NFL Information on Minnesota Vikings,



The views of Plexico Burress has taken a turn for the worse. Reports published to all NFL teams, is that Plaxico Burress was offered a 5 year deal and when the Vikings denied. The Plax camp came upset and left town.

THAT IS FALSE- The latest is that Plaxico Burress was offered a deal from the Vikings mid afternoon Friday. Burress and his managing staff said they will tell the Vikings sometime over the weekend. Surprising, Burress was seen late last night taking a flight to Milwaukee, and latest reports suggest he rented a vehicle and he and his agent drove to Green Bay to meet with Mike Sherman, and Ted Thompson early this morning. His other staff are still in Milwaukee, so that could mean he will either listen to the Green Bay staff, and sign, or drive back to Milwaukee and take the Vikings offer.

Reports he went to Chicago, are false.


Darren Sharper met with Viking players late last night, and will meet with Mike Tice first thing Saturday. The Vikings feel that Sharper will for sure sign with the club, and it's just a matter of the length of contract.



---------------------------------

IMPORTANT NOTICE-

There has been some suggestions, that our information on the NFL, and the Vikings are lies, and causing a distraction.

To let ALL of the members know, is that I DO NOT WORK for the NFL information committee. I am relaying reports that are sent to a reliable source.

I am the same person who was on the KFAN early this week, and I am the same person Steve Cohem mentioned 2 weeks ago about the Pat Williams deal.

I feed information to teams that have been reported on, as well when the local groups contact us, we sometimes do radio appearances, or use our partners.

This information has all been sent to sports information groups, that are copy registered to ESPN, and SI GPC.

For those who sent me email, or called, and left messages. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS!

I will not reply. I work for a sports managment firm, and I do not have permission to relay messages, and my employees do not as well. WE DO NOT RETURN CALLS!

Thank you, and you have been informed.

I must say, as politely as I can, that this guy is a crazy b.s. master. No way Green Bay would be looking at Plax. 1) We have great recievers already. 2) We have no money to sign him.

Well with that said, I think I am going to put my trust in your info, but I have one suggestion. If you want to feed us info, dont post 3 or 4 messages at once. That will make people in here think that you are full of $(%*.

Now, the latest that I have heard is that Plax plans on firing his agent becasue of his lack of ability to get him signed anywhere. What is your take on that?

Also, why then did you state yesterday that Plax "Was Signed".......

And I just read, Plax is already in Philly......Not Milwaukee

Plaxico Burress agent is Michael Harrison. I heard that rumour just about 1 hour ago. And KFAN Reporter told me that he heard the same thing, but at this time, all i heard is that Plax was given wrong information by league sources that his agent screwed up on the Giant offer.

I doubt it would happen, because if he took the Giants offer or another offer we don't know about, the agent would file a lawsuit agasint agent rights of the NAS board. I heard the Rosens were interested.

yeahhhhh. Well, since *my sources* haha say he's considering Philly but don't mention considerations of GB or where he really is right now. The cloak and dagger, oh its killing me. *eyes roll*
Although I buy he might fire his agent. LOL

HE's just trading in rumors, no more, no less. His insider apparently smokes da chronic and is having fun with him. KFAN Reporter = IowaViking Most "insider information" is just that...rumor and speculation, so you have to take it for what it is. Half the stuff you all hear on the radio is based on the same stuff...rumor and speculation called insider information. So whether its here from this guy or on the dial, its still speculation. Only the agent and the team truly know the deal.

I would of thought that in such a reliable report they would at least spell the name right.

That being said, I'd like to think we still might get Plax for a year deal at least. Why not give him a whirl? He's got the skills.

The stench of BS. You can't always be too quick to judge.. but much of what this guy has been posting didn't sound believable from the get go.

My question is, why not give him a longer contract? Some have said that we might go after Williams even if we sign Plax, but in that case it is pointless to sign Burress in my opinion. I think that if we only committ to him for one year we are going to regret it because with Pep throwing to him, you know he is going to have stats.

I agree with you a little, but why not kick the ideas around. Its worth the entertainment.

I am tired of this guy. The info he is giving us is total bs. I get on the website and see *****Darren Sharper to sign in 5 minutes********* and stuff like that and get all excited, but then I see that the deal doesn't sound for real and at the bottom of the page it says that the packers are going to trade Ahman Green.

