610 just mentioned that there are unconfirmed rumors floating around that Smoot's signing today.

I have heard (unrelated) reports that he's in Minnesota today, but I've also heard he's in Green Bay. I can't find anything online yet.

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports free agent CB Fred Smoot (Redskins) has reached a contract agreement with the Minnesota Vikings. The five-year deal, with incentives, could be worth up to $35 million. It also includes a $12 million signing bonus


no link, unconfirmed, so reader beware

Eh. Rather have Law or get Surtain. Smoot was down the list.

I believe this has been proven as a false rumor

No, Smoot did NOT sign w/ the Vikings today. This is a massive 'net hoax that swept through cyber-space a couple hours ago. Been watching ESPNEWS for over an hour and nothing on Smoot and the Vikes...

I'd be very surprised to see this happen for the Vikes, especially right now. The team is likely going to be sold in the next month or so, and Red McCombs is asking all FA to defer their signing bonuses until the new owner takes over. They lost Pierce because of this, but convinced Williams to take it...

The Vikings and free-agent cornerback Fred Smoot were close to reaching an agreement on a lucrative multiyear contract, a team source told the FAN on Tuesday afternoon.

I'm continuing to check this out. Some folks are saying the Smoot signing w/ Minne. is true but someone leaked the news before a formal agreement was made. Been looking at some Vikes sites...Christ, you think Chiefs fans are rough on Peterson, you should read some of the diatribes about Red McCombs...

I want Smoot. He's young, talented, and has attitude.

A good buddy of mine at work is a die-hard Viking fan, and I can confirm this one. He just bashed on Red every chance he gets!!
