    Leber news story

    The week before I broke my foot, Merriman had jumped into
    the starting role."

    So we're overpaying a backup from another team to play linebacker for us. Just like we did with chester taylor....just wonderful...

    Re: Leber news story

    Webby or ultra, please save all of this chicks posts about Taylor and Leber and make her eat her words later. Too bad we don't have defensive playmaker as our owner because then we'd have a pro-bowler at every position and we would have signed at least nine of them yesturday. Three on the first day is pathetic and don't give me this crap about us signing the most in the league because defensiveplaymaker wouldn't have wasted her time with those losers.

    Re: Leber news story

    you assume this because merriman was their first round pick? ofcourse they want to start merriman. anyways leber is good at covering which is what our defense needs, not another linebacker who stands there and just tackles people.

    LINEBACKER

    Ben Leber (Minnesota) – Ben Leber is a good linebacker and should excel in the Tampa-2 type defensive scheme that will be utilized in Minnesota. With the ability to drop into coverage effortlessly while playing the run on a better than average level, Leber will become an instant starter and player to be looked upon for his leadership qualities. This signing is one of the best from day one in the free agent player signing period.


    Hope this clears the air a little bit for you.. He is a very good, quick LB that will do very well in our system..

    He's not a MLB. He can play there in a pinch, but that's not his natural position.

    Re: Leber news story

    Q: Will you continue to be aggressive in free agency?
    A: Well we have a few different things we're looking at, but we wanted to jump out here today with these guys. We were very aggressive with these guys. We still have a couple more things that we're looking at.
