    It'd be nice. Maybe they'll abandon the salary cap. :truck:

    With our FO, i'd probably be when he's at the end of his career a shell of himself...see Ahman Green

    I can definitely see this happening. When Peterson is around 32, knees gone, barely run into the offensive lineman's back. Hopefully he will be nearly as good as Ahman Green was for us!

    He's said if he wasn't drafted by the Vikings he would of liked to be drafted by the Texans. Too bad he was picked right before us in 2007 and we ended up trading back and picking Amobi Okoye

    Hey man give the Brother a break, he's just imagining being home and not up north freezing to death when walking outside in the morning to get his newspaper.

    He won't be the same player in four years.

    We didn't really "trade back" with Atlanta, we had already swapped firsts with them due to the Schaub trade moving us from #8 to #10.

    Thanks, I like that idea. It sure would help the family loyalty issues.

    Ugh, right? Who wants a Hall of Fame caliber player who actually wants to play for our franchise?

    When you get him matters. Ask Arizona about the guy Peterson is chasing.

    How many times do we get burned before we open our damn eyes?!?

    Green, Moulds, Reed

    Oh but they can provide leadership and be mentors.

    We don't need another RB w high mileage.
