    Free Agents that can still help the Vikes.

    Here are some FA that I think can still help the Vikes and provide depth at some positions, also a list of available FA.


    QB's
    Kerry Collins (boos and catcalls) He is better than Mike Mahon, and if Brad went down I would rather have Collins coming off the bench. Plus he would probably take a million a year as a backup now that nobody has signed him.

    Quarterback
    Kerry Collins
    Tommy Maddox
    Jay Fiedler
    Tony Banks
    Shane Matthews
    Jeff Blake
    Doug Flutie
    Ty Detmer



    RB's
    Johnathan Wells (Texans) would give us some additional depth at RB just encase things would go bad with injuries.

    Running Back
    Jonathan Wells
    Lamar Gordon
    Stephen Davis
    Tony Hollings
    Mike Cloud
    James Jackson
    J.R. Redmond



    FB
    Do not see a need to add anybody else at this time.

    Fullback
    Jarrod Baxter
    Daimon Shelton
    Nick Luchey
    Paul Smith
    Omar Easy



    WR's
    Randy Hymes (Ravens) is the only player I see that would have any upside for the Vikes to bring in, and he would give us some more depth.

    Wide Receiver
    Kevin Johnson
    Dez White
    Az-Zahir Hakim
    Randy Hymes
    Patrick Johnson
    David Boston
    Johnnie Morton
    Troy Edwards
    Ricky Proehl



    TE's
    Boo Williams (Saints) would be a good pickup. He has a lot of potential but he missed last year with a knee injury. He could have some upside and brings in another receiving TE to back up Wiggins.

    Tight End
    Boo Williams
    Lamont Hall
    Roland Williams
    Marcellus Rivers
    Cam Cleeland
    Tony Stewart



    O-line
    I do not see any need to bring in more O-line help after all the moves the Vikes have made this off season.

    Guard
    Ron Stone
    Kendyl Jacox
    Fred Weary
    Tom Nutten

    Offensive Tackle
    Brad Hopkins
    Orlando Brown
    Matt Stinchcomb
    Todd Fordham
    Ethan Brooks
    Jacob Rogers
    Scott Gragg
    Victor Riley

    Center
    Jeff Mitchell
    Cory Raymer



    Kicker:
    We only need a rookie for camp fodder, Longwell is going to be the kicker.

    Kicker
    Todd Peterson
    Paul Edinger
    Jose Cortez




    Punter
    With Kluwe coming off a knee injury I think adding more competition would not hurt! I would bring in any of these 3 and give them a try.

    Punter
    Kyle Richardson OK punter he is serviceable
    Tom Tupa Hell of a punter but missed the 2005 season
    Sean Landeta Another hell of a punter and would be good to bring in



    DT
    We are pretty set and I do not see the need to add anybody.

    Defensive Tackle
    Brenston Buckner
    Jason Fisk
    Grady Jackson
    James Reed
    Lance Legree
    Steve Martin
    Josh Williams




    DE
    I would not mind if they brought somebody into camp just to add some depth and see how Kenechi is after his injury, but the only one out of this group I like at all is Clemons

    Defensive End
    Duane Clemons
    Gary Walker
    Adrian Dingle
    Carl Powell




    ILB
    I would like to see the Vikes bring a Veteran into camp for depth and safety for the season.
    Earl Holmes (Lions & Pitt) would be my choice. He is a vet but he was dinged up a little last year, he could add some experience and depth in the middle!

    Inside Linebacker
    Rocky Calmus
    Earl Holmes
    Chris Claiborne
    Saleem Rasheed
    Ronald McKinnon



    OLB
    Maybe we could bring in 1 OLB to add some insurance to how the OLB's play this year.
    Tommy Polly (Ravens & Rams) would be my choice and would be a good pickup and has some upside.

    Outside Linebacker
    Jamie Sharper Good veteran backup
    Tommy Polley
    Chad Brown
    Peter Boulware Old but was a great LB, maybe for league minimum
    Keith Newman
    Barrett Green
    Junior Seau
    DeLawrence Grant




    CB
    I think the Vikes should add a veteran to compete for the nickle or dime.
    Ty Law is the only one of this group that I like, He would probably be to expensive to bring in, if we could get him for dirt cheap I would add him.

    Cornerback
    Ahmed Plummer
    Ty Law
    Dexter McCleon Maybe ?
    Ralph Brown
    Ray Mickens
    Willie Williams
    Michael Lehan
    DeWayne Washington
    Dale Carter
    Terry Fair



    Safety
    Insurance for Willie's recover and if he gets more DUI's.
    Lance Schulters (Journeyman) would be a good backup and added insurance.

    Safety
    Antuan Edwards
    Brent Alexander Good player but he is 34
    Lance Schulters Journeyman but could be a good backup
    Keion Carpenter (Falcons) would be a good backup
    Ronnie Heard
    Earl Little
    Jerry Wilson
    Ifeanyi Ohalete
    Bracy Walker
    Willie Middlebrooks
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Outside of Ty Law. I don't see many on the list that could help us.

    Re: Free Agents that can still help the Vikes.

    I wouldn't have a problem with us getting Kerry Collins for a fair price as a backup.

    Gary Walker is one of those versatile players that can give you snaps at BOTH DT and DE...if he still has any gas left in the tank.

    Anyone know if Maurice Clarett is available??? :lol:
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Rookie punter John Torp was signed to handle the punting duties during camp while Kluwe rehabs.

    Collins is ok. One day he looks like a pro bowler (like when he destroyed us in the playoffs vs. the Giants), then the next day he is a cream puff. Ty Law is good, but his personality doesn't fit our team. I do like Jamie Sharper and/or Peter Boulware tho

    I see a number of QB's on that list I would have felt better about than McMahon as a backup-- Collins, Maddox, Fiedler.. At least they have had some success in the NFL.

    FB
    Do not see a need to add anybody else at this time.
    Amen to that brother. :grin:

    Collins as a backup, now that I could live with.. Flutie wouldn't be bad either.. I saw some more on your list that wouldn't be bad, but alot of the positions we don't need anymore people.. Good list, and well thought out.
