    Re: Napo signs with Chefs

    Napo would have been re-signed were this not a ridiculous market for players.
    He will likely be overpaid with the cheifs.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Is anyone else getting a little worried that the Vikings have not signed anyone significant yet?
    I'm not sure what's going on, but they need to sign some guys quickly.
    IMO, the Triangle of Authority ( not just Childress ) is holding to their plan to get young players who will be around for a long run at several championships.

    Harris was one of the 'older' LBs on the roster, although he is still young, and he played well last year.



    Greenway will step in and probably do as well as he did in pre-season last year.

    D.
    Thomas is still around, and may be a good backup.

    IIRC, Farwell did OK as a sub last year, and Ciuriu is a ST player who might be OK if pressed into duty due to injury.

    A rookie drafted on Day 2 might complete the needed depth, and alleviate concerns about the entire LB corp.


    I do not think it's an age issue.


    Nap is only 28 and should be in his prime.

    It was a nice run

    Linebacker Napoleon Harris agreed to terms today with Kansas City. NFL.com reports that Harris will sign a six-year contract worth $24 million, including $7.5 guaranteed.

    The Vikings had made minimal attempts to keep Harris, having committed long-term contracts to LBs E.J. Henderson and Ben Leber. Also, their first-round draft pick in 2006, Chad Greenway, has recovered from a torn ACL that forced him to miss all of his rookie year.

    It’s not yet clear how the Vikings will align their linebackers in 2007. Either Leber or Henderson could move inside, with Greenway replacing one of them on the outside, or the Vikings could draft a middle linebacker next month. Finally, free agent LB Vinny Ciurciu, who signed a three-year contract worth $3 million Saturday, could also fit into the mix.

    For those keeping track, the Vikings now have one player remaining from their 2005 trade of WR Randy Moss. That, of course, is WR Troy Williamson.

    Re: Napo signs with Chefs

    I am mainly worried because we didn't target a replacement for him at MLB.
    We need to figure out something, otherwise our pass defense will suck next season too!

    I'm pretty sure the plan is to without an MLB next year.

    There were many uncertainties in the LB crew last year, before pre-season, and at the time the season began.
    Tomlin said 'don't worry' (paraphrased), but many fans still worried.
    I think there are enough viable options with Henderson and Greenway, and perhaps D.Thomas, to replace Harris at MLB.
    If not, they might get lucky and find and sign a 'Biekert', set free from another teams roster, a few weeks before the start of the season.

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    That option is not doing much for lowering my blood pressure and anxiety attacks!

    I only suggested it as a 'last resort option'.
    There are other options for MLB, like EJHenderson or Greenway or D. Thomas.
    Without Cottrell around to confuse young LBs like EJ and DT, there may be hope for one of them to start as MLB after all.
