A Vikings player that made their name while being a Viking then came to the Packers. I can't think of any.

Gilbert Brown and Koren Robinson are the only two I can think of that played for Vikings then Packers. Neither made their name with the Vikings.

Ding Ding Ding! Well done!

Wait! OOOOOPS! NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Gilbert Brown never played a down for the Queens. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the '93 draft, and was WAIVED by MIN in the final roster cutdown, August 30th, 1993. Green Bay signed him on August 31st, 1993.

And, Koren played just one year in MIN, 2005, primarily as their kick returner... He only played in 5 games for them, amassing a whopping 22 catches and 1 TD...

So, Vikings? That's the best you got? Holy Fuck!

Why the hell would ANY Viking player ever go to GB? The promises of gold and honey? That's like King Leonidas giving in to Xerxes. You guys are delusional. There's a reason why your players often sign smaller deals with us (and still succeed). Sure, may have been at the twilight of their careers. It's called older and WISER.

Not that any of you clowns know what the later word means..

"Succeed?"
Yeah...you are right.
Favre, Sharper and Longwell got several Super Bowl rings while playing for the Vikings.
Oh.....wait.....if by "succeed" you mean they looked so much better when playing for the Vikings because the Vikings as a team are so much lower talent wise that the EX-Packer players LOOKED "great", yeah, i can agree with that![grin1]

I'd put money down on the Packers winning another, before the Vikings win their first.

Packers | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:05:01 -0700

The Green Bay Packers made an offer to Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings that averaged about $8 million per season, but he decided to accept the Vikings' contract offer of about $9 million per season.


It's all about the money with Jennings face it.



Patriots | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:15:35 -0700

The New England Patriots offered Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings a contract worth around $6 million per season but the talks between the two sides did not go far.

I hate to admit it, but I wouldn't be surprised. I've said this before, the Football Gods hate Minnesota. Hell, the Sports Gods hate Minnesota. '87 and '91 were flukes.

Where's the sources? I was seeing different numbers, but will admit being wrong if your source is accurate.
