    Spencer Johnson to Buffalo

    [size=12pt]Spencer Johnson to Buffalo[/size]

    Johnson just sent a text message to confirm he has received a five-year deal from the Buffalo Bills...

    I thought highly of Spencer at times but the team decided to move on. Plus a five year deal is pretty good.

    We really need to add compition and PASS RUSH a the DT position, if there's a guy there at #17 i think we should go after him.

    too bad, quality backup, im sure he might be able to earn the starting position in Buffalo.



    sad to see some of the good players leaving, Moore, T-Rich, DT, Johnson, etc but in the long run none of them will be major losses to us, they deserve better chances to start else where (well, t-rich didn't need to get a new starting job but we release him so..)

    I wanted to keep TRich too but understanding that we had plan to get Topeh and Richardson is 36 it makes sense.

    Plus i'm really liking the Topeh signing more and more, its turn out he's a bruising blocker and has been since he was a gopher. He's gonna do a great job blocking for Peterson.

    Moore is the one guy i hate to loose but its not like Childress was utilizing him, he's a very good player but he hasn't proven wether he can handle a load. He never seemed to get along with coaching staff either, the Tice or Childress era.

    I liked Spencer.
    Do we still have Evans?

    I think so. Is he out of jail?

    Re: Spencer Johnson to Buffalo

    Spencer wasn't really a good fit for the defense we run.
    He just doesn't fit the 3 gap scheme we run because of his size and inability to eat up blockers.

    We need a guy who has a bit more ass that can collapse the pocket and take a couple three defenders with him allowing our LB'rs. DE's and Kevin room to roam.

    Long story short, I see this as a loss of no significance.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
