Since I'm going to school in Minneapolis, I'm forced to listen to the Vikings games when I go to the local sports bar to watch the fins. Don't know if anybody else caught this, but during the Vikes game the announcers referred to Mixon as "One of the most dominant run stuffers in the league" How could we let a guy like that slip through our fingers? One of the guys also referred to his cohost as a "big ballet guy." Where do they get some of these guys?
Mixon WAS one of the best run stuffing DEs in the league....until he dropped a lot of weight and thought he was a pass rush speacialist. he seemed to lose a lot of his strength and couldn't use the same leverage for what ever reason without the weight.
If he has his game strait, and his weight up, he is a very formidible DE.
Just keep rubbing your hands together and hope that they both do really well. If they do really well combined with those contracts they got. We could get 2 4th rounders (when factoring in our loss/gain factors) in compensation next draft for the people we lost compared to what we gained.
