    Vikings release rookie T Joe Anoai & OL Andy Olemgbe

    [size=13pt]Rookie tackle released[/size]

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 by Mark Craig

    Dear Loyal Zulgadians:

    Your tireless leader (man, I need one of those Seifert links right here) was taking in the Twins game on his day off when he called to report that the Vikings have released Joe Anoai, a rookie defensive tackle from Georgia Tech. Anoai was signed as a free agent following the draft.

    That is all,

    Judd’s caddy

    Hello again,

    Another rookie free-agent Viking I never heard of just got released: Texas Southern OL Andy Olemgbe. And the Vikings also officially announced the signing of rookie seventh-round draft pick Chandler Williams, who is A, a receiver from Florida International; B, the 233rd overall draft pick and C, someone I had heard of.

    that is all … again.

    Well at least Anoai will have a chance to make it as a pro-wrestler.

    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/dt/joeanoai.html

    Joe Anoai
    Height: 6-21/2 | Weight: 303 | 40-Time: 5.01

    Strengths:
    A decent athlete with good quickness and speed...Has an outstanding motor...A solid pass rusher who can penetrate...Tough and a very hard worker...Versatile with experience at tackle and end...Loves the game...A team leader...Productive.

    Weaknesses:
    Needs to get stronger...Is not overly stout at the point of attack...Size and bulk are just average...Can do a better job versus the run...Has a limited pass rush repertoire...Dealt with some injuries and durability is an issue...Not much upside.

    Notes:
    He hails from a family of professional wrestlers in the WWE, including his brother ("Rosey") and cousin ("Rikishi")...Father ("Sika") and uncle ("Afa") wrestled as the "Wild Samoans" tag team...Cousin, Afa Anoai, plays football at Connecticut...Nice player whose best role may be as a backup or wave type...Possible 3-technique

    When Bhawoh Jue was with the Slackers I used to say his Mom named him by shooting craps with a handful of Scrabble tiles.

    Now we just need to cut Shiancoe and Ciurciu and sign some more Smiths.

    Just kidding, I'm just pissed because I bought a Olemgbe jersey.
