  • I think I watched most every Vikings game the last few seasons and never heard the name Shamar Stephen.

  • Depth is good. Cheap depth is better. Cheap good depth is awesome. Whichever one of these it ends up being I will be happy, as long as the contract isn't nut-so, which seems highly unlikely if it happened.

  • If he's an UFA, don't sign him as it would negate Jimmy Graham's comp pick next year.

  • he fits the direction the teams taking this offseason, cheap contract probably short term and hope he shows more than he's had a chance to show elsewhere. It's a flyer season, I've given up on them doing much more than gambling on penny stocks this season. Seems like it's pray to get out of this season without any big stars getting hurt and lets give it a run next year when we got some money to play with.

    I was thinking about this earlier.

    There is a group of guys not getting signed now due to comp picks considerations. So you want to tell them you will sign them as soon as you can after that window opens. Kind of like going after unrestricted free agents after the draft.
    That is all I can think that explains it

  • They could easily sign guys like this and dump them in week 9 for comp pick considerations.

    Plus, if the salary is low enough, there's every chance he wouldn't count towards the final comp pick calculations, either.

  • Nice.

    People have the right to question moves made on the OLine.

    However, as many have pointed on other threads, PC/JS have signed lesser known, rotational, situational DLinemen for years and they have been ranked number 1 on most defensive categories....until last year.

    And, they did that again by signing players like Stephen.

  • 2016 PFF Grade
    DT – Shamar Stephen – 41.2, 109th

    The former seventh-round pick is a good rotational player, but this season he was asked to play the full-time 3-technique role and struggled. An injury to Sharrif Floyd hurt the Vikings’ ability to stop the run. Tom Johnson filled in the pass-rush role well.

    The body type is similar (good comparison) but McDaniels played with unusually good leverage.

  • Back-end rotational player. Can't be disappointed because it's unfair to expect anything from this type of move. Though pretty much all of our moves this offseason have been like this.

  • Nothing wrong with this signing. He made it thru the full season on a team that had a very good defense, so there must be a little talent or he would have been cut.

    We didn't sign him for much ( I bet ) and only one year, so no real risk to the Hawks.

  • These two DLine signings are both proven commodities, neither is an elite presence but they both have been effective and it gives the team a pairing that has played together before. Johnson has had periods of effective pressure on the QB, and Stephen is a stout run defender.

    Both signed for less than what the team would have paid for Richardson. Now if they could only figure out how to acquire some draft picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    He will basically reprise his role as Tom Johnson's back up it seems

  • Johnson is more of 3 tech while Stephen is a NT.

    Both are solid against the run, but Johnson has shown in the past he can pressure the QB.

  • Looks like in 2016 Shamar got 53% of the snaps at DT which made him their #2 DT while Tom Johnson was #3. Then they flipped in 2017. Basically Linvell, Tom, and Shamar.

    We got 2/3 of the interior DL of the #2 run D in the league. I think we are going to be pleasantly surprised with these guys. Proven commodities that can be solid members of a high performing D will fit in nicely here.

  • Stephen does move a lot like McDaniels. Does a nice job here staying low, working through a combo block, and then breaking into the backfield for the stop:

    I can go along with Wenhawk,when we're strapped for cash,trying to fill holes in the roster,these are sensible signings,although not 'flashy',we have talent on DL despite losing Michael and almost certainly Cliff,these signings show there is a well thought out plan,not just tankiing 2018.
