Vikings Trade Possibility

Recommended Posts

From CBS Sportsline

Tribune reported that there were early talks between the Vikings and Buccaneers that would send RB Chester Taylor and OT Bryant McKinnie to Tampa Bay in exchange for either a player or two and/or a package of draft picks. But the St. Paul Pioneer Press says that the Bucs are after Mewelde Moore but won't pay the Vikings' asking price of a first-day pick. Moore is scheduled to be a free agent after the season and is expected to test the marketplace. Even earlier Tuesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Vikings coach Brad Childress is planning on splitting the reps between Taylor and rookie Adrian Peterson, but with the Bucs hobbling at running back and left tackle, and in first place in the NFC South, those plans might change.

Do it, we are in rebuilding mode. Trade the two and make sure a 1st round draft pick is somehow in the equation.

I would pull the trigger if a 1st round draft pick is in the equation. Maybe AP will see the field more in the second half of a game confused.gif

I certainly wouldn't mind seeing McKinnie leave. Taylor, on the other hand, should stay. With Moore most likely leaving after this year, that would leave AP all by himself and I firmly believe a team needs two solid backs.

Send Moore along with McKinnie, instead of Taylor.

I agree they need two solid backs, but you have to utilize the two backs better than childress did last sunday!

Vikes trade there left tackle? Makes no sense. Who would you plug in there? Might not be having a banner year but still as good as anyone out there. Moore is more valuable as a backup to Taylor and Peterson. The idea of a trade is to better youself not the other team. If the Vikes could get a first rounder for Moore (who was a 4th himself) that would be a good deal, for MN

Artis Hicks. McKinnie is waaaay overpaid and overrated.

I don't think they will get first day draft picks, and they shouldn't if they aren't offered. I doubt any trade will go through. Mid-season trades are really rare in the NFL.

I'm just not a McKinnie fan. You're right, he's as good as most anyone else out there. So if he goes with Moore, we replace him with most anyone else out there and not lose anything.

IMO, this discussion is unnecessary. The Bucs aren't gonna give the Vikes the 1st round pick they want for Moore anyway, and in the end the Vikes won't get a darn thing for him.

I'd even settle for a second, or maybe even third round pick, if they just deal Moore.

The Vikes aren't asking for a 1st round for Moore but a 1st dap pick (Rounds 1-3) for Moore, which Tampa isn't willing to give up at this point. I don't think any trade involving Moore will include a 1st rounder unless we throw in McKinney and maybe a 3rd round pick.

Trades of players for picks in the NFL never seem to get fair value. There have been some deals in the past and it is suprising for a really good player you can usually only get a 2nd or 3rd for him. Sorry I don't have time to search and get the info. But maybe someone with a better memory or more time than me can give further details. One would be DC to the phins for a 2nd rounder. That guy was a top 3 qb until he got hurt.

The Vikes for Moore will probably get a 4th or 5th rounder. TB only wants to give up a 6th for him. If their current RB's don't do much this week, then they might be willing to give more for him.

I say trade Moore and McKinnie, but you need to get a player and a 1st or 2nd round pick. Or maybe more. McKinnie might need a change of scenery or a new offensive system. He sure hasn't done well the last 2 years here,but in the 2 years before that was doing real well. So, maybe it is coaching? I think if they can dump his WAY overpaid contract they should do it.

Keep Taylor, UNLESS they are giving you the farm for him and McKinnie.

McKinnie is overpaid, he's great at blocking the run and outside schemes (where the run is inside), he is terrible with an outside pass rush. How many times do we need to see a fast D-end just blow past him on the ouside for a sack in a passing situation.

In this case, the vikings don't need to get rid of anybody. They hold the cards, not Tampa. By trading the two this early in the season they will basically be saying that this is ANOTHER rebuilding year and that we shouldn't expect much.

Except, their advertising campaign told us to get our superbowl tickets. Thats all right, I'd love to see Dallas and New England go at it.

Unfortunately, I think their play has already told us that.

The Bucs traded for Michael Bennett for 08 and 09 undisclosed draft picks. Looks like all the Vikings RBs will be staying put.

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.  
    • FishinCT
      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1
      74 in big bay this morning.  Now I just need to find the fish.

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
    • Wanderer
      I was wondering how long it would take you to notice - and blame me!  It wasn’t there the weekend before the 4th I know!  We took my buddies duck boat with a surface drive motor out for the grand tour.   I looked for it and thought DANG Smurf’s gonna be pizzed!   Then I found you something real nice on the interweb you might be interested in.
