Vikings to pursue FA C Jason Brown?

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings could be in pursuit of Baltimore FA C Jason Brown. That would be good news concerning their own impending free agent Matt Birk.

Minnesota and Birk’s reps have reportedly been trying to negotiate a new deal, but nothing yet with free agency a little more than 24 hours away. And it’s not looking optimistic because the story indicated that if the Vikings can’t get Brown they’d then pursue Jeff Saturday.

If they can’t re-sign Birk they might be after Brown, though he’ll have other suitors.

Brown is reportedly looking for monster money. The Pioneer Press reports that Brown might be looking for more than what Tampa Bay C Jeff Faine signed for last offseason, which was 6 yrs. $37.5M and $15M guaranteed. That’s crazy money for Brown in my opinion.

I think the Bills are better off getting an older vet like Birk sign him for a shorter term deal and hope you can get a decent center in the draft to groom behind him for the future.
