    Awesome. One of my favorites. I always felt he was underrated.

    Re: Vikings sign Marquis Hamilton

    That is great for Hamilton!! He will be a hard worker, and will do the things most receivers don't want to do, like block. I bet he plays some on special teams too. I can see him being a poor mans Hines Ward type player.

    I'm really surprised Christopher Lyle hasn't signed with a team, I really thought he could have a future in the NFL.. He has the build to play DE in the NFL IMO, he probably would never be a sack guy, but would be a sold run stopper.

    Re: Vikings sign Marquis Hamilton

    Congrats to Marquis. Hopefully he can make the team. His size and speed could provide him with a home on special teams. Here's what Vikings VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman said in the article about Marquis:
    “Marquis is a big wide receiver with good size who showed a good ability catching the ball. His performance over the weekend warranted a further look as we continue this spring.”

    I was hoping Hamilton would get a shot with the Vikes! Hope to see him wear the purple and gold for years to come!


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    As a Cyclone I'm stoked for Hamilton. As a Bears fan, I'm not too happy about this.

    He's a guy that doesn't put up great 40 times, but has good football speed.
