    Eric Weddle would be a great pick up for the Vikings and one that makes a ton of sense. We have heard rumblings all offseason that the Vikes should be interested in this solid productive safety.

    Nice to see that Frazier and the front office agree.

    Fraizer was a DB, a secondary coach and a DC. He knows that at least one of our current starting safeties should not be starting.

    I just hope we get him. He can't be any worse than either of our current starters at S..

    He was an All-Pro safety last year. This guy would be a perfect fit for us.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Not only would Weddle be a perfect fit but we would finally have a total badass in the secondary! He is a playmaker..cut Madeu and move on. He is a game changer
    None

    He's listed at 5'11" but I think he's a little shorter. That's usually a concern for a safety. But this guy is tremendous and would be the best safety the Vikings have had in awhile.

    Even though he would cost some coin, he would be worth it as a key player for a long time.

    Weddle is a leader, a tough sonafabithch, and a good kid. He is a go to guest on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan...head is screwed on correctly. Hope this happens, a Sirius upgrade IMO.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Re: vikings call on Eric weddle

    I like the idea of getting him, especially if we can save some cash over M-will, but does anyone really think that Leslie is the one asking for a replacment?

    Lets not forget that glowing endoursement Leslie gave M-will.

    I see the FO pukes saying no to the coaching staff and going after someone they think will make us better. Maybe at the request of our new D-coord perhaps.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Yes, I bet he is the one asking for a replacement. Lets not forget how excited we all were to get M-Will, but ever since his neck injury, he just hasn't seemed nearly the same.

    Les was a DB, Les was a secondary coach, Les was a DC. I'm willing to bet he likes Weddle, and wants us to at the very least guage the interest and see what it woudl take to get him.

    If Fraizer is hell-bent on keeping M-Will then IMO it's no better than Childress who hung onto the TJ project for 5 years.
