My preference is to keep an extra lineman on either side of the ball or a secondary guy who excels on special teams than the extra linebacker. So if Haralson makes the team, for me, I just don't see it. But if we do go that route and keep an extra LB, I don't see Rufus helping us much out this year as opposed to some of the other LB's that are on the bubble. This isn't me knocking Rufus at all, I just don't feel he's ready to contribute which is why the PS imo, is the most logical scenario for both sides.
In a 3-4 I can see us keeping 9, especially since it appears to be our weak spot. And LB's are typically very good ST'ers.

Here's my take so far...
ILB - David Hawthorne
ILB - Ramon Humber
ILB - Curtis Lofton
ILB - Kevin Reddick (or Jonathan Vilma if healthy)
OLB - Junior Galette
OLB - Rufus Johnson
OLB - Eric Martin (or Baraka Atkins, can't decide yet)
OLB - Parys Haralson
OLB - Martez Wilson

Re: Haralson a Saint

If he returns to 2012 or even earlier form we may have actually inadvertently upgraded that position, this dude is a BEAST from the highlights and stats i've read and seen..
If he's even halfway there he's basically a faster Will Smith at best.

Re: Haralson a Saint

Good list Danno, I'm sure one or two WRs they keep will play special teams as well

Probably same amount he's been getting paid, the pay usually transfers over unless player is at their final contract year then he can negotiate terms.
His pay with San Francisco was 2.4Mil

I was thinking the exact same thing.

However, the appropriate time for a "Vikings suck" comment is ALWAYS.

2012 form would be a bad thing since he missed all of that season with a torn triceps.

If 9 ends up being the number, my feelings would definitely change. I'm looking at a Steelers roster projection and people anticipate them keeping 10 guys. I can't say I was familiar of how the position slot shakes up in a 3-4, so I'm just going to assume I may be wrong here regarding Rufus' likelihood of making the team... if the number is that high.

$1.3 mil, he re-did his contract to stay this year with niners. My only concern is if we moved this fast, Wilson or Gallette are not healing as quickly as the staff would like.

There are three separate costs associated with Will Smiths contract.

His base didnt explode until 2011.

Then there is the 2m roster bonus every year.

His dead money hit hasn't been below 7M since 2009 which is the year he had 13 sacks.

So by the time he was not preforming to his contract value it was too expensive to cut him due to Dead Money..

So in reality it has been cheaper to keep him and swallow the cap hit than to suffer the dead money escalation.

Reference
Will Smith Contracts, Salaries, Cap Hits, & Transactions

It was bad from the start but no one knew he wouldn't live up to expectations until it was too late.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Also at the time you had a good tandem with Grant which meant only one was getting a double team but then Grant went to crap which led to Smith drawing the double team which led to his lower numbers.
