    Former Vikings still out there

    I got this from another thread:

    Etc.

    • Former Vikings backup quarterback Shaun Hill recently signed with the San Francisco 49ers. That leaves four Vikings free agents unsigned. The list includes cornerback Ralph Brown; kicker Paul Edinger; running back Moe Williams, and center Cory Withrow.
    What do you guys think?

    CB Ralph Brown: I think it'll be difficult for Brown to find somewhere to play. He were decent as he played som nickel, but he never really stood out.

    K Paul Edinger: I think Edinger will get some work outs for teams that needs kickers. But it is allways a difficult position as there are rarely more than one spot per team.

    RB Moe Williams: It seems that Moe wants another year, and I'm confident he'll find someone who want him in that 3rd down role. Probably the Rams.

    C Cory Withrow: I think this is it for Withrow. He kind of showed last year that he doesn't cut it at this level as a starter.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Edinger will get signed at the last minute bye a team in need of a kicker.
    I think Moe should retire in all honesty.
    Withrow will have trouble finding a job.
    and I think Ralph Brown will eventually find a team....he isnt THAT bad.

    Edinger could go to the Pats. they have Martin Gramatica but he's trash. They just drafted the kicker out of Memphis Stephen Gradkowski. I don't know how to spell it but whatever. He might start but at least to start the season Gramatica won't make it. Edinger could go there. It's just a thought. I'm from Rhode Island so that's how I know that Gramatica won't cut it in New England.

    Re: Former Vikings still out there

    edinger is not a bad kicker at all, sure he's been a little inconsistant, but he will have no probably being signed by someone in need.

    ralph brown will most likely be signed as a team that doesnt have much depth in their secondary behind nickle

    moe williams... i really like the guy and wish he could keep playing, but coming off of an injury and being a bigger guy, who's also now up there in years, will most likely go unsigned and be forced to retire, although had he not gotten injured last year, i think he probably would have had one more decent year in him

    withrow..... i dont know, he's not a bad player, but he's small and not exactly a starter, maybe someone brings him in as a back up, but i dont think thats too likely, i can see him having some problems getting signed.

    i agree!! I think Moe just needs to throw in the towel!! Ralph isn't terribly bad, but some teams might need a Special teams player or a back up in the CB position!!!

    Holy guacomole! Which Brown were you guys watching?
    He sucked. I don't think he will be picked up.

    Edinger is good enough to get a job if someone falters or gets injured. He will likely be in a training camp, get cut, then get hired elsewhere when someone gets injured.

    Withrow is likely done. He's a victim of the peter principal. He attained a level one step beyond his abilities.

    I love Moe Williams. He did everything he was asked to do and more. He didn't just play for a paycheck. Like a throwback to the days of Bud Grant; Moe was a true professional who exceeded expectations and never complained.
    If Moe wants to play one more year I hope someone gives him a chance.
    But I don't see it happening.

    none of them were cut, their contracts expired. there is a difference. you get cut if you a) piss off the coach (see TO) b) underperform based on the expectations of you or c) don't make the team after training camp

    Re: Former Vikings still out there

    Edinger will deffinetly get signed some where. Hes alot better than some of the projected starting kickers around the league. At the very least he gets signed in the middle of the season when a kicker costs his team a few games.
