    Viking Fans: How about Kearse?

    Several media outlets are reporting that the Vikes are expressing interest in Jevon Kearse.

    DE is one of the positions that the Vikes need and have thus far struck out in landing one in free agency. There will likely be a decent DE available in the draft, but in all likelihood anyone they draft at that point in the first round won't be a difference maker for at least a year or two (if ever, given our history of DE draftees).

    I say take a chance on Kearse if the price is right. You could play him exclusively on passing downs to keep his snap count down and lessen the risk of injury.

    I heard this to I think it would be a great player at a much needed position, We tried for Justin Smith but Javon would be a great needed help hopefully Zigi is willing to put up the money.

    If we get him I hope he stays healthy. We already have a problem with hurt DEs.

    Re: Viking Fans: How about Kearse?

    I like this idea. There is no way we give him a big contract though. If it is an incentive-laden contract I am perfectly fine with paying him. If he can stay healthy he definitely would be a huge addition to our defense, as he would add depth and an experienced pass rusher who could teach the young guys we got a thing or two. all in all I would love this move.

    Re: Viking Fans: How about Kearse?

    Yeah a big contract is out of the question but I would love to have him! Seems like we draft a DE every draft and we go into every offseason saying this is a need of ours! Tired of that...

    Re: Viking Fans: How about Kearse?

    Depends on what kind of health he is in....is he decent?

    I'm dissappointed Rosenfels sounds like a distant dream now...I about peed my pants when I heard he was a possibility.

    Has anyone heard where Kearse is going? Has he signed with anyone yet?
