    Rosenthal out

    From startribune.com

    Rosenthal out, more to come
    Thursday, March 1st, 2007 by Kevin Seifert The Vikings have informed OL Mike Rosenthal that he will be released, agent Joe Linta said today. It’s the first confirmed departure of a day that’s also expected to include the release of TE Jermaine Wiggins and possibly CB Fred Smoot as well.

    There had been indications last week that the Vikings planned to keep Rosenthal, albeit at a salary less than the $1.425 million his contract called for. Instead, they will jettison him altogether. Rosenthal started three games last season, but it’s clear the Vikings see youngsters Ryan Cook and Marcus Johnson as more viable long-term options at right tackle.

    Rosenthal was one of the classiest men in the Vikings locker room and will be missed.

    Meanwhile, Linta said he is still negotiating with the Vikings on behalf of another client, G/C Jason Whittle. If the sides do not agree to a deal by tonight, Whittle will become an unrestricted free agent.

    What about Artis Hicks please cut him and get somebody that can play!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Yeah, no kidding.. All of these former Eagles didn't do a dam thing for us last season.. Hopefully Childress learned from his mistakes.. We can't put Donte Stallworth under that label, as he made a name for himself while with the Saints..

    The Vikings released offensive tackle Mike Rosenthal Thursday, one day after the release of quarterback Brad Johnson.

    It's beginning to look to me like the Vikes may be doing more in the FA period that is let on by the Vikes.
