4 years, 18M with 8M guaranteed. That's big money. Not a fan.

Fills a blocking TE role and a the FB role. I like the signing, and I will like it more once the contract details come out and verify what I think- that a lot of the money in this contract is fake, 4th year money that he will never see.

Spoke with a buddywho's a Viking fan and he says this guy is really good at blocked..."Like really really good" so this makes sense. I hope we keep Will Johnson since cutting him over save 1.05 mil in cap space. Let Johnson be the FB and bring Ellison in as our blocking TE in bunch packages. With Flowers, Pugh, Richburg, Ellison and Johnson in the game we should be pretty successful running the ball to the left. This offense NEEDS a receiving TE badly.

I'm gonna keep telling you guys the same thing until end of April...Hassan Reddick in the first, Gerald Everett in the second.

If it gets the running game going then money well spent IMHO. Does he have any hands? We know how Eli loves throwing to FB's Laughing

The main reason I didn't like the signing was I felt it was a cop out way to address the OL. Then the OL contract numbers started to post. Not a chance we should spend $13M/year on Okung

He's a great teammate and locker room guy. I remember hearing about him crying after he was drafted because he didn't think he was going to be drafted.

Outstanding blocker. Decent hands. Can play special teams too.

He was not expecting to be drafted, and as such was on a river excursion and not watching the draft when the Vikings called him to let him know he was about to be selected; the surprise was such that he cried in joy

I saw her on America's Next Top Model years ago when my mom and sister used to watch it. I had a huge crush on her. She's beautiful.

What will help the running game is if we directly fixed the offensive line instead of finding way to just assist it with other positions.

Our OL is actually pretty good in the run game. Flowers may whiff on nearly every pass rush but he's solid in run game

The Giants line was not pretty good in the run game. The left side was okay when Pugh was healthy, the right side was horrible.

Same thought just worded mine poorly. Regardless, the cowboys OL would suck in run blocking with Jennings taking 5 minutes to hit a hole.
