John Carlson to Visit on Wednesday

As Branden reported earlier, the Vikings have interest in TE John Carlson formally of the Seattle Seahawks. The interest has turned into a visit scheduled for Wednesday per Adam Caplan of the SidelineView.com.

Looks like we could be looking for another big target to pair with Kyle Rudolph in Musgraves 2 TE sets since Visante Shiancoe doesn’t look likely to return.

    Ok, well lets get it done if it is what we need. Would rather see us setting up visit with Carl Nicks. Maybe a wide receiver or corner, oh wait all the good ones are gone!

    Just now I’m feeling a bit queasy about Vike prospects. Don’t know if I can get comfortable with Spielman driving the bus while chatting away with all the passengers in front row.

    Would feel better if we could sign TE Carlson. Probably not as good all around as Shiancoe but fine replacement.

    Oshiomogho Atogwe was reported at ESPN (Pelissaro) as 32 years old.
    Let’s get the facts straight before you call someone washed up. He’d be a lot cheaper than LaRon Landry.

    What do you think – least a one year rental – of Santana Moss? Musgrave should know this guy as a Redskin.

    Finally a tackling linebacker – DeMorrio Williams, David Hawthorne or Manny Lawson are just a few names.

    Much better.

    Warwas is reporting John Carlson has signed for five years.

    I believe he will be a good signing ~ The Vikings would then have 2 good receiving TE for a 2 TE set ~ It shouldn’t be hard for him to replace Shank who had one good season sense being drafted by the Giants ~

    More signs are coming IMHO ~ The Vikings are just taking their time even if it cost fan some sleep worrying about who the Vikings have in mind ~
