Rumor Time

This sounds interesting. I'll see if I can dig up more! Ravens draft 13th if there is any swapping picks.

Jamal Lewis: Future with Ravens Uncertain

RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com

Wednesday, February 8, 2006

Update: The Ravens have not yet decided whether they'll use the franchise tag on Lewis, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Recommendation: The Ravens could instead just let Lewis become an unrestricted free agent. Even if they do use the tag on him, it's possible he could get traded. One rumor has involved him going to Minnesota in a package that would net Daunte Culpepper.

They better throw in the other Lewis too if they expect us to send DC their way!

We really don't want to break up that Lewis felony crime ring in Baltimore...they can keep them both and their egomaniac for a coach too!

ESPN 'Insider' website had this to say: "K.Robinson eyeing homecoming" I am not a paying member of this site but it was listed in their rumor central section. So who knows maybe he's headed back to Seattle. Bet he wishes he could have stayed there in the first place! I'll try to find out more info, and maybe I will become a member.

Well I joined Insider so here's the real rumor on K Robinson

Robinson eyeing homecoming

<Feb. 8> After rehabilitating his career with the Vikings last season, Robinson is now scheduled to become a free agent in March and would be interested in returning close to home and joining the Carolina Panthers, who are likely to attempt to bolster their receiving corps, the Charolotte Observer reports.

After a difficult tenure in Seattle, where the receiver was dogged by off-the-field problems, Robinson earned a trip to the Pro Bowl as a return man in his first season in Minnesota. With John Fox and the Panthers coaching staff in charge of the NFC squad, Carolina has a unique chance to get an in-depth look at Robinson this week.

"I'm going to use this week to impress them and show them the type of person I am now," Robinson said.

If memory serves me right, I believe Robinson went to college at North Carolina State. That must be what they meant when they said homecoming.

Here is a copy and paste job from ESPN:

He is scheduled to be a free agent, but the Vikings, as a part of his contract, retain a right of first refusal. That means if another team signs Robinson to a deal, Minnesota can keep him by matching it. Robinson's preference is to return to the Minnesota franchise that afforded him a second chance, even though Tice has departed and the staff headed by Brad Childress is now in place.

No matter what, Robinson said, he is in a better place in life and vocation, and he is confident things will work out.

FWIW, CNN/SI.com reported today that the Vikings currently consider Lawrence Maroney their preferred first-round pick, although they would also consider drafting LB Chad Greenway from Iowa in the first round, if he is still available when the Vikings pick.

Just wondering everybodies thoughts are. Will the Vikes will try to get this free agent: Julian Peterson LB, 6-3, 235 5yrs exp.

ESPN is ranking him the 3rd best player out there. His score is 90 out of 100. Only Shaun Alexander(93) and Edgerrin James (90) are ahead of him.

I can't wait till March 3rd! grin.gif

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