WTF? why would the packers trade Ahman Green? He is basically the only young player worth anything that they have left.

I am tired of this guy feeding us crap.

Purple eaters? Stay calm. We won't let you down!! Darren Sharper isn't official, but my opinion it's a done deal. We heard it's been signed already but will wait for the announcement. Also heard they have to look into his salary status for '07. The Vikings have apparently covered there cap space for that year when it comes to veterans.



With Ahman Green- it sounds crazy, but I just got off the phone with someone and they couldn't believe it either. I reported it early maybe because it's not getting attention, but it might happen soon.

fine. I will believe you for now but if none of this is true I will be angry.

Plax isn't our kind of guy, we took a step in the direction of the Patriots, with players without huge egos and such, when we traded moss. I'm glad we didnt get him, we'll pick someone up in a trade or the draft.

KFANreporter

Purple eater, don't worry. I will let you down! I'm not or have I ever been interested in convincing you. I'm doing this because there are hundreds of hundreds of messages to us a day. I also do this for other teams, but they got there own site board. Also I do this for the radio stations, and with guys like cohen, and dent. In Chicago, I do it for Murray, and Gordon.

In Minneapolis it's not me, were busy, and I'm just working on a piece for my article. I'm also going to be on t.v on sports wrap tonight with Mike, and Mike. So come on down Purple Eater, and stay calm. It's going to be alright!

KFANreporter: why do you try to keep posting rumors that have a 0% chance of happening, if your going to try to pull all of our chains, do it in a convincing way..

Hey KFANReporter....I have a serious question for you. If you really do work for a Sports Management Company, what kind of schooling did you go through? I am not being sarcastic...I go to UF and I would love to do what you do for a living. I am thinking of a double major with Sports Management and Business. I would really appreciate some feedback.

I don't know if you have "great" wr's, but I agree that you do have a solid 1-2 in Walker and Driver, and a decent 3 in Ferguson. Why would Burress want to go somewhere he'd likely get less touches than in Pittsburgh. I don't buy the GB visit.

He isnt letting us down! Almost every other post that is made on this sight starts with rumors! How the hell is this any different!?

I have a solution! If you think the guy is full of B.S. (which it very well might be) dont go into his posts. Just ignore them and click on a different one.

I am not trying to be rude by any means at all. I respect the opinions of those that think this guy is B.S., and at the same time I respect that he MIGHT be giving us useful info. I am not saying that either side of this matter is right by any means at all. All I am trying to say is that I want to hear what this guy has to say, just like I awnt to hear what any of you have to say.

Just ignore the guy if you dont want to read his posts, and let us who do, look retarded to you.

KFANreporter- I am also interested in what type of schooling you have had. I am interested in being a sportswriter and if you are for real we would all like to know who you are and where you got your degree. If you want to keep feeding us info we would like to think of you as a reliable source. So far I am not convined that any of this is going to happen but if you seriously want to be our information giver and really work for KFAN we would all like to gain your trust first so that perhaps we can trust what you are tell us.

I agree with you. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but this person is obviously trying to imitate the things going on with "other" Viking websites in the last day or two. On a side note, the Plax to GB thing is ridiculous. Not because the Packers have three WR's already or no money, just the whole idea. Why would he take a flight to Milwaukee and rent a car to drive to GB himself when they could just fly directly to GB? Could he not afford the extra $50 to get there directly?

It's total BS with a few things that might happen. I am pretty sure we will sign sharper today, and he will use that to say his other rumors might be true too.

It really makes a lot of sense that plax is going to green bay, since they have big money tied up already in their 3 WR's. Please, he is going to phily.

BS!!!!!! Just ignore him.

They are without a doubt great recievers. Both had around 1200 or more yards last season and both atleast 70 catches. Driver I believe has been to the probowl and has been one of the best in the NFC for the last few years. Walker is top three in the NFC this year and went to the ProBowl as well. Great recievers indeed.

I agree he wouldnt get any more touches in GB then he would in Pittsburgh, but its more unbelievable because of the money he wants and the lack there of in Green Bay.

KFAN= DuhBears? Hey, anything's possible. :lol:

Seriously, I can't wait for the FA singing period to be over, and looking foward to 04/23-04/24 when the draft takes place. It's fun to talk about who might go where but after a while it gets to be too much, specially when there's no truth to such rumors.
