    What can you say. They keep swinging and striking out on these guys.

    I actually feel bad for the front office guys. They seems to by trying, but we all just sit here watching these guys go elsewhere.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    A little more than a week into the free-agent signing period, the Vikings have filled holes at wide receiver, safety, fullback and kick returner, but have gone 0 for 3 in their search for a starting defensive end.....

    Re: Free-agent success hasn't included a DE

    Thanks my friend.
    Very interesting read.

    I have faith in ole Rick.
    He will get a guy in that will fill the hole at LDE. The more I look at his stuff I like either Cambell or Merling who could both be there at 17.

    Add one of these two guys'

    Tony Hargrove





    Unrestricted Bills


    6-3 272lbs 4 years 10.5 career sacks
    Josh Thomas






    Unrestricted Colts

    6-5 271lbs 4 years 6 career sacks

    For a lineup that looks like this.

    RDE
    Edwards/Robison/Grigsby (or James)
    DT
    K-will/Evans
    DT
    Phat Pat/Rookie
    LDE Mitchell/Hargrove or Thomas/Campbell or Merling

    Hey Marr a little more research next time my friend



    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3064246

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive end Anthony Hargrove pleaded guilty Monday to disorderly conduct, drawing a $300 fine and 200 hours of community service for an altercation with police outside a Rochester nightclub in August.

    Hargrove, 24, was charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief and harassment after police said he broke an officer's eyeglasses during an early morning encounter on Aug. 5 while the Bills were in town for preseason training camp.

    But more importantly ;D

    NFL suspends Hargrove for season after 3rd substance abuse violation

    Associated Press

    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive end Anthony Hargrove was suspended without pay for all of next season Monday by the NFL after violating the league's substance abuse policy a third time.

    The violation was Hargrove's second since August, when he was suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season.

    A third violation triggers an automatic one-year suspension, and Hargrove must apply to commissioner Roger Goodell for reinstatement.

    Re: Free-agent success hasn't included a DE

    D'oh!!
    Guess he's off the list.
    Thomas would be worth talking to...experience with Tampa2.
    Young.
    Not much experience...reasonably priced depth.
    But, if they've got their minds set on a guy in the draft, that roster spot may be spoken for.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Might be bargain basement in your book, but they are all that are left in my book.
    Who do you think is better on the FA market that is left?
