You show your lack of knowledge by suggesting the Vikings need to upgrade at Safety next to Harrison Smith. Not only do they not need to upgrade at safety with Sendejo having another good season and emerging as an extremely capable counterpart to Smith in Mike Zimmer's defense, but you completely overlook the Vikings biggest need. And that has been evident from day 1! Offensive tackle. Not only will they take an offensive tackle with their first pick, they might try to trade up into the first round (if possible to get the OT they want. In fact, their need is so dire up front at tackle, it's possible they could take multiple OTs with their first few picks.
Hey Walt, love the site, but noticed you never did a disaster rating for Reshad Jones injury. Was wondering your opinion of that. Also, I'm sure you'll hear of this soon, but Arian Foster also just retired.
The Vikings waived Randy Moss. Who's the favorite to land him by Tuesday, 4 Eastern? Here's my short list:
New England Patriots
This is obvious. I don't think the Patriots will put in a claim for Moss because they're last on the list. If no one claims Moss, they can just sign him without paying him the $3.38 million he's owed for the rest of the year.
Mayhem has broken loose in Washington, where Mike Shanahan thinks Rex Grossman has a better chance of leading his team to victory than Donovan McNabb. McNabb needs a downfield threat to go along with Santana Moss, and Daniel Snyder loves bringing in aging former Pro Bowlers.
This Chicago front office will be fired if the team doesn't make the playoffs. They could panic and take a shot on Moss.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City needs a wideout across from Dwayne Bowe. Both Scott Pioli and Matt Cassel are familiar with Moss.
Miami Dolphins and New York Jets
Neither Miami nor New York needs a receiver, but both teams might be willing to spend $3.38 million to keep arch rival New England from re-claiming Moss. Even if Moss doesn't play a single down for them, the move could be worth it if it keeps the Patriots from advancing deep into the playoffs.
