    Wouldn't it be a feel good story if this cat made the team?

    Re: Tim Mattran at Vikings training camp - photo slideshow

    Do you think they would keep him though? It looks like they have him playing G, which would seem to limit his opportunities.

    I would like to see the following:

    Mac
    hutch
    Birk
    Herrera
    Cook

    Reserves

    Sullivan
    Mattran
    Radovich
    Jones


    not sure how many linemen they will keep

    They won't keep Mattron or Jones over Hicks, imo.
    Granted Hicks does have a higher salary than he's worth, but if something happens, he's the only one with experience from your list.
    We have a lot of competition for those backup slots, have to remember they may want to keep Mozes, and Chase or Marcus Johnson as well

    Why woudl they not keep Marcus Johnson, especially since he has been running some of the plays with the first team.
    Mattran makes more sense on the practice squad, especially since most teams won't even know who he is.

    Also, they have alot invested in Chase Johnson, timewise.
    I doubt that they expose him to other teams as well.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    But for the most part those guys haven't been worth a shit on game day so if they have a chance to dump some salary and get a player with more upside for the future why keep baggage on the roster?

    Hicks sucks, I don't know that mozes is the answer anywhere and Chase, well maybe is OK and maybe he isn't.
