Are they on drugs??

Surtain AND OUR #2 for a RB?? An oft-injured RB?? They got it bass-ackwards. Shoulda been Surtain for Bennett and their #2.

This is assuming the AP story is legit.

Story is losing steam. We didn't have a second round pick to begin with. Here's the quote from the Pioneer Press...

A little birdie says the Vikings last weekend offered running back Michael Bennett to Miami, where ex-Vikings offensive coordinator Scott Linehan works, for cornerback Patrick Surtain and the Dolphins' second-round draft pick. With that selection, the Vikings would have taken kicker Mike Nugent of Ohio State.

But Miami said no thanks, and Surtain ended up going to Kansas City for the Chiefs' second-round pick.

Perhaps the source got it backwards?? Or it just wasn't true to begin with.

Bennett isn't good enough for a second alone. Why would a pro bowl shut down corner be thrown in also?

Does this really matter? the draft is over and we have our RB, this story is irrelevant

Would you still not want to discuss it if the story claimed the Vikings offered #7 and #18??

I wonder if we'll ever see Saban dealing away draft picks for the following draft the way that other coach of ours did anytime. Here's hoping to another stellar draft next year with a hell of a lot more picks.

That would have been a terrible trade.We need to stay away from the injury prone players.

They probably forgot that Wanny was gone and Speilman wasn't in charge anymore!
