    I voted Bowe but I am afraid of the money. But IF Harvin goes, then Bowe would be worth the money. If Harvin stays then Barden would be a nice investment but I would only sign him for a 2 year deal (Barden) and use a high draft pick on a WR (2nd rounder or third). I've always liked Bowe and would love to see the guy in purple and Gold.
    Flash!...... Aaha!!

    I have a feeling we will resign Simpson for a year. Being suspended for the first 3 games of the season and then the fluke back injury really threw him off his game in my opinion. I would be fine giving him another 1 or 2 year deal on the cheap to see if he can improve. He was looking a little better near the end of this year. So that crosses Mike Wallace off the list.

    After Frazier talked about Harvin today I don't think we will be trading him. The value Harvin gives us is much greater to us than what the market is going to give us back for his services. So that crosses Jennings off the list. Even if we don't bring back Harvin I don't see why Wright wouldn't be given a shot in the slot before going out and spending money on Jennings.

    That leaves Bowe as the only viable option that is left and I just don't see us coughing up the money to sign him. Like other have said Barden is probably a better option just because of the price tag. If Heyward-Bey is also available he would fit this role pretty nicely too. So that basically crosses Bowe off the list unless we somehow decide to open up the checkbook.

He is raw but you gotta be intrigued by a guy who is 6'6 225 pounds and has some decent wheels. Give me DHB and Ramses Barden and I'd be fairly happy with that.
    These are probably the best two names after Bowe, Jennings and Wallace. It is going to be interesting to see how the market shapes up, and weather drastically over-paying for guys becomes the new norm. I liked both Vincent Jackson and Pierre Garcon, but I can't say that I'm sore that neither of them are Vikings considering what we would have had to pay to land them.

Then if Harvin wants to get paid how do we smooth over the fact Bowe would come in with a 9 million contract when Harvin is the one that has left it on the field for this team? That is why Speilman will go Barden. A younger player with upside and then keep Havin and probably resign Simpson to a cheap deal.
    Hell yeah guys! Barden will be a great pick-up for us! I would be ecstatic if we signed him and got on of the sexy wr's in this draft class.

    Bowe is the dream signing but realistically I see us picking up someone like Danario Alexander, resigning Percy and drafting a WR in the second rd. I'm hoping we take a shut-down corner in the first. Banks or Rhodes would be nice.
    Catch 22: run or pass, you're screwed either way!

    Reports are saying that the Chargers will place the highest tender of Alexander (a 1st and 3rd). No way the Vikings even sniff him at that price tag. Which this bothers me a lot because as soon as Alexander was released by the Rams I really wanted us to take a chance on him.

    I cant wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and were standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and were all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him hes world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.

    I would of loved to have landed Garcon. I'm hoping that with Bowe/Wallace/Jennings on the market that teams over look DHB and Barden and we can swoop them up while the rest fight over the top guys. However, if we trade Percy then this is a different story.
