    Kampman, Witherspoon, Thornton, Viniateri, Green. I know, we can't sign all five, but those are the ones I'd select from.

    I would look for TT to sign either Plummer or Allen at CB, they will come pretty cheap because they haven't been playing up to their potential, but they have a lot of talent.

    we dont need OTs or DTs

    i like the CB\Safety ideas

    hopefully we wont need a QB, but we should get a safety valve RB pick


    i will be upset with TT if we dont get a good safety and CB.

    I've also read that Koren Robinson likely will not strike a deal with the Vikes. TT who drafted him is said to be interested.

    -we're fools if we bring back ahman green or najeh davenport--Maurice Morris would be a terrific move, him and Gado would make a solid RB tandem. Both young yet, whereas Davenport and Green simply can't stay healthy.

    -We need some interior d-line help, in particular experience...I like Gerard Warren who was cut by the Broncos, I like Ryan Pickett from the Rams--if we don't get Jackson back, we'll need two, I say take a long look at Larry Triplett who started for Indy this year, solid vs. the run. Colin Cole is solid, but we need some more meat in the center of our d-line if we want to be successful

    -Cornerback...Ricky Manning from Carolina...Andre Dyson was just cut by Seattle, Will Allen from the Giants--we can get a solid #2 and get Carroll moved to nickelback where he is better suited

    -Chris Hope would make my day as well

    I must agree with you regarding green and davenport, but I don't really see TT not signing green, if he could get him for a reasonable price. Personally I don't want green.

    I think green can be good if hes being moved in and out with gado and maybe calhoun he does have asthma so i think maybe he could be a good third down back

    asthma isn't a problem if you are on the right medication.

    The thing sticking in my mind is that Green's injury is the same injury Santana Dotson had...he basically fell off of a cliff when he came back to play. I still think Maurice Morris from Seattle is worth a shot, and I'll continue to push him...

    If the Vikes and Robinson can't strike a deal, what makes you think the Packers can? Minny has as much cap money as we do, and not as many holes to fill.

    I agree, and Robinson has suspect hands, not to mention he hasn't been the all-in-one, today's magical wonder he was projected to be on draft day. Besides, he is in a race for bigger money and hasn't proven he is worth it.
