is Tomlin's secret weapon at nickle.

    Hopefully he'll be better than Ralph Brown!
