    Four Free Agents to wish for

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/blogs/121431184.html
    The Vikings picked up a few players in the draft who are expected to contribute immediately in Christian Ponder, Kyle Rudolph and Christian Ballard. But there are still plenty of holes to fill through free agency. Thanks to the lockout and continuing legal mess, we havenít had that annual free-for-all just yet.

    The rules for free agency are yet to be determined. And we donít know whoís a free agent yet either.

    NFL.com compiled a list of potential free agents as if the NFL operates under the rules from the 2010 CBA.

    Of that list, hereís four players who are reasonable targets for the Vikings when free agency does begin

    A DT, a Safety, and two offensive linemen sound perfect to me.

    Seems like these guys would come not-so-cheap though. We need to save some cash for Peterson, Rice, and Greenway.

    Re: Four Free Agents to wish for

    Free agents that might become available I would like to see us at least show an interest in. One or two of these guys and we're a very good looking team

    Offense:
    Braylon Edwards
    Santonio Holmes
    Steve Smith (NYG)
    Randy Moss
    Santana Moss
    James Jones

    Jermon Bushrod
    Willi Colon
    Carl Nicks
    Harvey Dahl
    Ryan kalil
    Justin Blalock

    Defense:
    Shaun Cody (Marty's "Warpig")
    Lamar Woodley
    Rocky McIntosh
    Thomas Davis
    Mike Peterson
    Clint Session
    Ernie Simms

    Jonathan Joseph
    Antoio Cromartie
    Richard marshal
    Quinten mikell
    eric Weddle
    Dawan landry
    Tanard Jackson
    Atari Bigby

    Now, alot of those guys will get re-signed by their current team, but there's also a bunch that will be looking for a job. i think any of them could come in and help us out.

    I think you mean Nnandi Asomoghua (sp)? He would be great but very expensive.

    VERY VERY expensive ... but quite possible worth every penny.

    I would not at all be disappointed in us pursuing him. I would, however, be completely shocked if he had any interest in Minnesota. Though Frazier was a great CB and with Singletary and Pagac around, he may be interested in what could be a defensive minded team.

    It is a nice dream.

    I've been reading lots of stuff about Dallas as the team you will have to outbid to get his services.

    Rationale most use is the following:

    a. Rob Ryan wants to run the same offense that the Jets run.
    b. To do that you need atleast(among other thins) one shut down CB.
    c. The owner wants to make a big splash to draw fan interest.

    Supposedly, Jerry is going to try to get that done. I don't think the Wilf Ownership Group (although I'd love to see him in Purple and Gold) can outbid that sneaky Texan.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I bet they can, but won't. They'd be smart to make an attempt, and get an offer out there. Best case, we get him. Worst case, we drive up the price for other teams. I think you grossly underestimate how much spending money we have. Wilf has shown he doesn't mind spending the big bucks on players, I don't see why you think that will change.

    However, if it's going to be like $12 mil to get him, I'd say pass.
