    Maddox released

    The Vikings had the unpleasant task of getting rid of a player after signing OL Adam O'Connor Tuesday. That player wound up being safety Andre Maddox.

    * There is some talk that getting first-round rookies signed this year may be more difficult than in previous years due to the collective bargaining agreement stipulations agreed upon in 2006. Teams are looking to hedge their own bets when it comes to signing bonuses, as teams and agents work out deals that have roster bonuses and option bonuses rather than pro-rated signing bonuses that count against the salary cap for the length of the player contract. Olsen’s deal, for example, includes just $250,000 in what is termed as a signing bonus, but has $720,000 in “roster bonus” money and $3.5 million in “option bonus” money. Considering how far under the cap the Vikings are, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Vikings structure a deal for Adrian Peterson that does most or all of the heavy lifting in the first year of the deal to open up cap space for future seasons.
    That would be great, sign him to a lonnnnnnnnnng contract and pay most of it upfront.

    Then get Faneca next year if the line doesn't get its game together!

    Chilly has got a lot of these young and Europa O-lineman coming through there.
    Maybe he will find somethign special.
