There are alot of "Big Names" FA out there that we all would love to have on the team but I am curious who are some of the lesser known FA that could possibly come in and help the team, or would not surprise me if the Vikes take a look at. Rememebr we can't sign every "Big name" out there. Yes i would love it to :D, buit in reality we will sign a couple of guys like the Vinny Ciurciu, Shancoe (he was reallya "Big name" IMHO)
For me I just looked at positions of where I thought we had some need or depth but feel free to to agree or disagree. And I know most of you will
Aaron Morehead-was looked at last year by the Vikes and is a big WR. Was hurt last year but another one like Johnson in AZ that plays behind 2 stud WR and has not been given much of a chance. Would be cheap and a chance to be a solid reserve.
Eddie Drummond-Strictly a reserve but if the Vikes are really looking for a starting KR/PR and are not going to look at the draft, then he could be that type of player they are looking for.
Ben Utecht- Clark and Crumpler would be the obvious choice here to go for a TE and since LJ Smith I think would of came here had he not been franchised, With tat said I don't think Clark is going anywhere which leads us to Utecht.
He has ties here since he is local, and has done well when he has been given a chance to play. But he is a RFA so Ia m not sure what we would have to give up to sign him and would not want to see us get into a bidding war for him.
Sean Locklear- A nice young RT that has alot of upside, and of course anyother chance to take another player form the Seahags would be good for me.
LJ Shelton- Another Solid RT nothing great but plays solid and would help the line.
Max Starks- Another big player for the Right side. That has been a solid RT for the Steelers. He may want more money than what he is worth however.
Floyd "Pork Chop" Womak- He is not a stud but I just love his nickname :D
Ian Scott-Another player that the Vikes had a lot of interest in before.
A decent DT that could fill in for Pat Williams when needed.
Justin Smith-Should he be considered in this group? I believe so. He IMHO outside of Some one like ODom could easily be the DE that gets signed by the Vikes. He is one of those players that just seems to do play well but is stuck on a team of loud mouths and criminals so he kind of gets forgotten about. Had a off year in Sacks(2) But edwards and Sith would make a nice combo at DE.
Drayton Florence- Another player that has played solid but gets forgotten about with Cromratie and Jammer playing in the same secondary. Would make a nice complement to the secondary. Wopuld also allow Griffith to make the Move to Safety where I think they will start looking at him moving to.
Jacques ReevesDepending upon moves in the secondary could come in and play a Nickle CB or even possibly start opposite Winfield and do a good job.
Randall Gay-Lets all jump on the Gay band wagon shall we? Another product of the Patroits system? Could add depth to the CB position.
Yeremiah Bell-Has a history of injuries so not my choice but he does belong on this list. Was one of the more solid players for The Dolphins but hurt his achillies in the season opener this past year.
But if he is fully healed could come in a be a solid player for someone, if not the vikes.
Madieu Williams Solid FS that like Smith Does a decent job despite being surrounded by the team he has.
