Minnesota has one future receiver position locked up with Sidney Rice, he's a beast!
Exactly my dog, so we need to bring in some kind of veteran cat who is actually good and we can make a serious run, or just draft a BIG time wideout. And I don't think desean jackson is the right choice (Mel kiper).

Vikings release 7-year veteran Dwight Smith; safety position thin

Dwight Smith’s two loud seasons with Minnesota ended Wednesday when the Vikings released the seven-year veteran safety, making him a free agent.

Signed just before training camp in 2006, Smith—who had two interceptions for champion Tampa Bay in the Super Bowl following the 2002 season—was productive with the Vikings on the field. He picked off four passes, including a 93-yard touchdown return last November against the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

He formed a reliable tandem at safety with Pro Bowl selection Darren Sharper, and had a clear presence in the locker room. His raspy voice was easily heard above the din and he carried himself in a c*cksure manner, but he was also respected enough to be included on the eight-member leadership committee formed by coach Brad Childress to maintain communication with players.

Smith, however, didn’t always agree with the team’s defensive philosophy and had some conflicts with Childress. Then there were the two arrests, once for indecent conduct with a woman in a stairwell outside a downtown club, and also for obstructing traffic and possessing marijuana in a car outside a strip club.

The drug charge, a petty misdemeanor, was dropped earlier this month.

Childress, in Indianapolis for the NFL’s scouting combine, called reporters himself to announce the team’s decision.

“We appreciate his contributions. We’re just going in a different direction,” Childress said. “I just think it’s the right thing to do for him and his agent before free agency begins.”

Sharper is only under contract for one more season. Backups Mike Doss and Tank Williams will become unrestricted free agents next week. Certainly, given the depth chart at his position, Smith’s behavior off the field factored into the move—even if the coach wasn’t willing to acknowledge it.

“I’m not going to cast any aspersions on Dwight,” Childress said. “I’m going to let it stand for itself and stay on the high road.”

Smith, a third-round draft pick by the Buccaneers in 2001 out of Akron, has 22 interceptions in 107 career NFL games. He spent one season, 2005, with the New Orleans Saints.

VIKES TO BID HELLO TO MADIEU?

Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that the Vikings are working on the parameters of a contract with safety Madieu Williams.

He's reportedly going to fly to Minnesota today to meet with the team, and a deal could be done.

The Vikings desperately need help at safety, given the release of Dwight Smith and the free-agent status of Tank Williams and Mike Doss.


Hopefully the vikings can pick up justin smith and bernard berrian.

The Vikings are working to set up a visit with free agent DE Corey Smith.
Smith wouldn't fill Minnesota's hole as a full-time defensive end, but can play special teams and rush the passer. He forced three fumbles in 2007

Carolina's DE Julius Peppers to Vikings?

If Carolina becomes convinced it can't re-sign Julius Peppers, who becomes an unrestricted free agent next year and wants a boatload of money, and if the Vikings are willing to part with their first-round (No. 17) draft pick next month plus at least $20 million in guaranteed money, Minnesota might be able to trade for the star defensive end. -- Pioneer Press
