Offseason Plan...first post so be gentle

Hi guys,

I have had a lot of thoughts going through my mind the past couple of days at work on what the Vikings should do in free agency and the draft. This is my first post and I am by no means an expert but I figured I would post what my thoughts were and see what you all would think. The formatting will probably not be the best either as I have never done this before so bear with me. Alright so here goes...


Harvin traded for 3rd round pick (potential suitors open up by taking a 3rd round pick for him is my guess and honestly I would be happy to get a 3rd for him)

Jared Allen traded for a 3rd round pick (I know most people will be highly against this part right here but this makes sense in my head, seeing as we have Griffen and Robison and JA is due quite a bit of money this year)

I would also restructure both John Carlson and Kevin Williams contracts.



OT Phil Loadholt

FB Jerome Felton

CB AJ Jefferson

S Jamarca Sanford

OL Joe Berger

LB Erin Henderson

WR Jerome Simpson

OG Geoff Schwartz

LB Jasper Brinkley

LB Marvin Mitchell


WR Devin Aromashodu

S Andrew Sandejo

CB Marcus Sherels

OT Troy Kropog



WR Danario Alexander

LB Brad Jones

S Louis Delmas

QB Tyler Thigpen

DT Desmond Bryant

I would then release the follwing players

DT Letroy Guion

WR Stephen Burton (sign to practice squad if waivers are cleared)

CB Brandon Burton

QB Mcleod Bethel-Thompson (sign to practice squad if waivers are cleared)


1st LB Alec Ogeltree, Georgia

2nd WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech

3rd DE Cornelius Washington, Georgia

3rd WR Aaron Dobson, Marshall

3rd DT Brandon Williams, MSSU

4th Trade for future draft pick

4th CB Tyrann Mathieu, LSU

5th Trade for future picks

6th OG Omoregie Uzzi, Georgia Tech

7th Trade for future picks

7th Trade for future picks

So going into the first game of the season the final 53 man roster would be...

QB Ponder, Thigpen, Webb

RB Peterson, Gerhart, Asiata

FB Felton

WR Patton, Alexander, Dobson, Wright, Simpson, Childs

TE Rudolph, Carlson, Ellison

RT Loadholt

RG Fusco, Schwartz

C Sullivan, Berger

LG Johnson, Uzzi

RT Kalil

DE Robison, Washington

DT Bryant, Ballard, B. Williams

DT K. Williams, Evans

DE Griffen, Reed

OLB Jones, Henderson

ILB Ogeltree, Brinkley

OLB Greenway, Mitchell, Cole

CB Winfield, Robinson, Cook, Jefferson, Mathieu

S Raymond, Sanford, Smith, Blanton, Delmas

K Walsh

P Kluwe

LS Loeffler

KR/PR Alexander
