    Longwell visiting MN

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/300677.html


    Packers kicker Ryan Longwell has joined the list of free agents who are visiting the Vikings today, the team confirmed this afternoon.

    Longwell, who has spent all nine of his NFL seasons in Green Bay, has a career field goal accuracy percentage of 86.1. He made 20 of 27 field goals (74.1) last year.

    In 2004, he made 24 of 28 (85.7), including a pair of game-winners against the Vikings. The second one came at the Metrodome on Christmas Eve and gave the Packers their third consecutive NFC North division title.

    Other free agents known to be visiting today are Chargers linebacker Ben Leber and Ravens running back Chester Taylor. The team has confirmed only the visits by Longwell and Leber.

    A deal with Leber could be reached as early as today, his agent said this morning.

    “The way we work is the first team we visit is the team we feel we’ll get a deal done with that day,” said Jeff Nalley, who also was en route to the Twin Cities to work on a deal. “Seven teams called us [Friday] night. The Vikings are No. 1 on our list.”

    Leber, a 6-3, 244-pound outside linebacker, was limited to nine games in 2005 because of a foot injury. When healthy, he’s considered a good fit for the coverage and pass rushing skills required for the Vikings’ Cover 2 defense.

    I wouldn't mind getting Longwell. He's had a solid career and would never hurt for him to kick a game winner against the Pack for us.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    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.
