    Johnstone to shop around

    Reported on KFFL this morning:

    Vikings | Johnstone to shop around
    Tue, 14 Mar 2006 05:49:32 -0800

    Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports free agent DE Lance Johnstone (Vikings) is setting up visits with other clubs. "I've had significant conversations with three clubs the last 48 hours regarding Lance," agent Joel Segal said.

    This is sad to me.

    Probably the only player I personally cared to resign in FA. Makes me want to lash out at Childress a bit, but I have to take my own advice on this one and wait to see what product he puts on the field.

    It sucks.

    I don't know how much younger talent we need at DE then we have.

    He knows he is not a starter. He is situational and a very good teacher, I know this first hand. I think the benifit of even having this guy at practice for James and Udeze is worth more then whatever tiny ammount of money he will get wherever he goes.

    Same here. He was a double digit sack guy year in and year out even with limited playing time. He is a good mentor from what it looks like... I would love to keep him.

    Lance is a leader, and good role model. It will suck to lose him, but we have no idea if the Vikes are in the mix or not. For all we know, the Vikings could just be waiting to see what other teams offer him, and then go from there..
