    Player Sydney Rice: Potential UFA and WR Upgrade

    The Vikings just designated LB Chad Greenway as their franchise player which means two things. One, we can no longer look at him as a possible upgrade to our ILB's. Two, the Vikings can no longer place the franchise tag on Sydney Rice. Now the Vikes can place the transition tag on him, but there are multiple reports (just as there were reports they would franchise Greenway)that they won't.

    Depending on how the new CBA is worked out Syndey Rice could definitely become a UFA. People on here have hinted for us to sign Santana Moss but I would much rather us sign Sydney Rice. Most people here in Minneapolis feel Rice missing the first half of the season was the reason their offense was so terrible because without him in their line up defenses were able to stack the box to stop the run and not worry about doubling any of their outside WR's.

    If we were able to sign Rice our 3-wide receiving corps would be Marshall, Rice, and Bess. There is no way you could stack the box to stop the run as we hopefully would kill teams in the passing game.

    I can honestly say that if he makes free agency he would be my #1 FA wish. We could then target RB, TE and O-linemen this draft if one of the big name QB's doesn't drop as I don't see us trading up for a QB unless one is still around at selection #9 when Dallas picks. In reality I actually see us trading down to get back our 2nd which we traded for Marshall.

    Thoughts?
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    I would love to add Sidney Rice but right now we need to focus on other needs.

    That is an awful lot of money when you consider what Marshall is getting. Isn't Rice like the top WR FA now that Jackson got tagged?

    This would be as likely as signing Asamugha.

    He would be a great compliment to Marshal and Bess. He has the speed to keep the defense on its toes and would definately take the double team off of Marshal which has a domino affect for Bess because he is the one that things would really open up for. Worry a little about his hip but if healthy he would be a good pick up.
