    MN is looking for LB's right now, not WR's. And oh yeah, a CB or two.

    I also heard they are STILL looking for a QB..... guess 3 aint enough. Call Favre, heard he was interested in making a 3rd comeback.....just make sure that your stadium is wheelchair friendly and the mens bathroom stalls have safety handles installed for his convenience.

    That QB thingy, that's not so easy to clarify unless you happen to be picking in the right spot at the right time.

    Huh? from 1993 - 2003 he played for GB, I'm not sure if he played for Minn, you may want to check on that, it does not sound correct.

    Ok, but did he ever play? lol
    besides, what does it matter, I just like busting raptors chops....... why does everyone feel the need to one up someone when it was clearly joking? There are no bonus points for the 1upers.

    ok, for the pure stats guys, dispute this one:

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/446/gilbert-brown

    He may have been drafted my Minn., but it does NOT state that he played any time for them. I am not digging any deeper than this, but to me it looks like maybe he was drafted then released or traded. So it looks like no real official playing time for Minn. There ya go, that's my poor attempt at a 1 uper

    I haven't seen an article where we signed King. I read in the shout box Elway wouldn't let him go(though if King wanted to leave he could leave)& signed him to the 53 man roster

    Elway signed him out if spite. King will be lucky if he gets 2 TDs this year. On our roster he'd likely be a starter or close to it

    Elway's a horse-faced douche so I wouldn't put it past him. I've always hated the guy. I was hoping we got him because he was pretty good at Georgia.

    So your decision now is do you keep him on your fantasy team?

    Gilbert was drafted in the third round of the 1993 draft by the Vikings. He was released on August 30th by the Vikings due to his weight. The Packers picked him up on August 31. He never played a regular season game for the Vikings. He may have played in pre season for them.
