    Re: Vikings Make Contact With Hutchinson

    I really really hope that they are not going to be signing Chester Taylor as our #1 RB. This would not be much of an upgrade if any. With the amount of cap room I have no idea why they would not at least make a run at James, it just seems silly not to.


    Get Hutchinson in here! If we can sure up the line and land a couple studs like this it might not matter who's running back there!

    Re: Vikings Make Contact With Hutchinson

    Singer is right that other teams probably got the jump on some FAs. We can only call so many people at once. I do not understand why everyone is down on Chester Taylor. Sure he was a backup to Jamal Lewis ( a person that rushed for 2000 yards) that the Ravens wanted to give anothr chance. If you watched the Ravens you would have seen Taylor get more touches as the year progressed and he did very well. He can be a good fit for the WCO. If we don't get Edge, I wouldn't mind Taylor.

    Re: Vikings Make Contact With Hutchinson

    I think thats a good signing. We'd be solid at OL for years to come. Man! Hutchinson is an amazing guard. Commanding 6 million a year is asking somewhat a lot though, I'm not sure if I'd give him that much.

    Thanks for the Sig LitlHarsh

    I am sorry to be critical, but if this is any indication how our offseason is going to go, we are in serious trouble. We can't go after career backups and expect to be in contention for a SB.
    Perhaps some other teams got the jump on us & he has interviews already set up for awhile.

    I hear ya Singers, but if that was the case why don't they say James has meetings scheduled with, and put all the teams that have meetings scheduled with him in there? Brees has meetings scheduled with New Orleans, and Miami this weekend, and they said that. I just think that the Vikes are really high on Taylor, and don't want to go after any of the other rb's. If that is the case, I would rather stick with Moore, and Smith and save the money.. You know what I mean?

    Taylor isn't going to command that much money. He is an upgrade.

    Don't we have to give up two first round picks to get a guy off of the transition tag? I thought I had read that someplace. If that were the case I would want Bentley and move him to guard. But I can deal with Hutchinson! He's a beast.

    Because I don't believe the Vikings organization is going to go public with all there moves.

    They sure made it a point to let everyone know that they were meeting with Chester Taylor today :angry5: They also have made it a point to let everyone know they have made contact with Steve Hutchinson :cheers:

    I just don't think they have any desire to go after James, Brees, or any of the 3 top kickers Vanderjagt, Vinateri, or Longwell. :cry:
