    KR Maurice Hicks planning Visit with Vikings

    [size=16pt]Another Name to the List[/size]

    Hicks is primarily a kick return guy and would almost certainly find himself in that role with the Vikings....

    Looks like they're looking at this guy as a possible #3 RB and kick returner.

    Perhaps that means they've got bigger plans for Allison this year

    Nice find.
    I hope they do start to work Allison into the WR mix more this year...

    DAMN I am getting pumped for the 2008 season already!!!

    I thought Allison did a fine job returning kicks last year, I don't think we need to bring in another #3 rb when we have our own FA #3 rb on our team in MeMo.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    no
    this year, the 2nd kr position was filled by Tony Richardson as a lead Blocker.
    Allison was the lone returner.

    Punt Returning is rather different, and some guys can't do both.

    MeMo will command a much better contract than Hicks will, and truth be told he deserves to go to a team that will use him as a RB.
    I do agree that Allison did a good job returning kicks, maybe we are planning on working him into the offense more.

    With our offense he should be able to stay fresh.

    mostly likely gonna use him in the offense more, which is smart
    but if we get hicks we have two good return men and thats never a bad thing

    We already have options at KR.
    I'd rather see the Vikings draft a RB with a 2nd day pick.

    If he can return punts, I would love him. Thats exactly what we need since Mewelde is probably leaving, a 3rd running back who can return punts.
