OK, maybe not that excited. Somebody named "Karl Paymah" is visiting the Vikings over the weekend. Here's the report from the Pioner Press:
Free-agent cornerback Karl Paymah is expected to visit with the Vikings this weekend.
A third-round pick out of Washington State, Paymah started just five games for the Denver Broncos in four NFL seasons. Paymah struggled when given a chance to replace injured perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey last season, and he was replaced by rookie Josh Bell.
But Paymah is considered a standout special teams player, and he could provide much-needed depth for the Vikings at cornerback.
Paymah is reportedly visiting with the Baltimore Ravens today.
So we got that goin' for us, which is nice. Personally, this is the very first time I've heard Paymah's name, ever. And I'm pretty sure that's the case for most people outside the Greater Denver Area.
Unless the Ravens poach another guy away from us, maybe we can get a solid special teamer to replace Heath Farwell (if/when he leaves) along with a little depth at corner.
We're not exactly lighting the world on fire here, but hey, it's something...and I even incorporated a cheap way to link to one of the best scenes from Caddyshack. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday everyone!
