They signed NT Kelly Gregg, according to Rotoworld.
I don't understand the Kasay/Mare deal at all. Kasay has more attempted field goals than Mare has successful ones. Mare is only 3 years younger, and paying him at least $5M more. Also, Kasay just got resigned, like last year. Also, he's 7th in kicks converted, 8th in points scored, and tied for 2nd in FGs from 50+ yds.
There's no reason we couldn't have picked up a kicker in a year or two, have them do kick-offs until Kasay retired, then have them do both.
Now, last night Vikes beat writer Judd Zulgad filed a report saying they definitely WEREN'T interested in him (startribune.com), but then an hour ago he tweeted: He has since tweeted that the Vikings said they wouldn't TRADE for Houshmanzadeh...
