    Not sure why they are looking at Buchanon if Bodden is still in play.

    Maybe his asking price is just a bit out of Byrzcheapskis limits.
    More likely, his asking price IS MORE THAN THE VIKINGS ARE ALLOWED TO GIVE HIM BECAUSE OF THE RESTRICTIONS ON THE FINAL FOUR TEAMS FROM 2009.

    Dear God, Marty! If you're going to position yourself as a Great Football Mind, then you need to make sure you have a handle on the basics.

    Right now, the Vikings can sign a UFA only up to the value of the contract that the Bears gave Chester or up to the value that the Redskins gave Hicks. That's it. Doesn't matter what they would like to give someone, they cannot go beyond those two deals.

    Well, I could have said it the way you did, however, my football mind was in a hurry. Instead, I just said it this way....

    Maybe his asking price is just a bit out of Byrzcheapskis limits.
    My apologies I wasn't exact enough with my verbiage to articulate my thought to the level that made sense to you.....

    Next time I will include pictures. :huh:
    You've got to stop reading my posts, I think they're rubbing off on you.
    LOL. Quit. I forget sometimes that Z is a bit of a knit picker and sometimes doesn't read read between the lines to well.

    Glad he is around though. Keeps us on our toes.
    Yes, that's right. I'm picking nits when I point out the fallacy in what you post.

    Sorry, dude, but typing "Not sure why they are looking at Buchanon if Bodden is still in play." is just plain wrong. It's not nit-picking to point out that he is not, in fact, in play at all for the Vikings.
    Why isn't he in play oh wise one?

    Because we would have to sign him within the contractual constraints that are centered around the players that we already lost?

    Are you trying to now convince me that your "God" Bryzcheapski isn't smart enough to work a contract that could work within those constraints?

    Gimme a break. You stepped out, without thought, and are now trying to cover it up.
    He isn't in play because he won't be signing a contract as small as Chester's. That is crystal clear. 3 years, $7 million guaranteed, $12.5 million total. That's not what Bodden wants or will get.

    There's NOTHING that the Vikings can do to get around that. That is also crystal clear, for those who choose to read what has been written on the situation, rather than indulge in asinine nicknames and outside speculation.

    They can't sign him for more than $7 million guaranteed. They can't sign him for more than $12.5 million total. They can't sign him for more than 3 years. That is the restriction. And it is iron-clad, no monkeying around stuff.

    I'm not trying to cover anything up. I understand what the process is. You, clearly, do not, if you believe that a creative contract could be written to circumvent the restrictions.

    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    That is not my understanding. The terms (including the length of the deal) have to be the same. However, I'm not totally sure on that one, so I'll see what I can dig up.
