    Huh????

    What "has beans"? We drafted Hovan out of college. We picked up Lesnar as a rookie FA. Don't remember if we drafter Fisk or not but I don't think he was that old either.

    As far as this guy goes, maybe he will be a good backup. I gues Childress saw something from him.

    [size=18px]Vikings' newest signing adds depth to DT position[/size]

    By Eric Krupka on June 8, 2006 09:27 PM

    On Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms with defensive tackle Ross Kolodziej. The five-year veteran was drafted in the seventh round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the New York Giants . This will be his fourth team in five years; his most recent stop was as a member of the Arizona Cardinals .

    Kolodziej, who has been somewhat of a journeyman so far in his career, saw his most extensive playing time this past season, which makes it no surprise that he posted career highs in games (16), starts (14), tackles (23)and sacks (three).

    As a member of the Giants from 2001-2003 he appeared in 10 games, started one and had a total of just four tackles. He spent the '03 season with the 49ers but never saw action on the field. From 2004-2006 he was a member of the Cardinals, and played in 29 of a possible 32 games, while starting in 18.

    Since entering the league Kolodziej has been somewhat of a project, and slowly but surely has improved. In his collegiate days at the University of Wisconsin, current Vikings coaches--head coach Brad Childress, assistant offensive line coach Jim Hueber and assistant special teams coach Brian Murphy--were all part of the Badgers' coaching staff. Its plausible that they see something in him that could help translate a spot for Kolodziej at least on the practice squad. With Kevin Williams and Pat Williams forming a dominating duo at the starting defensive tackle positions, and two solid backups in CJ Mosley and Spencer Johnson, it is somewhat of a curious pickup.

    This is just speculation, but there could possibly be something that Childress or defensive line coach Brian Baker saw in their backups that worried them. Or they may just feel like they needed someone to push Mosley and Johnson.

    In any event, depth is crucial in the NFL and the signing of Kolodziej gives the Vikings a competent backup No. 5 tackle in case of injury and solidifies the team's depth at the position.

    Good move by the Vikes and hopefully will light a fire under the backups who may be tempted to think that they'll have an easy ride in TC. Think this sends a message to all the backups that nothing is a given this year.

    Comment:
    His best qualities may be his first step quickness off the snap of the ball, and he has some explosiveness and the ability to beat a lot of offensive guards through the hole. He is not what you would call an accomplished pass rusher, but when he can be in moving situations, whether it's a one gap penetrating scheme, or on blitzes and stunts, he can be very effective, and a little bit of a disruptive force. He is not a player who you want battling in a short area fistfight at the point of attack, and he is not a two gap read and react stack and shed type.
