Apparently he has reached an agreement with the Vikings.

I can already hear PA's call... Cassel drops back, he's looking deep, he's got Jennings down the sideline...touchdown!!!

I've got a feeling we'll be hearing that more than once. grin

Early word.. 5 year deal. Be interesting how high he pushed them. I figured no one in the league would do more than a three year... This my have been the way to get him his desired money stretched over a longer period.

Good Luck!

Sorry, quick correction from an above post.

PA states, "Ponder exits the game completely in hand, 29 of 30 for 352 yards"...

Length of contract really means nothing...it's the guaranteed money that counts.

Very nicely done Vikes! Jennings is a perfect fit for Ponder.

Vikings sign WR Greg Jennings (5 year, $47.5M; $18M guaranteed):

What a stupid move. I take back anything good I said about Pukeman. Hope you enjoy the toliet DR pukejuice and Slobs. Donkbridge should be happy too.

What? We signed Jennings? HOW? I was told he didnt want to come here...

I dont see how this isnt a good move. Even if it fails miserably the FO is showing the fans its serious about winning. He doesnt improve the offense in a couple years and isnt producing- cut him! Now Ponder has ZERO excuses either. He stinks up the joint this year, cut him too! I LOVE IT! I think all you Nay-sayers will enjoy watching a PROFESSIONAL wr catching passes rather then the turds covered in burnt hair we were trotting out there the last two years.

I finally can say, "bravo spielman"

NOW- LB, WR, CB, DLine in the draft and i will actually be looking forward to seeing what next season has to bring

IF spielman can do AT least as good of job as last year in the draft to add 3 or 4 more starters this team should be very interesting next year.

How can anybody be upset about the move? We got exactly what we needed, a #1WR, veteran, smart player, hands, everything. This is a great signing. He's going to take attention off the run. Do you haters really think that last year opposing D coordinators sat in the pre week meeting talking about stopping Jenkins, Arom, Simpson? Do you think they thought about how they're going to cover those guys? Seriously.

Great move by the Vikes. Looks to me like they gave him a long term deal that they can get out of. 18 mil guaranteed. He produces or he is gone. He is only 29 CJH...not a grey hair on his head! Haven't you seen the old spice commercials! If it works out as good as the last couple over the hill packers we have signed we are in good shape (sharper, favre).

Dump Harvin, get some high draft picks for him, and now get Jennings.

The moves are win, win, win.

We will see how things play out but so far it is looking good.

Well hopefully now the pack can release a few more players so they can give Aaron and Clay the 25 and 15 million they want.

Good deal. They knew they had to get this done and they pulled it off. Jered deserves a bonus cause we all know it was him that did the sweet talking. However lets not forget we just lost one of the best slot receivers in the game. They need to add another one in the draft.

You can't blame these guys for wanting to cross the border into a modern society that isn't shadowed by incest and beer farts.....

What they really need right now is to sign Alexander or Heyward-Bey on the outside and let them blow the top off the defense. That'll open up Jennings, Rudolph and Wright to work the middle.

AP would like that too...

How much do we have left to spend? Looks like Jennings takes up roughly just over 9 mil in cap space, correct??? Spielman obvioiusly thinks Chong Simpson can blow the top off the defense, which is ludicrous, but i dont think we're gonna sign anyone else through FA unless its a LB....

I think Alexander has some sort of tender on him... but i believe its only a 5th or 6th rd. Id rather have him then heyward bust.

Sad to see Jennings leave the pack but for that kind of money you guys can have him, i think Cobb fit in pretty dang good last year and hes only going to get better.

Heyward-Bey? Come on, I really hope you weren't serious. That guy is pure arse. Alexander? That guys weaker than circus lemonade. Zep, you had decent insight earlier but have been very sketchy as of late.

Alexander is 6'5" and 225...sounds pretty weak to me. Absolute beast last year for the Chargers.

Heyward-Bey doesn't need to be good...although he's not as bad as you may think. He just needs to keep safeties off the LOS...which his 4.3 speed would definately do.

Zep- Alexander was a stud last year. If anyone is injury prone he could be it though. Hasnt he got 2 fake knee's? What would we have left to sign him? You put him next to Jennings and the vikes could wait until the 3rd or 4th rd to take a wr and go all defense in the first and second

Alexander is a hitch route at Soldier Field away from another knee injury and on IR. Not worth it.

He's had cartlidge problems with his knees that he's had cleaned up quite a bit. He was finally healthy about the mid point last year. He has no tender on him and it would cost the Vikes maybe 2-4M tops to bring the guy in.

Spielman likes to take chances with guys like this and I can't think of a better player to bring in right now to take a chance on.

IMO, the potential reward on this guy far out-weighs the risk(price)....

