    Re: Vikes interested in DE Marques Douglas

    This guy would fill a depth need at LDE but what this says to me is that between injury,attitude, and arrest the Vikings would rather not see Darrion Scott on the roster next year.

    Re: Vikes interested in DE Marques Douglas

    Like others have said, he would be a good pick up to add the depth to the LDE spot.
    This would give the Vikings much more freedom in day 1 of the draft.



    Love it that someone had to bring in his Madden status.

    Re: Vikes interested in DE Marques Douglas

    he would be playing next to the williams wall, and heck, his sack numbers couldnt possibly end up any worse than udeze's

    il bet derrick harvey goes top 10, so we will miss out on him..pick this guy up

    Kindof reading between the lines here, but he has been in the league 8 years.
    Signing a guy like him doesn't really hold true to the normal FA this staff likes to sign (coming off their first contract). Could this be an indicator that they are looking for a guy that will only hold the fort until Keneche comes back.

    ;D

    I know he doesn't quite fit in with your idea of how the front office approaches FA Marrdo but could he be good for a a couple of years until we can get a better DE via FA - say next year - or groom a DE via this years draft. That way there might not be so much pressure on a rookie DE coming in.

    As you say there is also the hope that Udeze comes back but I really wouldn't like to speculate how likely that is.
    I think you just said what I was trying to say.
    Sometimes Marrdro speak is hard to understand.
    ;D

    I agree, I see the signing of this guy (if it happens) nothing more than a stop gap to maybe Keneche coming back healthy or a guy stepping up this year (ala Mitchell/Merling).

    (Key note:
    I have been convinced that Merling is a better fit than Campbell and have the Vikes taking him in the first round at 17.
    ;D)
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    looking at the numbers, douglas virtually replaces whatever scott would give us anyways

    Re: Vikes interested in DE Marques Douglas

    I was trying to see if this rumor had gone anywhere.
    All I saw on that was more of the same: he's left Tampa and is now visiting the Titans.
    I also saw a few things that Douglas wrote.
    They're short and fairly interesting/entertaining:

    Why I Play Hard for the 49ers

    I remember personally, draft day. My name during that long weekend never got called. While sitting on my parents' couch in Greensboro, North Carolina, I wanted so badly for the commissioner to call my name, but that never happened.
    Here's the link to the rest of his stuff at yardbarker.com
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    If that's the case than I certainly don't want him on our team.
