    He's a headcase. I'll pass. I think the Vikes have to take the BPA regardless, but we need to aim for offensive and defensive linemen.

      I thought he had injury and attitude problems.

      • No thanks on Andrews. The guy hasn't played in a game since 2008 and has serious back issues along with some pretty serious mental stuff going on. I'd much rather go guard in the middle rounds as opposed to taking a chance on him.

        • Montgomery agrees to deal with Vikings

          Free-agent defensive end Mike Montgomery agreed to a one-year deal with the Vikings on Monday after spending the day visiting with team officials. Montgomery is the second free agent of note to join the Vikings this offseason, joining kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd.

          A sixth-round pick by Green Bay out of Texas A&M in 2005, Montgomery was released by the Packers this month. He had dealt with injuries in 2009 and also was not considered a real fit for the new 3-4 defensive scheme that had been put into place by coordinator Dom Capers.

          Montgomery, who is 6-5, 282 pounds, had his best season in 2008, when he recorded 2.5 sacks and 59 tackles in 14 games. He made the only eight starts of his career that season. The Packers thought enough of Montgomery's contribution that season that they signed him to a two-year contract a year ago.

          Montgomery, 26, has five career sacks and will backup at the end positions. He also could slide inside to provide rushing help on passing downs.

              • Andrews probably won't be in the league in 2010. He keeps saying he wants to play but never actually shows that he wants to play. Waste of talent.

                  Probably just a depth move. Sort of like the signing of Karl Paymah last year. And yes, he also might just be a camp guy.

                    Yep. Gotta get to 53 somehow. If Montgomery gives us similar production to what he did in 2008, fantastic. If he's cut during camp, well, it's not like we invested much in him.

                            • This little bit from the Minn Star:

                              Darius Reynaud could be converted back to a running back for the 2010 season, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

                              He played both running back and receiver while at the University of West Virginia, but the Vikes had been using him exclusively at wideout. With Chester Taylor now gone, however, they look willing to get creative. Stay tuned.

                              • Just wanted to apologize to all of you for not being active lately, I just turned 21 + have been in baseball mode in anticipation for the new stadium.

                                I'll do my best to post as much as possible.

                                As far as Reynaud goes, I don't see the harm in trying it. I've actually seen him play running back, he would spell Slaton before Devine got there. I'd be interested to see if he's purely being groomed for 3rd down or if they actually intend on using him to run the stretch play on 1st and 2nd down as well. I think this preseason is going to be awesome. Everyone has their role pretty much set outside of a few positions so I think the coaches are willing to experiment with lots of different packages.

                                Also, forgive me, but what happened to Tahi? Did he sign any sort of deal with anyone? We are idiotic for not going HARD after Tony Richardson again. He's miles better than Tahi and clearly still has some gas left in the tank.
