Nevermind, Erasmus Was Actually Traded

We weren't wrong when we said that Erasmus James was cut by the Vikings last Friday, but apparently he was, for lack of a better word, "un-cut". Actually, there is a better word for that, and it's called rescinding the move. I had no idea you could get second chances like this in the NFL, but what do I know, I'm just a blogger (althought I don't live in my parent's basement... well, not yet anyways).

This is what actually happened, per the Star Tribune: "It appears to be a savvy move by the Vikings. Because of the holiday weekend, James was not due to go on the waiver wire until 3 p.m. Tuesday. Thus, making it known the team was planning to waive him on Friday actually bought the Vikings three-plus days to listen to trade offers for the 18th-overall pick in the 2005 draft."

So Erasmus James is now a member of the Washington Redskins, in exchange for a 7th round pick in 2009. You may be getting better Vikings, and even smarter, but I'm still not ready to crown you as the NFC North Champions like everyone else. As a Packer fan, I'm scared of that team for sure, but let's not crown their asses just yet.

No idea who that is, by the way.
