Default Red McCombs shocks the world....

And spends some freakin money!!

EDEN PRAIRIE – The Vikings have called a 4:15pm news conference, presumably to announce the signing of free agent cornerback Antoine Winfield to a multi-year contract.

Terms have not yet been disclosed, although the deal is believed to be on par with the six-year, $30 million deal with the Jets that Winfield left on the table a day earlier.

That deal also included a $10 million signing bonus.

Hours after agreeing in principle to a contract with the New York Jets on Thursday, Winfield boarded a private jet to Minneapolis to meet with Vikings officials.

Tice, quarterback Daunte Culpepper and wide receiver Randy Moss each called Winfield on Thursday night to convince him to make the trip. Winfield was scheduled to visit Winter Park on Thursday afternoon, but canceled three flights as his agent finalized a contract with the Jets.

He boarded the private jet - owned by Tice's friend Mike Pegram, the owner of 1998 Kentucky Derby winner Real Quiet - in Farmingdale, N.Y. along with his wife, Erniece, and his agent, Richard Katz, around 11 p.m. Thursday night and arrived in Minneapolis early Friday morning.

The 5-foot-9 cornerback started all 16 games last season with Buffalo, recording 92 tackles and an interception. In 72 games over five seasons – all with the Bills – Winfield has posted 313 tackles and six interceptions.

Free agency notes:
• Ravens wide receiver Marcus Robinson and Seattle linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski also visited Winter Park on Friday.
• The club canceled Pittsburgh tight end Mark Bruener’s visit, which was scheduled for Thursday.
• The Vikings are negotiating a contract with Texans defensive tackle Steve Martin, but Martin will visit the Giants on Friday.
• Linda Bodley, the agent for Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent, told the FAN the Vikings have not contacted her client.

HALLI-FREAKIN-LUIA!!!

Red, you my boy! I'd also hope that he drafts some linebackers too.

I'd also like to see some D-Line help for Chris Hovan. Anyone know any good D-linesman that is available.

Damn...I was just reading on the Cowboys site last night, that Dallas was trying really hard to lure him to big D. Ah well...

heck, the Jets had him verbally committed and he backed out.....

McCombs is usually a tightwad, so this is a shocker, I agree.....Winfield is a good cover corner.....

Don't forget the Moss deal...

And, Sapp is still available... but after one big money player, no way they will go for two... so, I don't know, Kevin Williams and Hovan are a decent combination, and hopefully Williams will continue to get better.

Well, before we build a statue in Red's honor, let's remember....league rules dictate he HAS to spend a large chunk of that $33.5m in cap space.

However, it is nice to see we got the guy we realy, REALLY wanted. Ravens WR Marcus Robinson is in town tonight to meet with Tice. Hopefully, that goes well. He would be a great compliment to Moss.

Too bad their are hardly any defensive lineman in this years crop. Probably bette rsuited to draft one, although I would like to see us pick up Marcellus Wiley or Bertrand Berry.

Twonames in the draft that are popping up with frewuency, are USC DE Kenechi udeze and Miami LB DJ Williams, for our #19 pick.

Wiley is interviewing with Seattle... which, him and Wistrom would account for Randle retiring...

And, yeah, Marcus Robinson would be a good 2nd reciever to Moss... not to mention Kelly Campbell, a little man who showed me a lot last year.

Side note : Yes, I'm real siked we got Winfield, he's not the type of cornerback that will intercept 7-8 passes, but he's a hard hitter, and can pick the ball off like anyone else... we should have a good secondary in 2004... not to mention, I can't wait to see how our Defensive Coordinator can get his defense to perform... already getting way too excited about this year...

Udeze won't be available at the #19 spot, but DJ Williams will be. Trade up in the 2nd round and get LB Teddy Lehman or S Brandon Everage.
