  1. 2020 Draft Talk

    Yet... growth mindset 😂
  2. 2020 Draft Talk

    Give me all of the Tristan Wirfs... good size, great mover, and explosive lower body power (as evidenced by the combine record vertical and broad jumps for an OL).
  3. Well with that detailed of a post, I now feel as if I don’t have to watch anything
  4. I'm thinking someone might throw some dough at Weatherly.
  5. Either Weatherly or Idneigbo and a draft pick.
  6. Yup the new CBA that went into action after the deals were signed was meant to ferret out back-diving deals like Parise and Suter's as a means of cap circumvention. In the NHL the cap hits for players are a flat average, but teams, starting with Ilya Kovalchuk and the Devils, would have the deals "back-dive" in order to lower the cap hit over a long term contract. In real money, Parise will have made $80M of his $98M contract over the first 8 years of the deal The final five years pay him the final $18M with the last two years of the deal paying him $1M per year. Sucks to be penalized for a "legal" contract that exploited a loophole in the previous CBA, but it's where we are.
  7. Not as far as I understand it. The cap this year is going to be between 196.8M and 201.2M this year from the latest report. the Vikings have around 199.6M in cap liabilities currently for this year.
  8. NFL Snooze News: Volume Four, Por Favor

    JJ Watt has already taken to twitter and said that he disapproves of the CBA. The owners signing it this early is a PR stunt to shine the players in a poor light if there's a work stoppage before this deal can get done. A tactic that likely works on the casual fan, but not anyone who pays any attention to these things.
  9. They don't have $16M with Griffen opting out. They have just under $1.4M

    Like the addition of the the figure 8 drill around the hoops. Going to get a good look at ability to bend and ankle mobility.

    Sounds as if the Lions are releasing Snacks Harrison. If the Vikings move on from Linval (for whatever reason), he'd be someone that I would look at as a potential two-down replacement player for our current big man. Got cut before he could earn an $8.5M base salary, so he might not even be affordable.
  12. Why Rebuild Now

    He was a Left Tackle at Pittsburgh the year we drafted him; it's not as if he's never played there.
  13. Hahaha. Thanks, VD - It's for the Vikings, tangentially. I'll be a traveling coach for their Youth Football Development Camps this Summer around Greater Minnesota, the Dakotas, Iowa, and a trip up to Winnipeg. I've got the Vixen playing at TCO this summer as well, so I'm just trying to stick my ugly mug in front of as many people in the organization as possible in the hopes that someday, down the road, I might potentially be a part of the front office... getting them all coffee or something.

    Trading Diggs includes a $9M cap hit for this year, so would technically save us $5.5M - For a team that's as hard up against it as we are, my not wanting to give Kirk an extension to help our cap situation, and a first round pick on top of it. I'd have to consider it. On the flip side, I don't want to lose the caliber of player that Diggs is.
