    Vikings give Berrian a cap-friendly contract

    As they have done routinely in recent years, the Vikings crafted a salary cap-friendly contract with wide receiver Bernard Berrian that allows more than half of his guaranteed money to count against their 2008 salary cap...

    Good work by the front office, keeping us competetive with plenty of cap room now and in the future.

    That's why I think we are gonna be at least an above average team for many years to come.
    Because Robby B is a cap genius.
    Gotta love it.

    As some here call him Brz-cheapski, today I'll call him Brz-smartski. ;D Nice job.

    I think I am the only one who calls him Bryzcheapski.
    ;D

    Why is it a smart job?
    Sure it makes sure that alot of our windfall that we have this year is used and we won't be paying it all on the back end, however, I wonder if the fact that we allocated over half of the CAP available this year on Berrian is smart from a bigger picture perspective, however, maybe it is also the reason we didn't get to sign one of the more pricey DE (i.e. Odom).

    It will take about 5-7 Mill to sign our rookie class, Tapeh and Williams will take a chunk.
    Wonder how much is really left for a DE?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    So, how do you think they have cap room to spare every year and they consistently sign people that they want?
    I'm guessing that Brzezinski knows what he's doing and I say he is the best at the game that there is regarding the cap.
    His thoughts are integrative and comprehensive, not linear like the typical 'list-maker' hack.

    It is swings and roundabouts.. if we'd used a huge chunk to get a DE then it could be said that there might be enough to get a decent WR, Instead we went for a WR and will then look for DE's either by trade or draft.
    Have to admire the guy for at least putting in a position to make some sort of run at FA as opposed to being in cap hell like some teams are.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    We actually did make a run at all the top DE's.
    The problem is that none of them really made it past their first visit.
