    I say we trade Jamie Sharper to the vikings to let him reunite with his brother.

    Hou gets : 7th overall pick (from min. which they got from oak.)


    Min. gets : Jamie Sharper
    13th overall pick( from Hou.)


    NFL draft: "with the 7th pick in the 2005 NFL draft the Houston Texans select Derrick Johnson out of the University Of Texas. :woot

    Maybe the extra attention paid to the defensive side of the ball will help them advance, now if they still had Moss...they would be scary....but I think they will easily make playoffs this year

    Bottom line is Sharper is better and more experienced than EJ and will do a whole lot better. Also with Jamie there that might cause the sharper brothers to play better as they challenge each other. And as far as you're ragone for culpepper go's vinny my idea wasnt completely crazy if Tice wasnt busy scalping tickets they could really notice that a 3-4 would help them. Also their front 7 isnt as talented as you'd think. How many pro-bowls does napolean harris have?Exactly.

    Sharper would be an upgrade over EJ because EJ isn't a good fit for their system...He's more of a run-stuffer than a coverage guy, and Minny likes to frequently drop their MLB into coverage...Sharper would definitely be a good fit for them...

    That being said, I don't think this would be a good trade for us...Can we handle another top 10 salary? For the upcoming season, yes we can, but a couple years down the road, it could make for some trouble...

    On paper. I've heard some negative comments about Henderson, too. At the time of the Moss trade, there was speculation that if Henderson didn't raise his game, Harris would move to MLB & the Vikes would look at LBs in the draft.

    But, the Vikings are not going to trade down from #7. Look at their moves, & they've tried to solidify their defense in free agency. Their biggest hole left is at WR & they may need to trade up for a shot at Edwards or Williams.

    A couple of years down the road, Walker, Glenn, Coleman, McKinney, & Wiegert could all be coming off the books. Their 2005 combined salaries are just over $17.9 million. That's 21% of the 2005 salary cap. I think we could handle another top 10 salary a couple of years down the road.

    Yep, EJ has a DWI & assault charge on the books since joining the Vikes.

    This is a horrible trade for Houston. We lose JS for a rookie OLB, who MIGHT be there at 7?

    If we give up Jamie, I want a legit starter.

    I didn't realize that those 5 counted so much against the cap...

    I checked the salaries of the 4 most recent 7th overall picks and came to the conclusion that we could add that salary no problem...$4.5 million a year was the highest average of the most recent 7th overalls (Roy Williams)...

    They're going to have a great defense on paper. Their DLine alone is something to be envious about. They've also got Mixon who's pretty good opposite Udeze at DE, and they've got Steve Martin, a starter at one point for them, as a backup. Their secondary should have a field day if that DLine lives up to its potential.

    It could be a good trade but we'd be screwed if Browns or Bucs took DJ. But I guess that if one of the 2 took DJ than maybe we could get a WR like BMW or Braylon Edwards. I don't know. It'd be risky but our D would be so much better if DJ did end up at 7.

    No way do the Vikings give up their 7th pick for Sharper. At most, we can expect a 3rd round pick for Sharper.
