What is Matt Birk trying to do here? Matt Birk is one of the best at his postion and the leader of our team. I donnot like the way he is trying to get the BIG bucks. He is in the last year of his contract and will be a Free Agent next season. He also will be MIA for the Vikes Organized Team Activities unless he gets a new deal. I believe that the Vikes will give him the deal that he wants, and it will make us all happy. Birk will retire as a Viking.
