I always find it difficult to get excited about a kicker. I know the Leber stuff is in another thread, but it looks like the deal could be close to reality based on this gibberish.
A deal with Leber could be reached as early as today, his agent said this morning.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The way we work is the first team we visit is the team we feel weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get a deal done with that day,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Jeff Nalley, who also was en route to the Twin Cities to work on a deal. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Seven teams called us [Friday] night. The Vikings are No. 1 on our list.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Leber, a 6-3, 244-pound outside linebacker, was limited to nine games in 2005 because of a foot injury. When healthy, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s considered a good fit for the coverage and pass rushing skills required for the VikingsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Cover 2 defense.
