    There is no basis for this speculation. This is nothing more than a columnist forcing a story.

    Apparently San Diego will let Sproles test free agency. This should help limit places for Taylor to go.

    I'm not a fan of any of these RB's with mileage, even in limited use.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    The Vikings should have drafted Darren Sproles instead of Ciatrick Fason. I said so then, I still say so now.

    With Harvin and Peterson on the roster, the Vikings may not need Sproles, but that missed pick is another 2005 draft blunder.

    Re:Vikings may have interest in Westbrook

    was anyone watching SportsCenter tonight? Scott Van Pelt did a phone interview with Brian Westbrook. During the interview, Westbrook started off by praising Philadelphia and coach Andy Reid. then he just came out of nowhere and said "I look forward to the many wonderful years of worshiping Howard Stearn's prostate." SVP was just like, "oh we're gonna have that now?" and the line went dead. it was probably the most hilarious thing i have ever seen on tv.

    Without injuries??????? Have you looked at how he performed in the playoffs of late?

    Additionally, I'm not so sure why everyone says he is so good at catching passes. One would think people would take a look at thier stats for last year and one would see that CT is far and beyond a better fit for that. Hell even Westbrook has better numbers than LT even after being out alot of time last year.

    Personally, I think we should have 9 threads on this topic.

    LT's become secondary in their offense. Sproles has been in alot of third downs catching passes too, which takes away from LT's chances.

    He's been injured the past two seasons, and played through. Can't really say if that will be an ongoing thing or not, but I bet those foot injuries really slowed this runningbacks production (see what I did there?).

    He's not going to put up 1200 yards as a backup and lead us to a superbowl if thats what people are thinking, but he'd be a nice substitute for CT, much better than Albert Young would be. (don't even try to convince me otherwise, LT is better than a guy who's never been off practice squad)

    But after all is said and done, I still don't want either LT or Westbrook on the Vikings next year unless they come dirt cheap.
