    Which RB do you expect the Vikes to sign?

    A few Viking buddies seem to think it will be Westbrook or LT...i really have no clue if either are likely. Heck, i would love to see Albert Young get a shot as a #2 back, as unlikely as it might be.

    Personally, I could see LT end up in GB to spell Grant.

    If I was an NFL team, I would go with a younger guy. How many NFL RB over 30 made a "comeback" after being released?

    True. I expect teams to take a chance on the likes of LT, Westbrook, and T Jones...at least as a #2. All three of those guys have some tread left, especially if they are not getting 15+ carries a game.

    Who would you take a shot with of those three? Here is how my list would go:

    1) T Jones
    2) LT
    3) Westbrook

    Jones is the one guy that could probably still pound it on a regular basis so he would be my #1. I would not touch Westbrook because of the concussions, just would not be worth the risk IMO. So LT would be my #2. I would look for him to be a solid 3rd down back and get 5-8 carries a game. I think he would be great behind the likes of Grant or Adrian Peterson.

    As a curious Packers fan... have you heard that GB is interested in LT or is that just a theory of your own?

    I have seen some internet rumors, however, nothing solid by any means. Just things like this

    I believe Sproles now has a 1st and 3rd round tender attached, so it is doubtful he is going anywhere now.

    Why would Vikes go after a free agent when they didn't resign Taylor? Shouldn't they just pick up a 3rd round back?

    What the heck. Give the ball to a hungry younger Albert Young. Just the Hawkeye in me wants this.
