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.

Who's our #2? Simpson? Not a chance. Wright is a slot guy. We need a #2 and you know it, that's why you're putting out the wack pickups of Heyward-Bey and Alexander.

Why would we sign a #2 WR in the 1st round?

We could go CB too.

-Our starting MLB just signed with the Cardinals...which is a good thing.

-This will be KWills last year...another good thing.

-We just lost Winfield...not so good of a thing, IMO.

That's why...

They had to bring Allen to dinner, to let Jennings know that no matter how bad things get, the checks never bounced!

It's extremely rare that a WR will be a #1 their first year. It hardly ever happens. Honestly the only one I can think of that has done that is the Lions and they finally got one worth a dump. Zep, come on, start making some sence again.

$18 million guar.

That is like having the best houseboat on rainy lake but no motor to go anywhere. Its an absolute pipe dream to imagine Flounder can get Jennings the ball. He hasnt been able to make a full season in quite a few years. I think he has a great work ethic and attitude, but I just dont see how we get him the ball and how he stays healthy. Terrible move by the Queens.

Dr. Juice...think about it. Ponder is the QB. We need to invest in DEFENSE hard. We are not going to beat anybody by out-scoring them.

Keep the game close and PRAY at the end.....Ponder hasn't looked at the 2nd or 3rd option since he's been here...where do you think the ball is going to go now that Percy is gone?

Alright buck, I usually like hearing your insight but on this you are wrong. With this contract, he has to earn darn near all his money. If he isn't worth a darn, then the vikings cut him after 3 years at a cost of 18 million total, which equates to 6 million a year, which everyone would be happy with. People often look at the total money offered but never look at the guaranteed money, which is what really matters. With this low of a percentage of the total possible money offered as a guarantee, this is a great move.

      That is a fair opinion. My opinion is that as long as the safe harvest level is not exceeded, I really don't care if it takes them 1 day, 6 months, or a whole year, or if they are using hook and line, nets, or dynamite. That is the tribes choice to make.   Some people go home to a super model every night; I do not. Some people have billions of dollars; I do not. Some people can net walleye on Red Lake; I can not. Life is not and never will be fair.

      Thanks Chill, I really enjoy reading your posts.  On a quick update for me, I went out for the first time of the year on Nov. 23rd on a small lake by DL.  Had around 5" of ice and had to drill about 40 holes before we found the crappies and gills.  They were not super aggressive, but we were able to land one limit of keeper size crappies and also some nice gills.  Went out for the second time on Dec. 7th by Lake Park.  With the warm weather, still only found about 5" of good ice and 3" of slush on time.  Fishing was much slower and only caught a few perch.  Thank goodness for the Muck Arctic Armor boots for keeping the feed dry and warm in that slush!!

      Seriously???   You dont even know that the Red Lakes are not, and never were, a part of the 1837 treaty or part of the Ceded territory, yet you spout off here as if its fact? Take that carp back to the Mille Lacs forum where it belongs.    If you want a little FACT finding mission, take a look for the maps of the 1837 and 1854 ceded territories.  Not even close to Red Lakes. I'll save ya the difficult google search, heres the maps for both https://data.glifwc.org/ceded/ So stop biatching about a system that is working on the Red Lakes.  Its been the best walleye lake in MN basically since it reopened in 2006.  And yes, I have fished it every year since then, how about you????   Tried to see if I could find even one fishing report from you on this forum........ crickets.  
    • Rick
      We all have an interest in maintaining the lake. I thank god we have this gem to fish and am grateful it's producing again. I'm grateful to all those who worked on the recovery for all of us to enjoy and/or gain economic benefit from.   If people like you came in to the place you made your livelihood (subsistence) and told you how to produce your goods or services, how well would you listen?   A fish meal is a fish meal no matter how it was gathered.   Let's find a positive way to co-exist with each other. The bitterness is not becoming nor is it productive.
    • gimruis
      I think they should just stop using nets.  If they want fish, they should have to use fish and line like everyone else.  Just my personal opinion.
    • gimruis
      Well played
    • rumeye
      Start eating more Smallmouth they are not bad had them in Canada once put side by side with walleye couldn't hardly tell the difference. I know the bass guys are probably going to rip me for saying that but what the heck why not eat em.😀
    • bowhuntingboy1
      I dont know.  In my experience at mille lacs, which was a few years back, i saw no shortage of tiny perch and crayfish and I know there is also tulibee in there
    • walros
      I like to think that there are too many predator fish (walleye, northern, musky and small mouth bass) for the available forage base to sustain. You can't have everything at once yet here the DNR is trying to make the lake into everyone's dream lake. One of the predator fish has been stocked (Musky) and one protected (small mouth bass)  allowing the natural balance to tilt away from walleyes. This happened because of intense political lobbying efforts of the groups that support these types of fishing activities.

      Guys, please, recommend me a sleeping bag for two that would be warm and thick anought to lie even on snow. I am going to purchase TETON Mammoth from this list https://outdoorsy.org/best-double-sleeping-bag, but if you have something that you can rely on, please, let me know. Do not want to risk it with purchasing something unknown
