Vikings Still After Milloy?

What is a chance at a Super Bowl worth to an owner. $1 million? $2 million? That's the starting point for a middle-of-the-road team looking to add a four-time Pro Bowl safety to the lineup. Lawyer Milloy has the Vikings' interest, but apparently not financially.

With all the moves the Vikings have made since the end of the 2002 season to improve themselves, about the only position untouched has been safety -- perhaps the team's most glaring need.

The closest the Vikings came to making a move was shifting cornerback Corey Chavous from CB to safety. So, it seemed natural that, when Lawyer Milloy became available as a surprise cap casualty of the Patriots, that the Vikings would jump into the mix.

With more money available to spend than any other team, the Vikings have the finances. But it also looks like they don't have a willingness to spend the kind of money Milloy and his agents are looking for.

Buffalo continues to lead the names being mentioned as Milloy's landing spot. It would keep him in the AFC East and reunite him with former teammate Drew Bledsoe. Other teams being mentioned include the Redskins, Saints and Jets.
