Ronyell Whitaker seems to be tearing the NFL Europe up this year.. Could be a possible candidate for nickel in the NFL?

It is possible, but don't get excited... I watched one of the games and he made a couple good plays, but also got burnt for about a 50-yard TD. I just don't know if Childress will like his personality that much and maybe Tomlin was just being nice to an old player/friend. He talks WAY too much! He made a tackle, not a great one, on special teams after the guy had gone about 60 yards.... and got in the guy's face and started yapping. I could see it if the got him inside the 20, but not after a great return.

You always see guys getting all excited after making a hit, even if it's after a first down. It's not uncommon. Hell, Smoot yaps before the game even starts. I doubt he gets demoted to nickel corner though.

That why i like Winfield so much, talk is cheap. Winfield walks the walk and he don't have to talk.

we still shouldve brought somebody in for the nickle job rather than allowing 2 inexperienced guys and an nfl europe player battle for it..if one of our starters goes down, then that could be a serious weaknes

This report of Ronyell Whitaker looking good is pointless IMO. He is going up against reveivers over there who probably won't even make most NFL rosters and if they do they are going to be #5's or else practice squad material. There is no way he is going to be our Nickleback just because of what he is doing in NFL Europe. That league has yielded some good players in the past but as a corner you need to be able to cover NFL talent before I am willing to believe you can be our number 3 corner.

Interceptions don't necessarily mean a corner is doing well either. Some of the best corners in the NFL rarely get interceptions because they are so good they are rarely ever thrown at. Remember DeWayne Washington? The guy was a POS but he would have like 5 or 6 picks every year.

For what it is worth:

Yesterday, my brother had a layover in Cincinnatti and he ran into Chad Greenway. Greenway was in Cincy for an interview, he was heading to Tenn, and said that Minnesota requested an interview and was planning on going.


All this means is that we are interested, doesn't mean anything else.

Oh and it is a neat story!

I was telling the truth for the record. It didn't come from the ball boy inside the Vikings training room or the source at KFAN or ShreadderGuy! LOL!

Missed that one. But did you at least verify the story with the ball boy or the janitor?

NO, it was shoddy reporting on my part. :lol:

Purely amature on my part!
