    Well, we've got an available spot on the roster with Holliday being IR'ed. With the familiarity they have with Moats, it shouldn't take the FO/coaches long to figure out where he rates compared to Johnson and Henry. I guess it depends - at least in part - on how strongly Kubes and Co. feel about his pass protection shortcomings.

    Personal note - I'd still like to see more of Johnson - hope he gets more time with the offense than he did vs. N.O.

    Why not? To me, Slaton needs to feel all the heat he can still feel while we can put it on him.

    With Slaton and Johnson...getting Moats back is just more of the same type of small back. I think we need to get another big bruiser in here. (I told Kubiak to draft joe frazier uh i mean lagarette blount.)

    Although LB, LB, and LB appear to be our biggest needs right now, the Vikes just released Ryan Moats. Wonder if he gets signed to replace Tate, or if they move ahead with the four rb's they have.

    I always liked Moats. Ever since i saw him live at the buff game. I would love to have him bak and add sum depth. Foster Slaton and Moats

    Did he ever get to play this preseason? I've seen a lot of bits and pieces froms Vikes games and haven't seen him. Dunno why the Vikes picked him up anyway. He wasn't going to fill Taylor's position

    Yeah, I saw him get a couple of touches in one game.
