    Re: Vikes ink next Gates?

    Defidently is worth a look. If he can in fact run what his agent says that is. Just because his agent says he has amazing hands and is that fast doesnt mean it is in fact true....only time will tell.

    The Vikings have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Todd Lowber, who has never played organized football.

    So why did the Vikings sign him?
    Didn't see this posted anywhere but, a little small for a TE...
    As others have said, the article says he's a WR.
    Bring him through mini-camps and into TC.
    If he's worthy, put him on the practice squad and then send him to Europe next year.


    Wonder how much the contract is for?

    Yes, I know that now, the reference to Gates was misleading, hence the reason I said TE.

    "He's a freakish athlete with unbelievable hands," Ulrich said. "There's no one on par with him athletically in the NFL right now."

    That's agent-speak / hype.

    Translation:

    "freakish athlete" - "He may be using steroids." or "He should be in a circus sideshow."

    "unbelievable hands" - "I can't believe he dropped so many passes."

    "no one on par with him athletically in the NFL" - "He is not ready for the NFL now.
    But I don't want to say that, explicitly.
    I hope to buy time for him to get in shape."
    ;D
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    If he was ONLY the next Steve Jordan, I would be more than satisfied.
    Maybe he is our missing #1 WR???
    If that's the case, who needs CJ?
    LOL
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Lesnar or Gates

    TE, which is not based on route running, might be easier than thinking he can be a WR right away.

    Worth a try, but I wouldn't waste too much time thinking about his potential to have potential.
