Yeah Bouman is a decent back if Brooks goes down. There were a ton of people this year here, who were screaming to let him start a game or two so CPepp could screw his head on straight. It didn't happen, but I wouldn't have lost any sleep if he was going to.
Also I don't know if this is common knowledge 'cause I don't see much about it anywhere, but this winter in Minnesota there was a charity event held by the Vikes. During the day it was all about the kids, and doing good works, and signing autographs and such. At night it when all the kiddies were sleeping or in bed, it became a big drunken frat party. Anyways there was a woman who came forward who said she was raped. There was a lot of speculation as to who was "allegedly" responsible, and Bouman's name finally came up. He hasn't been formally charged with anything, but I do believe he has been asked for DNA samples.
So basically it will be interesting to see what happens with him. Will he be wearing a Saints uniform or a prison uniform next year? I'm sure the Saints know about it, which leads me to believe that they may know something the rest of us in Minny do not. Otherwise why would they even waste a 6th round pick for him?
