    Re:Vikings beef up their backfield

    Remember that Toby missed a lot of the camps because of that school issue. It would be difficult for them to make any assessment on Toby. I would imagine that they are looking more at Young, Reynaud and Johnson. One, two or all may not be cutting it.

    OTOH maybe they thought they can get good experience and a guy that can step right in for cheap.

    Gotta agree, the experience and maturity Moats brings is bigger than most think. He has really had to fight through adversity, something Adrian maybe could learn from.

    Also, I have never been a fan of Young or Johnson, Moats looks like a clear upgrade over them and has a lot of experience with similar systems.

    Re:Vikings beef up their backfield

    RB competition is always a good thing, pushes all those young guys to fight for those two (possibly three w/ practice squad potential) spots behind Peterson.

    Either way, with Reynaud, Young, Johnson, Moats, and Gerhart, its possible that one of these guys would be cut early in camp - especially if an injury occurs at some other position and they need to bring in more depth there. Happens all the time.

    There are a lot of people questioning this move in the article posted by the original poster, and if any of you doubt this signing, just remember; any camp competition is a good thing. 80 people come in, 53 make the squad. Make them work for it
