    Re: Vikings | Berrian agrees to terms on six-year contract

    Per Rotoworld...

    The Vikings signed Bernard Berrian to a six-year, $42 million contract, with a $16 million signing bonus. He'll get $23 million in the first three years.

    Making it harder to sign Randy Moss. Berrian could be overmatched if expected to be a true "number one" receiver, but he adds production and talent to a woeful passing game. Tarvaris Jackson now has two burners in Berrian and Sidney Rice, with Bobby Wade still likely to be active underneath. Expect Berrian's numbers to take a slight hit in Minnesota, where Jackson is still a major question mark.
    Also, you can cross Dante Stallworth off your respective lists.
    NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports the Browns have reached agreement with Donte' Stallworth.

    Terms aren't known, but it's a great fit for both sides. Cleveland gets depth and speed at wideout, while Stallworth fits best supporting player. He'll make the Browns tough to defend lining up with Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow, and Joe Jurevicius. His fantasy numbers should uptick because he'll see the field more than in New England, but don't expect his first 1,000-yard season. 850 is a better target.
    AND Devery Henderson.

    The Saints re-signed WR Devery Henderson to a one-year, $2 million contract.

    Masochists. Seeing the Saints bring back their drop-prone wideout is the most surprising free agent move yet, although the price was right. New Orleans still hopes to upgrade the position, but Henderson will be back to compete for a starting gig with Robert Meachem. Don't expect Henderson to suddenly develop now.

    Re: Vikings | Berrian agrees to terms on six-year contract

    There are only a few WRs left. Randy Moss (who we aren't getting), DJ Hackett, and Bryant Johnson come to mind.

    I said it last night, and I will say it again. Getting rid of Bruce was a mistake, and if we go into this season thinking we can get by with using Hagans, Stanley, or some rookie as the #3, that's a horrible plan.

    I will say I'm happy that we didn't bother with Dev Henderson because he can't catch a cold.

    D.J. Hackett would be a nice pick-up.

    I agree. I believe he could be an awesome slot for us...psh...he could probably even push Bennett for the starting WR2 spot.

    If you're keeping track at home, Bernard Berrian's six year $42 million contract is $12 million more than what we gave Drew Bennett last year. It also includes more than double the signing bonus we gave Bennett.
