Hmmm,

Sounds Like Plaxico, Hartwell, and Smoot could be Vikings after all Very Happy

We have to spend a lot of that to get to the league minimum. I really think next year is going to kick a**. We could also afford to grab a guard. That fills a lot of holes, and allows us to draft BPA. I like the idea of picking up a Safety in the draft, Davis, Pool or Shazor should do. Maybe add a young pass rusher as well. Mike Nugent would be nice as well. With that much room, our options are certainly open.

Yuppers,

Just depends on how much of the signing bonus you want to pay up front.

He is stingy but hey the FA just started 2 days ago..... We will most likely sing Plaxico and a corner or LB..... then we have 2 first round picks in the draft.........so the money will get spent

Im not too keen on Plex anymore. IDK y but this Bennet and 2nd roud pick for Boldin sounds so much better. But hey, give me one ill be fine with it.

naaa i'd rather have Burress...... We could use that 2nd round pick for a kicker like Mike Nugent or a saftey or something like that......and Boldin and Burleson are very similar recievers..... Burress on the other hand is a Giant and is a deep threat and very similar to what we had in moss but without the headache and not as good hands..... So I think Burress is the better man for the job

I posted this in another thread debating between A. Boldin, and P. Burress
_____________________________________________________________


The issue between Boldin and Burress is simple, and here is the stat point

Boldin in his BEST year,

101 catches, 13.6 yard avg, 20+ yard catches= 26 (25.7% of catches)

Burress, last year (best year below it)

35 catches, 19.9 yard avg, 20+ yard catches= 17 (48.5% of catches)

78 catches, 17 yard avg, 20+ yard catches= 26 (33% of catches)


Now, lets factor in that Minnesota already has M. Robinson, and N. Burelson = A
+
Daunte Culpepper and his DEEP arm = B


and we come up with a (not really mathmatical) equation

A+B+ A.Boldin= Good

A+B+ P.Burress= Great


Neither is a LOSING situation, but its quite obvious with the recievers that Minnesota has already, and the big aspect that Moss brought to the table that none of the other Viking WR's have, is the DEEP ball catching skills.

Burress will bring that, even if he isnt a STELLAR #1.

With Daunte, he'll look like a #1.

For that matter, even with Ben he'd have looked like a #1 (given enough time to show it)

Good recievers make good QBs look great, and the same applies vice versa.

Plax to MN= Win
_____________________________________________________________

Boldin isnt a DEEP reciever, Plax is... Boldin would just be another Burleson (which certainly isnt bad) but Culpepper has BIG arm, and there is no reason not to get a tool for him to put that big arm to use.

Plax will stretch the field, Boldin will not.

Plax also will help more in the run game with his 6'5 ~230 lbs
