    Man that would be a nice pickup, but if we do sign him then one of our backs will more then likely be gone to create roster space.

    Vikings | Team offers contract to Richardson

    Vikings.com reports free agent FB Tony Richardson (Chiefs) said he has a contract offer on the table from the Minnesota Vikings. "One thing I asked was to be able to go home and absorb everything. I'm going to do that through prayer and talking to my family, you now making a decision like this is obviously a big decision, but they are giving me the opportunity to sleep on it and let them know sometime tomorrow," said Richardson. He said he has interest from other teams, but he has not made any other visits.
    At least that gives me some comfort that he has more character than T.O. or C Pepp.

    I'm sure everyone knows by now he's a Viking.

    Chiefs FB Richardson joins VikingsBy Len Pasquarelli
    ESPN.com


    The Minnesota Vikings, who essentially played with no fullback on the roster under Mike Tice, have added one of the NFL's best players at the position for the West Coast-style attack that first-year head coach Brad Childress will install for this season.

    Two-time Pro Bowl performer Tony Richardson, an 11-year veteran who had played his entire career with the Kansas City Chiefs, on Tuesday reached agreement in principle on a two-year contract, ESPN.com has learned. The deal will pay Richardson about $2.5 million.

    Richardson, 34, visited with Minnesota officials over the weekend, received a contract proposal on Monday and told the Vikings he needed a day to consider it. On Tuesday, he ended a long relationship with the Chiefs and with a city where he had become a fixture on and off the field, and accepted the deal, which includes a six-figure signing bonus.

    There were a number of teams interested in the classy Richardson, and there were even some discussions about re-signing in Kansas City.

    A former Auburn star, Richardson originally entered the league with Dallas as an undrafted college free agent in 1994, and spent some time on the Cowboys' practice squad that season. He was released, signed with the Chiefs in 1995 and spent the next 11 seasons with the team.

    A conventional fullback, one whose statistics aren't indicative of his contribution, Richardson is a solid lead blocker and receiver. His acquisition completes the remaking of the Minnesota backfield, which will be completed overturned from the one that opened the 2005 season, given that Brad Johnson replaces Daunte Culpepper at quarterback and free agent addition Chester Taylor is the new tailback.

    Having a strong character player like Richardson in the locker room will also be a plus for Childress as he attempts to improve the Vikings' image.

    Richardson has carried 395 times for 1,576 yards and 15 touchdowns and has 177 receptions for 1,298 yards and nine touchdowns in his career. His best season was in 2000, when he posted career bests for rushing attempts (147) and yards (697) and also added 58 receptions for 468 yards. The durable fullback has played in 163 games and started in 96 of them. Richardson was named to the Pro Bowl squad following the 2003-2004 seasons.

    That is a nice pickup! Now we have the best blockers Minnesota has had in a long while! BOOM! Every snap lineman jumping off the ball and punishing the defense! Chester Taylor MVP! The luckiest FA in the NFL. Think of this formation KSausser Mckinnie Hutchinson Birk Herrera Johnson
    Johnson(Cutler other)
    Richardson
    Taylor

  7. Re: Vikes visit with Tony Richardson

    Could you imagine the runs Taylor could have behind this guy????
    With Hutch up on the line my god!!!! It looks great so far, I hope the VIKINGS keep blasting away with all the deals they have done. Get a great draft and keep trucking into the 2006 season.

    Thanks PurplePeopleEaters for the sig AWSOME!!

    This move makes me curious as to the future of Sasser, he won't be lineing up instead of Wiggins.

    There are very few 2 TE sets in a WCO, unless Brad has something up his sleeve.

    I think K. Sassers days may be numbered here.
