Hard to give up on Ponder already. Plus got Cassel. Not convince either of those QBs are the answer. The Vikings just upgraded their defense big time. Floyd is a very young (20 years old) Kevin Williams and they needed to get younger in that position. The Vikings need big CBs due to the big WRs in their division so Rhoades fits that mold. Patterson is boom or bust but definately has great potential... only time will tell.
