Vikings Miss Out Again: Weaver to the Eagles

Add Leonard Weaver to the list of targets the Vikings failed to get their hands on this off-season.  ESPN is reporting that Weaver, a Pro Bowl alternate last season with the Seahawks, has agreed to a one-year, $1.75 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.  This makes it almost a dead-solid certainty that the Vikes will match the offer sheet the Bengals signed Naufahu Tahi to.

So now the Vikings have missed out on four guys they apparently really wanted:  Jordan Gross, who never made it to free agency; Jason Brown who went to St. Louis; T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who went to Seattle because he thinks Tarvaris Jackson is an idiot; and Weaver, who probably also thinks Jackson is an idiot.  What a scintillating off-season this has been.
