DB workouts

The Viking players may be off, but the scouting department keeps on working.

On Thursday, the Vikings worked out two defensive backs. Tim Mixon, who played at California, and Jereme Perry, who spent the 2006 season with the Cleveland Browns.

Mixon was cut from the Browns practice squad on Sept. 15.

Mixon is an interesting player.

He was an All-Pac 10 cornerback and punt returner in 2005. But he suffered a major right knee injury and missed the 2006 season.

While he was an outstanding cornerback, Mixon was also a dynamic returner, averaging 14.9 yards per punt return, including a 79-yard touchdown.

Perry was an undrafted free agent in 2006, but he played in 12 games because of injuries last season.

Perry also can play safety.

Cutting Dovonte Edwards in favor of keeping Whitaker was just plain stupid. Charles Gordon can cover better then Griffin yet he isn't given a chance. Gordon can return punts as well. The Vikings braintrust never sleeps....

Sean, Do you know what became of Laroni Gallishaw. Undrafted FA CB, looked great in 2005 camp and made the team under Tice. Childress cut him in 06.

Childress cut all of Tice's good guys. Gallishaw, Dustin Fox, Ryan Hoag. Not to mention letting go of Jermaine Wiggins.
