??? We have receivers dropping the ball all over the place & they bring up a CB from the practice squad.

The only thing I can figure is they expect Smoot to be away this weekend & need the depth.

So this is why we cut Baker.

I guess he just outperformed him. And our DB's hasn't been exactly stunning.

And doesn't he also return kicks. Punt relieve for MM maybe?

Did they sign him to the roster after the Smoot situation or before?

bbbbb but what about jason carter? i really wish they would quit jerkin him around, from the practice squad to the team, back to practice squad. i would really like to see him play a real game in the nfl. i hope gordon does well. i dont know how he plays because i dont watch college sports, and i dont remember him in the preseason. so we will see i guess.

Most likely after, since he found out right after the game... but regardless you can be sure the Vikings organization knew what was up with Smoot's plans for the week before the media did....

I dunno man, after all he only went to Texas A&M, he might collapse mentally and develop bad habits if we throw him into a game situation too early.

Gordon promoted (http://www.startribune.com/blogs/vikings/)
Tuesday, November 7th, 2006
by Judd Zulgad

The Vikings filled their open roster spot this afternoon by promoting cornerback Charles Gordon from the practice squad. Gordon, a rookie who was a two-way star at Kansas, was an odds-on favorite to make the roster during training camp before he suffered a knee injury.

Gordon gives the team extra depth at a position that was dealt a tragic blow this week. The half-brother of starter Fred Smoot was killed Sunday in a car accident, and Smoot has returned to his Mississippi home to mourn. It is unclear when Smoot will return.

The Vikings had worked out defensive back Derrick Strait last week but Strait signed Tuesday with NFC North rival Chicago.

Rookie Cedric Griffin was used in the nickel Sunday at San Francisco after rotating on a series-by-series basis with Ronyell Whitaker in recent weeks. Whitaker only played on special teams Sunday.

Maybe?

But apparently the coaching staff that sees him everyday doesn't feel he can help the team at this time, and I guess that I will believe them since they see him everyday instead of people that think he is going to be a savior because he had a good preseason against 3rd and 4th stringers that are out of the league!
