Seller's market for tight ends
Chicago Bears: Bears need help at tight end - chicagotribune.com
They better get Shanc a deal this year. Drafting one is out of the question.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Shianc has not done anything the past 2 years to warrant any kind of big money deal, if he is willing to get an "ok" deal here then cool, but if he wants paying then no thanks. Glimpses I've seen of Rudolph I have been impressed with, his size and hands, kid looks a player.

Shank is on the decline and even if he was a Viking next season I see his production go down a ton since Rudolph will see alot more playing time and he has better hands than shank. Save the money for another player is what I say.

Can't get an instant fix in this draft class and FA looks pretty slim. Leaves you with Shanc. Of course that doesn't mean you give top dollar though.
Besides, I'm not so sure that Shanc was used as much in the passing game as he was in the blocking game last year, much like we saw his first year on the team.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Again, based on our need, a crappy draft class and not much out there in the way of FA that we can afford, I think we see Shanc back and a bit more productive.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I think we should try and get shank back at market value, which shouldn't break the bank.
I expect Rudolph will have a lot more involvement this year and could takeover as the primary TE target for Ponder, but having Shank on the roster with him for another year or two is probably money well spent.

Now I'm not sure if he would be cheap to get but that would be what would make more sense with our rebuilding team.Minnesota Vikings : Simply the best

Just promote Allen Reisner and roll with him and RudyI am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

I think it is safe to say that any inline TE that has even marginal skills, will get over paid this year.
Because of that, I think its safe to say that Shanc might not be back. Not because of his attitude, but because of what he will make and that is probably more than we can pay this year.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
