A busy day at Winter Park
February 29th, 2008 – 11:23 AM by Judd Zulgad
Madieu Williams is on the way to town to sign a contract. Bernard Berrian is en route and will likely be presented with a substantial offer. And then there is former Gophers and St. Paul Johnson standout Thomas Tapeh, who also is set to visit today. We’ve confirmed that Tapeh definitely should be meeting with the Vikings at some point.
Brad Childress is familiar with the fullback having coached him with the Eagles. Tapeh, who is 6-1, 243 pounds, was a fifth-round choice of Philly in 2004. He not only would replace Tony Richardson as the lead blocker for Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor but also would be used on special teams. Tapeh will turn 28 years old on March 28.
Thought i would start a thread about some of the FA's and some of the guys that have been cut, i just saw the Chargers let Neal go (their FB) and all i have to say is if the Packers are not talking to him right now i would be veery disapointed
Well the Pack made a move, just not the one you were thinking about. Traded Corey Williams to Cleveland for their 2nd-rounder, which happens to be their first pick this year due to the trade to Dallas for Brady Quinn last year. He'll probably play DE in their 3-4 scheme.
Brilliant move by Thompson. CW is a good player, but isn't worth the kind of money he got paid (6 years, $38 million with $16.3 in guaranteed money - about double Ryan Pickett's deal and even more than Aaron Kampman's contract). Without the franchise tag, there's no way he stays in Green Bay. Slaps the tag on him, trades him, and now has 3 of the first 60 picks in the draft.
CB, OT, TE. Get some youth behind Harris, Woodson, Clifton and Tauscher and a replacement for Bubba.
