It made their old-slow secondary look a little bit faster for 2 games a year

It means GB has 1 less pain in the a** to cover! Heck of a WR. Minnesota has done a hell of a job and is getting better, but losing Harvin is tough,so obviously Minn. will have to draft a WR and hope hes a good one!

This Guy I think for sure could replace Harvin, Bailey the best wide-out to ever play for WVU & for sure the best hands I seen in a long time.I will post his highlights below.

West Virginia WR Stedman Bailey measured in at 5'10 and 1/4 inches and 193 pounds & 10 inch hands at the NFL Combine.
Bailey isn't going to wow in testing, but he consistently served as Geno Smith's safety net and thrived when targeted in the red zone. He reminds us a lot of Greg Jennings with his technical skill and ability to create that sliver of separation at the catch point. I hope the vikes go after him & not the packers. The Packers should be looking for a replacement for jennings. & with Bailey being a mid round draft pick it could happen.

Darn it the Vikings are walking away from the Greg Jennings negotiations, and it could be because the price has gotten too high:

VN where do you get that info buddy? It a blow if we dont, GB may be driving up the price without even wanting him. I can see us relying on a stream of rookies this year if nothings done soon....who knows they may impress as theres a few shining this year. Ponder must zero his passing game though.

Its info that I was reading on the web. The packers made jennings a offer a few months ago of 10 million & he didnt take it. so the Vikes would have to top that offer if they did want jennings.

I heard both 9 and 10 million. Last I heard it is at 9mil right now with the Packers. That is suprising, ussually the Pack don't offer that much to older players, they are stingy. I guess they feel he can produce over the next several years then.

I guess I think jennings still has good speed & there isnt anything wrong with hands but the thing that worries me is his injuries that kept him from playing last season. How bad was that hit to his head & how bad was the injury to his arm Was he really hurt or was it he wasnt to happy that he wasn't Aaron's number one target anymore?

I think Jennings was mad he wasn't Aaron's guy anymore & this year was his contract year. Jennings wanted a big money contract this year & not being the number one guy the Packers wasn't going to give it.

I am not sure about Jennings current injuries, I have not heard of any. 2 yrs ago it was his knee, last year it was his "core". He missed quite a few games over the last years and I am sure that is where he and teams disagree about the his contract value. He played in the playoffs and looked pretty good so I assume his current health is not an issue. I would think he is 100% or the Packers would not offer him anything yet. They are quite strict about passing physicals before signing.

I far as not being Arronís #1, I think you are ASSUMING things again and I canít speak on that, he would have to say something about it. He has never said anything public or complained about it too my knowledge. IMO he will be the Packers #1 WR, but in the Packers offense that doesnít mean anything, every WR lines up in different positions and they move WRs around to find the best matchup, except James Jones plays mostly on the outside. I would assume Nelson plays most outside too with Jennings and Cobb working more in the slot. Jennings knows how the offense works and if you play for the Packers you have to be unselfish about getting targets. That is the way it goes, Jennings knows that and I have never heard him upset about it, frustrated at times I am sure.

IMO is Jennings has been nothing short of a model player and great teammate for the Packers. Great leader too.

Jennings didnt deny he told his sister anyting. he said he was disappointed her thoughts puthim in a awkward situation. IT also says It certainly isnít outside the realm of possibility that Jennings, upset with his contract status and disappointed that the team heís played for since 2006 has shown no interest in striking a long-term deal( & has voiced his frustration to family members.)

Thanks Eric. I just did my job. No combat medals because I was a Korean linguist and there just wasn't a whole lot of need for us in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Unlike ezg357/viking nation I don't lie about my service an I would NEVER lie about having won the medal of honor. Don't respond to the lying scumbag and eventually he'll go away.

If you have a topix profile log in and send me a message. All the non-trolls have moved to a new site to talk Vikings and the NFC North.

Its so funny how someone thinks they can tell others who to talk to lol Wow to much. I see why so many members left this site. I think what Stubby is really mad about is I showed everyone just how much he & Childress really knows. Stubby is a non stats man & opens his mouth like its a fact But has no facts about what he is saying & Childress can't even put together a Mock draft right. He doesn't pick the player in his projected round I mean it like he is picking fantasy football. Why dont you guys stay in your private site & make your little email invitation to them that want to join you. this site is better off without you. Did any of you get your invite If not maybe your not as tight as you thought.
