VIKES DUMP DWIGHT

The Minnesota Vikings have released safety Dwight Smith, according to Kevin Seifert of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

"We were just going in a different direction," coach Brad Childress said. "I don't want to cast any aspersions."

Smith was signed by the Vikings prior to the 2006 season. An arrest for doing the lambada in a public stairwell got him benched for the season-opener against the Redskins. No such penalty was imposed against Smith after he was arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession during the 2007 regular season.

Seifert also says that Smith had "occasional disagreements" with the coaching staff.

The Vikings will need to replace Smith through the draft or free agency. Given that the Vikings use the Tampa 2 system, safety position is more important than it would be in other systems.

Possible candidates include Gibril Wilson of the Giants and Ken Hamlin of the Cowboys.

Lol and I just posted this in the off season moves thread too. I'm glad we got rid of Smith.

Hopefully that great offseason will continue with the Ken Hamlin being signed by the Vikings.
