    I'm excited to see Offord play back there at SS. I hope he stays healthy though.

    I like the thought of giving Offord a shot to flourish alongside a ball hawk like D-Sharp.

    Offord looked good last year before getting hurt right away.

    I like the signing. Let's just hope he can bring his game up to the next level and play like he was projected to when he was drafted.

    I dunno... He hits like a mack truck. That's something we need.
    Actually after seeing him play he hits like a freight train.

    Good signing confirms that Chavous will not return and I think we will draft somebody to compete with him for the starting job at strong safety.

    Re: Offord Signed

    Good move on the Vikings part. While we're all excited about Offord's chances of fighting for a starting spot opposite Sharper, but I think we're forgetting that Offord is Special Teams Captain too. Especially after our Special Teams were performing towards the end of the season, we need to upgrade that a bit too. Remember, we've lost too many games over the last 2 years thanks to long kick-returns and punt-returns against us, despite the recent upturn in our return teams, we need to continue to make our special teams dominant. And I think re-signing Offord will help that.

    "BIG HIT WILLIE"

    That is a nick that he deserves. He played exceptionally well in the GB playoff game. How well did he do last year? I didnt get to see many games and the ones I did he wasnt playing at all or much at all.

    He has tremdous upside, will he compete with Dustin Fox?