Those injuries just don't go away. Remember Terrell Davis? Not worth the risk, that meniscus doesn't re-grow buddy. He's circus lemonade. Plus you know I'm on that Patterson pick hard core. Way better option.

The Vikings will be drafting MLB and DT in the 1st now that Jennings is signed...your Patterson dream just left the building when Jennings entered it.

      Thanks for the update Muskies. Making preparations to head north in 3 weeks. We are so looking forward to cooler weather and the song of the loon. Love those pictures, keep them coming. Cheers and good fishing !! 
    • rayguy
      Was up this past week and fishing was really slow.  Trolled deep from Big Island to Foleys and back with one Northern the results.  Really was not a whole lot suspended in the 50+ water. There is no way to fish middle Whitefish on the weekend.  Every pontoon in the world now ties up around the sand dune island and the boat traffic is unreal.  Looks like Minnatonka ,  not a good thing. Did get a few small walleyes on leeches early morning , nothing to brag about.  Keep a eye out ,   lots of crazies out there.  Think the Sheriff needs to hit the lake for a few days to settle the Windsor crowd down a little.

      Anyone use the access at Trout Lake on the Whitefish Chain?  If so have you had issues with turning around in the parking lot due to the inspector parking in the no parking zone that is marked off with yellow lines?  I get into arguments every time I am at that access because the inspector feels they have the right to park in an area that is not to be parked in.  It is becoming annoyingly fun for me to get on them and educate them on where to not park!  This has to be one of the worst accesses in the state when it comes to traffic, space, and inspectors.  Many times they have an inspector there that will give you a 15 minute lecture on invasives even though you have heard his speech before!!!  Power trip and then some!!!!  I respect most inspectors I come into contact with, but WOW are some just go a little overboard on their inspection.  I have to laugh my ass off when the inspector runs us over about water in our livewell (talking about drops of water around the drain ring) saying we could get fined $800 if we leave the access like that, yet what do the inspectors say to the wake boat that pumped in 1000 gallons of water into it and most certainly cannot dispel all the water and an inspector cannot see!!  Not sure what it is about this particular access but I have had the worst experiences there and do not have similar experiences elsewhere, so I just had to ask if other see this too.

      When was the last time you heard anyone rant and rave about Eurasian Water Milfoil? Introduced to MN in 1987 and through the 90’s, we complained, complained, blamed the DNR, cried that this invasive weed was going to kill off many fish because the invasive plant overtook native vegetation. DNR, lake associations and others monitored lake assesses for years to prevent transfer to no avail. Were creatures of habit and don’t like change. And NO Eurasians Water Milfoil did not kill off all the fish, as lots of fish still are caught along the much easier defined weed lines. Of the 388 DNR reported infested lakes only 20 new lakes were added in the last year and ½ and no longer seen to be an issue. Now we have a Zebra Mussel invasion, introduced to MN in 1995 with the same, rant & rave as was with the EW Milfoil, fostered by the DNR and news media with all the negative effects. They will eat all the Zooplankton fish food, large attachments to solid objects, sharp shells on bottom cutting swimmers feet etc. What we hear little about Zebras each adult filters 1 quart of water daily eating algae, a single cell plant Phytoplankton, including the toxic Blue-Green algae which for years been known to kill fish, dogs and humans. A female can produce a million eggs annually so the spread in infested lakes is rapid. Within a couple years the green, brown lakes are clear promoting vegetation growth to deeper water providing more cover for smaller fish. It ticks us fishing people off because our fishing techniques used for the last 50 years no longer work as fish feeding habits change. For us avid fishing people we will learn the new fish feeding habits on infested lakes rather quickly while occasional fishers may never learn new techniques which will increase fish population. While Zebras filter vast amount of algae they secrete a highly nutrient feces on the lake bottom providing a smorgasbord for bottom feeders including many of the minnows and other bait we use. After 4 to 5 years a large number of zebra die as their algae food supply is depleted. Hang in there, 465 bodies of MN waters already infected with Zebras with70 in 2019/2020. Infestation will continue as most boat access will not be monitored and the vast majority of boaters could care less about prevention. Another infestation will most likely happen and we will no longer focus on Zebras. Just a thought. The first excel file is the DNR link to all infestations.

      I’ve been actually catching more walleyes out there than I can ever recall. I wonder if maybe the dredging might have something to do with it   I just might slip in a few trolling rods with crawler harnesses in my ride locker next time and if the lake trout aren’t biting I may just sort of slip right into the Wisconsin entry and might just happen to drop some crawler harnesses

      BirchPtMike, The correct response to jtschwinn97 would have been "yes, totally fished out. spread the word." 😄JK I love the honest supportive feedback this group can be counted on for. Good luck and safe boating from Breezy Point in Frazer Bay.
