"Vikings will place franchise tag today on LB Chad Greenway. This means that neither WR Sidney Rice nor DE Ray Edwards will be tagged."


This could be very good news. Rice looks up to Fitzgerald and Fitzgerald loves haley. Maybe we bring in sidney rice!

I agree Sidney came back from injury last season and made some huge plays.

I sure hope we go after him. Best free agent WR available. Rice in a Chiefs uniform would be killer!

Anyone think he might want more than Pioli would be willing to pay?

He's going to want WR1 money, and basically he would be a WR2 (I mean listed on the depth chart anyways.)

I think Haley would be in Heaven if we landed him. It would be like what he had in Arizona with Fitz and Boldin.

Holy crap could you imagine having Charles, McCluster, Bowe, Moeaki, and Rice all on the field at the same time?? the possibilities.... Then all we would need would be to Land a Starting RT (Draft or Matt Light in FA) and a Center in the Draft and I would like that. Our O would be much stronger than last year.

yeah I didn't think about that... An offensive drive would look like a scene from one of the Predator movies haha

Then we could hire Danny Glover and Arnold as offensive consultants haha.

I am kind of ambivilent about getting Rice. Guy has had only one really good year in 4 and only one as a starter, catching 83 passes for 1312 yards in 2009. Otherwise he only has 63 other career receptions and only started 6 games (active for 26) before 2009 and of course was injured much of last season.

I'd rather see us go full force after Fitzgerald. Particularly if Rice is going to command #1 type money, because I am not sure he will be worth it.

I've mentioned that on another thread before too about the 1 good year. I don't think we should go for him if he commands #1WR $$, but one thing about his first couple of years, the offense was a run first (similar to how ours is now) It was focused around AP which is why he might have had lower stats. His big year came when they moved the offense to focus around Farve because opposing Defenses were stacking the box on AP.

So he should be used to a run-first mentality, and if we do sign him, I don't think he will put up big numbers in our offense (due to the run-first, throw second mentality), so I could see fan's complaining that he were a bust, when in reality, his purposed would be to serve as a decoy so that teams couldn't stack the box on us, and remain honest because we would have legit WR's on either side of the field.

Heard Tim Hasselbeck talking about how he thought the perfect fit for Rice would be San Diego, I bet he would do good there, but I hope he doesn't land there.

I agree with that completely!

Also, if we can't get Fitzgerald AND if Rice doesn't command #1 money, I wouldn't be against signing him. Though, I am not sure that I would rather spend our #1 on a top WR.

Part of the problem is that - is it just me - of does this team having seemingly a lot of holes for a team that won its division?

Everytime I think WR, I remember that we need help on the O-line, but then when I think about getting that I remember that we really need an NT, but that then makes me remember that we could use a better pass rush and an upgrade at OLB...of course, I then remember that a better offense would help the defense and that has me thinking about a WR...

Thats why I trust in Pioli & Haley, so my thoughts aren't riding a merry go round making me dizzy! lol I have enough trouble staying off a merry go round of thoughts related to 'life', hahaha. ;)

I really just want this team to address the WR position through free agency, whether its sidney rice, steve smith (giants) or steve breaston. I'd like that first pick of ours to be used on a NT or OLB ideally and maybe use our later picks for some WR depth.

Haha I see what you mean, but if you look on the bright side. At least this year our glaring needs can be counted on one hand (WR2, OL, NT, OLB) The past few years I think you would have needed 2 or 3 hands haha!

I would love any of the 3 or a trade for Fitzgerld WR is a big need for this team if they can get one through the free agent market then that means we can do more in the draft. I think that would be the best move for this team.

We would have the most 'dreaded' offense in football. I cam see the t-shirt now. I don't see this happening, but it's not out of the question. I think it likely mean that Bowe wouldn't be resigned. They would have a ton of money tied up at the WR position. I'm sure Haley would love to have a prolific passing attack though based on his past.

It'd be great to have McCluster, Bowe, Fitzgerald, and Rice at WR next season! :thumbup1:

Wow now that's dreaming. We couldn't afford to have all of them under contract.

Heard the Vikes are now trying to ink Rice to a long term extension (they probably tagged greenway because they thought they were closer to a deal with Rice). Which brings me back to thinking that the most realistic scenario is that we sign either Breaston or Doucett from Arizona to come in, and draft a WR in the first couple of rounds like Titus Young, Jon Baldwin, or Torrey Smith.

It's nice dreaming of Fitz and Rice coming here, but it more than likely won't happen. Unless Fitz becomes a FA next year I don't think we can muster up enough for a trade ( We've got to remember this year during the draft, Player's can't be involved in trades for draft picks until the CBA is signed, so with us talking about getting rid of our 1st rounder this year or next for Fitz, it can't happen yet.)
