    You see, the reason free agency starts March 3rd is because it gives teams time to re-sign free agents whose contracts expire before cutting em loose...however, if Goodspeed wasn't under contract at the end of the season then the Vikes can pick him up because there is no conflicts with his previous team because he doesn't have one....

    Pretty sure thats the situation....if you look, he has no 2005 stats....
    Thanks, I see it now. The way it looked at close glance on Vikes.com was he ended the seaon with the Rams. Makes sense now.

    6 yards in 3 carries?

    I wonder what Childress sees in this guy?

    I'm sure they have a plan to use him to blow some openings in a line with another back behind him.

    I gotta feeling with all the college coaches on the staff, we're going to see some different formations on offense that we haven't seen for a long time.

    Re: Vikings Sign Godspeed

    Klinny needs to stay far away from the FB position he's much more valuable as a TE. He's one of the best Blockers at the TE position in the league, he also has very good hands and is alot faster then people think when he gets in the open field. I expect Childress will using alot of jimmy this season. Bad coaching can really screw up a players game. Jimmy has had good season's catching the football, this year it seemed as though he never even ran a route. Jimmy needs to be the starting TE period. No more of this wiggins full time stuff, he's great at what he does but Jimmy is far more multi demensional. Wiggins can't block, thats his major downside. At the TE position you need both, a blocker and a pass catcher.

    He's gonna block for our RB's, we'll let them carry the ball. Though he might be good in the redzone, we'll find out.

    Thank you. I have felt this way the past 2 years and feel Wiggy should have a package more geared towards just passing situations.

    You mean we may go with something other than one RB in the backfield and three WR's ???
    Shock horror :lol: maybe someone woke up to the fact that the OL alone can't always break the RB up the middle for a big gain.
    It's going to be fun trying to work out exactly what we will be playing in terms of offense this year. I can see that we really won't know anything until the opening offensive series in the regular season opener.
