    DOSS TO VIKINGS

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that free-agent safety Mike Doss signed a one-year, $1 million contract on Tuesday night with the Minnesota Vikings.

    Doss likely will be penciled in as the starting strong safety in Minnesota's Tampa 2 defense, which is the same scheme that the Colts use.
    He'll be paired with veteran Darren Sharper.

    The former Ohio State standout is the fourth member of the Colts' defense to leave in the wake of the team's Super Bowl XLI victory.
    Cornerback Nick Harper signed with the Titans and weakside linebacker Cato June joined the Bucs.
    Defensive tackle Montae Reagor was released, and signed with the Eagles.

    On offense, receiver Brandon Stokley was released.
    He later signed with the Broncos.

    Surprisingly, however, none of the Colts free agents were able to parlay their Super Bowl pedigrees into huge paydays.
    In past years, teams were more likely to overpay members of the Super Bowl champion, largely for the "sizzle" factor that comes from saying, "We might never win a Super Bowl of our own, but at least one of our players recently has."

    WOW


    1 year deal really doesn't say much other than "lets see how ya do" and we will talk long term later.

    Doss, Tank Williams, Dwight Smith, Darren Sharper, and Greg Blue.
    Someone should be able to stay healthy in this group
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I wish we could move one or two of those guys to corner. I'm all for Griffin starting but we could certainly use another veteran CB as a nickelback. Our D is good but very young. Which is exciting if it all pans out.

    Thanks Josdin!

    Strange that we signed him though:
    On May 29, 2005 Doss was charged with a felony weapons charge and three misdemeanor charges in Akron, Ohio after police estimated hearing five to six gunshots outside a local restaurant. He was sentenced to 40 hours of community service and a one thousand dollar fine after pleading no contest to the charges. Colts coach Tony Dungy has said Doss would be disciplined by the team.

    I'm sure Frazier vouched for his character.
    I just don't get signing more safeties.
    I have huge man-love for Greg Blue - this would seem to indicate that the Vikings do not.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I also remember him getting hurt early last year.
    I think it was a torn ACL, but I can't find a link to confirm.
