The Vikings May Have Found A Dealer

Former Vikings head coach Brad Childress is reportedly joining the Cleveland Browns as their offensive coordinator, the first coaching gig he has landed since being fired by the Vikings in the middle of the 2010 season.

Us Vikings fans remember all too well how Childress had an affinity for bringing players to Minnesota that he was familiar with from his days in Philadelphia.  I can’t help but wonder if, despite the fact that he has a lesser role now, the same might be true now that he is in Cleveland.

Maybe fullback Naufahu Tahi or tight end Jeff Dugan will once again find employment under Childress.  Perhaps the Browns will show some sudden interest in trading for a guy Childress vouches for, such as Anthony Herrera who Childress developed a close relationship with as Herrera went through the process of gaining citizenship.

  3. Adam,
    Any idea where the Vikes are salary cap wise? Last year they couldn’t do much since they did not have too much space.

    1. I think we are dead last in the league as far as cap room… According to this list that was put out in August of last year:

      With that being said, I think we’ll free up a lot of space by losing some of the people the Vikings may part ways with this offseason. Check out this link for Vikings players in order of their salaries:
