    Ferguson to sign 1 year deal

    After saying that he wanted to return to the Vikings following last season, Ferguson is expected to re-sign with the club as early today.

    Good.
    I was skeptical of him at first, but I think he is very good in the run blocking role.

    Re: Ferguson to sign 1 year deal

    For a 4th or 5th WR, I think he earned that with last year's performance.
    A 1yr deal sounds about right.

    If the Vikings would happen to draft a WR in the first few rounds, does that mean that Allison is odd man out or do you carry 6 WR's on the roster which I would highly doubt.

    It would mean that Allison is the odd man out.
    I can't think of who else to cut.
    They won't cut Wade, because they've invested alot in him and he's proven to be at least adaquate.
    The won't cut Rice, as he's shown he oculd be a playmaker for years to come.
    They won't cut Berrian for obvious reasons and now they won't cut fergy because they just resigned him.
    This leaves Allison looking for work.
    They may try to slip him to practice squad, but he'll most likely get scooped up by another team.

    I doubt that you would carry six.
    That is why I just don't see us drafting a WR, unless it is one deep in the draft for practice squad fodder.

    That's the way its looking, unless someone is too good to resist at the right spot.

    It's good to see him resign. I hated it last year but he is growing on me. Can't wait to see what him, Berrian, Rice, and Wade can do!

    A 1 year contract is hardly an iron-clad guarantee you'll make it out of training camp...

    Dumb move.
    No other team wanted him and i don't want a blocking receiver, I want a talented receiver can block.

    Again with the bargin basement shopping. Why didn't they bring in pinkston or McCullen, while they were at it.
