I'm glad he chose the Vikes, but damn! He could easily start there at some point this year, and actually might not be a bad pairing with Walker for next year ... Like I said, I'm glad he chose the purple, but I think I would have jumped Viking ship and held my nose for a year or two in cheeseland.
Personally, I'm tipping my cap to K-Rob and his agent Alvin Keels. In a Drew Rosenhaus era where sports agents really are the bottom of the ethical barrel, I think Team Koren should get some respect for honoring their commitment to the Vikes with the promise to be release & then re-sign to save MIN a big cap hit.
They likely could have slimed out of it & gotten a higher bid from a desperate Packers front office, but they actually lived up to their word when most agents & players don't even like to live up to their written contracts.
Who knows, maybe there's more to it than that, probably is. But I'm going to prefer to think they did the right thing.
