Onterrio news

Former Vikings running back Onterrio Smith, who has been out of the NFL since receiving a one-year suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy nearly two years ago, has applied for reinstatement.

"He's been out of the league two years, but you know the talent's there," Smith's agent, Doug Hendrickson, told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "He's still young. A lot of teams need a back. I think someone will take a chance on him and bring him to camp."

Smith signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League last summer but was cut during training camp.

Ah, the Stoner Of the Draft wants to return to the NFL. I remember he had fairly good hands out of the backfield; maybe he could be one of the Vikes' many #4 WRs.

I was sad to see that Kevin Willis signed with the Mavericks. That must mean that he cancelled his visit to Winter Park. He's got everything that Childress seems to look for in a WR; size, good hands, character, no starting experience in the NFL.

He would have been a superb red zone threat. But if I were him, I'd definitely take less money to join a playoff team, as he did.
