    Re: Replacing Rice

    Edwards has been a disappointment throughout his career due to inconsistent hands. Jones was a star in the playoffs last year, has way less tread on the tires having played behind Jennings and Driver, and less issues. Sure, the extra size is nice, but I think I'd rather have Jones. Specially if he costs significantly less.

    Did you hear Rodgers talking about him? Called him priority no.1! Actually, given Driver's age, I kinda think the Packers would be silly to let him walk away so easily.

    Re: Replacing Rice

    Hopefully we get Jones, he's young and has a lot of upside. Any updates on that situation? Been googling it, but can't seem to find any new info.

    Re: Replacing Rice

    Nothing to report. Vikings are in talks with his agent, and a deal SHOULD be done soon, but we've all heard that before...

    So who went after Dnabb? Seriously, isn't that getting old?

    First,

    1. Why even put up Moss. He plays Berrians position. Why oh why would we have two cats on the field running deep. Didn't we see that that doesn't work last year?

    Both Moss and Berrian can't fill the void left by Rice as neither one wants to work the middle.

    We need someone who can take the pressure off of the 8 and 9 route and clear the underneath for Percy to work his magic. Shanc will help, so will Rudy, but we still need that big possesion kindof guy.

    2. V-Jax and Plax are the next two guys that can best fill that void. V-jax seems to be ready to sign his tender. That leaves Plax, who appears to be ready to run back to the Giants.

    3. The rest of the class......(in priority order I think)...

    Malcom Floyd is available.
    Mike Williams is available.
    Sims-walker is available.
    Legedu Naanee is available.

    4. On the roster.....(Looks like the team anticipated losing Rice as they've loaded up on big boys)

    Devin Aromashodu - One good game does a playmaker not make.
    Emmanuel Arceneaux - Interesting prospect with CFL experience, but again, nothing to set the bank on.
    Freddie Brown - Has the size.
    Stephen Burton - Has the size (6'1"/221) but is a bit short. Not sure of his leaping ability/body control.

    My vote, go after Floy and hope that ARomashodu or Arceneaux can come through and give you some good reps this year.
    Roy Williams... Not Mike.

    Why am I a troll? I simply think the team should get James Jones... is he not liked on this site?

    Please take it easy on me, this new "Football Forum" stuff is big and scary to me.

    Re: Replacing Rice

    I just hope Rice does good in Seattle. Look at what happened to Nate Burleson when he went to Seattle. He was a good #2 receiver while he was playing in MN, but when he had to be the #1 receiver he didn't do so well and it carried over to Seattle.

    Nope, Mike Williams was a FA. Why in the hell would I want Roy Williams on the team.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
