The “Paymah Rent” tour finally has ended.
According to Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, free-agent cornerback Karl Paymah has agreed to terms with the Vikings.
Paymah, who previously played for the Broncos, visited multiple teams before finally arriving in Minnesota.
So either he was tired of traveling, or the Vikings offered him more than any other team.
Paymah signed a one-year deal, and he plans to test the market again in 2010. He thinks that, with the coaching of defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and secondary coach Joe Woods, his career will take off.
“I got the talent,” Paymah said, “but not the guidance.”
But we hope that he’s getting good guidance from his agent. Before Karl presumes that he’ll launch another “Paymah Rent” tour in 2010, he needs to keep one important thing in mind: Absent a new CBA (or a clause in his contract promising that the team won’t try to hold him in place), Paymah will be only a restricted free agent next year, because he won’t have the requisite six years of service.
