08:22 AM ET 09.03 | He may be hard to move, but that doesn't mean Seattle won't try, and is there a fit in Minneapolis? The Vikings lost out in their pursuit of free agent T.J. Houshmandzadeh in March 2009 when the veteran wide receiver decided to sign a five-year, $40 million deal with Seattle that included $15 million in guarantees. Now it appears the Vikings could have another shot at Houshmandzadeh -- if they are interested. The Seahawks are actively shopping Houshmandzadeh, according to NFL sources. ... Seattle is believed to be trying to unload Houshmandzadeh because it would like an opportunity to clear salary space to potentially add disgruntled San Diego wide receiver Vincent Jackson in a trade.

I'm not a Vikes fan, but this would be a good addition for them.

Minny finds themselves with unexpected gaps at wide receiver. Patrick Crayton's available from Dallas, it looks like. On the other hand, I don't think the Cowboys want to do anything to help a team they might meet in the playoffs.

As for Seattle? Playoffs? Don't talk about....playoffs. Playoffs?

I don't think Minnesota needs Houshmandzadeh. Don't get me wrong, they sorely need a number in the absence of Rice, but I don't think that's Housh. He's a good complimentary receiver, as he was in Cincy alongside Chad Johnson, but he's not a gut that you can build a corps. around. I think he is a big name, but he does the same thing that Greg Camarillo does.

shipping Patrick Crayton classifies as "help"?

I liked ole Pete at USC. I also like watching college coaches fail in the NFL. I doubt Pete will disappoint me.

hasnt roy been your one bright spot so far this preseason

Better get the old coot someone to throw to... otherwise this team may as well reenact the Viking ritual of setting that ship on fire and casting out onto Lake Superior.

My enthusiasm for Dallas ends with the cheerleaders. Inside the lines, I like the Pats.

It got pretty hot on board the last time the Vikings took a ride on a boat.

Mornin', Otis.

The new Viking ritual is a ship with lots and lots of hookers on it. they reenact it every training camp.
