    Vikings make offer to keep Evans, Tahi

    [size=13pt]Vikings make offer to keep Evans, Tahi[/size]

    By CHIP SCOGGINS and JUDD ZULGAD, Star Tribune staff writers

    The Vikings submitted qualifying offers Wednesday to a pair of restricted free agents, defensive tackle Fred Evans and fullback Naufahu Tahi, according to a league source.

    The Vikings did not tender their other two restricted free agents -- defensive ends Otis Grigsby and Jayme Mitchell.

    I'm glad they want to keep Fred Evans.
    Tahi? maaaan come on haha, maybe just keep him for TC and bring in an actual FB.

    If they don't make an offer for Mitchell I'll be very very disappointed

    Yea he's definitely "replaceable" but the guy is a great relief DE, he's got a great motor on him.
    I'm biased tho, i've been a fan since the first time i saw him at TC.
    Its a luxury to have him - and he's not very expensive

    Yah only reason I feel he is replacable is because he is comin off a serious injury

    Had he played this year and spelled Allen I feel he coulda racked up 5 sacks in spot duty

    I love Jayme.. He is a good edge rusher

    These moves were very foolish. We should have signed them with a tender that has some compensation. This would have scared off potential suitors...
    Evans was a UFA so we would get nothing back in return, right?

    Cuz it would cost like 1.5 mill or so to get a pick I believe wouldn't it?

    And if someone signs Evens it wouldn't be that big of a loss at all

    Tahi did Ok considering his role. FB's have kind of gone the way of the dinosaur.

    we'd get a 7th round pick, we'd get nothing for tahi bc he was a undrafted FA...
