The NFL began a new League Year on March 12, and the news came fast and furious once teams were able to do business. Long-rumored trades become official, core players were re-signed, coveted free agents made big-money decisions and teams manipulated their rosters to put themselves in optimum salary cap position.
Through it all, the Vikings were significant players during the process. They re-signed RT Phil Loadholt and several other of their own free agents, they swapped WR Percy Harvin for three draft choices (including a 1st-rounder this year) and they did what they had to do to clear room under the salary cap.
The move that made the most noise on a national level, though, was the signing of WR Greg Jennings.
So just where does the Jennings signing rank in terms of relevance across the NFL? Bucky Brooks of NFL.com has considered all the roster shuffling and has compiled a list of the 10 most significant. It’s worth a quick read.
Let us know what you think of Brooks’ list and of his opinion regarding the Jennings acquisition by leaving your thoughts in the comments section below this entry…
