    Jimmy is retired, brother.

    I honestly don’t feel like losing any of those players will handicap the team . The Vikings could sign cheaper and just as effective role players in the draft and undrafted free agency.

  3. Jay says:

    The top priority on this list would be Erin Henderson, but I wouldn’t get in a bidding war for him.

    Given the number of needs on this team, they have to take a close look at retaining Abdullah. Perhaps a one-year deal that’s heavy on performance incentives. As it stands right now, the don’t have a starting safety, and they have higher priorities to address early in the draft.

    If Guion and Ty. Johnson leave in free agency, the Vikings could get compensatory picks for them in 2013, so I’m sure they are considering that as well. In contrast, Erin Henderson and Abdullah were undrafted FAs, so losing them would not result in compensatory picks.

  4. Lost Viking says:

    Aromashodu, Guion, Abdullah, Erin Henderson and Rosenfels

    Worth considering Shiancoe, EJ Henderson, Tyrell Johnson and Fred Evans

  5. Helter says:

    you look to upgrade, but if there is nothing there you try to resign what you have. Shiancoe if not too much would be my priority of this list. I don’t think we will find anyone else as good, that is ready to play.

    QB Sage Rosenfels – KEEP
    WR Devin Aromashodu – RESIGN
    WR Greg Camarillo – CUT
    TE Jimmy Kleinsasser – ALREADY RETIRED
    TE Visanthe Shiancoe – RESIGN
    OL Scott Kooistra – KEEP FOR DEPTH
    DT Fred Evans – CUT
    DT Letroy Guion – CUT
    LB Xavier Adibi – KEEP FOR DEPTH
    LB Erin Henderson – KEEP
    CB Benny Sapp – CUT
    S Tyrell Johnson – CUT
    S Jarrad Page – KEEP FOR DEPTH
    LS Matt Katula – CUT
