Here's your daily smile. Someone thinks more highly of Naufahu Tahi than the Vikings.
The Vikings are interested in signing Seattle fullback Leonard Weaver to replace Tahi. (Update: Weaver has signed with the Eagles.) But if that doesn't work out, couldn't Jeff Dugan do the job? The Vikes started handing the ball to Dugan in short yardage situations at the end of last year and as a tight end, he's a better pass receiver than Tahi ever was. And he can block. And he's under contract. And he's cheap.
Here is the latest on the Jay Cutler situation.
If the Broncos are indeed going to try and smooth things over with Cutler, I think that's the right call by Denver management. But I still think the team will trade him by draft day. I wonder if the Vikings are one of the 10 teams that called about Cutler?
Finally, the National Football Post's Wes Bunting has been producing all sorts of interesting stories about potential draftees this winter. Here is one on some of the better middle linebacker prospects.
